Geordie Shore

'Jersey Shore' U.K. Spin-Off, 'Geordie Shore,' An Instant Hit

Cast of 'Geordie Shore'MTV's new reality show, 'Geordie Shore,' premiered in the U.K. Tuesday night and pulled in over 330,000 viewers, the largest audience there for the network in over three years.

'Geordie Shore' is based in the North East English city of Newcastle upon Tyne. Locals -- known as "Geordies" -- are renowned for their hard-partying ways and ability to survive the challenging local weather conditions year-round wearing as few clothes as possible.

Like its U.S. predecessor, the show has attracted huge controversy amid fears that it portrays its host location in an unfavorable light. 'The Sun' newspaper reports that the premiere episode, which featured the eight cast members --a.k.a. "lads and lasses" -- making out, boozing, vomiting and stripping, has already spawned a Facebook page highly critical of the show and a petition to get it taken off the air.

It's like a more attractive parody version of our favorite Macaroni Rascals, but just as tan and drunk. Probably the same amount of hair product, too.

Check out the video after the jump.
