Top 10 Programs Broadcast by Discovery Channel


The Top Ten

1 Planet Earth

Good to us

It was the most expensive nature documentary series ever commissioned by the BBC, and also the first to be filmed in high definition - Alexandr

2 MythBusters

Mythbusters is the greatest show in existence! I am in love with Grant! I really with that Discovery would stop replaying the same episodes over and over again. I want to see some episodes from the earlier seasons that I missed. My favorite is when they do ancient weapons and armor myths. My favorite myth of all time is paper armor. SEASON 10 STARTS TOMORROW!

I love when they use the Rocket-Sled. The first time I saw them use it my first thought was "my life is complete" - HarCher

Boring show, two scary pants with no regards for the science.
It's too random, and it's dull when people take them-self way too serious.

So nice show. we learn a lot of things related to real life

3 BrainGames
4 Deadliest Catch

I have never missed one episode I even watched when I was in Jamaica. I love it it's been fun seeing all the great captains and crews battle their way through the merciless Bering sea. I miss Phil and I hope jake gets the help he needs. Also Eliot. My all time favorite program. Thank you discovery jeri lopresti

This show is awesome! It's too bad that Captain Phil Harris died.

Feels like family!

I can't believe this fraudulent show still airs

Really love this this to live there with them...I don't care whatever people say,I have watched the show from show 1 and will be greatly disappointed if you don't keep putting this on...I love The Discovery channel but I hate when we get all into a show and then bam it's gone 😭 you have so many shows on that we have grown to love the all people in each one..we feel that they are in our lives...just like the new one Raised Wild great new one love all the beautiful scenery...keep all the shows going.Thank you

I am completely and utterly appalled this is so far down. You should all be ashamed. Do you even know what character development is. This is a cinematic masterpiece.

21 Alaska The Great Frontier

Love this show!

You should at least get the title correct. It should read Alaska the last frontier. One of the greatest shows on discovery.

When is the next season be back on for 2019 it was going to be on 2/10/2019 But it was never on

When you kill an animal for sustenance, don't thank the animals, they wanted to live just like you. Instead, thank the creator who made you in his image above all animals...laughably stupid.
