he Emmy Award-winning TV host is back with a new season of the fan-favorite show “Dirty Jobs.” The Discovery series, which originally aired in 2005, highlighted professions that appeared strange, messy and even dangerous but were completed by everyday Americans. Rowe would take on a typical workday to demonstrate the trade’s challenges and why they were necessary.

While “Dirty Jobs” came to an end in 2012, viewers have long asked the 59-year-old to bring it back. And with the coronavirus pandemic emphasizing the importance of essential workers in our country, Rowe thought “Dirty Jobs” was needed now more than ever.

Rowe spoke to Fox News about why he brought “Dirty Jobs” back, whether it was easy to find different gigs and why now is the best time to pick up a new skill for great pay.

Fox News: Why did you decide to bring “Dirty Jobs” back in 2022?
Mike Rowe: Well, I guess the short answer is the headlines caught up to the themes of the show. Viewers reached out by the thousands to say “Dirty Jobs” was the granddaddy of essential working shows, and essential work is now headline news. I was told, “Why don’t you go back into the world? Look under the rock, see what’s there. See what work looks like after two years of lockdowns.” It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. Just when I thought I was out they pulled me back in.

Fox News: How difficult or easy was it to find jobs that you haven’t tried yet?
Rowe: It’s both difficult and easy. It’s difficult in the sense that I don’t have any more ideas. I ran out of ideas in Season 3. I thought we were done back in 2007. But then I did a few smart things – genuinely smart things. I turned the whole thing over to the viewers. Like look, I’ll keep doing the show as long as you keep programming it.
