Los Angeles, July 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The season finale of the show Deadly Catch will be aired on Tuesday night. This season’s show was the first that didn’t feature Captain Phil Harris. He died last year and his absence from the show was very evident. The show’s ratings have gone down dramatically. According to Nielsen, the show is averaging about 4.2 million viewers each episode. When the number is compared to the previous seasons which featured Captain Harris, the show has lost about 21 percent of its viewership.

The future of the show has been thrown in the balance. In the final episode, the official promotion of the show says fans should hold on for “what the future holds.”

Capt. Keith Colburn got into a fight with one of the cameramen of the show during the episode which was shown last week. According to The Washington Post, the scuffle began when the cameraman tried to use the phone in the ship. He wanted to get in touch with the producer of the show.

That reportedly got on the nerves of Captain Colburn who started shoving the cameraman. A scuffle ensued between the two of them.

Captain Colburn was the winner of this season’s Saltiest Vocabulary Competition.
