One more note from Television Land

No more 'Dirty Jobs' on Discovery

I was personally upset and disgusted when Mike Rowe came out for Romney during the campaign and if we had lost, it would have been pretty hard to watch him any more. BUT now that it's all over and the good guys won (even Allen West has FINALLY admitted defeat), I really hope that Discovery isn't canceling the show over politics. I'm certainly willing to be gracious in victory and feel I'd have no problem enjoying the show again.

I doubt it's politics...look at the other show that got canceled! :)

Well, I thought the whole American Chopper saga was played out a long time ago. Because it was never about the bikes, as much as the drama and that was obviously being hyped to the point of embarrassment squick. Whereas---there will always be Dirty Jobs, and as long as Mike is willing to go out there and be snarky about them, I don't see why the show couldn't continue.

Too sad. We don't watch it regularly any more, but it was always amusing. Maybe Mike just got tired of all the, well, DIRT. ;)

He certainly took a lot of physical abuse as well. I think it was a Daily Show interview where he was enumerating his various injuries and it was quite a few. I still hope to someday accidentally run into him, since he lives in San Francisco. I've had several Tori Bellecci sightings in my own neighborhood.

Cool! Funny, lots of movies get shot in Montreal, but I've never seen a single celeb in the flesh. Clearly, I need to get out more. ;)

It's a long run...Romney cognitive dissonance or not.

True. Take some time to chill out, Mike. Maybe I'll see you in the Marina.
