At Jersey Shore, Thumbs Down for 'Jersey Shore'

Tuesday, 22 Dec 2009 06:32 AM


On MTV's reality television show "Jersey Shore," the Beachcomber Bar in Seaside Heights is a place where the clothes are skimpy and punches can fly.

But there's another reality in the New Jersey resort town, which is both a setting and a state of mind on the show about eight tanned twenty-somethings and the havoc they create while living together in a posh home.

People who live in the town year-round say this isn't the same place as the one on the show, filmed in the summer when the population is swelled with families at the beach by day and a sometimes wild club scene by night.

Many locals say the show smears the community. Italian-Americans have claimed it gives them a bad name.

MTV says it never intended to offend.
