It's an Explosive Finale as Northwestern Gets Her Revenge on 'Deadliest Catch' (VIDEO)

'Deadliest Catch' season finaleAfter a successful season on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tue., 9PM ET on Discovery), there was only one order of business left for Captain Sig Hansen of the Northwestern. He remembers the Chinese lanterns that freaked him out earlier at the hands of the Time Bandit's crew.

So he lures them closer by telling Time Bandit Captain Andy Hillstrand, "We got a little shake in the back there. I don't know what it is."

When the Time Bandit swings around to take a look, Captain Sig and his crew launch a barrage of fireworks at them. The Time Bandit fires back, and the two wind up putting on one of the more impressive fireworks displays we've seen on television. Many cities' July 4th celebrations would be put to shame by the firepower on display.

Captain Keith Gets Violent With a Cameraman on 'Deadliest Catch' (VIDEO)

Captain Keith Colburn loses his temper with camerman Brad Carper on 'Deadliest Catch'The drama on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tuesdays, 9PM on the Discovery Channel) usually comes from the pressure the captains and crew are under to make a good haul and pay their bills, not the pressure of filming a reality show. But things got out of control on Tuesday's episode, when Captain Keith Colburn exploded at a cameraman, pushing him against a wall and screaming in his face.

Colburn was stressed, sitting at the helm ranting about running a three million dollar business that was two million dollars in debt. "I don't know why I [bleep!] deal with it," he said. That's when Colburn picked up the phone, snapped at cameraman Brad Carper, who wanted to talk to the producer, and then went after Carper, yelling at him about how he sleeps too much and never makes him coffee.

Captain Keith Lays It on the Line for Greenhorn Danny on 'Deadliest Catch' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 6th 2011 6:16AM
'Deadliest Catch'The dangerous work the men do on 'Deadliest Catch' (Tue., 9PM ET on Discovery) makes it even more important that the entire crew is on the same page, focused and ready to tackle the job at hand. As it's such a team effort, one person not on their A-game can be costly. It's right there in the title how serious this is, after all.

So we understand completely when Capt. Keith Colburn called out Danny, one of his crew, in front of everyone else. This is too dangerous and too serious to allow one disgruntled crew member ruin a nearly $1 million haul.

When Danny came to confront him about the public berating, Keith first shut Danny up and then laid it on the line.

'Deadliest Catch' Producer Opens Up About Deaths and Next Season

by Ryan McKee, posted Jul 28th 2010 11:45AM
By all accounts, the sixth season of the Discovery Channel's 'Deadliest Catch,' which follows the dangerous adventures of a group of crab fishermen in Alaska, was its most dramatic -- and most-watched -- season yet, in large part due to the sudden death of breakout star Capt. Phil Harris. Thom Beers, the show's executive producer, channeled the late Harris when he spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the grave reality of the stars' chosen profession.

"Every year five or six guys die. That's the reality. This wasn't the only heavy year. Every year is heavy," he said.

The beloved Harris died earlier this year of a massive stroke. 'Deadliest Catch' filmed his final days, giving the series more mortality than it had achieved in previous seasons.

"We carry [Harris'] loss with us, but we still have to go back to work," Beers said. Harris would no doubt agree with the comment.

Top Five Death-Wish Shows on the Discovery Channel

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 10th 2010 9:00AM
Deadliest Catch, crab fishingDiscovery Channel unveiled its lineup for the 2010-11 season this week, and it looks like more stellar programming for the real-life stories network. You can read more about it here, but two that caught my eye are 'Engineering the Impossible,' where a team of specialists search for clues about how some of the world's most fantastic structures were built; and 'The Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero.' a documentary executive produced by Steven Spielberg.

This made me think about some of my favorite shows on the Discovery Channel, and I realized that they usually involve people in ridiculously disgusting or deadly situations. I think of these as the "real" reality shows, rather than the manufactured reality shows like 'Survivor' and 'The Amazing Race.'

Ok, we'll take Bear Grylls out of the equation, because, clearly, there's no need for him to be dropped into the wilderness and have to drink his own pee. But the others on my list are just awesome people doing death-wish jobs no one else wants to do. Follow me after the jump to see who made my top five list.

'Deadliest Catch's' Sig Hansen Insults His Older Female Fans (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Apr 9th 2010 6:54PM
Man overboard! The 'Deadliest Catch's' Sig Hansen didn't score any points with Bonnie Hunt-- or the audience -- on Friday's edition of 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Hunt likes the show -- "Why are we so hooked on this show? I love this show" she said. But the captain wasn't sure about his show's popularity. It's a "guy's soap opera," he said. Then he added, "We have a lot of fans who are women in their later years." Offended, Hunt said "Well I watch it all the time." Sensing he had put his foot in his mouth, the captain put it in even deeper. "You're in the younger crowd. So you're more after my brother Edgar," he said. "I get the older ones -- the ones that gravity has affected." Those were fighting words for Hunt.

New 'Deadliest Catch' Promo Features Captain Phil Harris

by Chris Jordan, posted Apr 6th 2010 6:00PM
The upcoming sixth season of 'Deadliest Catch,' which premieres Tue., April 13 at 9PM ET, looks to be a bittersweet affair.

A new promo features deceased Captain Phil Harris and close-ups of the rugged features of crew members from the crabbing boats of Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The spot is filmed in sepia tones while Eddie Vedder's reflective ballad, 'Rise,' plays in the background.

This will be the last season with Harris. The tough-as-nails fishing boat captain of Cornelia Marie suffered a massive stroke Jan. 29 while in port off-loading at St. Paul Island, Alaska and died.

New TV on DVD for March 30: 'Deadliest Catch,' 'Real Housewives'

by Scott Harris, posted Mar 30th 2010 1:45PM
If there's one thing the American television viewer has learned about the entertainment industry it's that Hollywood's primary goal is to always keep it real. Sure, you could accuse actors of employing some artifice in their line of work, but for the most part, television is in the midst of an unparalleled era of keeping it real as shows like 'The Real World' and 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' continue to prove by having the word real right in the title. And when it comes to TV on DVD, the realest month of all is apparently March.

Of course, the argument could be made that this week's batch of DVD releases is actually somewhat weak due to a lack of high profile scripted shows, but we like to take more of a "glass half real" viewpoint on things. That's why were so so excited to see the latest issue from the most real reality show of all, 'Deadliest Catch,' which lands 'Deadliest Catch: Season Five' just in time to get you ready for the premiere of season six on April 13.

Kathy Griffin's She'll Cut A Bitch on DVD

by Nick Zaino, posted Jan 11th 2010 7:54PM
Kathy Griffin She'll Cut A BitchThe best thing about making fun of the daily failings of celebrities and other public figures, as is Kathy Griffin's bread and butter, is that you can write a new act every few weeks. Griffin's Bravo special, She'll Cut A Bitch, originally aired in April of 2009, and comes out uncensored with a few extra routines (about 12 minutes total) on DVD January 12.

She also released a CD last November, called Suckin' It For the Holidays, which had almost nothing to do with the holidays. There was very little overlap between the special and CD. Griffin has released a steady stream of specials for the past several years, in addition to shooting her reality show, My Life on the D-List.

Best TV of the '00s: Reality Series

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 31st 2009 2:02PM
top chef judges
More of our best of the decade coverage, which started on Tuesday. You can read the other posts at the link above. Here, we talk about a major category that came of age in the aughts: Reality shows.

While I would never call myself a reality TV junkie, it really bugs me when people make blanket statements like, "I hate reality TV," or, "Reality TV is the bane of my existence." The genre has grown so much in the past decade that it has become just like scripted television, in that there's good and there's bad. Even though we're splitting this up into two lists, "Reality," and "Trashy Reality," you won't see a single show that starts with, "Who Wants to Marry" on either list.

This list is dedicated not to the guilty pleasures, but to the shows that you wouldn't be embarrassed for your neighbors to know you watch: the classy reality, if you will. So without further ado, here is TV Squad's list of the best reality shows of the decade.
