“A few weeks ago, I was officially informed that Dirty Jobs had entered into a new phase. One I like to call, ‘permanent hiatus.’ Or in the more popular industry vernacular, canceled. My first instinct was to immediately pass the news on to you, but frankly, it’s taken me a few weeks to digest. 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,” Rowe wrote in his blog post.

Rowe will still be on Discovery Channel as the narrator of Deadliest Catch, reports said.

Dirty Jobs is the second major reality franchise that has been canceled by Discovery Channel in the last couple of weeks. The first is American Chopper, which will air its finale episode on December 11, as earlier reported.
