Down & Dirty With Mike Rowe | CBS News Sunday Morning
On "Dirty Jobs" Mike Rowe has performed more than 300 disgusting, smelly, and sometimes dangerous occupations. John Blackstone spent the day with perhaps the hardest working man, if not the dirtiest, in show business. Rowe shares that the point of the show is not to produce a big story, it's just to show you if you're a bridge painter over a 12 hour day. He highlights the dignity that can be found in hard work. Mike says that if you let people see you fail, or at least see you try, it is shocking what they will forgive you for.
From the Baltimore Opera to QVC shopping channel, Executive Producer and TV Host, Mike Rowe, has had hundreds of jobs and relished his role as a chronic freelancer. He’s best known as the “dirtiest man on TV,” a title he earned on the Discovery Channel's hit TV series, Dirty Jobs, where he traversed all 50 states, completed 300 different jobs, and transformed cable television into a landscape of swamps, sewers, and coal mines. He has narrated hundreds of documentaries about space, nature, dinosaurs, and how stuff works. As a public speaker, Fortune 500 companies routinely hire him to frighten employees with stories of maggot farmers and sheep castrators. He has also forged a handful of partnerships with iconic brands and filmed a boatload of Ford commercials.
