Craig Ferguson announced last night on the Late Late Show that he will do what all men hope to in the course of their careers: he’s going to host this year’s Shark Week. Well, actually, a shark puppet named Brian released the big news about the Discovery Channel’s 23rd year of Shark Week, which starts August 1st (we’ll wait while you figure out how to set your Tivos that far in advance).
Ferguson will have to travel to the Bahamas for his hosting duties. The details of his responsibilities haven’t yet been released, but we’re hoping Craig and Brian the Puppet Shark get involved in Ultimate Air Jaws, a super high tech show allowing viewers to watch great white sharks jump out of the water and murder the crap out of other sea-dwelling animals.
