Jersey Shore Cancelled

The party's over for the "Jersey Shore" crew: MTV has announced it's ending the fist-pumping reality hit after next season.

Debuting in 2009 (it feels like much longer ago, doesn't it?), "Shore" became a genuine cultural phenomenon with its portrait of eight young guidos and guidettes drinking and fighting their way through a summer on the Jersey shore. Cast members like Snooki and The Situation became household names, catchphrases were repeated ad nauseum ("Cabs are here!"), and MTV enjoyed the biggest ratings in network history.

But as the seasons wore on, the charm of the "Shore" crew wore off. Sudden fame and huge salary demands have transformed the cast from likable newcomers to bored millionaires. (They're scheduled to pull in as much as $150,000 per episode next season.) Ratings have dipped accordingly -- last season's premiere pulled in a million fewer viewers than the previous year -- and inevitable life changes like Snooki's surprise pregnancy and engagement led many to wonder if the gang could keep up their hard-partying ways much longer. (Turns out they couldn't.)

MTV doesn't have much of a Plan B, either: "Shore" spinoffs "The Pauly D Project" and "Snooki & JWoww" have underwhelmed so far (although "Snooki" has been renewed for Season 2), so it looks like this gravy train will be coming to a full stop pretty quickly. Unless... "Jersey Shore: The Next Generation," anyone?

Well, can't say I'm surprised. It was extremely popular when it first debuted and the next couple of seasons after, but the show took a nosedive after season 3.

It's about time. Shit like that is encouraging stupidity and casual sex among younger generations.

Good. One less trashy show on TV. I'm sure it will be replaced by another.

The only Jersey Shore guy I cared about was Robbie E. And he wasn't even in Jersey Shore.

They will just find 10 or so new "likable" morons and that's it.

Thank god. Should of been cancelled long ago. Now TNA and WWE need to get rid of those rip off gimmicks.

Re: Jersey Shore Cancelled
I still don't understand why people watch shows like this. Why watch someone else going to parties and having fun when you can do the same thing in YOUR life? :confused:

Re: Jersey Shore Cancelled
People enjoy watching OTHER people be moronic, hook up, argue, make drunken fools of themselves, on television.

Real World, Jerry Springer, Maury, Jackass, Fear Factor, etc. The proof's in the longevity & ratings.
