What is Discovery thinking.... Dirty Jobs CANCELED! :(
Posted by: OWC Jamie

Read last night and still can't believe it's true, my son is very depressed. We've seen every episode, and you really have to admire what MIke Rowe has done with the show over the years and what he has done to promote hands-on labor in the USA.

It's a sad day.



Good Luck!

This is sad. While Discovery /TLC continues to support the child abuse that is "Honey Boo- Boo" and the delusion that is "Gold Rush" , they allow Mike Rowe's wit and celebration of every man to be cancelled?
I guess Discovery's decision reflects our society.
These are pretty pathetic choices on our part.

The show's been on a long time.
Maybe he did them all.
Wait! He never visited us.
The local news business can be tough stuff - ink stains, paper cuts, moderating of profane comments, fires, crashes, typos, corrections, password forgettin' and school board meetings.
Maybe it was just too much.

I read that yesterday too, and it was also mentioned at American Chopper was cancelled too, both shows ran 10 years.

I always thought Dirty Jobs was a much newer show than Chopper, maybe I first saw it much later, but I also thought that American Chopper was on much longer than 10 years. I remember years ago once the cast was famous they did commercials for AOL dial-up, and that seems like ancient history.

If anyone is so saddened by this news that they need an instant Mike Rowe fix, check out some of his older work if you haven't before.

Just one example.

Mike is an inspirational force.

I saw an episode a few years ago. At the end they mentioned they had pretty much ran out of ideas. I'm surprised it made it this much longer.

Mike Rowe seems like a personality that will quickly be snapped up by another show.

Want to see something funny watch Duck Dynasty on A&E. Well we find funny, if you didn't grow up out in the
country you might not find it funny but we sure do.

As a supporter of Gov. Romney, I'm sure there is at least one more dirty job he could do.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
