    I absolutely love to watch this show!  It is so funny especially when Mike gets yelled at.  I love this guy, he always makes me laugh.  But do you ever wonder who came up with this idea of the show?  Why would they put a famous guy into a dirty job?  I know why, because we dont realize how hard other people work so we can have a nice life.......... just thought i should share my opinion.  Well how about you share yours and tell me your favorite episode!!!!!

    Mike Rowe was on Larry King last week and he said it was a tribute to his dad and granddad. It started as a three part special. He figured after this special he would move on to the next project. He figured just a handful of people would watch it and that would be it. It snowballed to this phenomenon. He said to be careful what you wish for. (He had no idea that the show's posters on the New York train stations would be so effective)

    I think this show is hilarious. I like it when he gets put in his place by the people who he does the jobs with.
