It's a miracle that Jersey Shore is still good in 2018
"Somehow, Jersey Shore Family Vacation has figured out a way to be simultaneously so utterly predictable and wildly surprising," says Lea Palmieri. She thinks the Jersey Shore revival works because "now it’s a brand new show featuring all the same old stuff that made it a success in the first place. MTV didn’t try to change the formula — they needed this one to be a hit, so they backed off and let the beloved personalities carry them to their biggest ratings in years."

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."
