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?

The days of GTL, fist pumping and beating up the beat are nearing their end on MTV as Jersey Shore's upcoming sixth season will officially be the last.

Since its December 2009 debut, the show has been a huge hit and its cast members have become bona fide celebrities, but ratings have dipped of late.

Also, with Snooki giving birth and The Situation sober following a trip to rehab, the gang may be - dare we say it with a straight face - growing up.

Jersey Shore Season 5 Cast

The network's plan is to launch a marketing storm touting Jersey Shore's final season as the guidos' final blowout before riding off into the sunset.

MTV will air a Jersey Shore marathon, as well as a one-hour retrospective special titled "Gym, Tan, Look Back" on September 6 before the VMAs.

The cast will also be part of the VMA's preshow to talk about the final season, which should certainly be an interesting one due to Snooki's pregnancy.

Rest assured, cameras were there to capture the birth of Lorenzo Dominic LaValle last week. Break out the Ron-Ron juice for that episode, people.

Jersey Shore Season 6 premieres Thursday, October 4.

Will you watch Jersey Shore's last season?

Lorenzo Dominic LaValle's here and the Jersey Shore gang is dishing out the love to new mom Snooki, fiance Jionni LaValle and their bundle of love.

News of Snooki giving birth to the Garden State's youngest guido at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J., Sunday was welcomed joyously.

Here's what her co-stars had to say on Twitter:

Snooki's BFF JWoww: "So proud of @snooki and @JLaValle! Lorenzo is the cutest baby I ever seen. Love him already."

Pauly D: "I Love It This Time A Yearrr When Baby Lorenzo's Here !!!!! Congrats @snooki And @JLaValle !!! #BabyBlowout"

Sammi Giancola: "Congrats @snooki !!!!! So happy for you."

Ronnie Magro: "Congratulations to @snooki !!! Luv ya baby sis! Remember breathe and push!!"

Vinny Guadagnino: "I'm finally an uncle!!! Congrats @snooki and @JLaValle! Can't wait to meet #babylorenzo!"

The Situation: "Congrats to Nicole and jionni on their healthy baby boy! All the best! @snooki"

Jersey Shore returns to MTV October 4 for its sixth season. With pregnant Snooki in the house, it'll certainly be different than years past.

Will Snooki be a good mom?

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is officially a mom.

The Jersey Shore star and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, welcomed their baby boy - 6-pound, 5-ounce Lorenzo Dominic LaValle - into the world this morning.

"The world just got another Guido!!!" a Polizzi rep told MTV, which confirmed the baby's arrival moments ago. "Nicole, Jionni & Enzo are doing great!"

Enzo was born at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, N.J. around 3 a.m. Sunday, according to MTV, which congratulated Snooki and Jionni LaValle.

Snooki, Jionni LaValle Engaged!

"We couldn't be happier for Nicole and Jionni on the healthy delivery of their baby boy!" the network said in a statement. "We are looking forward to Lorenzo's first trip to the Jersey Shore and can't wait to see his first animal print onesie."

Jersey Shore will return for a sixth season this fall, and her spinoff Snooki & JWoww has also been picked up for a new season, though it's unclear the extent to which Enzo will appear on either, or whether he has an agent yet.

So there you go. Snooki is a mom. In charge of keeping a small human alive.

The Mayans predicted the world will end 12/21/12 ... turns out they missed by 118 days, not too bad considering the scope of human civilization.

In all seriousness, congratulations to Snooki and Jionni. Welcome Enzo!

UPDATE: A couple of Tweets from Snooki. Sounds like she's on Cloud 9:

After being denied by several New Jersey towns, Snooki & JWoww have found a new place to live, and the residents of their new town aren't pleased.

495 Productions, the producers of Jersey Shore as well as Snooki & JWoww, had trouble finding a location to film Season 2 of the duo's reality show.

The small town of Manchester stepped up to the plate, though ... much to the chagrin of the Manchester natives who have to live next to them.

Some of their close neighbors say they had no idea Snooki and JWoww were rolling into the small Garden State town 80 miles south of N.Y. City.

When they called the town to complain, they were told the mayor already signed off, so too bad ... for him, the next time he runs for reelection.

Concerned residents were told 495 would go door-to-door to "address the situation," but several neighbors tell us that hasn't actually happened.

What would they say anyway? Meanwhile, with pregnant Snooki ready to pop any second, crew members have been seen setting up equipment.

Say a prayer for Manchester.

Snooki and JWoww will not be welcome in Toms River or Point Pleasant, New Jersey, during the second season of their Jersey Shore spinoff show.

The Point Pleasant Beach Council unanimously voted against a request to tape the Snooki & JWoww there; Toms River negged a similar request.

Guess they gotta need to keep the quota of overly tanned girls with giant fake boobs saying inane things to a minimum ... or at least limit the traffic.

Season 1 was filmed in Jersey City, N.J., after Hoboken negged them. Jersey Shore itself is filmed in Seaside Heights, further down the Atlantic coast.

Although it doesn't have a location yet, Season 2 of Snooki & JWoww will be an entertaining ride to say the least, given all that should transpire.

"It would probably be up to my labor and [my baby] being born," Snooki told E! News, though she adds that things won't be too intimate.

Thank goodness.

"[Fiancé Jionni Lavelle] wants [the birth] to be private and I totally respect him for that," she said. "But I'm going to record it for myself."

"I want to remember that moment. And I want to show Lorenzo when he's like 16 in front of all his friends and really embarrass him."

At this rate, let's just hope the hot mess can find a hospital that will allow her in the door. Tip: Check in as Nicole Polizzi, not Snooki.

Jersey Shore Season 6 will kick off Thursday, October 4, with a second season of popular spinoff Snooki and JWoww also reportedly picked up by MTV.

It's hard to believe this will be the sixth season of debauchery from the ensemble that first graced our TV screens in early 2010. Brings a tear to your eye.

So much has changed since the early days, most notably Jionni LaValle getting Snooki pregnant and The Situation getting sober following a trip to rehab.

What can we expect in Jersey Shore Season 6?

Jersey Shore Cast: Season 4

Snooki, as we know, is expecting her first child and reportedly living in her own pad next door to the familiar cesspool, while Mike no longer drinks.

Right there, they've reduced the number of peeps boozing by a quarter and the overall drama in the house by even more. Will it still be awesome TV?

With most of the cast in relationships, there may also be less hooking up. On the flip side, JWoww and Roger may start fights if they don't get smush room dibs.

One crazy episode we will get to see is Deena Cortese getting arrested in the middle of the day for her drunken disorderliness. Good times.

Pauly and Vinny will no doubt take their burgeoning platonic man-love to new heights, new catchphrases will be created, and the Shore Store will be staffed by rich slackers.

What do you think? Will you watch Jersey Shore Season 6?

 

UPDATE, 8/30: MTV has canceled Jersey Shore, announcing that the upcoming season is the end. The network is planning a huge marketing push for Season 6.

Jersey Shore's Deena Nicole Cortese won't face criminal charges for disorderly conduct following her arrest for acting like a drunk jackass in the middle of the day last month, however the hot mess will be forced to pay a fine.

For failing to use the sidewalk.

Deena was briefly jailed in Seaside Heights, N.J., for dancing in the streets and "slapping cars" ... seriously. Her parents sprung her later that day.

A disorderly conduct charge was dropped today in court, but Deena must pay a fine after pleading guilty to what is known as a "Title 39" instead.

That would be failure to use the sidewalk and instead walking in the middle of the street, which is technically a crime but hardly ever enforced.

She apologized for "causing any trouble," paid $139 and was let go, free to help Snooki push beer in a stroller until her guidette heart's content.

Snooki & JWoww, a half-hour Jersey Shore spinoff, premiered on MTV last night.

It was ... exactly what you think it was. Snooki and JWoww just livin' life!

Of course, we already knew the main storyline coming in, given that the gals are bona fide celebrity gossip staples at this point - Snook's preggers.

Still, not everything about the show, in which the Shore stars move into a Jersey City, N.J., apartment, was telegraphed. Some of it was even funny.

Let's break it down, THG +/- style!

Snooki and JWoww Photo

JWoww, on prepping to put her partying ways behind her and settle down: "I'm 'bout to hit 30 in a coupla years, and that's it." Girl, you're 26. Minus 9.

The scene in which Snooki tells Jenni she's pregnant and engaged was evidently not staged, as JWoww is SURE Nicole is kidding and it's a joke. Plus 50.

"Instead of life throwing me a curveball, it threw me a spermball ... obviously." - Snooki. Clearly written for her by MTV, but still, nice one! Plus 8.

"Jionni proposed and I'm engaged," Nicole Polizzi insists. "I swear!" "No, you're not," Jenni Farley says. "You would've told me!!" She just did! Minus 1.

"Like, who lives in a firehouse?" says Snooki, re: their new digs. Firemen, or reality stars basically. Either way, looks like a pretty cool place, so Plus 5.

JWoww isn't sad about Snooki about being pregnant, just about being late for their apartment hunting and leaving her sitting on a stoop alone. Minus 5.

Plus 20 for the guy ogling the pair out of a car window.

How ecstatic will the denizens of Seaside Heights, N.J., be when MTV closes the book on Jersey Shore? It's been a three-year-old melee in that town.

The latest: Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is on the receiving end of a private citizen's complaint, brought by a man who claims Ron roughed him up in a bar.

Not sure about you, but our jaws are on the floor.

Ron Ortiz-Magro

Justin Viterito accused the 26-year-old Ortiz-Magro of simple assault that resulted from a brawl at the Seaside nightclub Bamboo Bar on June 9.

According to Viterito, a friend of his "was shoved by a cast member from the show" and as he moved to help, Viterito was "struck" by the star.

The complaint also named as defendants MTV and parent company Viacom in court papers. He alleges Ron-Ron belted him above the left eye.

Neither man's attorney was available for comment, nor was the cable network. But Ortiz-Magro must appear at a court hearing set for July 3.

The melee affected Ronnie's co-star Jenni "JWoww" Farley, who reportedly ended up sustaining a foot injury and was on crutches last week.

Also this month, Deena Cortese was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge and someone leaked these pre-pregnancy pics of Snooki nude.
