Come on, everybody, we were so close! So very, very close. With Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi pregnant, engaged, and seemingly retired from the hard-partying lifestyle for which she's famous only for stumbling through, it had seemed 'Jersey Shore' was at its end. After all, even meatballs and gorilla juiceheads have to sleep sometime, don't they?
And with 'Jersey Shore' Season 5 having come to a close, with a Pauly D spin-off on the way and a Snooki / JWoww pilot in the works, it had seemed that the once mammoth phenomenons of GTL and the 'Jersey Shore' lifestyle would slowly, but surely ride off into the sunset. Then, this happened.
Brace yourselves, folks. 'Jersey Shore' has been renewed for Season 6.
