Fans of Deadliest Catch are used to After the Catch wrap-ups, but for season 9, which begins Tuesday, Discovery will try something new: Deadliest Catch: The Bait, a series of one-hour pre-game shows that serve as walk-ups to episodes and offer an inside look from the captains. The inaugural Bait debuts April 16 at 8 p.m. ET, before that night’s Catch season premiere. In addition to a tour of Dutch Harbor and never-before-seen footage as the captains look back at season 8 and preview season 9, the hour includes an appearance from Catch fan Steve Carell, who recently mentioned how much he enjoys watching the show during a Tonight Show appearance.

Watch an exclusive clip of him lobbing a question at Sig Hansen below. He also asks Keith Colburn one, we’re told. Cable reality shows can be so addictive. Perhaps it’s why Carell appeared on History’s Pawn Stars last month.
