    Did anyone catch this episode last night? It had the mybuster on it and Steven asked them what new myths there were working on. I think Adam said that one of them was the one where they took the body off of the car and reversed it. The reason they did this is because it was belived that the car is more aerodynamic going backwards then forward. I could of sworn this was an old myth but he said it was new this season.

    Didn't catch the episode of Colbert Report, but "Reverse Engineering," the episode in question, aired back in November.

    Here's the video of their appearance:

    Watching right now to see what they said about that episode.

    Edit: Comedy Central bills this as a new episode that aired on 4/11. Jamie and Adam clearly say that the "Reverse Engineering" episode is coming up and they talk about testing the aerodynamics of the reversed sports car. Yet that episode clearly aired last fall, and here is the thread discussing it. So I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe the Jamie/Adam interview was taped a long time ago and just inserted into last night's episode because it didn't have any references to current events so it could be used anytime (evergreen), or maybe Jamie and Adam actually didn't know what episodes had aired and which were coming up. Or maybe last night's episode of Colbert wasn't new and the guide data and website were just wrong?

    Adam said on Twitter (@donttrythis) that he screwed up and talked about the wrong myth.

    So it was live in the sense that it was taped recently.

    Must be a myth. Ever seen videos of the aerodynamic tests on cars? Just like aircraft.

    Colbert and Stewart are taped that day that they are shown. Stewart makes fun of this by saying he has seen a Presidential speech that aired probably after the show was taped. (boy am I old, they could use a digital recorder for all I know)
