Jersey Shore negotiates for a second season

Mtv has reportedly been in negotiations with the cast-mates from the hit reality series. According to many media outlets a source says that Mtv is now offering the cast $10,000 per episode. Mtv originally offered the cast $5,000 per episode plus a signing bonus of $10,000. The cast is negotiating as a whole in the same style the cast of Friends did with NBC in 2002.

I know for many the $5,000 an episode sounded great, but keep in perspective what Mtv is paying the cast of the Hills. Lauren Conrad was making over $125,000 an episode before he departure from the hit Mtv show. Also we can not forget the deal Sharon Osbourne got for the second season of the Osbournes. Sharon Osbourne struck a $20 million deal paying each family member $5 million.

According to ABC News shows like Jersey Shore and Teen Mom has helped Mtv's parent company Viacom. The network has been struggling for ratings since 2006. The Jersey Shore has become the top prime time show on Thursday night for ages 12-34.

There is now sources saying Mtv wants to have the second season by Summer. Due to Jerseys cold winter weather the production may have to be moved to another location and Miami is on the top of the list.

    First of all Lauren Conrad was doing Laguna Beach before the Hills. Of course they're going to offer her more on her spin off show because Laguna Beach was so successful for a few seasons.

    Second Sharon Ozbourne should get a lot of $$$ because they were celebrities before their MTV show. It's freakin Ozzy Ozbourne for christs sake! The man is a music legend. His concert tours awarded him millions.

    These Jersey Shore kids should thanks their lucky stars that they're even popular right now. They'll fade away just like the Jabbawockeez did from MTV's America's Best Dance Crew. It's 15 hollywood minutes of fame. If these kids want to work more than just shut up and take what they offer u. If the second season is a hit then u can up it for a third season and ever season after that. Thats how the business goes. U don't want to take the offer than you'll be replaced. Simple as that.

    Ratings are ratings. If Ozzy is a legend or not if the show is bringing in advertisers money because of the high amount of viewers then I think they should get a decent pay check. The cost of production for a reality show is much lower than a scripted series, so MTV is going or is already making a major profit. I'm not saying they should get millions but Mtv's offer was skimpy.
