    Ted Nugent's 'Gun Country' Off the Air at Discovery

    Ted Nugent's American Guns will not return to the Discovery Channel's lineup. Whether that is a change of plans -- and if so, why -- is in dispute.

    The conservative rocker, who is an avid supporter of gun rights and antagonist of President Barack Obama, starred in the show Gun Country on the network in October, which featured him exploring America's "gun culture." The episode, which saw him firing machine gun rounds into bunkers among other things, garnered 864,000 viewers according to Nielsen.

    Nugent claimed that it was a new series -- he already had one on the Outdoor Channel, and Discovery wanted to do a dozen episodes a year -- but no further episodes were aired, and the network said on Tuesday that it was a standalone event. In September, they called it a one-hour special.

    "American Guns concluded earlier this year,” the network said in a statement. "Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show."

    The announcement comes days after the tragic school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, which has already led to multiple cancelations from Hollywood, including the premiere of Tom Cruise's film Jack Reacher and the pulling of the show Family Guy by Fox on Sunday.

    Did we replace him with Boo? May be "What Not To Wear"? Do we really believe that this will decrease the mentally ill or the purely evil? BT100dc
