After six seasons (five too many), MTV is finally canceling Jersey Shore. What with the original cast going on to do other frightful things like reproduce, it’s time to close the doors on the Jersey Shore house. Obama killed bin Laden, and now Jersey Shore is also ending on his watch.
As if it’s some sort of surprise or big fucking deal that a musician— or anyone really— smokes weed, especially at a music festival, MTV published photos of singer Rihanna smoking blunts at the Coachella festival (above), saying that it “sparked controversy”. The best part was Rihanna’s response on Twitter, which gives me a newfound respect for her.
With the credentials of MTV’s biggest show ever behind them, the creators of Jersey Shore are now casting for a geek reality show called “Fandom Rising” that will do for geek culture what Jersey Shore did for orange tanned Italian-Americans.
It’s been 14 years since Beavis and Butthead were last on the air and last night, the duo returned to MTV and other than a change in what they’re watching on TV, it’s almost like they never left. If you had any doubts for some reason that Mike Judge has lost his edge in that time, let me assure you that Beavis and Butthead is just as hilarious now as it used to be, maybe even a little moreso.
I mean yeah, it would be even cooler if they were making new Liquid Television episodes, but having all of the Liquid TV episodes available online is still pretty fucking cool. Time to fire one up, kick back and watch my eyeballs melt out of my skull.
