The premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation was Viacom-owned youth net MTV’s highest-rated new show in six years.

According to an MTV release, the two-hour episode “also broke cable records for being the most watched unscripted premiere since 2012.” At an average of 2.5 million total viewers over the two hours, it more than doubled the rating of the original Jersey Shore debut in 2009.

Produced by SallyAnn Salsano’s 495 Productions, the two-hour global premiere was a first for MTV.

The ‘Shore’ franchise is an MTV global brand that includes MTV’s Floribama Shore currently shooting its second season, Geordie Shore in the UK, Gandia Shore in Spain, Warsaw Shore in Poland, Acapulco Shore in Mexico and Super Shore.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation features original Jersey Shore housemates Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino who reunite in Miami for vacation.
