Although the Jersey Shore cast may come across a grenade or two in Florence, the show's Season 4 premiere was anything but a bomb. In fact, during the August 4th episode, America's favorite ultra-tan housemates pulled in an astonishing 8.8 million viewers!

The massive number comes as no surprise, beings that the Season 4 trailer promises a slew of typical antics (with an Italian spin) for the fist-pumping octet, like Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi crashing into a cop car and a brawl between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

In addition to being the most-viewed MTV episode ever, it also broke the record for having the biggest audience for an MTV season premiere (Season 3's Jan. 6, 2011 premiere got 8.45 million viewers) and was the third most-watched series telecast of all time for the network.
