Discovery Channel kicks Ted Nugent to the curb

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Rhiannon12866 (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: The Raw Story

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.

Speaking to Raw Story in remarks specified as “not for attribution,” a spokesperson admitted that “Ted Nugent’s Gun Country” didn’t do very well when it aired in October, even with fellow firearms fashionistas. Nielsen Ratings placed the viewership at about 864,000 people in all. But the network’s decision is not just about the numbers.

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. . .

7. I WATCHED THAT PROGRAM

 

I do not own any of the gun they show or talk about since I am not a gun nut. It is interesting to watch the mechanics of assembling the guns like the car or other task related programs.

I do not listen to any of the other guys music. I be a dead head.......

10. Cannot watch the Discovery Channel nor many of its counterparts such as

Animal Channel and The History Channel because of cheap reality programming. Our TV line-up seems to be flooded with formulated Jerry Springer T & A and lets see 'who gets thrown-off of the island', shows. Having that idiot Ted Nugent on the Discovery Channel was a new low for a science based station.

A Ted Nugent story, I was at a concert back in the 1980's and Ted came onto the PA system with a backstage interview. He started talking about being a hunter and blowing away animals for sport. People in the audience began to boo. Being at a concert and the audience giving a quarter of their attention to the announcements for this or that, the question started going around, 'Who is this asshole?'

Poor Ted, a day late and a dollar short just did not get his day in the sun with his God giving gun in hand...

20. Discovery wouldn't last so long as a profitable competitor to PBS.

hence the reality shows. At least the PBS shows like American Experience, Nova, etc. are available on DVD/Netflix/streaming online. And PBS has the best daily evening news show in my opinion, the PBS NewsHour.

14. Nugent probably has poor target shooting skills.

Likely couldn't shoot the mole off of his dick. Let him prove he can.

23. Oh, I think this is all about the numbers

If the show had done well, it would still be going on. While it might be nice to see it go, it is all about not getting the viewers.
