Mythbusters has been one of the Discovery Channel's most watched shows since it began 11 years ago on January 23, 2003. Today Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage announced that co-starts Tory Beleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara would be leaving MythBusters. They thanked them for being an important part of the show and explained that the show would be returning its original format with only Jamie and Adam performing experiments and busting the myths. It isn't clear why they will be leaving, if they have been asked to leave or if it's simply a decisions by Discovery Channel to change the format. It could simply be an effort to reduce production costs in order to keep the show going with Jamie and Adam. It's possible that contract negotiations went south. Either way this is sad news to millions of fans and the end of an era for the Discovery Channel. Tory, Kari, and Grand have proven to be a valuable part of the show. Their charisma and personality have added greatly to Mythbusters. They will be missed.
