Mike Rowe Talks About Christianity, Makes Major Announcement About His Show

November 28, 2017Nov 28, 2017

Mike Rowe just announced some good news about his popular show "Somebody's Gotta Do It." On December 2, the show will for the first time be broadcasted on Trinity Broadcasting Network, according to the Daily Caller

Originally, Rowe's show aired on CNN, but will now be modified and integrated into the regular lineup on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, filling the 9 pm slot following "Huckabee." Rowe is thrilled about the new opportunity for his popular television show and released a statement expressing his enthusiasm. 

“I’m really excited that ‘Somebody’s Gotta Do It’ has found a new home. The people we feature on this show are exactly what the country needs right now–real and regular folks with a genuine sense of humor, a genuine passion for what they do, and a genuine desire to share that passion with America,” Rowe said, according to the Daily Caller.

He added, “There’s just no way you can watch this show and not feel better about the species, and I know the TBN audience will love the people who ‘gotta do it.’”

Despite his show appearing on a religious channel, Rowe hinted on his website that he isn't a particularly religious person himself. Rowe believes that his television show pays homage to hard-working Americans who live their lives with passion and kindness, which he says are traits that often appears in those who claim to be Christian. 

According to Rowe, "Like Dirty Jobs and Returning the Favor, Somebody’s Gotta Do It is an homage to hard-working Americans who live their lives with a blend of passion, humor, kindness, and curiosity. From what I’ve observed, these qualities often appear in people who claim to be Christians, as well as people who claim to be something else."

Furthermore, although the show will display moments of prayer and will have a clear religious theme sprinkled throughout it, Rowe will not be sharing his faith in this new adventure. Rather, Rowe claims he is "skeptical" of many religious claims, or so he claimed he was earlier this week on his website.

However, he is very happy to associate himself with a Christian broadcasting network and is thrilled at the opportunity to provide Christian audiences with a television show that they can love — "something with "less cussing, more praying, very little drinking, and more laughs than ever before." 

According to one website, Rowe was raised Christian and attended a Presbyterian Church in Baltimore. His faith is something that he says will remain "private."
