Hoarders Has Been Cancelled By A&E

First Intervention was cancelled, a few months ago – when we needed it the most – Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes etc.

Now A&E has cancelled Hoarders. Hoarders aired 71 episodes, and its sixth season ended this past February; A&E has no plans to air a wrap-up or finale special or anything, a network rep confirmed.

May be all their money is going towards their ratings monster Duck Dynasty. But Intervention and Hoarders were great shows helping the mentally ill and those with severe psychological problems.

Networks never say why they cancel a show but it’s almost always for financial reasons of some sort. Often a series gets older and more expensive and a network gambles that it can get about the same ratings from a newer, less expensive series.

Above are some of the Doctors and specialist that helped countless people with their compulsive disorder.
Each 60-minute episode profiled one or two interventions. During most of the first season, the hoarder worked with either a psychiatrist/psychologist, a professional organizer, or an “extreme cleaning specialist”; each of whom specialized in some aspect involving the treatment of obsessive/compulsive disorders, anxiety disorders, and/or hoarding. A crew of professional cleaners (usually a local franchise of the series’ major corporate sponsor) performed actual cleanups.

An A&E publicist confirmed that “Hoarders” has been canceled and will not be back on A&E.

Matt Paxton one of the specialist featured on Hoarders announced he will join forces with disaster restoration experts ServiceMaster Restore® to expand the reach of specialized hoarding and estate cleaning services on a broader national scale. So at least people will still be getting the help they need albeit without the aid of A&E.

via Press Release:
Matt Paxton, “Hoarders” television personality and author of “The Secret Lives of Hoarders,” today announced he will join forces with disaster restoration experts ServiceMaster Restore® to expand the reach of specialized hoarding and estate cleaning services on a broader national scale.

Paxton has appeared as a featured organizer on the nationally televised program “Hoarders”, which features homeowners whose mental disorder is marked by an obsessive need to collect things, even if the items are worthless, hazardous or unsanitary. He sought the national collaboration with ServiceMaster Restore when he recognized that he could not adequately service the growing need for hoarding and estate clean up work.

“I simply could not help enough people with my small team,” he said. “After looking at several large service providers, I was attracted to the ServiceMaster corporate values, national footprint and business model,” said Paxton. At the same time, ServiceMaster was looking for an opportunity to create a service extension in the hoarding market.
