Deadliest Catch wins Best Adrenaline Junkie Docuseries in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

Deadliest CatchThis is one category that didn’t surprise us — all of that danger on the high and frozen seas has held audiences rapt for eight seasons now, and Season 8 of Deadliest Catch was the most hazardous yet (and still everyone survived).

Season 9 may bring various changes of command, but we know it’ll still be the most exciting fishing show ever.
