Jersey Shore Threatened In Canada

| Filed under: TV NewsSnooki

MTV Canada might be forced to deprive Canadian viewers of Jersey Shore, Cribs, Downtown Girls, and Teen Mom next year.

The CRTC, Canada’s TV policy-maker is questioning what Jersey Shore and the other shows have to do with MTV Canada’s “original programming mandate to operate an all talk-show format."

"After a review of your broadcast schedule, it would appear that several of your programs are not consistent with your nature of service, such as 'Jersey Shore,' 'Cribs,' 'Downtown Girls' and 'Teen Mom,'” said a representative from CRTC to MTV Canada.

Some suspect the only reason the CRTC is cracking down is because of Jersey Shore’s domination in ratings.

Don’t do it, Canada! The people of your country would be lost without Snooki!

    that sux for canada!!! but mtv doesn't play music at all anymore!!! can't remember the last time i even saw a video played on mtv



  2. 2

    the wont take JS off..but they could be questioning it because Toronto is doing there own version of JS. *shakes head*



  3. 3

    keep teen mom in canada screw jersey shore it's a waste of an hour on tv that could be put to better use



  4. 4

    remember when music tv (mtv) was about… music?



  5. 5

    but then again, music died in the late '90s



  6. 6

    MTV bought out a Talk only station here in Toronto, hoping to turn it into what you have in the States. They've been trying to alter their license fore years but can't get it through. That's why great shows like The After Show with Jessi and Dan started, it had to be all live hosts all the time. they've been pushing it and finally a crack down is coming. A live Snooki show would air here NO PROBLEM!



  7. 7

    I live in Calgary, Alberta, and I certainly can live without Snooki. This is the best decision made in Canada. Lord knows we haven't made too many good decisions in the past, like legalizing prostitution. Those people in Forest Lawn are going to be devastated!



  8. 8

    really? Way to go CRTC for only waking up now. MTV has been on the air doing this for how many years now in Canada? Besides, it's not MTV's fault that the CBC is so damn boring. Maybe the CBC should have a 'Scotia Shore' and try to compete for some ratings and then maybe we could save some tax dollars by not having to pay for the idiot's salary at the CRTC that only just 'flagged' this now.



  9. 9

    Our country, Canada, deals in art Perez. Not trash like Jersey Shore. Part of the reason your country is in the state it's in.

    Why would the CRTC give a crap about Jersey Shore's ratings?



  11. 11

    I'd be lost without Teen Mom. uhhhg.



  12. 12

    Oh please….. The show don't dominate ratings in English Canada. They don't bring 1M canadians in ratings…



  13. 13

    PLEASE let that be true. Canada would be even better if we didn't have to hear about those neanderthals.



  14. 14

    ppl that watch jersey shore must have ALOT of time on their hands. or maybe writing a thesis on Guido culture…dont see the attraction here..



  15. 15

    I really hope this isnt true! Us Canadians have a Thursday night ritual… GTL, get wasted, watch Jersey Shore, T-shirt time, 'cabs'r here!', hit the club, find some 10's who are DTF…. eeeevery Thursday

    For once I agree with the CRTC, they should ban it simply based on the fact the shows about a bunch of fucking morons.



  17. 17

    Export that crap somewhere else - thank you!
    We don't want it!



  18. 18

    YES! Get those morons off Canadian TV! HAHAHA



  19. 19

    I don't blame them. those kids on that show are dumb assholes. Wish they take the show off here too.



  20. 20

    Please keep your beloved Snooki within your country's border line…She's your national treasure…



  21. 21

    Yay! this is because us Canadians have taste!



  22. 22

    Our Country doesn't need Jersey Shore or any other Country!!!! Its gross, the things they say, calling women fat, ugly, stupid, Ho's teenagers watch this show we all know there minds are like sponges! They eat this shit right up. It makes me sick!!!!!!!!!



  23. 23

    NOOO!



  24. 24

    Re: garden45

    Oh please, get off your elitest high horse. If we that much more "cultured" than the Americans, as you insinuated, then Jersey Shore wouldn't be getting such damn high rating in Canada, and we wouldn't need to CRTC to pull it off the air as the free market would do that on its own (advertiser wouldn't want to put money on a show that nobody watches).

    Having a regulatory body step in and take this off the air simply because too many people watch it or because it "lacks class" is a bit too Orwellian for my liking. And the fact that so many people on here seem to support this action is actually a bit troubling; but then again, this is Canada right?



  25. 25

    I guess the M in MTV now stands for mediocre.



  26. 26

    I live in Canada and believe me I CAN LIVE WITHOUT Snooki! Fuck the Jersey Shore.. they're all a waste of space



  27. 27

    Yay for the CRTC!! - if MTV originally applied for broadcast permission as a music station, they have to keep with that format or re-apply. No reason they should get special treatment - maybe this will force them to BRING BACK THE MUSIC! Keep that reality crap off the music channels or rebrand!



  28. 28

    Ummm… we can live without Snooki, thank you very much. Though it doesn't help that we have some imitation show in the works -_-' …



  29. 29

    Re: garden45

    I'm sure Karla Homolka would love it.



  30. 30

    As a Canadian from Toronto, this chick is lame. No offense, but I've met way cooler people that dont look like a cabbage patch kid with blotchy nasty tans.



  31. 31

    Haven't watched MTV in years. Music Television? Nah. Garbage Television.



  32. 32

    I'm glad they are getting rid of this crap. I'd rather watch Hammy The Hamster



  33. 33

    Am I the only one that thinks this show is a bunch of dumb twits that will have fucked up skin in 4 years?



  34. 34

    I GUARANTEE you that one day. We are all going to look back at current events and entertainment from this time in our history as a country, and be appalled. Jersey Shore will be the great "What were we thinking". Not one of our more classy moments, when it comes to TV and the arts.



  35. 35

    Re: jsqtsa – - No, no. As someone from NY - you can have Snooki. Please, we don't want her any more than you do. And while we're shipping them away, take 'The Situation' too, please!



  36. 36

    Re: garden45 IF YOU ARE SO PROUD THAT YOUR COUNTRY IS SO CULTURED AND DEALS IN ART WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING WIHT YOUR SKANK ASS ON PEREZ HILTON'S TRASHTASTIC WEBSITE? I ALSO WANT TO SEND A SHOUTOUT TO CANADA FOR YOUR CITIZENS PAUL BERNARDO AND KARLA HOMOLKA. I GUESS I MISSED THE PART WHERE THEY WERE ARTISTIC.



  37. 37

    ..I think everyone should get off their high horse for just a minute here. First of all, you are on a gossip site… I think that pretty much proves how much free time you have. So don't rag on people who watch reality tv.. it's fucking entertaining! and it's a good hour to just chill out. I'm Canadian and i'm not going to pretend like i'm better than america just because some fuckers want to take away some trashy shows on MTV..(i'm talking to you garden45) Don't act like you're better than anyone else!



  38. 38

    I'm a Canadian who just does not understand why the American people would celebrate a fat little orange troll - piggy up on her hooves - trash fashion victim who looks like she chases parked cars.
    Face meet palm.



  39. 39

    This chick is writing a book? You must be kidding. What is the topic? How to be the biggest idiot while drinking pomegranate to "enhance" herself while pouring a 3/4 cup of vodka in it. Hollywood needs to go back to the old days when a production was more tangible instead of this meaningless junk.



  40. 40

    Good for Canada. Newsflash: not all television from the usa is worth broadcasting elsewhere in the world.
    I think americans should think more carefully about what shows they export, as it is presenting an image to the rest of the world…you would think americans would not want others to see shows such as this one or jerry springer…as they project a negative image of the usa and its people. The usa is already hated enough, do you really need to add to it with crap like jersey shore??

    Shows such as this one just make me happy and proud that i am a Canadian, and not from the usa. I would be ashamed and embarrassed to say that those people were from my country…i don't know how anyone with half a brain could stand watching those idiots, and i dont know how people would want to admit they watch it and promote it to others. It's all mind boggling to me.

    Society really is going down the crapper.



  41. 41

    from the text it sounds like if they meant that MTV doesn't provide music like the name implies.



  42. 42

    THATS BULLSHIT :(

    47

    What, Canadians have standards?



  48. 48

    I love how my country is finally coming to their senses.
    This show should go off the air, it's a bunch of people just partying
    and being funny on a camera. They weren't really anybody before
    this show. I gotta say Vinnie is pretty sexy, but still. If you through
    a bunch of randoms on a tv show and made it about partying
    they'd be just as famous. It's so trashy for TV.



  49. 49

    NOOOOOOOOOOO i live in canada please keep al those shows except cribs BORING.
    keep jersey shore and teen mom and i remeber when mtv was for music when eminem was on it and it was called Em Tv AWWW :)



  50. 50

    MTV Canada is a joke. They only have three episodes of Cribs and run them every day.



  51. 51

    what the hell? why does canada always get ripped off? who orders mtv so they can watch talk shows?!



  52. 52

    Re: LetttyB – hey dumbass, want me to list all the psycho serial killers that your country spewed out?



  53. 53

    even if all those shows are remove people are still going to find ways to watch it. i personally rarely watch anything on tv anymore.



  54. 54

    Can not happen fast enough..what trailertrash



  55. 55

    fuck that i want jersey shore and teen mom



  56. 56

    It's not an issue of the CRTC not wanting Jersey Shore- we (Canadians) get it resold on other networks, the issue is that MTV applied for it's broadcasting license on the premise of airing a certain format and it's not doing that. Jeresy Shore is just - an example of a show that's violating it's application.

    As an Italian Canadian Jersey Shore is trash, I don't get it or care for it at all- but if you want to watch it, go nuts. And to the jerks who brought up Karla Homolka - seriously, that's the only thing you can come up with? Canada is the best part of North America, and you want to bring up psychos- GEORGE BUSH- ’nuff said.



  57. 57

    Re: garden45 – - There's trash in every country. Canada is no exception. I heard that there is supposedly some Canadian version of the JS coming out… take from that what you will.



  58. 58

    i will be so sad if this happens. it'll suck living in canada if this happens:(



  59. 59

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is true. Who gives a shit about Snooki? Talk about an overexposed dumbass!



  60. 60

    dont do it canada we need those shows in our lives!!!!!



  61. 61

    Crap crap crap..what a comment on our society that people actually watch shite like that!
    Same goes for Teen mom or whatever it's called!
    Oh yea, let's glorify teen pregnancy…NOT!
    Why don't you Snooki and teen mom loser fans read a newspaper and shake up your brains if you have any.
    Who thinks of putting these moronic programs on the air? Has it come to this?
    Has our younger generation become so dumb that they can't raise the bar??



  62. 62

    Canada is lame like that, the CRTC is our own little version of the Nazi Gestapo. They dont let us watch American shows because they say it kills Canadian culture, then you watch a Canadian show and want to kill yourself. THANK FUCKING GOD for the internet, I can just stream all your good shows and not have to waste my time on bullshit like Corney Gas and other bullshit shows.



  63. 63

    BitTorrents.



  64. 64

    Ugh Good riddance. the less I see of that dumb whore the better. Step in front of a bus you disgusting fake tanning stumpy troll.



  65. 65
