Default Spike TV PowerBlock no more?

A friend of mine in our local club called attention to this post on Pirate from Ian of Xtreme 4x4:
Quote:
"Xtreme 4x4 ends this year
Now before everyone gets upset these things happen. Spike TV has decided to no longer carry the Powerblock so Xtreme 4x4 ends this year. To everyone who has watched the show I want to say thank you for the support over the years.

For all the vendors who provided product in order for me to build the off road creations I also want to say thanks.

You can always watch the past shows online at powerblocknetwork.com

Now with the sad news that Xtreme 4x4 is off the air, I do have some good news. Starting December 28th I will have a new show called Xtreme Off Road, that will air on CBS Sports, and NBC Sports. Xtreme Off Road will be on Sunday Morning, but will also repeated during the week.

Although this means a lot of changes, trust me I will do my best to represent our "sport". The new website launched today at www.powernationtv.com so check it out, and as always post up here and I will answer any and all questions."

Way to ruin a good few hours of tv Executives!

I think it was getting old anyways. I would prefer seeing a show on more of an overlanding type platform with detailed "trail fixes". It will never happen though.

Edit: I will miss looking at Courtney Hansen though

Nice move. I no longer have a reason to watch that network.

A couple hours of product placement/advertising interspersed with some building.

Meh.

With any luck his new show will be able to focus more on tech as opposed to selling product.

Sounds like NBC Sports is making a push for automotive programming.
I noticed that Velocity is no longer airing Mecum's Auctions. Mecum's has switched to NBC Sports.

Looks like the same shows, with the same people, on a different network...even Courtney is there. The shows are a bit lame, but beat most of the Sunday morning crap.
