TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - The bronze tans, the tantrums, the six-packs: Canadians can't get enough of "Jersey Shore." MTV's latest hit series is closing in on "The Hills" as its best-ever performing reality show on Canadian TV.

Last Thursday night's episode from the trashy paradise of Seaside Heights, New Jersey, drew 486,000 voyeuristic viewers north of the border, according to BBM Canada data. It ranks as the second-largest audience for a single episode in MTV's history, behind the season-six finale of "The Hills," which drew 605,000 total viewers last July 13.

"Jersey Shore" has also provided the top-rated video for the CTV online network over the last month, and this season has drawn nearly seven million video views on mtv.ca.
