'Jersey Shore'

Cast, MTV Strike Deal

1/29/2010 11:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The entire "Jersey Shore" cast has agreed in principle to come back on board for Season 2 ... sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ.

As we first reported, MTV gave The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D and the rest of the crew a deadline of today at the end of business, or else they'd all be replaced. We know the offer on the table was $10,000 per episode ... we do not know the magic number that ended the stalemate.

We're told lawyers are trying to work out specific language and terms and they're all hoping they can put a bow on it tonight.

UPDATE
: We've learned Vinny accepted MTV's $10,000 per episode offer. We're told one of the terms the lawyers are hammering out is the number of appearances the cast can make outside the show. Cast members -- especially Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation -- want the right to appear at as many as four clubs and other venues a week ... where they've been raking in good money in appearance fees.

It's sad that a bunch of idiotic, uneducated, uncultured morons can get paid this kind of money for going to clubs, making out with strangers, and starting fights. What's even sadder is that people sit at home and watch that garbage in their free time. Thanks MTV for slowly destroying what little culture and brain sense that our youth has.

^ Yeah, MTV should have wiped the slate.
It would have been cheaper, more entertaining, and (with proper casting) probably yield better ratings than another season of an-already-self-entitled cast.

I watched one episode & this is pure trash tv. I wish I saw the episode when the midget was punched in the face.

The only question I have is WHY?! These people are making all this money for what exactly? This show is ridiculous, and the people are retarded.

What a bunch of losers. $10,000 is more than any of them made in a year.

Once again Viacom and MTV will financially benefit by the fact that the majority of their viewers are as ignorant as the people they put on camera. Are these cast members really that stupid or is this just proof that our society will do anything for the almighty dollar. My guess is that it’s probably both! MTV is laughing all the way to the bank while your mind turns to mush.

what a loser    

I LOVE Jersey Shore. MTV is making so much money from it, the kids DESERVE to be paid their fair share. I hope they send them to somewhere new on the shore -- Wildwood? because they'll be recognized now and it will change things. Keep Angelina OFF the next season - I don't want them to waste camera time on her when the others are more than enough. maybe send them to different parts of the country -- or even world? It would be funny to see them acclimate to another culture -- even Malibu, Miami, Rio, Monaco, French Riviera, etc... Snooki and The Situation in the French Riviera (Cannes) would be GREAT!! I wish them only the best and I will be a loyal viewer! LOVE you guys!!!!
