MTV’s anti-Jersey Shore is no more.

The network has pulled the plug on its inspirational reality effort The Buried Life after two modestly rated seasons, yet hopes to continue working with the team in another format. The show followed a quartet of friends who went around the country helping strangers accomplish their dreams while crossing off ambitious and whimsical items from their own personal bucket list (like streaking a stadium, giving a toast at a stranger’s wedding, etc).

So what about that list of 100 things they wanted to do before they died? Sources say the group has maintained a close relationship with MTV and have been working with the network on ways to either extend the show online or develop new digital or TV concepts. But Buried Life will not continue as an on-air series. Fist pumping > Altruism = Bummer.
