Good news for fans of Mike Rowe (women everywhere). He is bringing a new show to CNN this fall called Somebody’s Gotta Do It. The show will be similar to his Dirty Jobs show in that he will be telling the stories of people who do strange jobs, but it won’t be the dirty or disgusting jobs his previous show focused on.
The theme behind Somebody’s Gotta Do It will be the same as Dirty Jobs. There are jobs out there that not everyone wants to do but someone steps up and gets them done. What I have always liked about Rowe is how he presents these people. He recognizes the value of their work and celebrates them on TV. We the viewer who for the most part work in clean offices, marvel at the work these people do day in and day out. Rather than looking down on people who do these jobs, Dirty Jobs helped shine a positive light on that work and I loved that show for it. Somebody’s Gotta Do It will continue that tradition. From the CNN press release:
“In each episode, Rowe visits unique individuals and joins them in their respective undertakings, paying tribute to innovators, do-gooders, entrepreneurs, collectors, fanatics–people who simply have to do it. This show is about passion, purpose, and occasionally, hobbies that get a little out of hand.”
Added to this, we will continue to get Rowe’s quick wit and good humor and for the ladies, I’m sure you’ll get to see a good looking guy doing hard work.
I like Mike Rowe a lot and I’m glad to hear that he will be back on TV. If you are a fan of his, I’m sure you are happy too. We will keep you updated on Somebody’s Gotta Do It when there is more news about when the show will be airing.
