"We're slaves to our different audiences, for MTV that's millennials, who are vastly different than Generation X. They're definitely less cynical -- they're more civic minded. Millennials are really about authentic reality and family. (That's why MTV) played up the camaraderie and family elements in Jersey Shore to appeal to them."
-- MTV Networks President Van Toffler
So I'm too cynical to appreciate the authenticity, sense of family, and general civic-mindedness of Jersey Shore.
Man, this quote is great on so many different levels.
