'MYTHBUSTERS' LAUNCHES SEVENTH SEASON WEDNESDAYS AT 9PM BEGINNING APRIL 8 WITH TWO-HOUR DEMOLITION SPECIAL

(Silver Spring, Md.) -- Confirmed! The seventh season of MYTHBUSTERS, the popular Discovery Channel series that uses science to uncover the truth behind popular myths and legends is blasting into your living rooms on April 8 � and this year, their experiments range from the huge (sonic booms, anyone?) to the household (to double dip, or not to double dip?). Ten all-new high-definition episodes of MYTHBUSTERS will air in a row, Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT beginning April 8 with a two-hour Demolition Derby Special.

Hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage*, and build team members Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara*, the MYTHBUSTERS mix scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create their own signature style of explosive experimentation. Called �the best science show on television,� MYTHBUSTERS has aired on Discovery Channel since October 2003. To date, MYTHBUSTERS has tested nearly 600 myths with more than 1,900 experiments that included more than 650 explosions� and the destruction of 77 vehicles!

In the April 8 two-hour Demolition Derby Special episode, MYTHBUSTERS tackle four fables of automotive mayhem. Adam and Jamie test whether a key scene from an iconic motoring movie is fact or fake film physics � could moving the passengers to one side of a bus stop it from rolling in a sharp, fast right hand turn? Then, they revisit an early MYTHBUSTERS fan favorite involving two trucks and a compact car � and of course, rockets and high explosives. Meanwhile, Kari, Tory and Grant take on Hollywood as they look at four familiar chase scene clich�s to find out if they match up to reality, and then test a gravity race seen in a popular car commercial.

Additional seventh season premiere episodes will see the gang travel once again to Alaska to test local myths and anecdotes (airing April 15 as part of Discovery�s ALASKA WEEK); testing whether a banana peel is really an accident waiting to happen � and whether a double-dipped chip is actually germ warfare (April 22); testing experiments send in from fans via YouTube� -- including whether you can actually build a giant 7-foot diameter ball of Lego and roll it down a hill Indiana Jones-style (April 29), and more.

After six seasons, MYTHBUSTERS remains as popular as ever. In 2008, while in premieres, MYTHBUSTERS was the #1 program for Men 18-34 delivery in its timeslot (excluding sports and election coverage), and the series ranked as one of Discovery�s three highest-rated regular series in primetime for persons 18-49, persons 2+, and households.*

MYTHBUSTERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Beyond Productions. Dan Tapster is executive producer for Beyond Productions; Tracy Rudolph is supervising producer for Discovery Channel.

*New episodes only. Wednesday 9p-10p, 8/6/08-11/19/08.
