MTV Cracks Down on 'Jersey Shore' Deserters

7/12/2011 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MTV has instituted a zero tolerance policy for  "Jersey Shore" runaways -- after nearly losing both The Situation AND Vinny -- threatening to fire any cast member who even thinks of going AWOL.

Sources connected with production tell TMZ, the network is serious this time: if another cast member tries to walk off the show ... that person will be fired, and the remainder of his or her contract will be terminated. No exceptions.

We're told it's all a power play. With two cast members nearly jumping ship in the same week, MTV wants to reassert some authority ... and show the cast who's boss once and for all.

But it might already be too late.

What other job could any of them ever do except a politician? (Most likely Republican)

Please don't leave Jersey Shore cast. My life will be so empty. Even though I've never watched one minute of this crap, I will be devastated and not sure I can survive the heartbreak. Personaly I wish MTV would fire all of them and go back to being MTV...MUSIC TELEVISION... and not these ridiculous, scripted 'reality' shows.

Another thing I noticed was that alot of the tourists in Seaside were from different countries. Saw alot of Germans and Russians.
I think the show has real international appeal. T

there were also kids at the bar who kept shouting that they loved Snooki.

IDK... people seem to really like the show.

Maybe the next Jersey Shore season could be in an ex-Soviet gulag.

Then how can we get them all to walk out at one time so the show will be canceled and they will ALL go away.

Ronnie & Pauly D are the hottest of all the males.
Michael looks like he's in his 50's.
Kind of reminds me of that grandpa that tries to act all cool and hip for his grandkids LMFAO.

I wonder how much TMZ is getting paid to promote the jersey shore. That "reality" show is not real, is all staged just li.ke all MTV shows. Stop posting about these people already.

Snooki doesn't even like Obama because of the whole "tan tax"

Hey MTV, you created those monsters- so own it.

If they had just recast the show after the first season, they would have never run into this problem. Now they have a bunch of over paid and out of control idiots on their hands.

Were you also told that by releasing statements like this (true or not) is a great way for MTV to revive interest in a show that has grown stale?
