There will not be a third season of Discoverys docu reality series American Guns. The show, about a family of gun makers, has been drawing attention following Fridays elementary school shooting in a Connecticut in which 26 people including 20 first-grade children were gunned down by a 20-year-old whose mom was a gun collector. There have been angry messages posted by viewers on the shows Facebook page. American Guns has now been cancelled. Discovery sources indicate the decision was quietly made awhile ago, however it didnt come to light until today. American Guns concluded earlier this year, a spokesperson said. Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show. The fact that the network is not even keeping repeats of the show on the air indicate that the Connecticut tragedy may have played at least some part in the decision.
The second season of American Guns got off to a strong start in April with 1.15 HH, 0.87 in adults 25-54 and 0.79 in adults 18-49, up 50% from last years series premiere. But the ratings subsequently dropped off and, in the end, Season 2 finished down double-digits from Season 1. I hear Discovery brass also felt there was no story left to tell, contributing to the cancellation decision. American Guns joins two veteran Discovery series that have been recently cancelled: Dirty Jobs and American Chopper.
I wonder if Discovery got a call from Team 0bama to pull the show? Not surprising since Hollywood are propagandists for the REGIME. This is an attack on the second amendment, not VIOLENCE! Remove the guns but keep the violence? WTF?
Perhaps we should ban all sales of the DVD 'Cars' and 'Cars 2' since cars kill far many more people per year than guns do..
BOYCOTT THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL!!
What is the gun community going to do about this tragedy?
I dunno. What is the gay community going to do about Penn State?
Ouch. But a fair response to unfair stigmatization. With the gay community, everyone would complain about smearing millions for the deviant and predatory behavior of a few.
is ODUNGO going to cancel PSY prancing at the WH after his “kill their children” comment?
I suspect not.
They are able to portray all of the subjects on that show in a sufficiently negative light that they will keep that show around.
BTW: I heard a few minutes of the Rush Limbaugh show today, and he seemed to have a fairly negative impression of preppers as well.
It is clear that none of are fit to live on this planet/s.
All politics aside, it was not as fun as Sons of Guns. I’ve seen more engaging shows related to guns. My two cents.
it is not like they dont have four or five other gun related shows
I already had my satellite TV service disconnected a couple of months ago. I get my news here, Brietbart, etc. I don’t support communism. If I want to watch a movie, I rent it. Found several good forums to spend time on, and don’t miss the tube one bit.
Notice no one in the media connected the disgusting comments from Jamie Foxx, who just last week on SNL said that killing white people “Isnt that great.” Yet the same media had NO problem accusing Sarah Palin of being an accessory to murder after Tucson..the hypocrisy of the media in this country is disgusting to say the least
It was boring. They probably canceled the show because it was boring.
Aren’t these the bozos who came out with All American Muzzies after 9/11? Geeez. Hypocricy has a new name. The Discovery Channel. Just like Discovery’s All American Muzzies, not all guns kill people. What a bunch of jackasses.
Will Hollywood also stop making grisly, morbid and sick movies?
I'm sure they will. Hahahhah!
Anywhay, why is it the antigunners don't go out and picket and protest those violent movies?
Dirty Jobs was really about the only thing worth watching on Discovery.
That’s a shame. Loved that show, and Paige was easy on the eyes.
There’s nothing on Discovery anyway. Alaska, Moonshine, Fast and Loud and that’s about it.
Haven’t watched it in at least half a year.
No, that was The Learning Channel, a God awful sewer of left wing crapola.
I think it’s owned by the same company as Discovery is though.
Thanks. I don’t know if I even have Learning Channel anymore. I never watch it.
wonder how long it’ll be before they poop can Mythbusters. They use firearms and it’s not a show if they don’t blow something up.
Found several good forums to spend time on, and dont miss the tube one bit.
Amen. What's on television is like a four-day head cold: yes, it's conceivable you could miss it, but only if you were far beyond desperate for entertainment.
She is definitely a cutie but kind of has the giraffe neck thing going on.
I’m sorry to see that. The History Channel had an excellent and very accurate History of Guns show on about 15 years ago.
God, Guns and Women...
The show grew old very quickly. Even among my crowd of serious gun enthusiasts their viewership had grown close to zero.
All women are NOT created equal!
I think I still have it on satellite, but I never watch it either, it’s trash.
Most of the time I watch the Investigation Channel, otherwise AMC, sci fi, tru tv for laughs sometimes, and that’s about it.
Cable tv really, really stinks.
She could swing her head like a flail, no doubt about that :D
There is the reason it was cancelled.
this is so effing stupid.
this whole country is acting idiotic.
..and Hillary has a concussion. And so severe she can’t testify on Benghazi.
Arent these the bozos who came out with All American Muzzies after 9/11?
Yep and was cancelled due to poor ratings just like American guns....nobody watched the show! What don’t you get?????
It was cancelled due to low ratings. If Paige and her Mom hadn’t been so HOT (in a plastic surgery kind of way) it probably would not have lasted the first season.
I wonder if Dad and junior will still be flying around Colorado in a chopper to make gun deals?
The whole show was dumb. I won’t miss it.
You want to see some good gun shows watch Monday Lock’n’Load on Sportsman Channel and Wednesday Night at the Range on Outdoors Channel. They have some GREAT gun shows without all the drama. But no hot babes dangit!
Anyone getting the inkling that the BSM is deliberately shutting down those gun reality shows as part of a political agenda?
What happened to sons of guns and family guns?
It was cancelled because it was a boring show and no one was watching
“Will they also cancel the show “Doomsday Preppers” because the lunatic’s mother was a prepper?”
No, they will pull it for the same reason as the aforementioned show. No viewers
Good move, there’s not much that comes out of the tube but trash. Not many can give it up.
“Sons of Guns” is far more diversified in their projects and have some characters you can like. They have taken on some very exotic restorations: the restored WW2 flamethrower; the USS KIDD WW2 reenactment; German 37mm, US 37mm, and US 57mm anti-tank guns; WW1 Maxim and propeller synchronizer; and M18A1 57mm recoilless rifle. I absolutely hated the episode where Jesse James had Red Jacket “bling” his Model D Browning Automatic Rifle.
That SoG has survived for 48 episodes, indicates it has some audience that AG never quite captured. The TV coverage certainly didn't hurt Red Jacket's or Gunsmoke’s businesses.
No, that was The Learning Channel, a God awful sewer of left wing crapola...
...what, you don’t like Say Yes to the Dress?
