Filed under: TV NewsReality TV

That didn't take long! Good thing they wised and realized having a TV show is more profitable than a fishing boat!

Though the captains went through a bit of a legal battle with the Discovery network, Deadliest Catch stars Sig Hansen and Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand will be back to work on their popular show next week in Alaska. Discovery released a statement in regards to the matter, on behalf of the cast, saying

“We’re happy we worked everything out with Discovery. A deal’s a deal. We’re heading up to Dutch Harbor to start filming the new season of Deadliest Catch and hopefully it will be the best one yet.”

The Hillstrands added in their own statement in regards to their separate Discovery special:

“Everyone worked really hard on putting together Hillstranded and we’re looking forward to wrapping that up. It’s something new that we hope people will enjoy.”

Glad it all could be work out, boys! Thankfully, you didn't rock the boat hard enough that you all ended up with nothing!

Deadliest Catch Trio May Return To The Series

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

deadliest catch captains may return after settling discovery lawsuit

Although it's been announced that Capts. Sig Hansen, along with Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand will not be appearing on the seventh season of Deadliest Catch, but it's not a done deal.

The Hillstrand quit amidst a $3 million lawsuit filed by Discovery for allegedly not completing work on a planned spinoff special.

But since the death of Phil Harris, the show may not survive any more drastic casting changes - and the network knows it! It's rumored that the two sides are discussing a settlement so the trio can return to the show.

And they better hurry! The boats are scheduled to leave for Dutch Harbor, Alaska, by October 15th to take advantage of king crab season in the Bering Sea.

Only time will tell.

Deadliest Catch Stars Quit!

Filed under: TV NewsMTVLegal MattersReality TV

You know there's something wrong when THREE people quit on you at once!

Captains Jonathan & Andy Hillstrand, and Captain Sig Hansen have left Deadliest Catch.

The Hillstrands were sued by Discovery for $3 million earlier this month due to their alleged lack of participation in a planned spin-off special for Deadliest Catch, called Hillstranded.

Captain Hansen quit as a show of solidarity for his fellow captains. Here's what he had to say about it:

"I want people to know the captains stand together, and me and my brothers support them 100 percent."

Here is a statement from the Hillstrands and Hansen regarding their departure:

"We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in 'Deadliest Catch. It has been a fantastic ride, and we wish the best to all of the amazing and supportive 'Catch' fans we have met over the years."

Here's what the Hillstrands' lawyer, Jeff Cohen, had to say about the Captains' exit:

"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for the captains. I think MaryAnne from Minnesota put it best when she wrote to us: 'The show was meant to shed light on a profession these men so valiantly and tirelessly do season after season, not bankrupt them and take away their livelihood.'"

Not the smartest move, Discovery! Do U think MTV would file a lawsuit against the cast of Jersey Shore? Would CBS go head-to-head with the Big Bang stars?

Not smart AT all!

Deadliest Catch Stars Sued By The Network

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

ddcatchwenn5456206.jpg

Has Jon Gosselin taught you all nothing! You never mess with the network when you are a one-trick pony reality star! They OWN you!!!

The Discovery Network is going after Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand, stars of The Deadliest Catch, for $3 million in damages after the pair up and decided not to live up to their contracts.

According to the lawsuit, the network was in the middle of producing a one-time special called Hillstranded when the men abruptly pulled out of the project. Seems that the footage was already shot and edited, but now required the much needed commentary from Andy and Jon to tie the whole special together. When the Discovery people reached out to them to set up a time and place for their interviews, all they received in response was an email from their lawyer letting the producers know that they shouldn't bother trying to contact them.

The suits at Discovery say that the men are in breach of their contract and have cost the network significant ratings and substantial losses. Now, they are fighting back!

And, as we all well know from the last time, the Discovery network tends to win these types of things!

Deadliest Catch Crushes The Hills Finale In The Ratings

Filed under: TV NewsReality TV

readys.jpg

Tuesday night viewers were tuning in to the Discovery Channel series Deadliest Catch rather than watching the highly anticipated Hills series finale.

Deadliest Catch drew in a record 8.55 million viewers, shattering its all-time record of 7.9 million, while The Hills drew in a mere - by comparison - 3.0 million viewers.

It seems people were over the latest dramz going down on The Hills and more interested in Captain Phil Harris' final episode.

What were U watching?

It's a show about risking your life…to go fishing.

Who is watching this??? (We're looking at you, Alaska!)

The Discovery Channel should be pleased to hear that Tuesday's Deadliest Catch brought in 5.3 million viewers. That's a series high for the show and the largest adults 18-49 audience for a series in the network's history.

So what did they catch that 5 million of you tuned in to watch? Unless it was a mermaid, we don't see what the effing big deal is!
