CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin is asking MTV to cancel the West Virginia-based reality show "Buck Wild" that's set to air next year.
Manchin's office said Friday that he sent a letter to the president of the network saying the show profits off of "poor decisions of our youth."
The senator also said the show set to begin airing Jan. 3 plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of his home state.
The network ordered 12 episodes of the show last fall, and a trailer shows the cast drinking and swearing, four-wheeling and fighting, even filling a dump truck with water and using it as a swimming pool. It was shot in Sissonville and Charleston.
MTV declined comment Friday through a spokeswoman.
