You've had good luck today, but I wouldn't expect anything less from stats that impressive.

In...I also got my envelope today, and I live relatively close to NYC (in PA). The mail can be so weird sometimes.

Congrats to everyone!

not to be a brat about it, but that jersey shore show is the most racist, awful thing i've ever seen. no one would ever dream of putting a show on mtv called 'ghetto people of west philadelphia,' but when it's italians everyone just laughs at the dumb guidos.

If they weren't so annoying, someone might find it offensive.

Maureen's power hungry and Serena's an idiot. Easy enough.

Also, I can't watch Jersey Shore because I grew up going to Seaside Heights and I don't want to ruin all of my childhood memories.

but of course there are going to be unlikeable people who belong to any ethnic group who are willing to play up negative stereotypes about their culture to get on TV. that doesn't make it unoffensive. it's a shame that for lots of italian-americans that's what they assume their culture to be. educated italian-americans have distanced themselves from italian and italian-american culture to such a large degree because of the negative stereotypes associated with it. it's hurt the community as a whole and it just sucks that mtv would perpetuate it and that a few dumb 20 year olds don't realize what they're doing to their culture just to be on tv.

walking around acting like you're in a gang is a lifestyle choice too, but people don't make fun of that. instead we talk about ways to help members of that community.

obviously italian americans arent in gangs or dealing drugs to a large degree, but that doesn't mean that they aren't taught to not value education etc and that the resulting behavior is something to just make fun of.

It's about making fun people who choose a guido lifestyle, a preponderance of which happen to be italian-americans. The Hills is about making fun of people who choose the lifestyle of trust-fund babies on the west coast, a preponderance of which happen to be WASPs.

I was all for some Jersey Shore discussion... but not so much now I guess.


sorry to burst everyone's bubble. if you want to make a thread just for it i'll leave it alone. hating on italian americans is the only thing i ever get up in arms about.

Exactly what i was thinking. There's also the Real Housewives show, which could be seen as making fun of WASPS (OC) or AAs (Atlanta). Reality TV makes fun of people of all races.

Since when has exploiting stereotypes for entertainment purposes ever been a problem? Look at all the "in the hood" movies or Chapelle Show. They use stereotypes to generate revenue. It is entertainment and nothing else. If people are ignorant enough to take these shows and movies and think and apply those values to everyone of that race, ethnicity, or persuasion than maybe we should do a show about those people. Ignorant Housewives of the South!

Yeah, I'm way over that storyline. And I was a little weirded out by Chuck seeing/conversing with his dad this week. But the scene in the hospital? Give that man an emmy ;-)

And TLS has officially transitioned into NY Mag.
