MTV cancels 'Buckwild'

West Virginia senator Joe Manchin III finally got his wish… though he surely didn’t want it to come true this way.

MTV officially announced today that it has canceled Buckwild, a reality show about southern teens that was initially touted as the new Jersey Shore. Given Buckwild star Shain Gandee’s sudden death on April 1, the news isn’t entirely shocking: “We felt it was not appropriate to continue without him. Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately,” the network said in a statement. MTV also revealed that it will air a special called Buckwild: WV to the NYC this Sunday, April 14, following an entire day of programming dedicated to Gandee.

As unexpected as the cancellation may be, one person isn’t happy about it: Producer J.P. Williams, who railed against MTV in an interview late Tuesday.


'Buckwild' camera crew not with Shain Gandee at time of death

Production crews were not with a young star of the reality show Buckwild when he died over Easter weekend and hadn’t filmed him since earlier in the week, MTV officials said Wednesday.

Shain Gandee, 21, was found dead Monday in his SUV near Sissonville, along with two passengers.

Autopsies determined that all three died of carbon monoxide poisoning, possibly caused by the vehicle’s tailpipe being submerged in mud. That could have allowed the invisible gas to fill the vehicle’s cabin. READ FULL STORY

MTV orders second season of 'Buckwild' -- EXCLUSIVE

Brace yourselves for a return visit to West Virginia: MTV has just ordered a second season of Buckwild, EW has learned.

Season 1 of the raucous reality series — which trails nine twenty-somethings in the small town of Sissonville as they party, fight, and pull off don’t-try-this-at-home stunts — has been averaging 3 million viewers in Jersey Shore‘s old Thursdays-at-10 p.m. slot. (Season 1 of Jersey Shore drew the same number of viewers.) In MTV’s target demo of 12- to 34-year-olds, Buckwild is currently the No. 1-rated original cable series on Thursday nights.

'Buckwild' exclusive clip: Shain loves his truck and destroys his truck


They say we only hurt the ones we love, which explains why Buckwild‘s Shain has a nasty habit of completely destroying his prized possession: His truck. “I’m always wrecking my truck or tearing it up somehow,” says Shain in a clip from tonight’s episode. Immediately after he says that, he races his truck around several trees, over a river, through the woods, and up a steep incline. Watch the exclusive clip below; the episode airs tonight at 10 on MTV. READ FULL STORY

MTV's 'Buckwild': Sneak a peek at a 'dump truck pool party' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Remember when you were a little kid and it was so hot out that you’d line up a bunch of sprinklers and run through them? Yeah, that’s not exactly how the stars of Buckwild cool off in Sissonville, W. Va. They beat the heat by filling a dump truck with a bunch of water, jumping off the roof of their house and hoping for the best. Actually, this may not even be the craziest thing that happens tomorrow night at 10 p.m. in the Jersey Shore time slot, as MTV uncorks the double-episode premiere of the already-controversial reality series that chronicles the exploits of nine small-town young adults who like to party first and ask questions later. Check out the following clip to see why Shain is called  “the redneck MacGyver,” and then register your amusement or outrage below. READ FULL STORY

MTV to debut 'Buckwild' in 'Jersey Shore' slot on Jan. 3 -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In just a few weeks, it will be time to pack up the beach towels, tanning oils, and tanning oils and say goodbye to Jersey Shore for good. How will you fill your Thursday nights at 10 p.m.? MTV is hoping to hit pay dirt (mud?) several hundred miles southwest of New Jersey with Buckwild, a new reality series about nine young-adult friends in small-town West Virginia who say they are living by the motto, “Whatever happens, happens.” And what seems to be happening is a lot of riding down hills inside giant tires, driving trucks dangerously through mud, tearing up the trails on ATVs and motorcycles, drinking, body licking, fighting with neighbors, and doing Jackass-y stunts that sometimes involve construction equipment. But don’t worry, there’s a heartfelt side to all of this ruckus, as you will see in this two-minute trailer, when one guy gives flowers to a girl he’s sweet on. READ FULL STORY
