Dollar beers, beer brawls and a wiccan: What we love about MTV’s ‘Floribama Shore’

The results are in: Mondays no longer suck.

MTV’s latest reality show may be a hot mess, but people are loving “Floribama Shore.”

The premiere episode last week scored an impressive .94 among the network’s core demographic (18-34) with 846,000 total viewers  for the series’ launch, the cable channel reports. This marks the network’s highest rated new series premiere in over three years.

Set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that stretches all the way to Alabama, “Floribama Shore” is the story of eight young adults who come to spend the summer in Party Central USA, aka the Gulf Coast, Panama City Beach.

On the second episode of the “Jersey Shore” spinoff, housemates Aimee, Candace, Codi, Gus, Jeremiah, Kirk, Kortni and Nilsa proved that there’s no shortage of drama just amp up the drama by the minute.

What we learned over the course of an hour:

There’s a  new millennial acronym out there: THOT means the “The Ho Over There.”

Kirk is probably the only sane one in the house, and knows how to apologize like a man. But he has a temper as seen in the crazy bar fight that went down with a middle aged drunken woman who deserves a guest spot every week. . Tip: Your battle cry, “I’m from Atlanta!,” won’t work in Miami.

Kortni is able to control her bladder, after all (she was guilty of bedwetting during the first episode). She also is the girl you want on your side when you’re fighting with “those people…dollar draft beer people.”

Aimee probably is really, really envious of Meghan Markle. Because this castmate’s aspiration in life is to be a trophy wife and not really, like, work. Ever. This Southern belle does make a mean taco soup, however.

Kayla Jo is a wiccan, a “religion” based on ancient Witchcraft traditions. OK….we’re a little scared.

Trish is a “Christian sex addict,” who made such an impression that “Lady Bird” star Saoirse Ronan just parodied her on “Saturday Night Live” in a hysterical sketch.

Gus is a lovesick fool, and we respect that.

The next episode airs Monday (10 p.m. ) on MTV.
