Don't expect any more "Ted Nugent's Gun Country" on Discovery. The special, which aired in October 2012, was a one-time special and will not return for new episodes, according to a spokesperon for the network. Despite what Nugent may have told the press, this is it for "Ted Nugent's Gun Country."

"They want to do it as a regular feature," Nugent said of his Discovery special. "We expect that there will be at least a dozen shows a year."

The reality special followed Nugent -- and his guns -- as he lived life, hunting and shooting to have fun.

"Our new show ... simply celebrates and promotes the self-evident truth that 99.99 percent of American gun-owning families use our guns on a regular basis for all the right reasons," Nugent wrote in his "Washington Times" column in October. "The same 99.99 percent of Americans with guns will never use our guns in a crime or for any negative misuse whatsoever."

Since the tragic shooting at Sandy Brook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, many networks have been evaluating their programming and making changes: Syfy pulled an episode of "Haven" that featured school violence and will air it in January; TLC rescheduled their new reality special "Best Funeral Ever" for an early 2013 airdate; Fox pulled episodes of "Family Guy" and "American Dad" from its Sunday, December 16 lineup and scheduled them for a later date; and "American Guns" and "Sons of Guns" reruns are also not airing on Discovery and "American Guns" will not return for new episodes.

"'American Guns' concluded earlier this year," a spokesperson for Discovery told The Huffington Post via email. "Discovery Channel chose not to renew the series and has no plans to air repeats of the show."
