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."

Snooki is still hopeful that Sammi Sweetheart will return for Jersey Shore Family Vacation
“We're all begging her to come back on the show,” Snooki said on her podcast. “It's really up to her. Everyone pray that Sammi comes back, because I feel like she might change her mind. So Sam, if you're listening, come to the show. Like, stop being — stop it. Stop it right now before I spank you.”

From the perspective of 2017, it’s hilarious that Jersey Shore was even considered controversial

“Since the Jersey Shore reunion is what passes for good news these days,” says Amy Zimmerman, “it’s easy to forget that the series was not universally beloved when it premiered. In fact, the Jersey Shore was controversial—which is hilarious in comparison to the increasingly dark controversies that have come to define the entertainment world in 2017.” ALSO: The “Snooki Blueprint” seems outdated for reality shows seeking Generation Z.

The Situation is miffed that he wasn't consulted. And Snooki points out that as a 29-year-old married mother of two, she “can still funnel wine and do cartwheels on the dance floor.”
