"Jersey Shore" Season 5 premieres Thursday, so we asked our staff and guests to reveal which show they think is so done.

In what seems to be the longest week of my life, the arrival of my Thursday-night obsession couldn’t have come soon enough. We were tempted with a halfway-decent episode last week, which set us up for a 75 percent OK episode this week. How did it...

Here we go, everyone: Episode two of the fifth (and probably final) season of "Jersey Shore." Did we get a hair-pulling, kooka-flashing, Situation-bashing bomb of an episode this week? Well …
