List of MythBusters episodes

MythBusters is a science entertainment TV program created and produced by Australia's Beyond Television Productions for the Discovery Channel.

There is no consistent system for organizing MythBusters episodes into seasons. The show does not follow a typical calendar of on and off air periods. The official MythBusters website lists episodes by calendar year. On the other hand, Discovery sells DVD sets for "seasons", which sometimes follow the calendar year and sometimes do not. In addition Discovery also sells "collections" which divide up the episodes in a different way. This list follows the calendar year, as per the official episode guide.
