Posted by Rachel Raczka August 30, 2012 02:12 PM


Hey guys, we've got sad news.

Just brace yourself, OK? Because MTV has canceled "Jersey Shore." That's right, bros, after the entirety of season 6 (premiering Oct. 4) winds down, the fist-pumping fun will officially come to an end.

From what the networks says, the sixth season sounds like it will provide some closure, returning the ever-evolving cast (Snooki's baby! Jenni's face!) to their original stomping ground in Seaside Heights. However, should fans want to start the mourning process in advance, MTV has also announced "a hot tub full of farewell programming," including an hour-long "Gym, Tan, Look Back" retrospective.

No rest for weary ears. Only a day after Phillip Phillips was crowned the winner of this season's "American Idol," ABC launched its own singing program, "Duets," to a disappointing debut last night. The show finished a distant second in young adults to Fox's returning "So You Think You Can Dance," according to Variety.

The show, which pairs "Idol" veteran Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Jennifer Nettles, and Robin Thicke with contestants for, well, duets, drew 6.7 million viewers over its two-hour time slot, the report said. You can watch the full episode on ABC's site.

'The Voice': Who will win?

The last four voices gave it their all last night, leaving the choice of who wins "The Voice" in America's hands. The winner will be revealed in tonight's episode on NBC.

Tony Lucca put a country spin on Jay-Z's "99 Problems" that Blake Shelton and Cee Lo seemed to dig, and Christina Aguilera had a problem with. Aguilera took issue with the track, whose chorus includes an insult typically lobbed at women, calling the lyrics "derogatory." Perhaps the lyrics were a not-so-subtle way of Lucca taking a dig at Aguilera, who has been basically slyly slamming her fellow ex-mouseketeer for much of the season (Lucca's coach Adam Levine said he and Lucca previously discussed the lyrics and did not interpret the song as being derogatory toward women).
