Posted on

Shark Week

Discovery’s 25th anniversary Shark Week continues tonight with the premiere of two new specials: In 9 p.m.’s Sharkzilla, a team of engineers and paleontologists build a model of a prehistoric 52-foot Megalodon, and MythBusters‘ Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tori Belleci feed it things to chomp on. In 10 p.m.’s MythBusters’ Jawsome Shark Special, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman count down their top 25 shark myths of all time — which includes new myths along with their previously tested. Watch an exclusive clip of that show’s opening below.
