MTV's newest docu-soap exposes one of the tri-state area's most misunderstood species...the GUIDO. Don't miss the 2-hour premiere of 'Jersey Shore' on Thursday, December 3 at 10pm ET/PT.

Short commercial preview can be found here.

My joy knew no bounds when I saw the commercial for this the other day. It's like Christmas, Easter, my birthday, and a summer down at the Shore all rolled into one!

Didn't MTV have a show on the True Life series called "I'm spending the summer on the Jersey shore" or something like that? This looks like the long version of that.

Oh God, so much good can come of this! Hilarity will ensue! (and I'm not being sarcastic)

Ugh. Saw the preview last night. I don't know where the hell I've been all my life but the only place I've ever seen people like that is on tv!! They have to be fake, right? Even the girls on "I'm Going to the Jersey Shore" or whatever that True Life was weren't this bad.

I haven't been so excited about a TV show before in my life. I hope we get a Staten Island show girls to replace The Hills and The City.

I don't know why it took MTV this long to figure out that the tacky are far more entertaining than the hip!

Now if they would just set one of these "docu-soaps" in a trailer park, my world would be complete.

I believe Cops has that market covered. Although I would totally watch it, too, if MTV did it.

Heh. I actually had to explain what a Guido is to my best friend a few years back. Which was odd, because I've been on the plane to Miami with enough of them when visiting her, but maybe they just don't get past South Beach.

The interesting thing is how guido culture never really evolves. Like you can spot a middle-aged guidette who was into Bon Jovi 20-something years ago a mile away. Put her next to her teenage daughter, and you've got the same tan, overdyed hair, tight trendy clothes, acrylic nails, gaudy jewelry, etc.

I can't wait for this.

I'm so sorry for people from New Jersey. I feel your pain at being misrepresented but I gotta watch this.

I'm curious if the Guidos realize they're tacky and just own it or are they really lacking that self-awareness and actually think they're cool?

I love the commercial! What is with the fist-pumping?? Is that actually a thing to do? I mean, maybe you do it at a concert or something, but really, this is the activity by which you define yourselves? "Watch my show, man, SO MUCH fist pumping!" And then they show a bunch of fist-pumping clips and the one guy has a huge pit stain! This is going to be so good.

As an added bonus, the premiere of this show means MTV is showing the Jersey shore True Life episodes again and again.

The one with the blowout (Growing Up Gotti hair) has Cadillac down his side in their font. Go straight to douchebag.
Guidos
Oh dear, there's more. Pauly

Also, you know you're a guido when 3/4 of your male friends use the childish diminutive of their name well into adulthood- Ronnie, Paulie, Vinnie, etc.

Before the snark begins, I must say that I like that the girls look healthy and toned, but haven't bought into the "must be rail thin" mentality of the young women in the "The City" socio-economic milieu.

Ok, I need to see photos of Nicole during the winter, because the girl is like two shades darker than me (and I'm black) and the obviously fake blue contacts are killing me.

WOW. I missed that one. Skin rip, tribal and tramp stamp. That's the holy trifecta of bad tattoo-ness. And getting a brand name and logo tattooed on oneself is just sad, really and has wider cultural implications. I'm sure a sociol anthropologist would have interesting things to say about that.

Weird airbrushing in the chest area.

Don't forget the right arm. The R.I.P. BILLY cross is arguably more aesthetically pleasing than the others, but I still find it tacky to treat one's body as the cover of a memorial program.

There's a two minute trailer up. One girl describes herself as "the Kim Kardashian of Staten Island". Keep reaching for the stars, folks.

The guy in the trailer who says "I a good-looking, well-groomed Italian who is very, very good with the ladies," he's like 40, right?

"I'm a bartender. I do...you know...great things." OMG I cannot freaking wait! **pumps fists madly**

I truly cannot wait until this show. I am Italian and it just cracks me up how some of these people think they are so hot and that nobody can touch them. Frankly, they look pathetic and it just looks like this show is going to be a laugh fest, with us laughing soley at them.

Hahaha!

I just came into this forum because I am spending Thanksgiving with my family and I am bored out of my skull. You people are cracking me up! I can't wait to start Tivoing this show!

And 'Jolie' has a rather... unfortunate face. The trailer has me just stunned. It takes all kinds, I suppose.

I saw another commercial for it, and I couldn't tell the basis of the show. Is it basically Real World: Jersey Shore, where they cast the show, or did they find a group of friends who already had a house to follow?
