Spike TV insists to PopcornBiz that's not the case.
"Jesse James Is a Dead Man," was actually dead long ago. The bit about it being axed due to Jesse-Gate is just tabloid editors writing sexy headlines.
"We canceled the show and our relationship with Jesse James last August right after the season ended," says a Spike pr person. "That's the real skinny."
"The series premiered strong, but ratings for the rest of the season didn't hold," says the PR person.
