(Los Angeles) - Raise your fins for televisions most anticipated summer event which kicks off Sunday, July 28th on Discovery Channel with an all new, jawsome line-up of SHARK WEEK 2019 programming and the return of the hit-late night talk show Shark After Dark. The hit SHARK WEEK talk show returns for its seventh consecutive year, and this year, comedian, retired Marine and self-proclaimed ‘shark expert’, actor Rob Riggle is diving into the shark programming frenzy. Shark After Dark airs Sunday, July 28th – Thursday, August 1st at 11pm ET/PT on Discovery.
After testing the shark infested waters for the first time with Shaq for SHARK WEEK’S 30th anniversary, Riggle is back in a big way, as he makes a splash with all things SHARK WEEK 2019. As host of Shark After Dark, Riggle will be joined by celebrity guests and shark experts each night to discuss and highlight some of the biggest, scariest and totally jawsome moments from SHARK WEEK 2019, while also giving viewers a sneak peek at what’s to come later in the programming. Breaching from the depths of the sea and joining Shark After Dark once again is America’s favorite cartilaginous sidekick, Bob the Shark.
