(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.
