Wow, they nearly lost me with the idea of recruiting Al Qaeda to take out the Jersey faction. But Randy's outburst at the end of the episode completely saved it.
More intriguing is that we've overhauled a couple of major characters here by making Sheila and Kyle Jersey-born. Making Kyle a Jersey Boy actually would explain a lot of his angry outbursts over the years. Don't think this is the last we've seen of "Kylie-B".
Overall, it was an "eh" kind of episode. I liked this episode a lot better the first time when it was "South Park vs. The Homeless".

We're flying a giant orange "CONAN" blimp over the baseball playoffs. Finally, subtlety in advertising. @ConanOBrien
So, the entire Jersey Shore "phenomenon" was just an elaborate ruse by the US government to coax Bin Laden out of hiding in order to take him out ... I knew it!
"Snooki wants smoosh smoosh!" now replaces "Mee-sa name Joon Joon!" as my favorite South Park-ism.
"All RAW is these days is a cheap version of Saturday Night Live, so if you wanna tune in to watch the amazing star power of Al Sharpton and Nancy O'Dell, go ahead! Who's gonna host next week, Big Bird? Wow, that's must-see TV!" - John Morrison (10/16/09 Smackdown!)
The shrimp joke was going a long way for a punchline that was...eh. The self-referential jokes about the cutaways was probably the best part of the episode. I thought the plot had promise, but they didn't really follow through.
