Apparently Mike Rowe has worked every dirty job known to man because the show is ending. Earlier this week Discovery announced that American Chopper was ending after a decade and now Dirty Jobs is gone after 8 years. Discovery plans on focusing on things that matter to Americans like toddler pageants, interventions and theorizing that Caylee Anthony was killed by aliens. “A few weeks ago, I was officially informed that Dirty Jobs had entered into a new phase.” Mike wrote. “One I like to call, 'permanent hiatus.' Or in the more popular industry vernacular, canceled. 'Dirty Jobs' is a very personal show, and it's difficult for me to imagine a future that does not involve exploding toilets, venomous snakes, misadventures in animal husbandry and feces from every species.”
Mike will be missed, but I suppose he will still have his Ford commercials and if things get really rough, he can always head back to QVC.
