Immediately following, at 8PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel will feature the smashing excitement of PUNKIN CHUNKIN, hosted this year by MYTHBUSTERS' Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Returning for its third year of high-flying, nail-biting and explosive competition, viewers will watch teams go head to head to launch their pumpkins the furthest. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Delaware's annual "Punkin Chunkin" competition. To see a promo for the 2010 PUNKIN CHUNKIN, go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VrS5hhEgz0.
