In Season 6 of Jersey Shore, Snooki is pregnant. On last night’s two-hour premiere, we watched Nicole Polizzi waddle out to Seaside in a valiant attempt to enjoy the shore — and, more to the point, earn a six-figure-per-episode salary — without alcohol. Although we’ve never felt particularly great about ourselves after sitting through an entire episode of the show, this newest development (which we couldn’t watch for long at all) feels particularly depressing. So we’re glad MTV has decided that this will be the last season of Jersey Shore, and we’re hoping a few other veteran reality shows that have run out of ideas (or were just always terrible) will consider doing the same. After the jump, we look at ten that have exceeded their expiration date and are starting to stink.
When one of the cast members on a show about what happens when seven people go the shore and spend every day blind drunk gets pregnant, it’s not funny anymore. It’s just sad. Let’s all look away, shall we?
