Jersey Shore going to Italy

Well, it looks like season four of Jersey Shore is no longer going to be about the Jersey Shore – it’s going to be about the old country.  The cast are headed to Italy, where they will film the entire season for export back to the United States.

There have been mixed reactions to the announcement.  Fans of the show are generally excited to see the crew heading abroad, but some Italian-American interest groups are concerned that the cast’s less-than-stellar behavior and questionable intelligence will cast a bad light not only on Italian Americans, but on America in general.  The decision has been called “denigrating” and some groups are boycotting the show as a result.
