Top 10 Programs Broadcast by Discovery Channel


The Top Ten

1 Planet Earth

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.

Love it

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

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

I can't believe this fraudulent show still airs

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.

This is the greatest show to ever grace American eyes.

Great family show outstanding scenery!
