THV Told to Cease "Dirty Jobs" Series

This from a tipster: KTHV Dirty Jobs series cut short due to a cease and disist order from the Discovery Channel. THV had promoed Arkansas Dirty Jobs on their web site, and had a few taped and ready for air, but the Discovery Channel heard of the plan and cut it short fast. I am curious how Gannett would have approved this with the title "Dirty Jobs" owned by Discovery.

But it really gave Craig credibility as a real journalist. Watching him dig through the trash pile at the Waste Management landfill let me know how serious that both he and management are about the public's perception of Craig. He's a nice and funny guy but he has no place in an anchor position.

I sincerely hope this doesn't affect the career of Meredith Mitchell in any way!!! Meredith is the hottest thing going in the LR area and THV is incredibly lucky to have her!!!

I figure someone at 4 or 7 was more than happy to alert the Discovery Channel. What I'd like to know is...whose idea was this in the first place at THV? Craig's? The EP? Who?

They'll just repackage it under a different title.

Shows how stupid KTHV and Craig are. Maybe they will be in hot water instead of A Messy Milk Jug dive.

I'm a regular visitor to this site and likewise follow the LR media market regularly. However, I don't understand taking cheap shots at people's physical characteristics.
Reminds me a lot of my junior high days when such juvenile remarks were the norm.
This is a very interesting forum, but some on here need to grow up and conduct themselves as adults.
Give it a rest, folks.

Speaking of kooky people at THV, someone should tell Marcus Eubanks that strip clubs and porno shops in the city limits would be a 1st amendment issue, not a 2nd amendment issue.

Craig will do anything to make people think he is funny.

There again, not an original idea out of their promotion dept in years.

I really miss the KATV trading spaces rip-offs. Wonder why they stopped doing those?
