    [h=1]MTV’s ‘Buckwild’ Premiere Beats ‘Jersey Shore’ Debut[/h] By DOMINIC PATTEN | Friday January 4, 2013



    [​IMG]

    Its been called “The Jersey Shore Of Appalachiaâ€, but MTV’s Buckwild last night bested its network time slot predecessor. The 10 PM debut of the reality series, about a group of thrill-seeking young adults in small-town West Virginia, pulled in an audience of 2.49 million viewers and a 1.4 rating over its back-to-back episodes Thursday night. That’s more than 1 million more viewers than the 1.375 million who watched the premiere of Jersey Shore in 2009. Of course, Jersey Shore went on to get record ratings for MTV; at one point, in its third season, Jersey Shore had an audience of 9 million as Snooki, Pauly D and the other housemates became national topics of conversation — even attracting kind words from GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Jersey Shore wrapped up its six-season run December 20 with soft ratings.


    Last month, even before it debuted, Buckwild attracted some of the controversy common to Jersey Shore when Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-WVa) called on MTV to “put a stop to the travesty called Buckwild.†He said MTV president Stephen Friedman and the network “preyed on young people, coaxed them into displaying shameful behavior — and now you are profiting fromit. That is just wrong.â€

    Have no interest in that show, but this movie about West Virginia folk was entertaining:

    It's the human experience as lived by people with reptile brains.

    I changed the channel in the middle of the second episode. I doubt I'll be watching again next week.

    So true...watched the first episode and could barely understand one of those dudes who talked and looked like a borderline retard. Hope they supply more subtitles in future episodes like they do for Honey Booboo.

    Of course the premiere beat the premiere of Jersey Shore. JS eventually did 9 million, though - doubt this abortion gets near that.

    All the girls on the show are from Charlston and don't even have accents.

    The boy idiot West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin gave the show priceless publicity in demanding it be boycotted since it makes West Virginia look bad. Those Moral Majority types never know when to shut up. They think they killed Howard Stern's career lol

    At least we can all agree that these people behave in a completely normal manner and not as if they have a camera documenting their every move...
