Let's all raise, clink, tap, lick, shoot, and bite a proper tequila shot toast in honor of Jersey Shore's first birthday. The first season of Jersey Shore premiered on MTV a year ago, today, December 3rd, 2009. In one short year, the cast has cranked out three seasons of Shore, aired two, thrown punches, gotten punched, gotten arrested, gotten sued, gotten trademarked, and GTLed their way into our hearts. They've released songs, written books, scored multi-million dollar endorsement deals, inspired a South Park spoof, and, after just one year of being in the public eye, they've been named among Barbara Walters' Most Fascinating People Of 2010. Just to give you some perspective, here, when the list of the Most Fascinating People of 2009 dropped, Jersey Shore hadn't even premiered, yet. And it took Sandra Bullock how long to make the cut? (Ooh, cheap shot, we know. Love you, Sandy!)
