Ok, on thursday or friday, Opie said "they already did" their "mythbusters meets jackass" show and it only lasted like a week.

What show was he talking about?

I was wondering that also. Must of been pretty awful and not promoted all that much. Sometimes a company that has other successful shows on a channel can get it in their contract that it's automatically played, this thing could of been on in the middle of the night on a Wednesday.

If you do a search, it is called "Search and Destroy".

"Comedy Central on Wednesday unveiled that it is developing a new show to be hosted by the CBS/XM radio duo Opie and Anthony.

Entitled Search and Destroy, the show is described as a scavenger hunt in which "teams of comedians run amok in New York City." Each team faces off in head-to-head competitions and has a list of assignments they must complete.

Comedy Central unveiled Search and Destroy as part of its 2008-09 talent and development slate. "

Then again, I seem to remember they did 2 different shows. not sure.

One was the jackass meets mythbusters, where I think OnA said it was pitched and the TV execs just sat there. I think it might have been for A&E. (again, relying on my memory, so i could be way off). That seemed to have been a few years ago.

Then they did the Comedy Central "search and destroy" thing last March.

I didn't think he was referring to them doing it, I thought he meant "they" like the tv industry.

I was just thinking maybe it was one of those bad Mythbusters ripoffs you see on Discovery, A&E, or History.

Sam and Dave talked about being involved in the filming of this pilot on a Special Delivery show about 2 weeks ago when discussing when they first got paired together during a segment for the pilot. They mentioned getting paid 99 dollars for a couple days work from the production company and having to spend extended time hanging around with the Big A / Stalker Patty types. I think Sam mentioned it never aired and Comedy Central ended up passing on the show. Someone may have the audio of it, I recall it being on the live show a few Saturdays ago.

How exactly is Manswers related to either Jackass or Mythbusters?
Because when they originally talked about "J meets M" they said the pitch was a show that answers all the questions men want answered, like Opie specifically mentioned wanting to find out what happens if you throw a car in park at 60mph.

I don't know about park, but throwing a car doing 60 in drive into reverse REALLY fucks up your transmission, trust me.
