ONE WEEK, TEN PREMIERES - DISCOVERY'S "MEGA WEEK" BEGINS SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3 AT 9PM ET/PT

From gold to moonshine to Christmas trees to the Cash Cab - Discovery's MEGA WEEK features premieres and supersized episodes of the network's top series. The week-long programming block packs in 10 premieres - including fan-favorites GOLD RUSH, STREET OUTLAWS, ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER, and HOMESTEAD RESCUE, the season finale of Discovery's all-new hit series FINDING ESCOBAR'S MILLIONS, the holiday special A VERY DISCOVERY CHRISTMAS, and the much-anticipated premiere of CASH CAB. MEGA WEEK kicks off Sunday, December 3 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery.

MEGA WEEK embarks with an all-new episode of ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER on Sunday, December 3 at 9pm ET/PT, which follows singer-songwriter Jewel as she returns to Alaska to teach her son the ways of the homestead. At 10pm ET/PT, a special episode of ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER looks at the Kilchers' arsenal of equipment, machines, and weapons that have been vital for their family's survival in Alaska for 80 years through today.

MEGA WEEK speeds off with a STREET OUTLAWS special premiering Monday, December 4 at 8pm ET/PT. Chuck and Ryan look back at some of the biggest rivalries we've seen on the 405 list, while Farmtruck and AZN go head to head in a junky, clunker race. At 9pm ET/PT, it's the first list race of the season, and that means everyone from Chuck down is gearing up for a fight when an all-new episode of STREET OUTLAWS premieres. Then, at 10pm ET/PT, CASH CAB returns to Discovery for a season full of surprises and detours that help unsuspecting passengers score big rewards. Dodging New York City traffic, Comedian Ben Bailey's lucky passengers will take on classic CASH CAB trivia en route to their destination. If they get stumped, pedestrians and friends can help them out via phone, text or social media shout outs. Some unwitting passengers will even be joined by a guest celebrity who help the passengers rack up the cash. If the riders and celebrities get three questions wrong, though, they're out on the street.

Discovery breaks out the mistletoe and holly in Appalachia for the MOONSHINERS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, premiering Tuesday, December 5 at 8pm ET/PT. Tim and JT team up with Tickle's mother and daughter to create a Christmas surprise that he won't soon forget. At 9pm ET/PT, moonshine season is in full swing when an all-new episode of MOONSHINERS premieres. Mark and Digger are ready to test out their 3-pot still in Tennessee, Chico and Sondra employ a four-legged still hand, Josh rides under the radar in South Carolina, and Tim hopes to teach JT about his backwoods roots. At 10pm ET/PT, two elite bush craft masters go head to head building both a bridge over a river, and a waterproof shelter using nothing but 3 hand tools in a special mega-episode of BUSHCRAFT BUILD-OFF.

The Raney family steps in on Wednesday, December 6 for an all-new episode of HOMESTEAD RESCUE at 9pm ET/PT. Marty, Misty, and Matt face a Raney first: a homestead completely abandoned by a couple now forced to work 80-hour weeks back in civilization to cover their homestead costs. Their only hope to fix the homestead for good lies solely in firing up a rusted old gas well and converting natural gas into light, heat, and power to shock this homestead back to life.

Join your favorite Discovery families as they share their beloved Christmas traditions when A VERY DISCOVERY CHRISTMAS premieres Thursday, December 7 at 9pm ET/PT. From trimming the tree to making bush gifts, hunting holiday meals, and even making moonshine - it's time to get in the holiday spirit.

Finally, on Friday, December 8, Discovery ventures to the Yukon for a mega-paced episode of GOLD RUSH at 9pm ET/PT. Todd Hoffman is out of luck, and out of ground, until he makes a desperate play for new land. Meanwhile, Parker's sitting pretty on a pile of gold, but gets desperate for more and pushes Rick too far, and Tony attempts to jump start his season and his success or failure rests on a risky voyage up the Yukon River. Then, Discovery goes into Colombia, South America, for the season finale of FINDING ESCOBAR'S MILLIONS at 10pm ET/PT. Meeting with Pablo's former lawyer, Doug and Ben discover that Escobar's partner, Gacha, was the one who buried the millions, and they go to his properties to dig. After recovering nothing, they set their sights back on La Catedral for one final excavation.
