(CNN) – Considering that one of its stars isn’t really in a position to live with seven other partying roommates while pretending to work at a T-shirt store – you know, because Snooki’s had a baby and all — it makes sense that MTV has decided to end “Jersey Shore” with season 6.
The series that added “fist-pumping” and “GTL” to our vocabulary — not to mention giving an alternate meaning to “situation” — will kick off the beginning of the end on October 4 at 10 p.m.
Before then, MTV will give fans another opportunity to see the cast with a pre-MTV Video Music Awards special called “Gym, Tan, Look Back.” That program will offer a preview of final season footage starting at 6 p.m. ET on September 6. “Gym, Tan, Look Back” will be followed by interviews with the cast during MTV’s VMAs pre-show at 7 p.m.
If the end of “Jersey Shore” is disappointing news for you, perhaps you’ll take comfort in the fact that the spinoff series, “Snooki and JWoww,” has been picked up for a second season.
