Last week, "Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe appeared on "Glenn Beck" on Fox News to talk about his foundation, which works with kids who are interested in going into a trade of some kind rather than going to a four-year college.
Many of Rowe's Facebook fans were not fans of his appearance on the show, but this comment by Sharon Walsh -- "Mike - How could you associate with such a horrible and psychotic person that is Glen Beck? I wouldn't accept a dime off that hateful, nasty racist. Very disappointed to see this post." -- sparked Rowe to respond with a letter on Facebook.
Well, hi there, Shannon - and a pleasant good morning to you too!
If you want a detailed answer to your question, please take a moment to read my earlier reply to Bob Reidel, another crestfallen soul who couldn't reconcile my association with a TV host that he personally despised. »
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including True Blood, Pretty Little Lairs, Teen Wolf, Drunk History and more!
1 | So that vertical runway on America Next’s Top Model… How was that not a big enough liability to be vetoed at the pitch stage? And is the guys and girls edition making you miss Bravo’s Make Me A Supermodel something fierce?

"Deadliest Catch" narrator Mike Rowe and F/V Time Bandit Capt. Andy Hillstrand (right)-- co-skipper with brother Johnathan (left) -- have been involved in a little back-and-forth about Rowe's detailed knowledge of the show's boats and crews that started on Twitter and has now evolved into dueling videos.
First, Rowe posted this video answering Hillstrand's assertion that he "doesn't know s****" (language Nsfw).
Then Hillstrand responded with this video enumerating Rowe's errors.
Now Rowe has retorted with this video, in which he explains the source of his confusion and then body-slams Hillstrand (metaphorically, of course) with a smile on his face -- and a nod to the widespread impression that "Deadliest" is a floating soap opera (not to mention a "numerical Rubik's Cube").
Where will it end? Knowing the penchant for fireworks aboard the Time Bandit, anything could happen. »
Since the beginning, former "Dirty Jobs" star Mike Rowe has narrated Discovery's crab-fishing docu-series "Deadliest Catch," airing Tuesdays. In reading narration week after week, he's learned a few facts about the boats out on Alaska's Bering Sea.
But, it seems Rowe doesn't know quite enough to please Andy Hillstrand, the co-captain (with brother Johnathan) of the F/V Time Bandit -- and a little Twitter dust-up ensued between @mikeroweworks and @capt_andy.
Rowe fired back at Hillstrand's assertion, made on Twitter in response to a fan's comment, that he "doesn't know s***," with this video. (Nsfw language, as you might expect.)
On his Facebook page, Rowe replied to Hillstrand with "Well played, Captain. Well played. Please stand »
Via his Facebook page, the former "Dirty Jobs" host, who has done double duty as the narrator of Discovery's crab-fishing reality juggernaut since its earliest days, decided to give his own voiceover commentary a tweak.
"Last week on 'Deadliest Catch,' some of you will recall that Zack Larson on the Cape Caution was pretty well lambasted by the narration. Frankly, I'm sympathetic, and want to make good on my offer to present a different view of what might have been broadcast. Nothing about the original scene has been altered but the narration.
Tell me if you think it makes a difference ... 'Alternate Catch: Zack Larson »
Discovery Channel is giving viewers an inside look at what is being touted as one of the "greatest deep-sea treasure quests of all time" in a new series called Silver Rush. The three-part series, narrated by Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs), follows the deep-sea recovery team Odyssey Marine Exploration as it recovered a record-breaking 48 tons of silver bullion from the World War II shipwreck SS Gairsoppa -- making it the deepest and heaviest cargo recovery in history -- this past summer.
