TLC Cancels 'All-American Muslim' Reality TV Show After Only One Season



NEW YORK (The Blaze/AP) --Back in July The Blaze reported that TLC network was launching a new reality television show about Muslim families living in the Detroit area. Now, that series is ending after just one season.

TLC spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg said Wednesday the "All-American Muslim" series won't be back. Its eight-episode run ended in January.

"All-American Muslim" attracted attention when a conservative Christian group called for an advertiser boycott. At least two companies announced they were pulling ads. TLC says the protest caused a backlash in which new advertisers signed on.

One episode focused almost entirely on the conflicted feelings the show's participants had about marking anniversaries of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when Muslim extremists destroyed the World Trade Center and killed thousands of people.

After a strong start to the series, ratings faded. The series was considered a long shot to return.

Below is the official trailer for All American Muslim:
