Discovery Channel’s Shark Week special kicked off this past Sunday, and we really couldn’t care less.

Shark Week, which aired for the first time in 1987, is one of television’s most overrated summer specials. It may have been cool the first few times, but after airing the same shows over and over again, the week-long affair really lost its bite. 

Now it is time for the crew over at Discovery to start brainstorming for next summer’s big special.

You’re welcome, guys.
