What Happened To All The Motorhead Shows?

American Chopper ... American Hot Rod ... Overhaulin' ... Rides ... Biker Buildoff ... all the iterations of Jesse James' shows ... and more ...

Where'd they go?

A few years ago, we were inundated with all kinds of gearhead shows on Discovery, History, and TLC. Now, they are all gone.

American Chopper died off because the family fell apart - but it was going to end soon anyway.

American Hot Rod's Boyd Coddington passed away - but the series had already ended by then.

All the other ones ???

I guess the public just got tired of them, ratings died, the 'stars' got tired of doing them, production costs went up ... probably a combination of all of those. Being a Hot Rodder at heart, I miss that kind of programming.
