'Jersey Shore' Cast Starting to Fold

1/28/2010 12:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Two of the cast members of "Jersey Shore" have agreed to MTV's offer of $10,000 an episode, but the others are still holding out ... sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ.

Jeresy shore contract negotiations
Ronnie and J-WOWW have accepted MTV's offer. A well-placed MTV source tells TMZ the network is drawing a hard line at the close of business tomorrow -- the rest of the cast members must either accept the offer or MTV replaces them.

Earlier in the week we told you MTV's original deadline was Monday night -- but the network continued negotiations and now they say it's do or die.

Alright, there stuck with two of them from the last season, but don't bring back anymore!At least J-Wow has the big fake boobs. Maybe they can make it a requirement in her contract to lose some weight. And maybe Ronnie will use that bonehead of his and get in some more fights. But DO NOT bring back anymore of them!

The show is popular only so people can make fun of and get a good laugh out of how stupid they are. They had a good run put they are easily replaceable with more of whatever they call themselves.

Drop the show fast, Youwonder why the children of this generation, are the way they are?? MTV is the reason why, this piece of garbage show, Is why kids treat parents the way they do, wake up people, It's all about the Dollar, thats all this world has come to, Imsick to my stomach, Punk ass kids couldnt survive in my neighborhood in Brooklyn, they would have been scared to come out at night.

The Boring Hills cast got $100,000 per episode and did not even get near the amount of viewers the cast of Jersey Shore. Giving them just 5K an episode is only 5 percent of what the Hills cast received. I can see why they are holding out. Sad thing is, MTV probably has a clause in their contract stating they can't move to another network and so forth. I'm sure E! or their sister station VH1 would have put up the price tab.

Once upon a time, MTV used to play music videos. All day, all night. MTV = music television. What an odd concept!

Wow, I can't believe MTV would pay these characters one dime let alone $10,000 per episode. They should be paying their viewers to watch this show. Watching Snooki and the Situation in the hot tub should have come with a warning to have a barf bag handy. There was nothing remotely sexy about that hook up.

Good for you MTV. Stick to your guns and cut them lose if they don't sign. They are getting BAD advice from somewhere. It takes some big kahunas what they are trying to pull. They think they are such "big reality stars" now..what till the paychecks stop rolling all together ...then true reality will smack them right across the head! To the cast: you're making yourself look childish and foolish.
