In a move that caused millions to cheer, Ted Nugent has been fired and will no longer be promoting guns on The Discovery Channel. As it turns out "Ted Nugent's Gun Country" was not a popular program, only drawing 864,000 viewers by the Nielsen Ratings system. Although according to rawstory.com the low ratings were not the reason for the cancellation, but rather Nugent's close connection with the NRA. In the wake of Sandy Hook it is simply bad business for the network to promote guns which is why "American Guns" has also been cancelled.I hate to say it, but while 864,000 viewers is hardly a megahit, that isn't all that bad for a cable show. But its a repulsive 864,000 viewers no doubt.
