This is this a sign of the apocalypse.
Upon us right that many people -- watching it.
I think the side of the apocalypse is when kids outside the eastern seaboard start -- -- -- characters I think right now it's contained.
But once this comes natural trend all over the country then you probably one leg at a cabin in the woods -- probable.
I don't know the stagnation I just don't get -- -- nothing better to watch.
Well there's definitely a cultural anthropology -- I think I mean this is this fascinating tribal people who die themselves -- and how weird dances mopping fist pumping in -- You know a lot of -- it's -- -- out of this.
Sure I don't know jwoww the situation.
You might ideally having the DJ's name is finally I guess Paulie.
Chris -- happy and you know what I'm in July I've watched.
Twenty minutes of the first episode of the first season.
But I know all of their names I know all about it on.
The situation makes a million dollars a year in endorsements and whatnot so what we know more about them and then actually people watching the -- and had to be good news for MTV they want people want to show them already.
It's what -- branded themselves so well I -- in the second season -- basically just started playing the characters they were in the first season I -- they all know this is my catch phrase I've got to do the situation they -- nationally jabs.
Snooki knows she's supposed to get -- and fall down I mean -- basically just following the Prius -- -- That's a how many people are after watching the show.
Well upwards of five million but.
You know how many of you want -- -- for somebody combat -- to another hot -- I mean is it getting more viewers and American Idol a rebound and on American Idol as the champion all the way it's probably there were American Idol does -- but for cable show I mean the cost nothing to produce a system went to kids in and out of the beach.
It's and credit has been incredibly profitable -- just got arrested is this -- do you think ploy to boost ratings and you can be this is where it gets a little -- Andre it looks -- -- and disorderly conduct should have beer bong.
We don't know what was in the beer -- if I wonder if Coca-Cola.
The moon let me ask you get into the issue here have are these people in on the joke.
You know some of them definitely seem like they are Snooki kinda wonder I mean they're getting busted for this.
Will we see a drop off and -- two weeks three weeks what was a lot of fascination because like I said everybody now knows about who these characters are they'd never seen it before they wanna see -- one and then now we'll start to see a drop Buffy thing.
-- last season a growing group yes I mean I think you're getting this season people who were really following the show the first time around another heard the jokes on late night and everything else yes and you know they -- so what's this all about and maybe that maybe those people to other friends and it could get bigger and better and.
I'm trying to think about when -- seen something like this before and it was really hot and then it just fizzle out I mean.
And -- think Jessica -- in reality show that was it.
All the buzz when I was -- on TV but I mean this could go away tomorrow right.
Absolutely and I mean.
Yeah attending a lot of isn't really good for a career in television if I -- -- -- who knows how long these guys who -- -- -- the other part about this too is MTV the actual network community turned 29 years old this past weekend.
They certainly -- a lot different now than they were when they first started.
Where they heading because MTV VH one it's all a reality now is -- about it -- music television anymore but how much can they push the envelope what where's the next reality show coming from.
What they've got to try to find the next sort of this like this type thing not that this is this is kind of a freak show kind of a sideshow I think.
But they've got to fund the thing that really -- -- on people and then the kids will embrace and go that's what I wanna be here.
You got some that I've never heard of before.
And big key demographic.
Of this show are people in the forties and fifties I think there's a few I mean my mom those -- the dangers -- -- but it's mostly young people we're watching going -- -- this isn't real right.
The imam is that she's off right now for mentioning -- losers and doing the same -- Thanks Tim good to -- is really like -- -- managing editor at TV guide dot com.
