‘Dirty Jobs’ Gets Jobbed?
From a blog post written by Mike Rowe, star and producer of the Discovery Network show Dirty Jobs:
It never fails.
Whenever Dirty Jobs goes off the air for a few months, people start to wonder if the show has been canceled. Rumors begin to swirl, and questions about the show’s future fill my inbox. Over the years it’s been my pleasure to assure anxious fans that Dirty Jobs is coming back for another season. And indeed, we always have. Alas, this year, I’m afraid I cannot dispel the rumors. A few weeks ago, I was officially informed that Dirty Jobs had entered into a new phase. One I like to call, “permanent hiatus.” Or in the more popular industry vernacular, canceled.
Considering the climate we live in these days, one is forced to ask: Was it because Mr. Rowe supported Mitt Romney?
