Not to mention his Ford commercials.

The dirtiest job he's done... :D

I completely disagree. Their Thanksgiving episode was excellent.

Probably making enough money from Ford as well; he'll do just fine w/o Dirty Jobs, I'm sure. :)

just because people watch something does not mean the show is not tired and worn out.

Most of the shows for the last 4 or 5 years have been "meh". When you start to resort to testing things you've seen in the movies, you've run your course. What's next, cartoons? Can Sharks really play the drums while standing on their tail fin? Can a dog throw a fox over an entire mountain range using a sheepherder's cane? Does vanishing cream really make you invisible?

The movie myths and alot of others are straight from the forum and were in high demand/request.
Just because you dont like movie myths does not indicate they were out of ideas.

I guess in this economy even dirty jobs aren't a sure thing

i remember Mike saying that he was given a choice by Discovery on whether to do Dirty Jobs and the Voice over for Deadliest Catch or be on-air on Deadliest Catch and of course he chose the former.

That was two years ago (or three).

Seen the Mythbusters crew in a Chevy commercial?

If that's the case, he made the right decision. There shouldn't be an on camera host for Deadliest Catch, just for After.

I thought it was the president of Discovery throwing his weight around, to show Mike who was boss. Wouldn't be surprised if that was the reason for the cancellation.
