WASHINGTON, August 15, 2014 – We promised we’d return to you with the rest of our Discovery Shark Week preview, and here it is.
This week of shark-o-licious specials wrap up Friday and Saturday evening, August 15-16. Concluding festivities include Saturday’s “Sharksanity,” a grand finale feature during which you’ll see the instant replay of top action clips of the week and get a chance to vote on your absolute faves.
For your convenience, TV Den lists this weekend’s schedule below for Eastern Daylight Time viewers. For a more detailed run down on the schedule as well as loads of pix and clips, visit Discovery’s Shark Week schedule page here.
FRIDAY, August 15:
8:00 p.m.: Megalodon: The Extended Cut. Discovery: “A controversial scientist believes that the shark responsible for a rash of fatalities off the coast of South Africa could be Megalodon — a 60-foot relative of the great white, long thought to be extinct, that is one of the largest and most powerful predators in history.” Do some monsters, besides Nessie, Bigfoot, and the Lake Erie Monster still stalk—or swim around—the earth? Maybe we’ll find out tonight, because this show is followed by:
10:00 p.m.: Megalodon: The New Evidence. Collin Drake returns to share new details of his case and present new evidence of this pre-historic and allegedly extinct mega-shark’s continued existence. Can he prove it? Guess, as usual, we’ll have to watch to find out. Again, watch out for those questions beginning with “Could…?” That’s your cue for a five-minute commercial/bathroom break.
SATURDAY, August 16:
8:00 p.m.: Sharkageddon. A reprise of Thursday evening’s 10 p.m. entry with added social networking promised.
9:00 p.m.: The Great White Matrix takes a trip down under with “legendary shark attack survivor Paul de Gelder” and his camera crew to explore Aussie waters that are teeming with our favorite deep sea predator, the Great White. And no, Neo is not on the crew. Tonight, the Great White is “the one.” This expedition aims to find out why so many Great Whites are clustering in certain locales and why they’re so aggressive when they spot humans.
10:00 p.m.: Sharksanity. The week’s wrap up of Shark Week 2014, including “the most insane bites, strikes and close calls.” Plus, viewers will get to pick their favorite moments from Discovery’s 2014 shark festivities.
That’s it for CDN’s previews of Shark Week 2014, folks. See you again next year, same Shark Time, same Shark Channel. Be there or be talked about.
