‘Mythbusters’ Episode Guide (Aug. 7): The Laws of Attraction Tested

“Laws of Attraction” (08/07/14; 9:00-10:00PM) – The MythBusters use sexy science to tackle five captivating clichés about the laws of attraction including if men really do prefer blondes, if pheromone sprays really work, if bigger busts equal bigger tips, and does a man’s wealth really woo women?

“Traffic Tricks” (08/07/14; 10:00-11:00PM) – The MythBusters tackle congestion questions: testing shockwave jams, if a roundabout is better than a 4-way stop sign, if it’s faster to drive than fly when your trip is under 400 miles, and if it’s better to change lanes or stay put in heavy traffic.

“Mythbusters,” which kicked off on Discovery Channel in 2003, is hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, along with Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara. Inspiring a generation to inquire, interact and get involved with science, “Mythbusters” uses a signature brand of explosive experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends. Over the past 11 years, the team has tested 946 myths, filmed over 7900 hours, created 840 explosions and used 56,500 yards of duct tape.

“Mythbusters” is produced for Discovery Channel by Beyond Productions. For Beyond Productions, Dan Tapster serves as executive producer. Cameo Wallace serves as executive producer for Discovery Channel with Tara Hunter as coordinating producer.
