'Jersey Shore's' record-setting premiere

Three seasons in, and we’re definitely still watching “Jersey Shore.”

Last night’s premiere of the MTV reality show drew 8.45 million viewers, making the start of season three MTV's most-watched series telecast ever.

The premiere also delivered more young viewers – ages 12 to 34 – than any other broadcast or cable show this season, excluding sports programming.

And compared to season two’s debut – which also set a record when it premiered last July with 5.3 million watching - the ratings for the third season’s opener were up by 63 percent in the 12-34 demo.

As did, apparently, the photos from Shania Twain's wedding. Seriously - on every.single.cover.

Until next week, when we'll undoubtedly learn why Sandra and Ryan would never work as a couple...
