Following several decades of couching its reality TV programming behind titles intended to lend them a patina of narrative focus—or, at the very least, geographical location—MTV has finally just picked up a show called Jerks With Cameras, because that’s where we’re at now, let’s just admit it. As its self-loathing name suggests, Jerks With Cameras hails from Jersey Shore executive producer SallyAnn Salsano, who obviously similarly figures there is no longer any reason to hide—that a person’s soul, having already been scraped bare, can no longer conceal its warts beneath so much maquillage and fakery. Cry havoc, and let slip the jerks with cameras!
Also, it’s a prank show where a bunch of “comedian” jerks are given cameras, then asked to go out and be jerks to people on camera. Should it be a proven success, and only affirm MTV’s deepest suspicions about itself, look for future series such as A Bunch Of Entitled Little Shits We’re Enabling, O Lord What Has Become Of Us?, and Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
