‘Jersey Shore’ closes out run with soft ratings

3.1 million tune in to series finale Thursday on MTV

MTV’s “Jersey Shore” ended its six-season run on a low note, drawing 3.1 million viewers for the series finale Thursday night.

That’s a steep drop from the 4.6 million who tuned in to season debut and a huge decrease from the average of 9 million viewers who tuned every week during season three.

The reality adventures of Snooki and the Situation ended with little fanfare, long removed from the banner days when the tumultuous cast was the rage across the pop culture landscape.

MTV had no idea how popular the series would become when it launched in December 2009, and it helped the cabler set ratings records along the show’s three-year path.

Spinoff “Snooki & JWoww” was given a second season, which is set to debut in January, while it’s doubtful “The Paulie D Project” will return after soft ratings during its first season.
