'Jersey Shore'

Producers Looking to Phase Out

The Situation & Snooki

With Snooki pregnant and The Situation getting sober, the people behind "Jersey Shore" are FREAKED the show will lose its sex-crazed alcohol-fueled edge -- so they're looking to phase the two out ... in favor of newer, wilder castmates.

MTV released a statement earlier this week -- following news Sitch was seeking substance abuse treatment -- claiming the network expects the entire cast to return for Season 6 ... but sources close to 495 Productions tell TMZ, the production company is currently looking for new talent.

According to sources, 495 desperately wants to keep things fresh -- and folding in new castmates will help transition the show into a new generation ... while still keeping old fans hooked.

We're told 495 plans to limit Snooki and The Situation's roles on the new season -- giving new cast members more screen time instead.

The show is set to begin filming this summer. 495 had no comment.

they should phase out the entire cast. They made the mistake of keeping the same people and the show ended up getting old fast because its the same thing, different setting with the same people.

If they used different people like the Real World you'd save money by not paying a ton of money to a bunch of talentless drunks.

And The Situation and Snooki are the only 2 people that even generate that show publicity and attention.

So you're gonna phase them out and give people more Ron-Sammi drama, ugly Deena or boring Vinnie?

Can we write out the entire useless group. What value do they possibly give anyone, even the idea of "what not to do with your life" isn't justification for having these individuals on tv. Their life isn't reality it is a joke and MTV actually pays them to behave so badly and try to be role models for our youth, no wonder the world is so screwed up. Get a real job, act respectful and stop trying to make money off being a screwup.

They all can book outside gigs, and tv shows. Im not crying for them. The show was stale and predictable last season. Probably for the best to keep the show going.

I literally cringed at the use of "Talent" in this article. If drinking your face off and making a complete A-hole out of yourself in public is "Talent", then more than half of the U.S population should be followed around with cameras while making a pile of undeserved cash.

Casting Call, MTV productions;

Production team seeks: talentless, dewshbags, with NO pattern of work history, personal responsibility, post high school education, no long term sobriety or developed social skills - Applicants Must be abusers of anabolic steroids, chronic ultra-violet tanning and users of various club drugs...GHB, Ketamine and not adverse to date rape drugs like GHB. No military veterans, or non felons will be considered.

If "phasing The Situation out" means dropping him off of a bridge without a bungie cord, then I'm all in favor.
