MTV to debut “Buckwild” in Jersey Shore slot


MTVIn just a few weeks, MTV is saying goodbye to Jersey Shore for good. The network is going in a different, yet similar direction in the Thursday night 10 PM time slot: Buckwild is a new reality series about nine young-adult friends in small-town (Sissonville) West Virginia who say they are living by the motto, “Whatever happens, happens,” reports Entertainment Weekly.

If you liked the wild life of the Jersey Shore cast, you’ll probably like Buckwild.

See the exclusive video from EW.

It’s a lot driving trucks dangerously through mud, tearing up the trails on ATVs and motorcycles, drinking, body licking, fighting with neighbors and each other, and doing Jackass-y stunts that sometimes involve construction equipment.

Buckwild debuts Jan. 3 at 10 p.m., and MTV will be airing two half-hour episodes back-to-back each week for six weeks.
