Kicking off Discovery’s 33rd annual Shark Week is the franchise’s first reality series, a competition taking the form of a six-week crash course aboard a research vessel, where eight shark enthusiasts vie for a berth on scientist Dr. Riley Elliott’s next shark-diving expedition. On Discovery’s linear channel, opening-night highlights include Crikey! It’s Shark Week (Sunday, 8/7c), where Robert Irwin comes face to face with a Great White, followed by the more comedic Tiffany Haddish Does Shark Week (Sunday, 9/8c) and a Jackass Shark Week special (Sunday, 10/9c).
