Jersey Shore'Jersey Shore' continues to shatter ratings records for MTV.

According to the Live Feed, Thursday's episode, featuring the Snooki arrest fallout and JWoww's breakup, was seen by 8.9 million viewers. This is MTV's largest audience for a series telecast ever -- the previous record was set a few weeks ago after the season 2.5 premiere. Last week's episode had 8.6 million viewers.

'Jersey Shore's' audience is about two times the size of NBC's 'Community.' Just sayin'.

I didn't like the episode with Criminal Minds Suspect Behavior. I hope it fails too. Maybe then they will bring back AJ Cook. If anyone from CBS reads this keep Paget and brink back AJ!
