‘Mythbusters': Can Season ‘Lucky 13′ Finally Nab an Emmy Win?

9 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If a 13-year-old show — with six Emmy nominations and zero wins in its first 12 years — snags another Emmy nomination, could that validate the term “lucky 13”?

Maybe, if it’s “Mythbusters.”

“I love ‘lucky 13,’ considering we’ve spent our entire show debunking superstitions,” says Adam Savage, who, with fellow host Jamie Hyneman, has conducted roughly 2,800 experiments disproving — and sometimes proving — the plausibility of nearly 1,000 urban legends, myths and common misperceptions since filming began in 2002.

Luck was also involved in Hyneman and Savage becoming hosts of what’s now Discovery’s longest-running series.

“The idea for ‘Mythbusters’ was actually a creation of Beyond Prods. out of Sydney,” Savage says. Producers had trouble finding the right host until they remembered meeting Hyneman and Savage when the duo created a robot for “Robot Wars” in the early 1990s.

Indie Spotlight: “The Katering Show” Is A Laugh Riot In The Kitchen

13 February 2015 4:10 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

American women aren't the only ones who can pull off a cooking/comedy hybrid on a tight budget. Aussies Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney are the titular Kates in The Katering Show, a new web series on the Lead Balloon TV channel.

On their show, fictional versions of McLennan and McCartney (the similarity of their names to another famous duo is apparently just a coincidence) teach viewers how to cook. The catch is that McCartney has a number of food intolerances, so she makes a stomach-safe version of whatever meal McLennan is cooking up. McLennan has no dietary restrictions, but her over-the-top, cloying personality makes her a high-energy foil to McCartney's mopey sad-sack of a co-host.
