Tonite's TV Alert
Kevin Salwen on Culture

Some jobs are horribly filthy. That's the premise of the Tuesday night Discovery Channel show hosted by Mike Rowe called 'Dirty Jobs;' it's entering its third season of limited runs. For instance, one show features chick sexers, people who have to look up a baby chicken's rectum to determine what sex it is. Another featured scrap-metal recyclers and underwater loggers.

Rowe does the jobs of all the people he profiles, including what he called the dirtiest job -- charcoal making. 'Every time you break it, you get a cloud of smoke,' he told ABC News. 'Nobody ever comes home clean from that job.... You get dust in every pore.'

Just a little something to help you get past that meeting you think is interminable.
