  1. Discovery’s Shark Week Will Kick Off With Another Bullshit “Documentary” Instead of Real Science

    Discovery Channel, stahp.

    Remember last year when the Discovery Channel lied about their Shark Week megalodon movie being a documentary? Looks like they're trying to one-up themselves this year with another "documentary," and they just owned up to being behind the above video as a marketing ploy with Nissan.

  6. Watch Tara Reid Vaguely Attempt To Explain How Sharks Work For Discovery Channel [Video]

    Tara, honey, please stop it. You're not Brian Fellows.

    And the mindless Shark Week programming keeps on coming! The other night on Discovery Channel's Shark After Dark, which I guess is like Talking Dead but for Shark Week, Sharknado star Tara Reid joined host Josh Wolf and co-star Ian Ziering to teach us literally nothing about sharks.

  7. Somebody Found a Dead Shark On a Queens-Bound NYC Subway Last Night

    When asked, the shark shrugged and said that he couldn't afford to live in Manhattan anymore.

    Angry science junkies may have boycotted Discovery Channel for airing that completely bogus Megalodon documentary, but apparently the Universe won't allow us to let go of Shark Week so easily this year.

  10. Internet Officially Mad at Shark Week for Airing a Fake Megalodon Documentary

    One could even say that it jumped the... no, no. I'm not going to say it.

    If you happened to tune in to the beginning of Discovery Channel's Shark Week programming last night, you might have caught an unusual documentary about a group of scientists trying to catch a megalodon off the coast of South Africa. Why's it unusual? Because megalodons have been extinct for over 2 million years. Yeah, that'll piss off a few nerds.
