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 Fridays 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.

Instead we will get more swamp boys and trash picker reality shows. Oh joy...
It’s a “Free-for-All” in pointing fingers unnecessarily.
So, why is Nugent being punished? He didn’t harm anyone.
You have to settle for Honey Boo Boo and duck guys now.
And then they will go after Mythbusters in due course.
Has Django Unchained been pulled from theaters?
Discover is in the Brown Clown’s pocket. This is the kind of knee jerk actions that caused Hitler to come to power as a dictator.
Jaw- droppingly stupid.
I wonder which of Obama’s donors they’re crushing the price of their company for...
The lot of them.
No, Cause blacks kill white guys all the time.
this would be a prime addition to another channel’s lineup, if there’s a smart one out there.
This is turning into a replay of 1968, right down to the damning of TV shows.
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!
I “untethered” long ago precisely because the cable channels are all owned by Lefties.
This is insane.
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.
Nugent was publicly against Obama and is very pro gun... the libs don’t need any other reason to destroy a person.
I am as close to giving up my TV as I have ever been. I am tired to these leftist. I am tired of funding their companies. I am about ready to DUMP DirecTV and not have TV any more.
Well..That should do it.Cancel any education about guns! That’ll deter everyone that wants to comitt mass murder.Perhaps they can just play vidoe games and learn that way.
I’m with you. Seriously considering dumping cable.
Fine. Glenn Beck needs more programming for Blaze TV.
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.
That would be tough for me to do, but I have been thinking about it too.
Wang Dang Sweet Poontang. Discovery will pay for that.
DO IT! I did it in 2006 and its great. Why do conservatives
financially support the media industrial comples which
openly despises them and actively works to destroy their
At least try it for a while..
Im still waiting on the media to call Jamie Foxx an accessory to murder for last week telling the SNL audience that killing white people is “Great” not a peep from the media.
Obama won’t cry for them because even though they are dead they still voted for Obama in November
Nugent raises the averaqe IQ of Discovery’s programming above their target audience. That’s bad for ratings.
So, why is Nugent being punished? He didnt harm anyone.
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.
Because Honey Boo Boo and Ancient Aliens are so much more redeeming?
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.
More h3ll to pay.
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?
Have you tried antennae? You won’t get Discovery, but each station usually has 3 different broadcasts simultaneously.
“Its an elite power push! Watch, its 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.
Don’t forget they took off Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe for Amish Mafia....
I think Mike Rowe campaigned for Romney.
Oh surprise surprise!
I bet a bunch of that audience for that crap is Obama supporters. You seem to know a bit about that Honey boo boo crap so are you a fan of that drivel?
I guess they’ll have to put on more globull warming shows now, like that Asian gunman insisted on.
better campaigning for Romney than Obama, even though Romeny was a big RINO.
You seem to know a bit about that Honey boo boo crap so are you a fan of that drivel?
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.
You seem to know a bit about that Honey boo boo crap so are you a fan of that drivel?
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).
