“Jersey Shore” canceled? The latest MTV news about the reality show says Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and other cast are in their last season amid falling ratings. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who spoke openly about his disdain for the show, is undoubtedly giving himself high-fives over the show’s departure from television.
According to a Los Angeles Times report Thursday, the uber-tanned bunch of dames and blokes on the MTV series are fading to black after six seasons of raising hell in Seaside Heights.
The reality television series was an instant hit in 2009 when it debuted. At its peak, over 8 million viewers watched a return of the wise-guy vernacular.
While “Jersey Shore,” canceled after its sixth season, closes a chapter in the MTV playbook, cast members like Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jennifer “JWoww” Farley won’t be leaving reality TV.
“Snooki & JWoww,” the spin-off series from “Jersey Shore,” is in its second season of production. Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino is starring in the 10th season of “Celebrity Big Brother” on a UK network. And Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio began his project “The Pauly D Project” recently. He is hoping to line up big gigs during his jet-setting voyages around the globe.
That leaves Deena Nicole, Ronnie, Sammi and Vinny, all of whom likely have something lined up to continue their role-modeling ways.
While “Jersey Shore” is canceled, expect Season 6 of MTV’s final installment to be filled with drama, emotional roller coasters, a brawl or two, and rivers of tears. It’s going to be some Seaside Heights action until the end baby!
The farewell season premieres October 4. Are you happy or sad Snooki and the cast are getting the ratings-ax? Let me know on my facebook page by clicking here.
