Friends: You can't live with them, and sometimes, your life might be safer without them. Such is the case with Shain, Joey and Tyler on MTV's newest reality series Buckwild. These redneck teens can make a good time out of anything — even jumping off a bridge into power plant water! Sounds like fun, right? Yeah, we didn't think so. We'd say we feel bad for Tyler, but we can't forget how he and Cara hooked up in Anna's bed. Gross! Catch two all-new episodes of MTV's Buckwild on...

'Buckwild' Is What Happens When People Stop Being Polite And Start Producing Poverty Voyeurism

"Buckwild," the West Virginia-centered MTV reality show that's been compared to both "Jersey Shore" and "Jackass," is set for its second airing tonight after the show's debut back-to-back episodes scored strong ratings . Like all reality shows, "Buckwild" has its critics, and chief among them is West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, who -- despite having no problem playing to stereotypes when it's suited him -- decried the show in a letter to MTV's president Stephen Friedman as a "travesty" that profits from its depictions "of the poor decisions of our youth." Less esteemed critics have sounded similar concerns. Over at Crasstalk , one predicts that "Buckwild" will "never show a doctor, a teacher, a lawyer or even a competent store clerk," let alone any of West Virginia's unique wonders. The A/V Club's Austin Bernhardt agrees , saying, "Despite their oh-so constant declarations to the contrary," the show's cast members' "hometown pride and country upbringing don’t manifest themselves in any fascinating or unusual lifestyle quirks." It's just an exploration of the most generic sort of stupidity. Read More...

The Big Difference Between Buckwild and Jersey Shore Has Finally Been Revealed

'Buckwild' Premiere: 'Redneck' Dump Truck Swimming Pool

Before it had even premiered, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin was calling for MTV to cancel their new reality series "Buckwild." The show follows the proud "redneck" antics of a group of 20-somethings in West Virginia, and MTV didn't cancel it. In the premiere, the gang got up to all sorts of trouble, finding fun where they could. They set fires, got evicted, got into fights and even swam in toxic water. When they got tired of that, they got creative. They turned a dump truck into a swimming pool. "We ain’t got much, but we have fun with what we got," castmember Shain said. That sentiment was echoed by Cara. "Shain’s like a redneck MacGyver." Airing in the timeslot once held by " Jersey Shore ," the network is certainly hoping the antics of this "redneck" group can tap into the same zeitgeist that propelled the "Jersey" cast to the forefront of popular culture. See what they come up with next on "Buckwild," Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
