Bye, Dirty Jobs

Got the shock of my life going through the Twitter feed (@brieftvrants) when I saw a Tweet that Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs is cancelled after eight seasons. Mike Rowe says so himself here on the Huffington Post.

First response: WTF.

Second response (after some thought): Well, I think they've exhausted every dirty job to be had in the continental United States. It might be a little more interesting if it went global, but that'll make the show really expensive to make, which might give Discovery cause to cancel for that reason.

I wonder how much online backlash will there be if the same fate happened to Mythbusters. Of epic proportions, I imagine.
