“Dirty Jobs” Superstar Mike Rowe Moves To New Network With New Show
Conservatives love Mike Rowe. He’s not afraid to do hard work, preaches common sense self-reliance, reminds people to stop making excuses, and understands America should have a small, unobtrusive government.
In short, he’s a die-hard conservative.
For quite some time now, Rowe has been a household name, and has become famous (or infamous if you’re a leftist) on social media for his no-holds-barred posts on Facebook.
It was announced that the “Dirty Jobs” superstar will be moving to a new network, and which one may come as a surprise.
Here’s the scuttlebutt from Mike Rowe.com:
Like Dirty Jobs and Returning the Favor, Somebody’s Gotta Do It is an homage to hard-working Americans who live their lives with a blend of passion, humor, kindness, and curiosity. From what I’ve observed, these qualities often appear in people who claim to be Christians, as well as people who claim to be something else. But because I’m fundamentally skeptical of claims, and because faith is an impossible thing to film (or prove) – I’m less concerned with what people say they believe, and more concerned with what they actually do about it. That’s why Somebody’s Gotta Do It, is not called Somebody’s Gotta Believe It. And that’s also why I keep my personal faith, personal.
Having said that, friends of this page should know that this not the same show that aired on CNN. For starters, we’ve cut the episodes down to half-hours. Instead of three segments over the course of sixty minutes, we now have one segment over the course of thirty. That makes a huge difference. It gives us more time to get to know the people we meet, and tell each story in a more relaxed pace. Hence, there’s more room for little moments, (or perhaps, not so little) – like saying grace at the kitchen table. We’ve also added new music, new narration, and a few new edits to address some network concerns with my predilection for naughty words and frosty beverages.
Bottom line, Somebody’s Gotta Do It is a family-friendly romp that celebrates regular people doing something they love. It’s not a “religious program,” but it does feature people who have answered a call of some kind, and I’ve tried to emphasize the wisdom of heeding that call in every episode. In truth, that’s what inspired the show in the first place, and I’m hopeful the TBN audience will like it. I’m also hopeful my friends on this page will give it a fresh look.
Good luck Mike! We’ll be sure to tune in!
You can catch the show at 9pm, ONLY on TBN!
