If it ain't broke, don't fix it ... And in my opinion, Jersey Shore doesn't need any fixing. Which is why I was slightly irritated when I heard that Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola have been approached for their own spin-off show. Now don't get me wrong, I've been 100 percent Team Sammi since day one, but I'm still against this idea.
To quote my boy Sitch, this is, like, the end of civilization. This could ruin Jersey Shore for good. I don't think you understand. This is a bad time, you guys.
Don't they know what they're getting themselves into?
The reason why Jersey Shore has been so successful the past six seasons is because of the group dynamic. It's an ensemble cast -- you don't just take one or two people out of the group and expect the same results, do you? Well, apparently MTV does.
Remember Friends? Of course you do. Everyone loved that group ... Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey. And do you remember what happened when Joey decided to venture out on his own? No? Well, that's because no one watched Joey venture out on his own ... because you're not supposed to break up the group!
I mean, Snooki and JWOWW may be hilarious on Jersey Shore ... but on their spin-off? It seems pretty forced. And don't even get me started with The Pauly D Project. And now a potential Ronnie/Sam show? It's just overkill. Sooner or later, people are going to grow tired of these characters.
It just sounds a little Kardashian-esque to me. What's next? The Situation & Deena Take Seaside? No, no, no, a thousand times no. They should stick to their #1 show on MTV ... and stop trying to milk their fame for all it's worth.
Would you watch a Ronnie & Sammi spin-off show? Or would you rather continue watching them on Jersey Shore with the rest of the cast?
