american chopperThe 2nd run of the series American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior will air its final two episodes tonight on the Discovery Channel.

The hit series American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior already ran its debut course on TLC and has been involved in a 2nd broadcast on Discovery Channel. The show which has followed Paul Teutul Sr. (Orange County Choppers) and his feud with his son, Paul Teutul Jr. (Paul Jr. Designs) will air the final two episodes tonight on the Discovery Channel.

We covered the big move from TLC back to Discovery a while ago [read here] and it looks like American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior will finish its 5 week re-broadcast tonight. With the final two episodes airing tonight, what does that mean for the Teutuls and the future of the show?

Judging by the ratings of the American Chopper spin-off, I am not quite sure it will be coming back. I know a lot of fans lost interest when it went from being a family business to a family rivalry. The only way Discovery could revive the show is if Mikey Teutul, Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. make amends and work together again. If you have been following the show or any of the recent news, I doubt that is going to happen.

Hell, Paul Teutul Sr. didn’t even show up to his own son’s (Paul Teutul Jr.) wedding. I feel that tonight will be the last we see of the Teutul gang on their reality show, American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior.

Of course if we receive any information on Orange County Choppers or Paul Jr. Designs and the Teutul family we will let you all know.

Be sure to catch the final two episodes of American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior tonight at 9|8c on Discovery Channel.

  1. Does Jr or Sr. read these posts? If so here’s a message from the backset looking in. Its’ clear beyond mis-alignment caused by father-son rilvery there is two glaring issues that by themselves puts tremenous pressure on this relationship. 1) Lack of dependable effort from Jr. and 2) Lack of respect from Sr. Both of these get mixed together creating a violative match of wills. I see Junior giving great creative work, and teaming with Vinnie crank out great bikes, yet there are times when he just doesn’t show up consistently, takes long breaks etc., and face it not always in protest against his father.. this behavior would cause him to be fired in most jobs. He tries I think in his own mind to overcome this by being creatively engaged when his is there, but overall this on/off behavior, lies at most of Sr. anguish against this son. Senior has a singular view that his “shop” produces great bikes. That’s now really true. We’ve seen since Jr., been gone the soul of the bikes great unique thematic creations gone way down. Not only the do the machinists and fabrecators do not have the creative thought process they have a clear wrong appreciation for it. Little has been done by the show to clearly point out these two fractures. As a result the Discovery Channel producers are about to lose one of the greatest motorcycle reality shows ever aired. Too bad for all concerned.

  2. I don’t care for all of the drama between the two of them. Personally, I’d rather watch Jr. build bikes. Sr. doesn’t seem to want to hear the truth and those around him seem to only tell him what he wants to hear (Odie after he’s fired by Jr.) He wants to blame Jr. for everything that’s going wrong, from his dysfunctional relationship with Mikey to his financial woes. Grow up Sr. Take ownership of your short-commings. Stop the foolishness of lawsuits against your own son. Stop the drive-bys of Jr’s shop. You’re not doing yourself any favors by acting like a child. At this point, you even make Mikey look mature.

  3. Sr. lovers always remind us that he was a top notch business man but decline to mention all the times he went bankrupt and into forclosure. I’ve never seen a father that was insanely jealous of a son that made him what he is. The only thing Sr. brings to the table is his mustache and steroid built arms
