MTV Cancels Buckwild, Producer Furious

Buckwild

In the wake of Buckwild star Shain Gandee's sudden death, MTV has canceled the reality series — and the show's producer is not happy about it.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, J.P. Williams said, "This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They'll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding] and they cancel the show? There's something that smells of sh-- here on every level."

The Thursday Playlist: Person of Interest and Persons of Disinterest on MTV

Michael Emerson, Jim Caviezel

In one of the better winter cliffhangers before the holiday break, CBS' Person of Interest (9/8c) left off with Reese (Jim Caviezel) in custody, having saved his partner Finch's hide but failing to escape the scene of their latest caper before he was rounded up with the episode's bad guys. The feds know they have the elusive "Man in a Suit" in their grasp, but too bad for them that everyone they nabbed is similarly attired. Which guy in the suit is their prey? Reese isn't talking — some things never change. So while Finch (Michael Emerson) takes up the slack with the "machine," pretending to be a substitute teacher to help out a teen hacker prodigy, it's up to Detective Carter (Taraji P. Henson) to try to get the quietly lethal vigilante out of their clutches. (This story continues next week, so don't expect an instant miracle.)
