Bear Grylls bites the big one! - Discovery Channel cancels Man vs Wild after seven seasons
Say it ain't so Sammy! In an apparent contract dispute, the Discovery Channel announced it was terminating the popular Man vs Wild TV show hosted by former British Special Forces soldier Bear Grylls. Man vs Wild helped to popularize bushcrafting and wilderness survival in both the UK and the United States, so the loss of this show is certainly a setback. Looks like it's down to Dual Survival now to carry on the torch of survival-oriented TV shows.
