Discovery's 'American Chopper' canceled

Discovery Channel will chop no more forever.

American Chopper

Sad news for fans of the bickering Teutel boys -- Discovery has decided to draw their long-running documentary series, "American Chopper," to a close after ten years. The series has called both Discovery and TLC home, revolving around the Orange County Customs motorcycle shop and Teutel clan butting heads as they built awesome bikes for various clients ranging from Siemens (for whom they built the world's first all-electric chopper) to Will Smith (to help promote his "I, Robot" science-fiction film).

“After 10 years and 233 episodes of incredible, riveting reality television, American Chopper will be ending its run on Dec. 11,” said Eileen O’Neill, group president, Discovery and TLC Networks in a statement. “This series was one of the very first family-based reality programs on television. Special thanks to Pilgrim Studios for over a decade of great producing. The Teutuls have given us really innovative bike builds and real drama since 2002. We wish both Orange County Choppers and Paul Junior Designs the best and look forward to capping off this amazing run with our live special Chopper Live: The Revenge.”

Given that it has been a power player for the cable channel for so long, the series will get an appropriately high profile send-off. "Chopper Live: The Revenge" will air live from Las Vegas on December 10th and 11th, featuring special guest and fellow chopper entrepreneur Jesse James in the series' penultimate bike build-off.

Sad news. But they must make room for 70 new cooking shows and 75 variants of Big Brother.
