Jersey Shore: Series Premiere - open thread

Joel already posted about the controversy surrounding the new MTV reality show Jersey Shore. Is it insulting to Italians? To people who live in New Jersey? To anyone with good taste? I think I'm more offended that we have yet another lame show about young people living in a house (though the use of the word "Guido" is bizarre to me - I'm from a huge Italian family and I've never heard anyone use that term - and equating being Italian with tanning and the use of hair gel).

It premiered last night. What did you think? Here's the episode if you missed it.

I think it's a good show. Im not Italian or anything so the terms "guido" or "guidette" don't offend me or anything, but I think it's a laugh. It's a harmless show, just a bunch of people out to have a good time. Then again, I could be biased because I think Ronnie is hot! & I'd hate for MTV to axe the show.

My opinion anyways :)
