DISCOVERY CHANNEL CELEBRATES THE HOLIDAYS WITH ALL-DAY MARATHONS OF FAN FAVORITES

-- World Premiere of 2010 PUNKIN CHUNKIN on Thanksgiving Day at 8PM --

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Discovery fans can get energized this holiday season by tuning in to Discovery Channel on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's for some of their favorite programming.

Starting at 9AM ET/PT on Thanksgiving, there's an all-day marathon of MYTHBUSTERS, the Emmy(R)-nominated series that uses science to prove or disprove myths and urban legends. Immediately following, at 8PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel will feature the smashing excitement of PUNKIN CHUNKIN, hosted this year by MYTHBUSTERS' Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Returning for its third year of high-flying, nail-biting and explosive competition, viewers will watch teams go head to head to launch their pumpkins the furthest. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Delaware's annual "Punkin Chunkin" competition. To see a promo for the 2010 PUNKIN CHUNKIN, go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VrS5hhEgz0.
