Punkin Chunkin: Superchunk!
Each year, hundreds of pumpkins lose their lives in the Punkin Chunkin World Championship in Dover, Delaware. But their sacrifice is not in vain: Science Channel films the annual event and airs the highlights a couple days after Thanksgiving. The official event was canceled this year (there was a kerfuffle over permits at the regular location), but the Chunk must go on, and so former Mythbusters Kari Byron and Tory Belleci got together with a group of Chunkers in New Hampshire for a weekend of experimental gourd-hurling. The resulting Punkin Chunkin: Superchunk! special will air Saturday, Nov. 29 at 8/7c on both Science Channel and Discovery.

Three familiar faces are leaving the long-running Discovery Channel seriesMythBusters.
Kari Byron, Grant Imahara and Tory Bellici will be leaving the show after 10 years.
Details of their departures are scarce, but Byron tweeted: "The show is taking a new direction. It was an amazing run. I learned so much about myself and the world. I love you all @MythBusters."
Science took a dangerous turn Tuesday when the Mythbusters team had an experiment go awry.
The Discovery Channel show was testing out a ballistics experiment when their cannon misfired and launched a cannonball into a California neighborhood just east of San Francisco, the Los Angeles Times reports.
