Shark Week Link for Episodes and Schedule
Discovery Channel's annual must-see event, Shark Week, is back this summer with seven premiere programs that spotlight the sea's apex predator, including two specials hosted by Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) that profile the people whose jobs are to work with sharks. Airing Sunday, August 2 through Friday, August 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT each night, Shark Week is produced in conjunction with leading shark researchers around the globe, and provides viewers with valuable knowledge about the behavior and characteristics of this diverse and majestic species.
Shark Weekhost Mike Rowe introduces each night’s premiere special, and also hosts the Sunday, August 2nd two-hour kickoff special Dirty Jobs: Jobs That Bite, and the Friday, August 7 one-hour special Dirty Jobs: Jobs That Bite Harder. For both, Mike travels around the globe to do jobs that really "bite," alongside the dedicated men and women who work with the ocean’s most efficient predator. From performing shark necropsies to tagging and tracking the migration patterns of sharks, and testing shark repellants and chain mail, these jobs help better our understanding of shark behavior.
