Everyone from politicians to Italian-American organizations to my suite mates rejoice in happiness that the disaster called Jersey Shore is finally coming to an end. However, this is a sad event for MTV.

The sixth and final season of the Jersey Shore starts on Oct. 4.

After all, they may be forced to play music on their music television station instead of showing self-pronounced guidos spend extravagant amounts of money on hotels, bling and overall swag. No matter how you are feeling about the fantastic and much-needed ending, let us reflect on the history of this terrorizing show.

Jersey Shore first premiered in December 2009 as an outlet for Americans to chuckle at eight housemates living on a “reality” show and causing shenanigans. By the fourth season, the show had gained 8.8 million viewers, more than any other show on MTV has ever had.

By season five, Jersey Shore returned to season one ratings as the average viewers had a revelation: they could be so much better than these characters instead of watching them terrorize other countries. Before ratings dropped any lower and costs increased, the show had to be stopped.

At first glance, things seem to be looking up as these beasts make some changes to their lives. “The Situation” is living with a sober coach and Snooki is now mom to a baby boy. Do not turn on the television just yet; there is more to come from these guidettes.

Did you really think that Snooki’s child was born to be off of television? Surely he will be shown in a leopard onesie and gold chains. For those purposes, Snooki & JWOWW was just picked up for another season. Hopefully, the spinoff will fail as miserably as the original.

For those who want to see even more idiocy, there will be a marathon on Sept. 6 at 10 a.m., followed by a “Gym, Tanning, Look Back” reflection episode at 5 p.m. This makes sense because everyone has grown so much since the start of the show.

The sixth and final season of the Jersey Shore starts on Oct. 4. Until then, be grateful that your roommates are not as horrifying as the ones on the show, and if you are looking for swag, there is always Justin Beiber.
