Washington Times ^ | December 18, 2012 | Stephen C. Webster

Posted on 12/18/2012 5:20:11 PM PST by george76

In addition to cancelling its popular “American Guns” reality show, The Discovery Channel confirmed to Raw Story on Tuesday that firearms enthusiast Ted Nugent will also not be returning to the channel in any form or fashion.

After Friday’s devastating massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, the spokesperson said that Nugent would definitely not be returning to the Discovery Channel.

So, why is Nugent being punished? He didn’t harm anyone.

It’s an elite power push! Watch, it’s just started.

Very sad! Hopefully enough people won’t get caught in the wave. They are trying to swing the US majority into gun control, with THEIR limits!

It sounds like a good show to be picked up by BlazeTV as they attempt to become a full channel. They already have Independence USA, but I think this would be a nice complement to that.

Get rid of cable or satellite tv. Get an antenae for some local junk if you must . Internet service can provide all you need, plus the ability to be selective in what you watch, Netflix Hulu etc.

I suggest they cancel any shows about Chicago until they clear up the 436 murders for 2012. Maybe Obammy will cry a little for Chicago.

I was only 2 years old then, but I remember in the 1980's doing a paper on gun control in college. I remember seeing all the media back then as I did my research.

Nugent raises the averaqe IQ of Discovery’s programming above their target audience. That’s bad for ratings.

He didn’t have any viewers either. When people don’t watch your show, it gets cancelled. I laugh at all the threads about this show. Such interest in the cancellation but zero interest while it was on. That is the reason it was cancelled....a dismal amount of people watching. Breaking Amish and Hooney boo boo have incredible ratings in comparison. Perhaps we could have Honey Boo Boo using a weapon. Perhaps that will make you guys happy.

Yea so why are the canceling the American Guns show? It had good ratings for that network.

Don’t hurt yourself trying to think of an answer.

You’re foolish to think this has to do with ratings. It’s an agenda. And your smart ass answer about Honey Boo Boo shooting a gun? That would be more productive than what they really do on that show. Uneducated morons and their teen pregnant daughter and useless father, fat mother.
That show adds more to the cultural rot than a gun.

Oh wow. In 1968 did they have a tv show about guns that nobody watched too? The show barely get a million people watching. Heck Hooney Boo Boo had six million eye balls.

Sorry but that is what people are watching...honey boo boo. It is not my fault. I wonder how many episodes of American Guns you watched or even if you knew it was even on. I had no idea and obviously nobody else did either. The network gave it TWO seasons to get some eye balls and it failed. Money is the bottom line when it comes to watching TV shows. You can jump up and down saying differently but that is the bottom line. Now you should be pissed at the American public for not watching the show.

You guys? The comment I made was regarding the fact that they said his show was cancelled after the Sandy Hook incident. If it was cancelled only because of ratings, why mention Sandy Hook? This article makes it seem he was cancelled to punish him.

Perhaps you need an attitude adjustment. What say you?

“It’s an elite power push! Watch, it’s just started.”

The elites are cowards and don’t have the guts or guns to start anything. If you doubt me, corner a leftist in a dark parking lot with nobody around and scream at him, calling him a Nazi, a baby killer and a moron. He’ll piss in his pants.

The rat leftists don’t criticize mooslems for their treatment of women because they’re trying to recruit them as a surrogate army to kill us because they don’t have the guts to do it themselves. American leftists are gutless worms, and they know if bullets start flying they’ll be wiped out.

No. However, I do follow TVbytheratings.com. It tells you all you need to know about TV show ratings. The problem with some otherwise intelligent people on this site is that they don’t do their homework and end up spouting really ignorant comments that are not true and making the rest of us look stupid to those liberals you talk about. We are conservative and should be knowledgable in things without saying untrue statements.

dforest. Come on. Seriously I was not directing my post to you. It is to the general group. If I was going to direct something to you personally, I would FREEPMAIL you. To be honest, I never heard of the show. I did some research on the ratings and saw that it was a dismal rated show. I just wanted to have some facts to back up my statements. If it makes people feel better to think or know that the show was cancelled because of the shooting then that is ok. I don’t want people stressed out over a tv show.

#######

This wasn’t addressed to me but as a fan of the Honey Boo Boo show I’m happy to see a poor family make some money...beats SNL with Jamie Foxx saying he gets to kill White people and “how Black is that”.

Nobody had a problem with kids like Shirley Temple, Andy Rooney, Liz Taylor, the kid who played Buckwheat, Topsie in GWTW, Little Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz”, the Olsen twins.....I could go on but kids are cute to watch and I hope Honey Boo Boo does really well in the future. Just my 2 cents worth.

I stopped the satellite TV subscription in 2003. Do the same, if you want to see more of the truth about what goes on around us. Leaving television behind can also be good for your health (more exercise, outdoors more enjoyable).
