It’s Shark Week! Not familiar with Shark Week? “Shark Week is an annual, week-long programming block on the Discovery Channel which normally takes place in July or August. The show originally aired on July 17, 1988, and it’s the longest running cable television event in history and has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the past few years.” {source}
