Jersey Shore centers on the broad ethnic stereotypes... Instead of looking at Jersey Shore as a chance to transform these over-simplified characterizations into a positive celebration of their ethnicity, they use them to excuse inappropriate behavior.

The characters of Jersey Shore were more fully realized, but also more of a punchline than the Laguna kids were.
