Fox411 reports that the Discovery Channel is canceling “American Guns,” its reality show about a family of gun makers in Colorado.
The show, which has been out of production, had been gaining popularity with a 50 percent ratings increase for its second season premiere.
Although the Discovery rep didn’t link the show’s cancelation to the recent shooting in Newtown, Conn., Fox notes that criticism flooded into the show’s Facebook page in the aftermath of the massacre, and notes that many in Hollywood are beginning to question the role entertainment plays in promoting gun culture.
Similarly, the AP reported that this weekend’s premieres for Tom Cruise’s new action movie, “Jack Reacher,” and the comedy “Parental Guidance” were postponed out of respect for the Sandy Hook victims, and Fox pulled new episodes of “Family Guy” and “American Dad” “to avoid potentially sensitive content.”

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
