(Los Angeles) - Explorer Josh Gates has spent his career traversing the globe and searching for answers to the unexplained. Now, Gates is continuing his latest, daring mission - as America's most adventurous talk-show host.
For several months, Josh has been inviting celebrities and experts to virtually join him in his expedition headquarters for a chat-show like no other on JOSH GATES TONIGHT. Now, he's back with a brand-new season premiering Wednesday, November 11 at 8PM ET/PT. Josh is also turning hump-day into Adventure Wednesday with an entire evening devoted to exploring the unknown. Following JOSH GATES TONIGHT, viewers can continue exploring alongside Gates as well as scientist Phil Torres and paranormal researcher Jessica Chobot in an all-new season of EXPEDITION X, airing at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
Whether he's learning how to brandish a bullwhip like Indiana Jones, mastering the art of high-speed getaway driving, or mixing up exotic cocktails with Hollywood superstars, Gates has been bringing his hilarious brand of adventure to fans and families at a time when we need it most. In the all-new season of JOSH GATES TONIGHT, Gates will be joined by celebrity guests, including Matthew McConaughey (who discusses his some of his most thrilling adventures and his new book Greenlights) as well as Joe Manganiello, Cheryl Hines, and Apollo astronaut Charlie Duke. He'll also continue safely adventuring while inviting viewers along for the journey. Josh will float in zero-gravity in a specially designed plane performing breathtaking aerial maneuvers. He'll also try his hand at mechanical mortal combat by piloting a robot in the infamous BattleBots arena.
Following JOSH GATES TONIGHT, audiences can continue their adventure as Josh sends his EXPEDITION X investigators to tackle the strangest mysteries and legends from around the nation. Whether it's exploring pitch-black caverns to unmask the identity of the legendary Bell Witch, diving into Lake Champlain in search of America's version of the Loch Ness Monster, or trekking deep into the wilderness in pursuit of recent sightings of Bigfoot, the team has the truth in their sights. Working with experts and recent eyewitnesses and deploying an array of high-tech equipment, they'll shed new light on cases that have confounded and frightened us for generations.
