First we get Osama bin Laden, now Larry the Cable Guy’s TV show is being renewed. Is this a great day to be an American, or what?

Freshman series Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy will get a second season on History, sources say. The show has Larry crisscrossing the country seeking out the people, places and things that make this country unique. Only in America debuted in February, has averaged a hearty 2.6 million viewers per episode on Tuesday nights, boosting its time period by 86 percent.

At its upfront presentation, History also announced a new show: Full Metal Jousting, which re-creates full-contact medieval jousting tournaments, and announced renewals for fan favorites like Ax Men, Ice Road Truckers, IRT: Deadliest Roads, Swamp People and Top Gear.

    I remember the days when the History Channel aired shows about actual history. I miss those days.

      Jennifer, have you actually watched this show? He may be a comedian, but he brings a lot of awareness to a lot of things that go on in this great country of ours. It is telling a little history about interesting places here in the USA. People need to look for the good things in “THIS” country to see/visit, and not always go to another country. We need to support “this” country and the history it has to tell.

      • The Truth

        Jennifer is right. Even though this show does a good job of showing America’s little known gems the History Channel has lost its way to reality tv. Ice Road Truckers and all the shows that spawned from it are good ideas for miniseries, but are not good for multiple seasons. History Channel needs to get back to having shows about history.

      Same crap happening with the Travel channel. Actual and informative travel shows being replaced with reality and gluttonous food shows. By hey, that’s what America wants. It’s happening with all networks. All original branding goes out the window for mindless reality trash.

      Jennifer, sadly the days of the history channel showing anything of real historical content are long past and have been for the last four or five years. It is probably now one of the most un-watchable channels on cable. My view is that is appeals to the same viewers who watch American Idol and Hoarders.

    Larry the Cable Guy has a show on the history channel? I totally didn’t know that. I can’t stand him. He’s a very unfunny guy. I haven’t seen the show though, so I have no idea how good the show is. I probably won’t watch it. It just doesn’t seem like the type of thing I’d enjoy watching.

    Larry the Cable Guy’s show is GREAT! It present’s history in a way that everyone, from history wizards, to the Average Joe, to Sally Mae and her Brosband (Brother and Husband) Billy Bob, can understand and relate to. Yes he is a comedian, but that does not mean that he cannot have a show on history. I agree that history has moved away from its original format, but its still history and still the most informative non news channel on tv! KEEP IT UP LARRY!

    Personally I LOVE the show, it is entertaining, I have always enjoyed Larry the Cable guy tho as well. His laugh is contagious. To me History is boring, my husband enjoys watching shows on the History channel (the boring ones) so when Only in America came out I was happy .. it’s funny and you learn something also. I don’t care about all the negative reviews, I love the show, and I cannot wait for the second season to come out!
