Do you know this man?

I don't watch a lot a television. Like everybody else, I occasionally get sucked into some horrific show like this (which deserves it's own post, believe me) or House Hunters on HGTV, but rarely do I put aside time just to watch a specific show. Until now, that is.

Please don't ring me up on Tuesday night at 9 o'clock, because more than likely I have my eyes glued to the TV to watch this man, Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs on The Discovery Channel.

Mike, who has in the past sang professionally with the Baltimore Opera, is the host of the show. Dirty Jobs showcases the very messy jobs that many men and women have to work at every day. Not like your typical office job, Mike takes on tasks like roadkill collector, septic tank cleaner and geo duck harvester (let me say about the geo ducks - if you are a fan of sashimi, you should probably skip this episode).

There are three reasons that bring me back to the tube each Tuesday night. First, Mike is always funny, never condescending and seems like an all around nice guy. Secondly, you really do appreciate your work environment after seeing what average people do every day to keep our world turning. The last reason is the most obvious - could he be any cuter?

Hah! I love it. Dirty Jobs has got to be one of my all time favorites.

I never laughed so hard as I did during the horse insemination episode.

THAT is the man I am looking for! Anyone know a Mike Rowe clone???

He is hilarious. I swear he has the same humor as my goofy husband. Never ending.

I missed the horse insemination episode, but can only imagine that it was a scream.

I've seen part of that show before. I'm trying to remember what he was doing. I do remember being somewhat creeped out by what he was up to. He's cute, though! ;-)

WOW he's like THE DUMP HUNK! LOL

I do like SASHIMI! WHAT does he do with SASHIMI? When I get back to NJ to visit my sis I will tune in.

I won't call you on show night!

Did you see him last night on the shark episode? Well, he was at his cutest - in a wetsuit and funny as hell. He's so dreamy....

Did you know that Mike Rowe used to be a host on QVC several years ago? Yes indeed, he did!

Yes, very cute. He used to be a local, Bay Area media guy for the longest - and traded that for "Dirty Jobs"?? Eww.

I loved the mushroom farming one. I had no idea so much work went into mushrooms.

You should come over and watch TV with me. We watch House Hunters, too!! I thought we were the only ones.
