Ultimately, if U-T TV wants to make a naked (sometimes literally) play for lowest-common-denominator programming, that’s U-T TV’s prerogative. But let’s call it what it is.
Forcing viewers who want to glean real insight from your content to wade through a sea of blonde stereotypes and penis innuendo is not “bold,” it’s banal. Treading the well-worn path of hosts who favor sexist jokes — one of the most tired fallbacks that exists in media — is not “ambitious,” it’s lazy. And showcasing an endless parade of “Anchorman” impersonators does not constitute a “new frontier” — it’s a shtick that proved embarrassing and outdated even by fictional 1970s standards.

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.
Dirty Jobs has been cancelled.
I’m compromising by buying a car from a company that doesn’t care to have a detail oriented person who knows how to use a spelling checker sell me a used car. But I’m not compromising my principles that people with criminal records who have done their time have a right to have input in to this clusterfuck that we call a republic.
