TLC not bringing 'All-American Muslim' back for second season
by Niraj Warikoo
All-American Muslim, the TLC reality-TV show based in Dearborn that ignited a national controversy, has been canceled and will not be back for a second season, the Free Press has learned.
Cast members said they were told by TLC the show didn't get high enough ratings to continue, but some said they are skeptical of that claim since the show's ratings were equal to those of many other shows.
The TV show followed the lives of five Dearborn families of Arab-American Muslims as they navigated their everyday lives negotiating their religious and American identities. From football players to police officers, the show gave a glimpse into the world of the Arab-American Muslim population of Dearborn, the highest concentration of that demographic in the U.S.
