"The Situation" Makes Amends on Jersey Shore 

Mike Sorrentino did an easily-identifiable Ninth Step on last night's episode.

To varying degrees of disappointment and relief, the final season of Jersey Shore premiered on MTV last night. Things are different this year—Snooki is renting her own house with her fiance and unborn child and Deena is in a relationship, which means viewers can expect fewer blurry crotch shots from Team Meatball. But the biggest change appears to be in Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino: after spending 40 days in a Utah rehab, The Sitch returned to the house eager to prove himself a changed man. And halfway through last night's episode, he sat them all down to make a Ninth Step amends for his previous behavior. Not that he quite broke his 12-step anonymity, but his apology and discussion of his recovery was easily identifiable as an amends. It's natural enough to wonder if Sorrentino really is a changed man, though. He still makes a show out of objectifying women. And he may make it through the on-screen season sober, but has reportedly fallen off the wagon since filming ended. What are meetings like at the Jersey Shore? Instead of coffee and donuts, do participants get Red Bull and glow sticks?
