Science Channel returns to the laboratory to unearth history’s most sinister tales with DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE. Hosted by the incomparable John Noble (Fringe, Lord of the Rings), the series opens forbidden research records on the most shocking scientific studies ever executed. From gruesome lobotomy experiments, to controversial CIA studies, to spine-chilling accounts of live human transplants, the all-new season shows that science fact can be stranger – and even more entertaining – than science fiction. Beginning Wednesday, November 21 at 9 PM (ET/PT), DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE takes audiences inside a real-life Twilight Zone, where shocking CGI re-creations illustrate unforgettable tales of genius gone horribly awry.
Thanksgiving Night, Thursday, November 22 from 8-10 PM ET/PT
Celebrating its fifth year on Science Channel, this fall favorite has become a Thanksgiving tradition, served up alongside turkey, mashed potatoes, and (of course) pumpkin pie. MYTHBUSTERS’ Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Belleci join as hosts of PUNKIN CHUNKIN, going behind the firing line to get up-close with the wacky weekend warriors as they compete for the title of: ‘Lord Of The Gourd’. PUNKIN CHUNKIN loads up to launch on Thanksgiving night, Thursday, November 22 at 8 PM (ET/PT) only on Science Channel.
