LOS ANGELES -- After six seasons, MTV has decided we've had enough gym, tan and laundry. Jersey Shore is coming to an end.
The reality series that gave us such wholesome role models as Snooki, The Situation, and JWoww and followed them from their summer share in Seaside Heights, N.J., all the way to Italy and back, will come to a close at the end of the upcoming sixth season, set to debut on Oct. 4.
MTV plans to air a retrospective special, Gym, Tan, Look Back as well as provide live interviews with the cast before the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday. Expect a lot of running mascara.
