Real Housewives of New Jersey. MOB Wives. Jersey Shore. Three improbably hot programs that have, in recent years, enjoyed a strangle hold on American pop-culture. For whatever reason – an unquenched thirst for anything remotely Sopranos adjacent, a nod to 21st Century voyeurism in general, or an unflagging desire for reality TV with an edge, an accent, with true, authentic character– the viewing public remains riveted to this corner of the world. Wait 'til they get a load of "JOHNNY P."
