Discovery Drops Ted Nugent From Network

Ted Nugent's reality special, Gun Country, has been canceled by Discovery following the mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. The network also canceled another series, American Guns.

Back in October, Discovery aired the one-hour special, Ted Nugent's Gun Country, which the rocker and gun activist claimed was going to get turned into a "regular feature." According to Nielsen, the special attracted around 864,000 viewers, but, as the network now states, the special and the series are gone forever.

In fact, an unnamed network representative told Raw Story that Nugent will "not be returning to the channel in any form or fashion."

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