MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - MTV says the new reality show about some wild young West Virginians will be picked up for a second season.
"BUCKWILD" has drawn criticism from a variety of quarters, including Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, for what some see as a stereotypical, negative portrayal of the state's youth.
The half-hour, 12-episode series follows nine friends who find crazy ways to fill their free time, from clubbing in Morgantown to turning dump trucks into swimming pools.
Since its premiere last month, it's become the No. 1 original cable series on Thursday nights for 12- to 34-year-olds. MTV says it pulls in an average of 3 million viewers per episode.
The season one finale with two back-to-back episodes begins 10 p.m. Thursday, preceded at by cast interviews starting at 8 p.m. Eastern.
