North Fork native and Shoreham-Wading River High School grad Adam Conover‘s hit series Adam Ruins Everything airs the final episode of its debut season at 10 p.m. tonight on truTV.
Since his show’s premiere on September 29, Conover has spent 10 half-hour episodes dispelling widespread misconceptions about a variety of subjects, including sex, cars, giving, voting, work, hygiene, security, forensic science, restaurants, nutrition and even summer fun. For his Season 1 sendoff, Adam, appropriately, ruins death.
But despite all the death talk, fans should have little doubt that the show will be resurrected for a second season. The show has earned critical success—it scored 9 out of 10 on IMBD.com—and has taken on a life of its own beyond the small screen and into the world of social media, where fans are furiously tweeting and sharing some of Conover’s most shocking and amusing revelations.
Among them, the snarky host explains why the TSA doesn’t stop terrorist attacks; why you should tell your coworkers your salary; why the Electoral College ruins democracy; how Listerine created bad breath; why flushable wipes aren’t flushable; why wine snobs are faking it and tons of other fun facts. Tonight, Conover will take apart our beliefs about death, the funeral business and other related subjects. Perhaps the most disturbing of his points, and the one guaranteed to be true, Conover kicks off the episode by describing how everyone will die and why it’s absolutely necessary for all humans to accept this painful truth. (Watch the video here.)
Sound grim? Well, it is, but don’t expect Conover’s last Season 1 breaths to be without a healthy dose of fun and good humor, with a side of goofy animation, even if he is discussing things no one likes to consider.
Watch Conover tear down the mortuary industry and explain “how funerals completely rip us off” in a clip from Adam Ruins Everything Season 1, Episode 11: “Adam Ruins Death” below. The episode airs tonight, Tuesday, December 22 at 10 p.m. on truTV. To see more clips from the show, visit trutv.com.
