There is one week all year that millions of people look forward to and it is merely because it gives them the opportunity to be up close and personal with the animals they’ll never want to get up close and personal with. Shark Week begins on the Discovery Channel on the night of Sunday, July 31, 2011, at 9:00 PM EST / 8:00 PM Central.

Shark Week 2011 begins on Sunday night with two brand new shows including Great White Invasion at 9:00 PM EST and immediately followed by Jaws Comes Home at 10:00 PM EST.
Great White Invasion
Great white sharks, in large numbers, are now suddenly being found swimming among surfers and vacationers just off beaches from South Africa to Australia, and up and down the coast of California. Just why they’re there and just what they’re doing is a mystery that Chris Fallows and an international team of sharks scientists are trying to figure out.
Jaws Comes Home
Jaws Comes Home tells the story of passionate shark expert and U.S. Fisheries scientist, Greg Skomal, as he documents six remarkable months following five great whites with names like Curly and Ruthless. His mission: to understand more about their recently discovered, 1,200-mile journey up and down the eastern seaboard and to reveal all he can about these much-maligned hunters.
