The carefully polished images of many great American cities have had to endure the muddy footprints of reality-show exhibitionistas. But not every metropolis has the reputation to uphold that Charleston does. It has held the “Most Mannerly City in America,” designation for nearly two decades. The series, a showcase for a higher-end display of “Jersey Shore”-style debauchery, is so reviled in certain quarters that it has spawned Hate Watch sessions here and wherever displaced Charlestonians gather. Some, including Charleston’s longtime mayor, Joseph P. Riley Jr., refuse to watch it altogether, though he says he receives reports. It is not [the main characters'] love of the city that is being questioned; it is what they do on national television in their beloved city that is.--Jim Rutenberg, New York Times, April 18, 2014
