With an aggressive alligator, a plate of frog legs, some final night fireworks, and one last holler of “the cabs are here!” the Jersey Shore bid viewers farewell Thursday night.

For a couple of months, anyway.

Season 3 of MTV’s highly successful series will premiere on Jan. 6, with a new roommate, Deena Nicole Cortese, joining the cast. The gang will also return to their original digs in Seaside Heights, N.J.

While Jersey Shore has produced huge ratings for the network, many fans find the show isn’t what it used to be. Will the third time still be a charm for the show?
