Jersey Shore has returned for its fifth season, and while it seems as though the Seaside Bandwagon has dwindled since the middle of the gang's tour de Italy, I just can't pull my eyes away from the trainwreck. Let's break down the first episode, which started out pretty promising: •••• The gang returns to American soil. Judging from the way they reacted, you can assume that their exit from Italy was a little rougher than portrayed. We heard about all the drama that occurred there via fantastic websites such as TMZ, so I am sure that the Italian people had no problem hurling their bags onto the plane back to the U.S. •••• Everyone was pscyhed to get back to their Seaside abode.

Although recent national news has focused on the latest political events and gun attacks, the Obama administration's new rules forcing reductions in carbon dioxide emissions from power plants is far more important ( "Carbon rules can work," June 2). Carbon dioxide traps sun-heated air at the earth's surface, raising temperatures and sea levels. As 2003's Hurricane Isabel and later Superstorm Sandy showed us, places like historic Annapolis, Fells Point and the entire Eastern Shore of Maryland - not to mention the Jersey Shore and New York City - could be inundated in years to come.

If there's another episode of "Jersey Shore," you can count on one thing being true: Invaluable life lessons will be imparted.  Here's what we learned from America's favorite multi-millionaires on tonight's show, the second episode of the season set in Italy.

As New Jersey Gov.Chris Christie plays the victim in the George Washington Bridge scandal, betrayed as he puts it by underlings in his office, much political crepe is being draped around his broad shoulders. But it doesn't necessarily have to be a shroud over his national ambitions. Surviving advisers say the governor will be pressing on, as recently elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association, with a six-state fund-raising and candidate-boosting tour in the Northeast, South and Rockies, focusing on party-building and his personal appeal as a straight-talker.

OK, so I was assigned to watch and blog about the "Jersey Shore" in Italy season premiere. While I initially believed this was a pointless assignment, I now take back those words. On tonight's episode, no fewer than 10 signs of the apocalypse were revealed.  10) Snooki shared her knowledge of European geography.  9) Snooki's dad volunteered to be a male stripper.  8) Eight of 10 Twitter trending topics in Baltimore were Jersey Shore related.  7) Snooki and Sammi decided to get fake breasts together.  6)

Here we go, everyone: Episode two of the fifth (and probably final) season of "Jersey Shore. " Did we get a hair-pulling, kooka-flashing, Situation-bashing bomb of an episode this week? Well … I'm not going to lie - I dozed off for the first 15 minutes. I woke up to Snooki drunkenly draping herself over Jionni, discussing his sexiness and a future meal of chicken cutlets. I also saw a quote on Twitter that discussed sharing girls and underwear. Can't wait to see the replay so that I can put a face to that quote, although I have a sneaking suspicion that it came out of Mike's mouth.

Who knew the serene beaches in Cape May County, N.J. – The Jersey Cape — are laden with downy white sand that rivals the sugar-sand beaches on exotic tropical islands? You don't learn this stuff from watching Snooki and her gang, who hang out on those taupe-colored dense sand beaches 100 miles north. A gleaming, 30-mile ribbon of powdery-white sand beaches connects the resorts of Ocean City , Sea Isle City, Avalon, Stone Harbor, the Wildwoods, and Cape May. Each town radiates a distinctive vibe, while abounding with superb beaches, fabulous foodie indulgences, boundless outdoor pursuits and exquisite accommodations.

The latest episode of "Jersey Shore" was about men behaving badly. The boys were in full-on meathead mode, driven by poor, drunken decisions and steadfast refusals to back down. It was mainly uncomfortable to watch the women having to react to the boors, their looks of horror and tears telling the story. We enjoy "Jersey Shore" for its mindless escapism. But when Vinny - quickly pulling ahead as the most insufferable person in the house - says, "It's called tag-team, not tag-rob.

Not since Richard Nixon assured an audience of newspaper editors in 1973 that "I am not a crook" has a major political figure so conspicuously defended his character as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has done in declaring, "I am not a bully. " The governor's remark in a mea culpa news conference in Trenton came in the context of the brouhaha over the closing of George Washington Bridge traffic lanes into the town of Fort Lee on the Jersey side. It was ordered by Mr. Christie aides as a vengeful act against the town's Democratic mayor, who had not supported the governor's re-election campaign last year.

Well, 12:01 a.m. came and went (even in Mayan Time, otherwise known as Central Time) and nothing really happened. Although Annapolis was plunged into darkness and bathed in an eerie blue light, BGE assures us it wasn't apocalypse-related. Pessimists are still holding out hope though, guessing maybe it will happen at the end of long day's work right before your Christmas vacation starts. Need more conspiracy theories to keep your Mayan Apocalypse hopes alive? Well, " Jersey Shore" has ended its run. Snooki and company will now fade into obscurity, subsisting off of occasional appearances on "Celebrity Ghost Stories" and "Jersey Shore/Shahs of Sunset Challenge XXXIII.

This episode was full of ups and downs, but was a great one overall. Again, I'm not sure if they've actually been that good, or if I'm just slowly getting nostalgic because "Jersey Shore" is coming to an end. Either way, the second to last episode ever did not disappoint. The Cliff Notes version: We find out Mike was a stripper in college. Paula and Mike fight, makeup and he still leaves with a random. Pauly D finally gets it in and the whole house gets an ear-full. Snooki and Deena hold meatball auditions.

In past summers, Rodney, the fictional Ocean City lifeguard in the resort town's advertising campaign, has ventured to rescue New Yorkers and New Jerseyites from summer boredom. After Hurricane Sandy, Rodney may have less convincing to do. While Sandy affected a large swath of the East Coast, it made landfall on the Jersey shore and caused nearly $37 billion in damage to that state, according to recent estimates. In the beach town of Seaside Heights, a roller coaster knocked into the Atlantic Ocean has become a symbol of the destruction wrought by the storm.

This week, we got a “feel good” type of episode, which is appropriate considering we are quickly approaching the holidays. If I had to name this episode, it would be “Olive Branch” or “We Are Family” (yes, I'm singing it in my head, too). The group heavily unites in this episode and shows that in the end, it is all about family, and they are one family. United they stand, united they fall - down - hard. The episode starts where they left us last week, with Vinny wanting to speak to Jionni in private.

Weather watchers described Hurricane Sandy's path as unusual as it plowed into the New Jersey coast, and satellite images may show just how strange it looked. The view from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's GOES-14 satellite shows the storm churning through the Bahamas and off the Carolinas before it makes a beeline for the Jersey shore. The animation was compiled by the Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. GOES-14 acts as a backup to two other main weather satellites that cover the western and eastern sides of the U.S. but because of problems with GOES-13 in the east, GOES-14 was activated for October.
