'Jersey Shore' reportedly looking to phase out Snooki and Situation
UPI News Service, 03/24/2012
MTV is looking to phase out "Jersey Shore" cast mates Snooki and The Situation in favor of new talent, TMZ said Sunday.
With Snooki pregnant and The Situation seeking substance-abuse treatment, the network could be worried it will lose its sex-crazed, alcohol-fueled edge, the entertainment Web site said Saturday.
MTV released a statement earlier this week saying it plans to return the entire cast for Season 6, but a source close to 495 Productions told TMZ they are looking for fresh faces.
The production company plans to focus more on new cast members but still keep the familiar faces around to keep fans hooked, the source said.
Season 6 of "Jersey Shore" begins production this summer.
