MTV is Leaving the Jersey ShoreMTV formally announced they’re saying good-bye to the reality series Jersey Shore. The network says the sixth season, set to premiere on October 4, 2012 at 10pm, will be the show’s final season. But don’t be sad Jersey Shore fans…you’ll have plenty of opportunities to say good-bye to Snooki and the Jersey gang as they’ll be doing lots of promotional appearances heading into the last season of the show.
The network’s planning a “season’s worth of celebratory Jersey Shore farewell programming” beginning on September 6th. Here’s that day’s Jersey Shore lineup thus far:
– A one-hour retrospective special titled “Gym, Tan, Look Back” that includes footage from the final season and cast interviews will air at 6pm.
– The Jersey Shore crew will hit the red carpet at 7pm during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Pre-Show, chatting up their last season.
– An “awards-themed” marathon of Jersey Shore episodes begins at 11am featuring some of the show’s most iconic scenes.
Then on October 4 after the season six premiere and continuing with each new episode, MTV will deliver “bonus programming” at 11pm.
A Look Back:
MTV’s Jersey Shore is the highest rated series in the network’s history. It was the #1 cable series for P12-34 for all five of its seasons and launched spin-offs including The Pauly D Project and Snooki & JWOWW. It also inspired international versions: Geordie Shore in the UK and Gandia Shore in Spain.
