Surprise Shark Week is a Mixed Blessing
US Olympic Trials: Swimming on NBC at 8:00pm ET. It’s an Olympics year, so it’s time for us to all develop very strong opinions about mostly obscure sports for about two months and then forget them for another four years. You might laugh or roll your eyes, but I am only mentally capable of caring about any sports in these relatively controlled bursts, so this is perfect for me.
So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Ah, So You Think You Can Dance has grown up enough as a reality series to acquire a colon. It’s truly into its middle age as far at TV goes.
Shark Week: Jaws of the Deep on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. I forgot to mention that Shark Week started last night because I had no idea Shark Week was starting last night. Isn’t it early? I always associate Shark Week with, like, July or August. Is it based on the solar or lunar calendar? Liturgical calendar? Standard or Orthodox? This is worse than Easter. I should write Discovery.
