    If you are watching, what do you think so far?

    I like Shaq and I always enjoy Shark Week.

    Shaq is great on the basketball court, but not on Shark Week.

    :cool:

    Hadn't watched it before but I thought Sharqueil O'Neil was pretty funny when things got up close and personal.

    I like it a lot, but lately have been rooting for the sharks to take a chunk out of some of the idiots that do dumb things.

    Was just watching Guy Fieri doing some shark show, not sure if it was for shark week or one of the other stations. I want to see that shark visit flavor town. MONEY!

    I cant watch it much anymore. All the shows are over dramatized and mockumentaries. I watched the first episode sunday of bear grylls acting like he was stuck on a rock with the tide coming in and sharks all around. He was doomed to be shark food except he fired a flare into the air and was rescued by a boat. That kind of manufactured drama annoys me and I cant enjoy a show with it.

    Mr. Shockley, 10th grade, biology. He'd record Shark Week and we'd watch clips of that in class all the time. That was my only real exposure to it. We were happy, TV instead of work. He was a creepy dude though. SUPER TALL Jehovah's Witness with a monotone voice. His podium was right at penis level, and he'd grind that thing left and right or slowly thrust the podium all class, just banging into that thing. "Now we're going to watch some sharks. Everyone likes sharks."

    I love sharks and have been obsessed since I found my first shark tooth as a kid at the beach. However, shark week just keeps getting worse and worse. Having Shaq on there should have been great, but they didn't utilize him right and it turned out lame. Then they had Gronkowski, Aaron Rodgers, and Vonn on there and it was unwatchable. Less celebrities, the better off it is. Remember that lame Phelps vs a Great White last year? Before that was a fake documentary about the Megalodon. It is shark week, show sharks. It shouldn't be that difficult.

    NatGeo Wild has been doing their shark week for the past 2 weeks and the shows have been much better. So I've been watching that instead of Discovery's celebrity shark week.

    Edit: I forgot they even had Rhonda Rousey on shark week this week. Why? Who cares about her?

    Tonight the people of Shark Tank will be on the show.

    Can we officially say that Shark Week has jumped the shark?
