The controversial reality series to end after six seasons.
August 30, 2012
Word is out that after six seasons, love-it-or-hate-it reality series Jersey Shore will come to an end. MTV has pulled the plug on the once wildy popular show now that ratings are in decline and the cast is slowly going their own ways.
Since premiering in 2009, cameras have followed the antics of cast members Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D, JWoww and others, as they partied, roughhoused and fornicated their way through locations such as Miami, Italy, and of course, New Jersey. The show became a cultural phenomenon, bringing MTV its highest ratings ever and making many of its stars household names.
The sixth and final season of Jersey Shore will premiere on October 4, 2012.
PS: I don't like watching the news.
Anyway a couple months or so ago (being sick & on bed rest) I couldn't find anything on TV and somehow ended up watching a "Jersey Shore Marathon". I watched (I guess it was all 5 seasons). It wasn't the worst show I've ever seen, but it was rather nauseating hearing Snookie's constant whine.
Jersey Shore was somewhat amusing. At times kind of like a bad accident...you know you should look away but for some reason you don't.
But all in all (again) it wasn't the worst show ever...apparently many liked it or it wouldn't have gotten the ratings it got in the 1st place.
After reading all these comments RE: Jersey Shore, you're free to express your opinion, but really?... You must have cable, satellite, whatever if you're watching it, so out of what? over a 100 channels available to you?, you couldn't find ANYTHING else to watch during the Jersey Shore hour?. Honestly?
There are many shows out there that some people dislike, but obviously many more enjoy them rather than dislike them (enough to keep them on the air) anyway.
Myself when I turn on the TV and something I don't like is on, I simply "change the channel".
So for those that complain about the show and express their distaste fot JS, that's fine, you're entitled to your opinion, but you really don't have the right to say cancel a show just because YOU dislike it.
There are those that love the show (not me personally) but I'm not going to complain about it or demand JS or any other show be cancelled because I can't stand it, I'll simply, change the channel and let those that like it, and want to watch it "enjoy the show".
