Jersey Shore is nearing its final fist pump. After three years of hook-ups, fights and giant plates of pasta, MTV announced today that the cast members will be officially moving out of the Shore house following the upcoming sixth season.

Once upon a time, the show was a ratings juggernaut. It set records, dominated water cooler conversation and quickly became pop culture currency. The Situation and Snooki got famous almost overnight and many of the other cast members earned millions of dollars in endorsements and appearance fees. Over the past couple of seasons, however, the ratings have slowly started to dip. Gone are the days when the show regularly brought in seven to eight million viewers, replaced by episodes struggling to get five million.

In the grand scheme of things, five million people is still a huge score for a cable show, but with salaries bloating, a downward trend and some of the cast members starting to grow up (The Situation going to rehab, Snooki having a baby), it’s understandable the network would want to get out now. The question is whether their decision was the right one.

Jersey Shore could have easily gone another two or three seasons at minimum. Should it have? Did MTV make the right call by pulling the plug, or should it have let Pauly D and company hang on for a little longer? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
