I’ve never watched MTV’s Jersey Shore and never intend to, but if you do, you might be interested to know that the entire cast will be replaced for the third season — which I assume is next season — but the new cast members will start in season two. What do you want to bet this is because the entire current cast demanded a big pay raise after the apparently successful first season, as MTV’s highest-rated series. Not sure that means much considering the cast are reportedly only getting $5,000 per episode while 16 year-old Angus T. Jones of Two and a Half Men gets $250,000 per episode. Does anyone still watch MTV? Weren’t they a music video channel once? Well let’s hope that the new crew has better nicknames than Snooki, The Situation and JWOWW.
