TLC Puts the Brakes on 'American Chopper'

The family reality show that would never say die just died.

TLC has officially canceled the long-running 'American Chopper', which has been on the air since 2003 when it first found footing on the Discovery Channel. The show's final episode will air on Thursday.

Say what you will about the series running past its prime, but both the show and its subjects have been through a hell of a lot of mayhem. The shop played host to a ton of thick, rich drama, capping with the final season in which Paul Jr. leaves the shop on very heated terms and eventually led to Paul Sr. suing his son for a $1 million in back company stock.

If you're curious to know how things will wrap up, check out a preview of the final episode at Turbo.Discovery.com.

TLC has a new docu-series

Must Love KidsTLC has a new docu-series (that's a fancy name for "reality show") called Must Love Kids. On this show, TLC will follow three moms as they enter the daunting world of dating as a single mother. The three mothers who currently balance their careers and raising their children will step out of their comfort zones to date and maybe even find a lifelong partner.

Not so sure about this show. According to the press release, "With an estimated 10.4 million single mothers in the U.S., these three single moms will undoubtedly inspire others to take the initiative and focus on their own happiness." I don't like the assumption here. All single moms are miserable and don't focus on their own happiness? Therefore, all single moms need to learn to be happy so they can secure another mate? Maybe I'm being too harsh though. I generally like TLC's programming. (I changed dinner reservations once while vacationing in Hawaii with my husband because American Choppers wasn't over yet.)

What do you think? Would you watch this show?

Must Love Kids premieres July 15th at 9:00 p.m. ET / PT on TLC.
