MORGANTOWN, W.Va. —

MTV says reality show "Buckwild" about some wild young West Virginians will be picked up for a second season.

The show is filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston. It has drawn criticism from many quarters, including the state's Democratic U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, for what some see as a negative portrayal of the state's young people.

In December, Manchin asked the network to cancel the show, saying it profits off of "poor decisions of our youth" and portrays ugly, inaccurate stereotypes.

But MTV said Wednesday that "Buckwild" has been pulling in an average of 3 million viewers per episode since its premiere last month.

The half-hour, 12-episode series has been following nine hard-partying friends who find sometimes frightening ways to fill their free time.
