    It's entertaining - Mike Rowe is hilarious and some of the jobs are pretty interesting.

    I watch it because it's funny and disgusting. And I'm glad I don't have to do those jobs for a living.

    I watch it because I find Mike's humor very amusing and his
    voice gives great narration. You seem to want stuff to happen to him, to see what we going to say.

    Hi I watch Dirty Jobs for watching Mike....can't help it..he's sooooo good looking... i think its awesome show, and it shows us, what kind of jobs are out there.

    At age 13 my first job was a....super dooper pooper scooper, cleaning kennels at a dog boarding kennel...not nice

    At age 17, I got a job collecting eggs, 1300 dozen a day, in 5 hours, and the smell and other gross things..lol

    And born on a ranch, there was many dirty jobs there too, but some of Mike's well, I get....well grossed out lol.

     Love ya Mike!!!  Love your show!!!

     Big Hugs Dori

    Mike's a hilarious host - and easy on the eyes as well. I came across this show when we went on vacation to Northern Maine and stayed in a cabin that only got a few stations - one of them being the Discovery channel. I've been hooked ever since. I love that they make a point to recognize all the hard work these people do and that despite getting really dirty, they're some of the happiest people around.

    Easy on the eyes? Not my cup of tea but I'll leave that to those of that persuasion.

    Mike's funny, and the fact the he's a germaphobe and still goes out to do these disgusting jobs makes him kind of brave. His commentary is priceless. He makes me feel glad (and sometimes a little jealous) that I have have a boring desk job with 15 hours/day of sitting on my @ss.

    Why did you start watching Dirty Jobs and why did you continue to watch it?

    For me, I was probably channel surfing and happened to come across it and it amused me. That is also why I continue to watch it. Its hilarious. He asks for it, then complains about it. this amuses me.

    I started watching it because of Mike Rowe. Greatest show on Tuesday when nothing else is on. With the way the strike is going this will be all we watch. No sweat off me. Tuesdays are going to be great with Dirty Jobs, and now Jericho is coming back in February!
