What Garden State folks might put up with from "The Jersey Shore" is not going to fly in West Virginia, not if Sen. Joe Manchin III has his way. The Democrat from the Mountain State is speaking out about the new MTV series "Buckwild" which appears to be trying to duplicate the "Jersey Shore" formula in Appalachia.

The show premiers in January and the Senator has only seen previews. The article above includes a trailer further down the page, so check it out for yourself! What's your take on it?

Yep, I agree with ubergeek... the show looks ridiculous. Guess there's no accounting for taste in what passes for entertainment today!
