Reality TV is eating itself with the return of Jersey Shore and Trading Spaces
The return of Trading Spaces on Saturday and Jersey Shore tonight with a Family Vacation season will test whether two relics of a more naive time in reality television can hold up, says Jon Caramanica. "The reality television of the 2000s was a proving ground and a wide-open playing field, a thing you could graduate from to do better things, emotionally or professionally," he says. "Those stars — of the docudrama hall-of-fame series Jersey Shore and the standard-setting home renovation show Trading Spaces — arrived as neophytes and left as savvy instacelebs, beneficiaries of the early wave of reality king- and queen-making. But as the end of the 2010s approaches, reality TV has become an ouroboros, so self-referential and saturated that opportunities for advancement — or growth, or shock — have winnowed. It has become its own career path, and its innovations are slowing."

The MTV star faces up to five years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine, according to TMZ. But the judge will allow him to reunite with his MTV pals in Florida to film Jersey Shore Family Vacation before his formal sentencing on April 25. The Situation initially faced up to 15 years in prison. The Situation's attorneys said in a statement to the court that he has turned his life around into "something positive" and has been sober for two years: "We hope that the Court will consider the totality of the circumstances, including Michael’s minor role in the offense, and impose a fair sentence. In the meantime, he will continue to entertain millions on Jersey Shore and thanks everyone who has expressed support.”
