The show enters its sixth season in October and will not continue after that. The Star-Ledger has a few interesting theories as to why the show was cancelled, and columnist Mark Di Ionno says the show should be applauded as a cautionary tale.
But most are simply applauding the show’s demise, especially the real residents of the Jersey Shore.
“We were on a cruise and as soon as we said we were from the Jersey Shore, everyone was like: ‘Do you know Snooki?'” one resident told nj.com. “We constantly had to explain to people that that is not the real Jersey Shore, and that the shore is actually a very beautiful place. It is terrific that the show is finally going away.”
But the gang is not going to disappear entirely. Snooki and JWoww–and Snooki’s newborn son, Lorenzo–will be starring in the second season of their MTV spinoff show, and Pauly D is working on a new album. Thanks to his reality star fame, the pouffy-haired celeb is apparently one of the highest paid DJs in the country.
And what a country it is.
