"Jersey Shore" has officially lost another sponsor -- Dell Computers -- and this time, the PC Company is accusing the show of "ethnic bashing."

Dell Pulls Ads from 'Jersey Shore' Over PC Claim

LOL, I love it. These Italians prance and play and make fools of themselves and because some of us find it funny we are suddenly bigoted racists with a latent hatred for Italian Americans? Get over it. I suppose those who watch Chris Rock and find him funny are racists too, he should go back and learn the history of his people and their struggles rather than making jokes right? Can you even BE racists against yourself like that? Yep, some people just take things WAY to serious.

Too Funny. NOW THEY PULL their ads. The show has been on for 3 weeks now and MTV doesn't even promote the word Guido anymore. This is also a response to any asking if this show is Real. The answer is YES. I actually live on the Jersey Shore(not in the town where the show was filmed)and you can't escape these types. If anyone wants to see where where MTV got the idea for this show, go to you tube and search Guido Beach. Very funny vid.

It may not be on the top 10 list but this little show has doubled it's ratings in just 4 episodes. I guess Pine isn't such a butt after all.

From TV Guide-

Things just keep getting better at the Jersey Shore.

Ratings for the MTV reality series increased to 2.5 million viewers Thursday night. In the adults ages 18-49 demo, the show rocketed 27 percent to a 1.4 rating. Shore also earned a 2.2 rating among women ages 18-34.

Jersey Shore attacker apologizes to Snooki

Thursday's episode made headlines days before its premiere, specifically after a clip of cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi getting punched at a bar went viral. MTV later decided to black out the scene.

Jersey Shore — which follows the tanning, fist-pumping and partying ways of eight Italian Americans — debuted to 1.3 million viewers Dec. 4.

Go youtube "My New Haircut." Its pretty funny and makes fun of these types of people.

Seriously, i'm from Jersey. The majority of the people from Jersey are not like this. However there are people from Jersey that are like this as well as those from NY that come to NJ during the summer. They act just like this. Its the reason i avoid popular beaches and going to clubs where i know people like this flood.

But you do have these kinds of people. They are the embarassing ones but they are the ones MTV always puts on TV. Notice the past MTV True Life "I Have a Summer Share" and "I Have a Summer Share 2." The group of guys were these meathead Italians that thought they were the kings of the Jersey Shore. The 2nd was a group of Italian females that thought they ran things and they were so hot. People go down to the Jersey Shore and act like thats their home and they run things there.

These type of people draw a reaction and get ratings so thats why they put them on tv.

Its not interesting getting the normal people from NJ and filming them. Its basically just partying which is what people do everywhere so why watch. But throw on these people that call themselves guidos and have a warped mind and think everything revolves around them, and it gets ratings.
