MTV Cancels Jersey Shore, Season 6 Show's Last

Get More: Cancellations, News

Jersey Shore CancelledGym. Tan. Look for a job.

MTV has announced that Jersey Shore‘s upcoming sixth season (debuting Oct. 4) will be its last.

The network will air an hour-long retrospective, followed by an interview with the cast, as a lead-in to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, Sept. 6.

Prior to the look back, which begins at 6 pm and features a sneak peek at the upcoming season, MTV will show a marathon of noteworthy episodes.

If you just can’t handle this Situation, slap on a fresh coat of Chapstick and take a deep breath. The series was the highest-rated in the network’s history, and although it lost some vodka-fueled steam in the last few outings, its Season 5 averaged 8 million viewers. Bottom line: MTV will likely fist pump out some more spin-offs (a la Snooki & JWOWW and The Pauly D Project) in the future.

  • oh thank God. Finally. thank you america for making 6 seasons of this crap when they are other way better shows which deserved to stay on air but couldnt. thank you to those who contributed to the ratings that helped it last for so long. i’m sure that the dead brain cells from watching this show can now rest in peace.

    • It’s MTV. They’re not known for quality programming. The only good thing about MTV is Awkward and Teen Wolf. Both are awesome shows! Other than that, I never turn on this channel.

      • i agree! i love awkward and teen wolf. which shows that mtv has the potential to back good shows instead of this nonsense.. too bad there’s still the spinoffs that exists.

  • The Situation is currently in the Celebrity Big Brother house in the UK. He’s been in there for 2 weeks and will probably be out of there by Wednesday. It would be fun if the host sprung this news on him on live TV when he’s evicted. He could possibly make it to the end, though, he’s proving to be quite popular.

    Comment by TMW – August 30, 2012 09:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • they can keep him & all the rest of them can go too
      UK Shore
      though on second that might start a new war
      ooh the government should hire them instead of sending in troops or bombs we just send them
      people will surrender in a week

  • Yeah, good riddance and all… but only after SIX seasons. And no less than EIGHT MILLION people watching. Nothing to celebrate here.

  • Thank goodness. Now cancel Teen Mom, Teen Dad, Who Are All These People I Just Slept With?, Toddler Moms, Everybody’s On Crack, No Fatties, and whatever terrible shows are left and MTV can finally redeem themselves.

  • Im surprised they didnt try to reboot it by casting a new group of younger Guidos and try Jersey Shore 2 or Jersey Shore – The Next Generation. Or maybe find another beach resort on the East or West Coast and find some similar interesting people…or even go to Fire Island or s something and find a group of 4 gays and 3 straights or something

    Never-mind – wasn’t thinking.

  • Thank the stars. I know nobody was forcing me to watch it, and I never did, but it made me really sad there were so many people in our society addicted to that show. It made me lose faith in humanity and I felt like we were doomed intellectually. Now if we can get that Honey boo boo crap off the air along with Toddlers and Tiaras, I might actually think there’s hope for our culture. Exploiting real-life people on television for their addictions, mental illness, stupidity, or the fact that they are complete and total sex and tanning addicts is really uncool. I wish TV executives would stop putting shows on the air like that, and I wish people would stop supporting those shows by watching them.
    .
    I believe people watch shows like these because it makes them feel better about themselves that they’re not as bad as the people they see on TV, but you don’t have to go to reality shows to do that, ya know. There are many scripted shows on television about fictional horrible characters that you can watch to make you feel better about yourself. Just turn on any episode of Girls, Breaking Bad, or Boss. Then you can feel good and say, “Hey, I’m not that bad!” and no real-life person gets exploited in the process.
