About Adam Ruins Everything

Adam Ruins Everything is based on a CollegeHumor web series of the same name, and stars comedian Adam Conover. Each episode begins with an ordinary person going about their daily lives before stating a common misconception regarding a certain topic. Usually the person in question is recurring cast member, comedian Emily Axford. Adam appears seemingly out of nowhere and introduces himself, and informs the other character and the audience about the misconceptions related to the character's statement. This dialogue serves as a springboard to a more in-depth discussion of commonly-held beliefs and falsehoods related to that topic, in which Adam provides historical background to explain how the ideas in question became popularized, introducing real-life experts who explain these details, and citing peer-reviewed science studies and other empirical sources from which the information is derived. When he does this, the citations briefly appear onscreen. This information is presented via the use of sketch characters, time travel, and animated segments, sometimes to the annoyance of the other character. At the end of the show's third act, the other characters' frustration will reach a critical point, prompting them to feel demoralized and disempowered. In the fourth act, however, Adam responds with a "positive takeaway", explaining how the new knowledge that has been provided can provide a solution to the situation, and explaining how the characters and views can do their part to improve society and their lives.

Follows the exploits Mike Rowe as he performs various dirty and dangerous jobs around the USA. Discovery announced it has begun production on the fan-favorite series DIRTY JOBS. Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, will return to the network to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible. The series will premiere later this year on Discovery. "Every now and then, the headlines catch up to a TV show and make it relevant in ways that no one imagined. With essential work in the news, it's impossible not to think of Dirty Jobs, and for the last year, people have asked me every day if the show would make a comeback. Today, I'm happy to say the answer is yes. In other words, just when I thought I was out, they sucked me back in!" Mike Rowe said. The upcoming season of DIRTY JOBS finds Mike getting back to work and getting his hands even dirtier than before - heading deep in the southern bayous to high up in America's remote Badlands. The dirtier the job, the better as Mike tackles each job with his typical candid, no non-sense take and wry sense of humor. Mike plans to lend a hand to those on the frontlines - protecting the nation from invasions, even if it involves glowing scorpions and giant iguanas. The series will also follow Mike as he helps protect Rocky Mountain motorists from cliffside tree disasters and joins first responders as they hone their abilities on the most life-like medial emergency dummies in the world. Each episode will showcase the unsung heroes and the communities that rely on these essential jobs. The popular franchise, which first aired on Discovery from 2005 to 2013 and rebooted last summer as a limited series (DIRTY JOBS: ROW'D TRIP), will show Mike back in action as he showcases the unsung heroes of this country. It's time to get dirty - again! DIRTY JOBS is co-produced for Discovery Channel by School of Humans, LTD. and MRW Productions.

For MRW Productions, Mike Rowe and Mary Sullivan are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Boyle and Joshua C. Berkley are executive producers and associate producer is Paola Espinosa.
