(CNN) — Considering that one of its stars isn’t really in a position to live with seven other partying roommates  — see: Snooki’s new  baby — it makes sense that MTV has decided to end “Jersey Shore” with season 6.

The series that added “fist-pumping,” “GTL” and “smushing” into our vocabulary — not to mention giving an alternate meaning to “situation” — will kick off the beginning of its final season on October 4 at 10 p.m.

Before then, MTV is intent on thoroughly riding the “Shore” franchise into the ground, giving fans more opportunities to see the cast with a pre-MTV Video Music Awards special, “Gym, Tan, Look Back.” It will offer a preview of final season footage starting at 4 p.m. on Sept. 6.

That will be followed by interviews with the cast during MTV’s VMAs pre-show at 5 p.m. Another option is to just leave your TV on MTV all day starting at 9 a.m. for the “Jersey Shore” marathon.

If this is disappointing news for you, perhaps you’ll take comfort in the fact that the spinoff series, “Snooki and JWoww,” did get a second season.
