Shocking news bits that Alaskan Bush People is cancelled due to mom Ami Brown’s cancer are appearing after Discovery Channel stopped airing a new episode.
Will Alaskan Bush People return with new episodes or has mom Ami’s illness resulted in the cancellation of Discovery Channel’s reality television show? Fans of the Brown family have been worried how Ami’s cancer will affect the family’s ability to continue living in the Alaskan wilderness.
Here is the latest update on Alaskan Bush People and any rumors that the show has been cancelled because of Ami Brown’s cancer.
Why was there no new episode of Alaskan Bush People?
On its official Facebook webpage, Discovery Channel informs viewers that the show will return with new episodes in two weeks. ABP will return on Wednesday night at 9 p.m., August 9.
With the recent out-of-this world ratings for Alaskan Bush People, what would prompt Discovery Channel to discontinue the show for two weeks?
The simple answer is Shark Week.
Every year, at the end of July and beginning of August, Discovery Channel has a week-long programming block dedicated to sharks. Shark Week became a tradition on July 17, 1988, and its popularity outranks even the Brown family’s reality television show.
Quite obviously, Alaskan Bush People cannot compete with Shark Week.
When Discovery Channel first began Shark Week, it was intended to educate viewers about the many misconceptions that surround sharks. The program also aimed at supporting shark conservation efforts.
During the past years, Shark Week has somewhat changed its focus to being more captivating.
In contrast to Alaskan Bush People, Shark Week is being heavily promoted on social media, especially on Facebook and Twitter. Even before the program airs, millions of viewers are watching Shark Week’s videos online.
Since 2010, Shark Week has been the longest-running cable television programming event in history. More than 72 countries broadcast the program.
Alaskan Bush People began airing in May 2014. While the Brown family’s reality television show is also drawing in an international audience with millions of viewers, there is no comparison to Shark Week.
An update on the Brown’s reality television show
The first few new episodes of Season 7 of Alaskan Bush People have captivated many viewers because of the news that Ami Brown is fighting lung cancer. Since the filming of the show takes place months before the episodes are aired, any new information provided to viewers is actually outdated.
Here are our latest articles with real-time updated news on Alaskan Bush People:
Millions of viewers (like our students) enjoy Alaskan Bush People because it shows Alaska’s wondrous natural beauty and the close relationship and values of the Brown family members.
However, instead of providing viewers with current updates on Ami Brown’s illness or sharing 34-year-old Matt’s emotional struggles, Discovery Channel is filling the show’s time with old footage. Any information that the show does share about Ami Brown’s cancer is outdated by the time the episode airs.
The voices of long-time ABP fans expressing their disappointment are becoming louder and louder. Some fans are sharing that if Discovery Channel continues like this, it will indeed be the beginning of the end for the Brown family being on television. Many viewers share that it would not surprise them if Alaskan Bush People was suddenly cancelled.
