It’s getting a bit ridiculous how I write again and again about Jersey Shore’s record ratings. But it keeps breaking them, so I keep going to keep you posted!
Yes, Jersey Shore set another ratings record for MTV, getting 8.9 million viewers, and inching every week towards the 9 million viewer mark. The show delivered a record 4.7 Adults 18-49 rating, becoming the third highest rated show of the week, broadcast or cable, just behind American Idol and the AFC Championship Game. It became MTV’s most watched series telecast ever, topping the previous record by 300,000 viewers. The numbers are just staggering. It got a 13% share among all adults 18-49 that were watching television at the time, which would be great for broadcast, but Jersey Shore airs on cable; and that is unheard of.
This is the third time in the last 3 weeks that I’ve mentioned Jersey Shore breaking records for MTV; I’m seriously running out of headlines, so please help!
