Reality series premieres to 5.3 million viewers

To absolutely no one’s surprise, the second-season premiere of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” was a big hit with the teen crowd and was the year’s top cable telecast in the 12-34 demo.

Snooki and Co.’s jaunt from the Garden State to Miami garnered a 5.1 rating in the demo, as well as 5.3 million overall viewers – both series records.

The 5.3 million viewers marked a 280% increase from the series premiere in December and the rating was the best for an MTV season premiere since season two of “The Osbournes” in 2002.
