It was just eight months ago that "Jersey Shore" first ran on MTV, but has fast become a mega-hit for the network. When the show premiered their second season a few weeks ago, they pulled in more than 5 million viewers.

Snooki even opened up about her now-famous night she spent in jail, saying it wasn't a stunt.
