Now see, if the geniuses at MTV can understand when a fad is fading, why the hell are there still like 37 vampire movies in production???
Sources have confirmed that MTV has scrapped plans on a new reality show called Bridge and Tunnel. The show would have been in the vein of The Jersey Shore, following a group of Staten Island dwellers as they work, play and smoosh in the tri-state area.
After several months of filming and prepping for the show's release, the network decided the throw the show out, agreeing that it was just to similar to The Jersey Shore to work. As of now, even with so much material to work with, sources believe that the show will never see the light of day.
In all fairness, the show might still be good. We think people would have watched to fill the void left behind once Snooki packs up her pickles for the season.
But still, we're happy to hear someone is thinking of going outside the box for new ideas!
Hey, here's one for you, MTV: PLAY MUSIC VIDEOS!!!!
