'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.

Snooki should have told the bf to put in her but instead... another piece of trash bringing a kid into the world..

Those two clowns should off be gone from that show long time ago... Just looking on Snooki makes me want to throw up.. The cast is better without two of those... Enough said.....

Get rid of Ronnie too. Biggest baby on tv. And he can't handle his booze either. Crying and puking is what he does best. And he dances like an idiot.

Take the remaining cast members and have them fight till the death! Perfect ending.

I'm more interested in the show that follows the two through sobriety and attempting to live a normal 9-5 existence. It's a tough world out there.

Blah    

They should just get a whole new cast. It was a fun show when they were in their 20's but now that they are in their 30's it just seems kind of pathetic that they are still acting the way they do with the partying and the drinking. They are all trying to cling to their youth and they aren't young anymore.I'm in my late 20's and I couldn't even imagine behaving like that anymore.

It's very sad that MTV continues to promote substance abuse and sexual promiscuity as a way of life.

I liked the show in the beginning because it was "different".....but this show just gets more and more disgusting and vile each season. All of the cast are boring now and now they just all seem to "ham" it up for the cameras....all tripping over themselves to get camera time. Nobody cares about any of you....so get over yourselves...and get a real job.....and JWOW needs to be stop messing with her face. She was so naturally pretty before she did whatever she did to her face. Her face looks all rubbery and tight and distorted. Such a shame. Her dermatologist and/or plastic surgeon should be banned from the AMA and have their licenses revoked.

Well Mike is "brutta faccia" anyway, so no big loss there, but no Snooki?? Me & my friends think she would be a blast to hang out with at a club! She's special, can't imagine the show without her.

And this is EXACTLY why I blocked MTV from my line up when I had cable tv. When MTV first started they were awesome. They actually played VIDEOS. They had the Headbanger's Ball and a lot of other cool VJ's. I even watched the Real World for a long time but stopped when they phased out playing actual music.This is sad and pathetic that MTV lowered themselves to this, a frigging joke.
Yet they have the MTV Video Music Awards, why??????

What about Sammi Sweetheart? How can they keep her on the show? She has zero personality and adds nothing to the show. Give her and her midget boyfriend Ron their walking papers too, oh heck, cancel the whole stupid show and make these untalented losers go out and get real jobs. They have been paid enough to get drunk every night.
