'Canadian Pickers' Canceled by Shaw Media
TORONTO – Canadian TV is about to get less junky.
Canadian broadcaster Shaw Media is to cancel the junkyard scavenger reality show Canadian Pickers on its History Canada channel after a four season, 52-episode run.
The Cineflix Productions series, a local adaptation of the Canadian indie's popular American Pickers series stateside, will end after the last four episodes of the fourth season air from Dec. 2 through Dec. 23 and a final all-day marathon.
Canadian Pickers sees hosts Sheldon Smithens and Scott Cozens, wearing trademark cowboy hats and prairie jackets, travel the country and search for rare antiques and collectibles in flea markets and antique shops.
American Pickers on the U.S. History channel features pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz traveling the back roads of the U.S. in search of rusty gold.
