It looks like everyone you know watched the fourth season premiere of Jersey Shore on MTV last night. The Thursday debut of the hit reality show was the most-watched show of the night, and just a step behind the all-time biggest Shore episode on MTV, January's premiere.

8.8 million people tuned-in for Jersey Shore, which is roughly the population of New York City. Either this is a sign of the apocalypse, or a sign that everyone loves Snooki and The Situation. Probably the former. But does anyone really mind?
