Hank was an ordinary person working a blue collar job and they cancelled it? Ridiculous! Never nothing racist on it either well, from what I remember...

Now where will I hear propane jokes and propane related accessory jokes?

I hear they are replacing it with an new show about a family from Chicago where the Dad has big purple lips and the wife is a militant bitch. It's called, "Who Wants to be a Socialist Dick?"

I'm sure it just lost ratings. That happens to every show sooner or later. It's not some anti-Hank conspiracy.

Agreed the simpsons either need to be completely re-vamped get rid of all but the voice actors, and then maybe new life could be brought back into the show.

ahh man thats too bad....."king of the hill" may not be what it once was but its still good,at least as good as the last several seasons of "the simpsons" and "the simpsons" are still around......"king of the hill" is as good as lots of crap fox has or what other networks have for that matter.

well all is not lost.....it will always be in reruns somewhere and like they did with "family guy" fox may see the error of their ways and bring it back......

what will chuck mangione do now?

King has been teetering on cancellation for a while. It is a shame. It's one of the truly funny shows on TV.

As for The Simpsons, I still like the show. And even though the ratings for it aren't what they were, it's still a cash cow for FOX. Until it loses it's cultural reference it'll still be around.

San Antonio... A city built on public money:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Antonio,_Tex...
San Antonio has a diversified economy with four primary focuses: financial services, health care, national defense, and tourism.
1)financial services - can you say BAILOUT?
2)health care - where do our medicaid dollars go?
3)national defense - our tax dollars

Curtis, you live in a glass city built on public money. Don't throw stones...

hank hill is one, no, hank hill is the most upstanding american citizen in this country.
hank's got standards, ethics, pride. he is the epicenter of what all americans should admire to be like. a family man first and he loves propane. not one ill speck in his body. every show that was aired has a message to tell the difference in right vs. wrong. hank always does the right thing. his love for bobby show the diversity that we face each day, whether we choose the right choice is up to us. his neighbor Kon is always trying to throw mud in hanks face but still he did the right thing. his close friendship to dale shows us that he is flexible and patient. never once did hank tell dale about dales wife infidelity and his illegitimate child.
if hank ever faultered he has the best backup any man could ever want, peggy is the rock of gilbralter.
hank has values that we wont find in ourselves but strive to be.
hank got his start from those two hell'ens, beavis and buthead...he taught them a leasson or two before he got his own show.
always a story with a positive message.
we will miss sue ellen, boomhower and the rest of the many fine characters. we will not find anywhere else in the real world or t.v.
values that are to this standard.
