Discovery Series ‘American Guns’ Cancelled


There will not be a third season of Discovery‘s docu reality series American Guns. The show, about a family of gun makers, has been drawing attention following Friday’s 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 show’s Facebook page. American Guns has now been cancelled. Discovery sources say the decision was quietly made awhile ago, however it didn’t 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 rating, 0.87 in adults 25-54 and 0.79 in adults 18-49, up 50% from last year’s 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 cancelledDirty Jobs and American Chopper.

    Everyone is jumping on this “bail” firearms wagon. Cerberus Group is dumping Freedom Arms according to Faux Business Report.

    After what that Conn. Oinker put out yesterday, I expect to see lots of Sporting Goods, Ammo makers & any business that deals with firearms to either quit carrying firearms & associated products. So called pro 2nd Amendment business will bail on the consumer. Profit is ALWAYS the bottom line.

    They can always replace it with a new series called “American Drones”

    They could cancel every single “program” on t.v., and I’d never even know it.

    Never touch the stuff myself.
