Sharks Say: "Only 19 Kids? Amateurs."

The problem with Shark Week is that after writing about it for a few days, you’re going to end up sort of repeating yourself. The same thing happens with any major multi day television event (as those of you who made it through my Winter Olympics coverage can attest) and I’m like “Man, how can I spin this material for another two three days” (I keep thinking it’s Wednesday for some reason.) Then I open my inbox and remember why I love writing for Pajiba. Dudley’s Mom sent me a link today detailing the heartbreaking, frustrating and deeply important search for nothing less than free range shark poop. Enjoy. Here’s tonight’s TV:

8:00pm: “Breakthrough with Tony Robbins” on NBC

9:00pm: “18 to Life” on The CW. Series premiere.

“19 Kids and Counting” on TLC. Fifth season premiere. Yet another season of the Duggars that I will not watch a minute of.

“America’s Got Talent” on NBC

“The Bad Girls Club” on Oxygen. Fifth season premiere.

“Cupcake Wars” on Food Network. First season finale.

“Sharkbite Beach” on Discovery. The tragedy of this is I bet this beach, wherever it is, is absolutely gorgeous and this show will ensure that I never ever go there. I mean, aside from the tragedy of people being bitten by sharks. Obviously.
