    just before I looked at the draft 4 $8702, I have faith that my neighbour was like they say actually bringing in money part-time from their laptop.. there uncles cousin had bean doing this 4 less than 17 months and recently cleard the depts on there mini mansion and got themselves a Chevrolet.

    sad to see how Jersey Shore lost the audience and ratings it used to have even as far as season 5. I think the first 3 seasons were gold! the 4th was still pretty good, the fifth got a little boring and this 6th and final one was probably the weakest one. It just wasn’t the same, all the cast but 2 were in relationships so that affected the partying and drama. At least it was the third highest rated episode this season i think, after the premiere of episode’s 1 and 2 airing back to back. So sad!!! :(

    I hope that RHOM gets renewed. Its a really good ensemble show unlike RHONJ AND RHONY.

  • THE OLD MAN

    As the Jersey Boys sing “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” Snooki & JWow bleat back, ONO not I, “I Will Survive!”

  • Melanie

    I enjoyed the RHOM finale and the whole season, so I hope it gets renewed. I have a strong feeling it will. Overall, it did slightly better than last season and was a whole lot more entertaining. The reunion looks like it will be alot of fun also.

  • davie

    ALways Sunny didn’t have that great of a season compared to Season 7′s ratings.

  • JNewt

    Jersey Shore was nothing more than a bad fad.

  • Luke

    Jersey Shore used to feel spontaneous and somewhat real, especially the first season. But the last 2 seasons were scripted to the max, just like The Hills. And these people aren’t good actors.

  • DomCA25

    I love RHOM I hope it comes back

  • Bill

    Always Sunny was pretty terrible. Bad end to a blah season. hopefully next year is better or I can t see it getting renewed.

  • John A

    Yeah Sunny was bad this year about 3 eps were okish. Hope Season 9 will be better.

  • Daniel Quintanilla

    Melissa first, JS’s biggest year was 2012 (season 1 & 2).

    And JS series finale was only one-tenth higher than THE HILLS series finale (18-49).

  • I like this show

    It’s Always sunny has been pretty bad the last 2 seasons. The League sorta faded out some but still quality. I am glad it got renewed as for Sunny I honestly do not care at this point it’s that bad.

  • Daniel Quintanilla

    Melissa: Correction: 2010

    Dan S,

    Agreed, great final episode. However, Burn Notice’s viewership isn’t going to increase by magic, regardless of whether there is network competition or not. The viewership is what it is. The show isn’t going to gain viewership on the last show of the season. It fact, it’s less likely that anyone is going to tune in who hasn’t seen the show before, because they won’t know what the heck is going on. I think Burn Notice is right where it should be. Hopefully they have a good summer.
