Say what you want about President Obama, but the guy can pull in some ratings.
The President made a guest appearance on the Wednesday, December 8 episode of the show and more than 2 million people tuned in to check it out. As we noted earlier, President Obama asked the mythbusting duo to solve the legend of Archimedes' solar ray, which was storied to be one serious weapon.
Although the team had handled such a fiery mission twice before, this time the President wanted them to examine the myth by considering manpower.
With that many people tuning in, the episode landed in the No. 1 spot among cable primetime programs that night among men 25 to 54 and men 18 to 34.
