Enoc Dylan started this petition to CMT and

This is a petition for the citizens of Gainesville, Florida. With the release of the first preview of the upcoming CMT show "Gainesville", it is clear that this show may represent our beloved city in a bad light. It is my hope to avoid a stereotypical view of Gainesville, much like "The Jersey Shore" did for the entire New Jersey community. The characters on the show do not accurately represent the citizens of our fine city of Gainesville whatsoever and I am calling forth the citizens to have your voice heard. It is my fear that the viewers and subscribers to the Country Music Channel will think that Gainesville is nothing but whiny, privileged, 20-somethings who are obviously just doing this show to make a dollar and exploit our city. With a population of almost 130,000 people, we are a melting pot of every nation with occupants not only here to study at one of the finest schools in the nation, but to call Gainesville their home and I for one question why these people on this program are now representing our city on a national stage. At the very least I propose that the shows name be changed to something that is less direct toward our city and possibly something more ambiguous in nature, instead of implying this is what it is like in our city.
