Breeding Contempt

Food Network has a new show. A description of the first episode:
Can I really eat something off the floor if I pick it up in less than 5 seconds? How do I stop my mouth from burning after I've eaten spicy food? Is the baking soda in my fridge doing anything? Ted Allen and his culinary sleuths set out to prove the answers to these questions, once and for all!
A Mythbusters episode from three years ago:
Myth: if you pick up a piece of food that has fallen on the floor before five seconds is up, no bacteria will get on it
And from last year:
Myth Description:Tory, Grant, and Kari test to see if there are any other hot chili cures besides milk.
I think I'm going to pitch an idea for a sitcom: a washed-up, former alcoholic relief pitcher owns a bar. Sound cool?
