MTV has ordered a new season of a popular reality show, Variety reports. New episodes will begin shooting this summer for a sixth season of “Jersey Shore,” the story reports.
There has been no official word from MTV about how Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi’s pregnancy will be worked into the reality program, but it is expected to be a focus of the series. Presumably, Snooki will not be doing the kind of drinking, fighting and partying she has in the past.
“Jersey Shore” finished last season as the top-rated cable series in the 12-34 demo, the story notes, with an average of 7.9 million viewers when DVR viewing is included.
MTV will present "The Pauly D Project," a spinoff of "Jersey Shore," beginning March 29.
