NBC will surely miss the Olympics ratings bump once the Games are over, with closing ceremony set for Sunday, but the rest of TV is more than ready to get back to business. Even as the torch is being snuffed on NBC, the lights are going on elsewhere.
Including on AMC, which airs one of the most gripping episodes to date — and that's saying something — of its dark masterpiece Breaking Bad (10/9c), in conjunction with the return of the drearily dour Western Hell on Wheels (9/8c) for its second season.
Shark Week is almost here!
Celebrating its 25th year, Shark Week will kick off Sunday, Aug. 12 at 9/8c with Air Jaws Apocalypse. The special will pick up where the Emmy-nominated Ultimate Air Jaws left off, with shark expert Chris Fallows and natural history producer Jeff Kurr embarking on a quest to track a 14-foot great white named Colossus in Seal Island, South Africa.
Colossus certainly lives up to his name — even the other sharks fear him. The real question becomes: Are the filmmakers tracking him or is it the other way around? Check out an exclusive sneak peek of Air Jaws Apocalypse below:
