    If Mike left the show I would give the show a few episodes to see if I like or not. If I don't like the new format I would stop watching it, if I like the new format I would stay with the show.

    would depend on how funny the new host is - Mike Rowe really makes it entertaining!

    Granted I am always for the show being apperciated for itself and note just actors but hey I have to say here lets face it MIKE IS THE SHOW! I almost 99.9% sure I would not watch if he was gone, but maybe I could give it the smallest of chance if they had a great host but I doubt it! No Mike No Show!

    I believe that I mostly agree here but I would lean towards not watching it. Much like Attack of the Show, sometimes even the best shows cant survive without the original hosts.

    I get the feeling Mike has a strong role in the production of the series, so as long as he and the crew stay in that capacity, I'd give the new guinea pig a chance.

    But please don't let MTV or Ashton Kutcher get their hands on it.

    If he did I have funny feelings he won't get himself as invloved with the jobs as Mike dose. That one of the appealing factors of the show, the host dose the work as well.

    i would give it a chance and i prolly would sit there critizing the whole time lol. mike makes the show and as Minarvia pointed out, he does the work and rly tries to do a good job. plus hes just hallarious. if he dint do the show it would turn into something to watch when theres nothing else on.

    I'm not sure if the show would be watchable without Mike's hilarious antics.  However, in his absence, I would have to give it a show or two to be sure.

    I think it depends totally on who would replace him, I'd give the new guy a try, but he still wouldn't be Mike.

    Mike makes the show fun, and he's not hard on the eyes. If he left, the show would'nt be on anymore.

    Mike has the kind of cold realistic humor that I like.
    I doubt there'd be anyone as good as him at just that.
    So, I would more than likely quit watching if he left.

    Mike is the greatest for the job and he'll always be there (mainly because his show makes Discovery Channel even more fun to watch, and lots of ratings come from this show alone).

    Also, he is so damn funny

    I would protest and not watch it. i would write the company and tell them to get him back. this show would be nothing without him. Just like "the price is right" is nothing now without bob barker. Drew just don't cut it as a game show host! I Love mike and i would be rightly mad if he left the show!
