8TH SEASON OF "PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT!" PREMIERES THURSDAY, JUNE 10th at 10 PM ET/PT

America's favorite muckrackers return for an 8th season of PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT! on Thursday, June 10th at 10 PM ET/PT. The notoriously outspoken pair continue their crusade to expose the inherent hypocrisy (translation: bullshit) of many of the popular beliefs and sacred institutions in our culture.

Episode descriptions of all 10 episodes are below:

CHEERLEADERS (June 10th)

Cheerleading is as American as apple pie, but it is also responsible for 65% of all catastrophic female sport injuries. It is one of the most dangerous high school activities due to competitive coaches, fanatic parents, and a multi-million dollar industry concerned with its bottom line.

FAST FOOD (June 17th)

Hold on to your cheeseburger! Public Health agencies, food activists and special interest groups have launched an all-out war against fast food restaurants. Should the government really be spending our tax dollars to regulate what, where, and how we eat?

MARTIAL ARTS (June 24th)

Thanks to centuries of Eastern mystique, the martial arts may appear spiritual and special. But isn't karate just a bunch of guys in pajamas breaking boards with their feet? Can overweight housewives truly learn to defend themselves? And what is "chi" anyway?

TEEN SEX (July 1st)

Every generation worries about teen sex, but Penn and Teller believe today's parents are more hysterical than ever. The duo will look at the drastic measures adults are taking to combat the perceived dangers of teenage promiscuity, "sexting," and gay-straight alliances.

EASY MONEY (July 8th)

Everyone wants to get rich quick, but are multi-level marketing schemes really the answer? Penn & Teller reveal the truth about direct-sales companies that market everything from sausages to sex toys.

AREA 51 (July 15th)

Is the government hiding alien spaceships? Follow a team of UFO hunters on an overnight expedition in search of mysterious aircraft flying above a secret military facility known as Area 51. Buckle in�it's going to be a bumpy ride.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE (July 22nd)

Is America's criminal justice system weighed down with bad science, ineffective methods, incompetence and corruption? Penn & Teller set out to reveal that the only thing scarier than crime is America's war on crime.

OLD PEOPLE (July 29th)

According to Penn and Teller, America's seniors are stripped of their dignity thanks to ongoing stereotypes about old people. They investigate the widespread beliefs that old people can't drive, don't have sex, and smell bad.

SELF ESTEEM (August 5th)

Research has proven that self-esteem-building does not work. However, misguided parents, coaches and social workers are using this flawed technique to create a generation of narcissistic losers who believe that they are "special."

VACCINATIONS (August 12th)

Vaccination is considered modern medicine's greatest weapon against disease. But thanks to pseudoscience, fear, and the public's gullibility, the debate over vaccination safety rages on. Should parents trust their children's health to loudmouth celebrities rather than doctors and scientists?
