Mike Rowe tells fans that 'Dirty Jobs' has been scrubbed
It's going to be an unhappy Thanksgiving for fans of "Dirty Jobs." After eight years, star Mike Rowe took to the Interwebs to let the public know that he's navigated his last sewer for the show. "A few weeks ago, I was officially informed that 'Dirty Jobs' had entered into a new phase," he wrote in a post for the Huffington Post. "One I like to call, "permanent hiatus." Or in the more popular industry vernacular, canceled."
Rowe went on to admit that he waited several weeks to pass along the news in order to take some time to absorb it. "'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. Nevertheless, the future is here, and while it does not appear to contain any more 'Dirty Jobs,' it will almost certainly include another Thanksgiving. So in the spirit of the holiday, I'd like to thank those people most responsible for reinvigorating my erstwhile career, and launching the most honest show in the history of reality TV."
After thanking many, many people, Rowe wrote, "I can't say that 'Dirty Jobs' never jumped the shark (since I literally leaped over one in season two), but I'm proud to say it's still the same hatchet. The last episode looked pretty much like the first. We didn't become something we weren't. We never shared the sewer with Paris Hilton, and we never invited you to "tune in next week for a very special 'Dirty Jobs.'" We stuck to the mission statement. We stayed small. We worked hard. And we had a hell of a good time. It was as they say, a very good run." He also assured fans the mikeroweWORKS Foundation will continue to run.
And don't worry too much about Rowe. "As for me, good things are in the works. Not as dirty perhaps, but exciting nevertheless. I'm looking forward to the future, and feeling grateful for the past. As for the present, I'm going to eat the lions share of a large turkey waiting for me in the next room, drink some Champagne, catch up with family, watch the football game, and sleep till Christmas." Sounds good to us.
