Dirty Jobs was a TV series on the Discovery Channel in which host Mike Rowe was shown performing difficult, disgusting, or messy occupational duties alongside the typical employees. The show, produced by Pilgrim Films & Television, premiered with three pilot episodes in November 2003, it returned as a series on July 26, 2005, running for eight seasons until September 12, 2012. The show's setting was refocused in Australia for the eighth season, advertised as Dirty Jobs Down Under. There is a European edition of the show hosted by former Manchester United and Denmark goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel. On November 21, 2012, Rowe announced. In 2014, Rowe announced that CNN had picked up Somebody's Gotta Do It, starring him and featuring many of the Dirty Jobs crew; the series was nominated for 5 Primetime Emmys: 3 for Outstanding Reality Program, which Rowe was nominated for as a producer, 2 for Cinematography. A worker or team of workers takes on Rowe as a involved assistant for a typical work day, working hard to complete every task as best he can despite discomfort, hazards, or repulsive situations - and, at times, all three.
The Dirty Jobs crew, including field producer Dave Barsky, cameramen Doug Glover, Troy Paff, Dan Eggiman, audio technician Josh Atkins get just as dirty as Rowe does. Rowe takes on-camera jabs at Dave Barsky, regarding Barsky's penchant for setting up scenes where Rowe will encounter the most dangerous or dirty part of the job in order to get a great camera shot. Rowe engages in near-constant self-deprecating humor, making what he calls "dirty jokes", but more than the occasional playful jab at the workers themselves. Nearly every job is more difficult than he had expected, this has him expressing admiration and respect for the workers' skills and their willingness to take on jobs that most people avoid; every episode begins with the following narration by Rowe, the first sentence of, spoken on-camera while he is in the midst of a disagreeable task: My name's Mike Rowe, this is my job. I explore the country looking for people who aren't afraid to get dirty — hard-working men and women who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us.
Now, get ready to get dirty. The show is a spin-off of a segment host Mike Rowe once did on a local San Francisco show called Evening Magazine; the segment was called. After completing a graphic piece on cow artificial insemination, Rowe was inundated with letters expressing "shock, fascination and wonder". Rowe sent the tape to numerous networks, including Comedy Central, who replied saying "At this time, our fall schedule does not allow for a talk show that takes place inside a septic tank." Rowe sent the tape to the Discovery Channel, which commissioned a series based on this format. Dirty Jobs was produced by Craig Piligian of Pilgrim Television; the Discovery Channel executive producer was Gena McCarthy. On May 6, 2013 Mike Rowe posted on Facebook that he was open to creating a new show, similar to Dirty Jobs using Somebody's Gotta Do It, the title of the original segment that had inspired Dirty Jobs. Rowe said that if half the people on his Facebook fan page said "Hey, here's 10 bucks for jet fuel and basic production costs," he'd "put the band back together and start shooting Somebody's Gotta Do It tomorrow."
On April 10, 2014 Rowe announced on his Facebook page. On August 12, 2018 Mike Rowe posted on Facebook that "the idea is being floated around" to reboot Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel. In July 2006, the show aired two special episodes to kick off and wrap up Discovery's annual Shark Week, of which Mike Rowe was the host; the episodes featured him in a number of jobs related to the animals, some as outlandish as shark repellent tester and shark suit tester, both of which necessitated his jumping into a shark feeding frenzy. As a pun on Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" theme, the two episodes were named "Jobs That Bite" and "Jobs That Bite... Harder" for the opening and closing hours respectively. In late August 2006, the show reached a milestone with Mike Rowe's 100th dirty job; this was commemorated with a special two-hour episode which showed Mike's day with the U. S. Army's 187th Ordnance Battalion at Fort Jackson, included bloopers plus an "about me" segment of Mike's crew. At the end of the episode, Mike Rowe and Dave Barsky had a guitar/banjo duet and performed a song about the 100 dirty jobs.
A 2-hour 150th job special aired in early December 2007, which combined footage of Rowe's 150th job with footage of a party held at a San Francisco garbage dump where people featured in past Dirty Jobs segments were reunited with Rowe. In 2009, the show returned for a fifth season, with Rowe commenting in promotional spots, "After 200 dirty jobs, I'm back for more." It was renewed for a seventh season, which Rowe described as including "a broader geographical palate."An eighth season, marketed as Dirty Jobs Down Under, premiered on August 22, 2012. There were only four episodes filmed for season eight; as a result of being featured in the season 1 episode "Vexcon", exterminator Billy Bretherton starred in his own series on A&E, Billy the Exterminator. Each episode ends with a segment

Top Gear (U.S. TV series)
Top Gear is an American motoring television series, based on the BBC series of the same name. The show's presenters are professional racing driver Tanner Foust and comedian Adam Ferrara, automotive and racing analyst Rutledge Wood; as with the original British version, the show has its own version of The Stig, an anonymous racing driver, a celebrity guest was featured each week for the first two seasons. The show premiered on November 2010, on History, its most recent season, Season 6, began airing on April 26, 2016. On June 28, 2016, the BBC confirmed that the series had completed its contractual run on the History channel." The show's first two seasons followed a similar format of the BBC version: three main hosts present, The Stig tests vehicles, celebrities are invited for interviews and to drive vehicles around a test track. In addition, challenges similar in nature to the ones presented in the original show are replicated in Top Gear; the "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" segment uses a Suzuki SX4 Sportback.
Filming of this segment, along with in-studio segments take place at the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, now known as the Orange County Great Park, in Irvine, California. Beginning in season 3, the show changed its emphasis to the hosts' stunts involving car customization, with all studio-based segments, as well as car reviews and Power Laps, discarded from the series. During the first two seasons, Power Laps was a segment of the program in which The Stig completes a lap around the track in a reviewed car to compare its performance to previous contenders. All laps are timed with the car's manufacturer-provided adjustable settings configured for maximum performance — all adjustable suspensions are set at their most efficient, all gear shift maps are at their most aggressive, driving aids such as traction control are deactivated. 1:18.6 - Ariel Atom 1:19.5 - Tanner Foust's Ford Fiesta Rallycross 1:22.0 - Dodge Viper SRT 10 ACR 1:22.4 - Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1 1:22.6 - Lexus LFA 1:22.8 - Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superlaggera 1:23.3 - Ferrari 458 Italia 1:23.4 - Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce 1:25.3 - Porsche Panamera Turbo 1:26.9 - Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Balboni 1:27.2 - Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon 1:27.4 - Cadillac CTS-V Coupe 1:27.6 - Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG 1:28.2 - Aston Martin V12 Vantage 1:28.2 - Ford Mustang 302 Boss 1:28.4 - Lotus Evora 1:28.5 - Ferrari California 1:28.9 - Ford Mustang Roush 1:29.2 - Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR 1:30.0 - Subaru Impreza WRX STI 1:30.0 - BMW X6 M 1:39.0 - Hennessey F-150 VelociRaptor 600 5:22.0 - Lamborghini R 485 During the first two seasons, Big Star, Small Car was a recurring segment on Top Gear, inspired by the "Star in reasonably priced car" on the original Top Gear.
During each episode, a celebrity is interviewed by one of the three presenters. Discussion is amusing, focuses on car-related matters, such as the celebrity's car history; the presenter and the studio audience watch the guest's fastest lap on the Top Gear test track. The car used for this segment is a Suzuki SX4 Sportback; each guest practices with The Stig before making several attempts to complete the test track in the fastest time. The guest does not learn their time until the interview. Practice laps and the drivers' facial expressions are shown during the segment. Note: means the track was wet when the lap was taken. 1:39.3 – Stephen Moyer 1:41.8 – Patrick Warburton 1:42.4 – Arlene Tur 1:43.2 – Tony Hawk 1:43.9 – Kid Rock 1:44.0 – Tim Allen 1:44.3 – Jon Huertas 1:44.3 – Bill Engvall 1:44.4 – Bret Michaels 1:45.3 – Dominic Monaghan 1:46.6 – Ty Burrell 1:46.7 – Edward Burns 1:48.1 – Rick Harrison 1:49.2 – Adam Levine 1:49.9 – Kal Penn 1:51.1 – Joe Mantegna 1:51.5 – Austin "Chumlee" Russell 1:55.2 – Steve Schirripa 1:55.2 – Michelle Rodriguez 1:55.4 – Lake Bell 1:55.6 – Buzz Aldrin 2:06.9 – Bridget Marquardt In 2005, Discovery Channel made a pilot for an American version of the show featuring actor and IHRA driver Bruno Massel, actor John Jenkinson, actor John Littlefield as the hosts.
The attempt was not picked up by the Discovery Channel. The pilot featured Iron Man director Jon Favreau as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, a race between Littlefield's 2005 Ford Mustang and Jenkinson's 2005 Dodge Charger R/T, a review of the Lexus RX 400h. After the pilot proved to be unsuccessful, the Discovery Channel began airing a "Americanized" version of the British Top Gear show with presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May; this show featured clips of features and challenges from Series 1–5 from the BBC Two show with introduction segments recorded by Clarkson and May at the Dunsfold Aerodrome studio for the US audience. Regular features like "The News" and "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" were not shown on the Discovery Channel version. In April 2007, the BBC was still looking to export an American produced version of Top Gear to the United States. NBC announced, in January 2008, that it had ordered a pilot for an American version of the show, retitled Gear. BBC Worldwide had been contracted to produce the pilot for NBC.
According to NBC reality chief Craig Plestis, many automakers had shown interest in America's version of Top Gear. On June 16, 2008, NBC and the BBC announced an American version of Top Gear, to be hosted by Adam Carolla, Tanner Foust and Eric Stromer; the studio segments for the pilot were taped on July 26, 2008 to favorable reviews citing close following of the UK version's format. NBC was expected to have Top Gear premiere as a midseason replacement in 2009. Jay Leno, who turned down offers to host the show, expressed concern in 2008 over whether or not a show like Top Gear could be success

Writer Bob Burton in his book Inside Spin: The Dark Underbelly of the PR Industry expressed concern that the television show, by being subject to post-production editing, allows the producers to remove anything that shows any mistakes made by the government agencies concerned. Instead, Burton argues, the show gives the viewing public the sense that the government is and administrating border security policy. In 2009 Media Watch suggested that the Department of Immigration and Citizenship used its working relationship with Seven as leverage for an apology to its National Communications Manager, Sandi Logan, who had appeared in an unflattering light on a Today Tonight report.

In November 2014, American sex work activist Monica Jones was detained in Villawood Immigration Detention Centre after the Department of Immigration and Border Protection cancelled her tourist visa at Sydney Airport.
Jones commented that producers for Border Security "knew details of what Immigration was going to do to me" and that "It was about 30 seconds before the cameras showed up... and tried to get me on their TV show" Jones was asked by an immigration officer "Are you OK if they continue to film" when she had demanded that the TV cameras leave. A Canadian version of the show, titled Border Security: Canada's Front Line, began airing in 2012 in Canada, it was cancelled after three seasons, due to the Canadian Privacy Commissioner ruling that the show and the CBSA had breached the privacy act.
