“Jerks With Cameras.” That’s it. That’s the title.

The Onion AV Club keeps it real.

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.

I don’t often have to look up a word, but I am not ashamed to admit that I had to go to the dictionary for “maquillage.”  Well played, Onion AV Club.  Well played.
