It was moved to Thursdays.

But my bet is that it will be canceled in no time at all.

I think you're probably right.

Only read the first 3 pages of discussion.  Seems to be pretty mixed.
I've only seen the show once when I was in the US.  Liked it but I can see what your saying.  Can't get it here in Canada yet. 
This is what I find wrong with Discovery/TLC/US TV in general - too many shows about guys just doing their jobs.  The first couple were OK, the rest are just spin-offs of the same genre.  After "This Old House" and "Cops", the rest are just rip-offs.

I did have a DFH 60 minute IPA that a friend gave me and it was quite good.  Pretty typical US IPA in my opinion (I'm not a huge fan but they're alright in moderation - too much use of Cascade hops in many that I've had IMO - too much grapefruit aftertaste for me).

Anyway, I will tune in again next time I'm in the States and it's on.  Even if it is an hour long commercial for DFH, it's about beer and what could be better than that?

I have had Sierra Nevada PA.  Very good. 
I'm not trying to slam anyone for using Cascade or anything else, just my tastes.  If you like to chew Cascade hops - go for it.  Not sure I'd be into chewing on hops period, regardless of what variety but hey, to each his own.

I thought it was a bore.  And yes, Sam seems a bit full of himself.  But to give you some perspective, probably not as much as Jamil Z.

Do you know Jamil??
I met him at the GABF and he was anything but full of himself.  He was down to earth and very cool. 

As for the OP, It's cool that the show can be watched and enjoyed by non-brewers.  I personally think there's an S-Load of acting and marketing going on there.  There's no way he runs that business in such a warm and fuzzy way in real life.  I also find it hard to believe that he drives that truck as his daily vehicle when noone's looking.

Has the show been canceled?  Or not canceled?

There are 2 more shows that will air.  One has had more voice overs done, and might be complete.  The other (with Mario Batalli at Eataly?) is still having some work done.  This was from posts on another board.

Will it be picked up for another season is the big question.
