Call it a comeback with a vengeance! The ratings for last night’s season premiere of Jersey Shore 3 were huge—like, gorilla juicehead huge. The series pulled in 8.4 million viewers, which makes it MTV’s most-watched series telecast of all time.
In MTV’s 12-34 demographic, Shore was up 63 percent from season two’s opener. Even more impressive is that the show had a 4.2 adult demo rating, which is higher than any show on the big broadcast networks last night, except for The Big Bang Theory and Grey’s Anatomy (which Shore tied). [EW]
