Re: Heads up! MYTHBUSTERS season premiere tonight at 9 Eastern!

Interesting. I'd always figured it was to orient any viewers who drop in on the middle of the episode, since the recaps tend to come when they cut back to any given build after a commercial break. (Like how dramas will often have somebody restate whatever the dramatic hook was at the end of the previous act. Character 1: "The macguffan is gone!" Cut to commercial. Cut back to show. Character 2: "What do you mean, the macguffan is gone?" The drama picks up where they left off.)
