Jersey Shore is going out on a high note, according to MTV, which is speaking out about its rationale behind canceling the hit show after six seasons.
Executive VP of Programming Chris Linn says the cost of the cast was not factor, but "we always said we’d do the show as long as it made sense."
Long story short, that's no longer really the case.
"We noticed what was going on in their lives, with [Snooki having her baby], the relationships, etc. it felt like the right time to bring it to a close."
"The show still dominates, it’s the No. 1 show in our core demo, and it’s still incredibly successful. It’s really just about their lives evolving and changing in a way that moves everyone away from the original conceit of the show."
"We made what we think is the right, tough choice to end the show on top."
With Jersey Shore canceled after the coming season (debuting October 4), what kinds of things can we expect from the gang's farewell tour?
