Mysteries of the air, of the sea, of the culinary arts and of a gang of four long-time friends who have made the practical joke an art–and this time they are swimming with sharks.
Impractical Jokers Shark Week Spectacular [Discovery, 8p]
The Tenderloins are taking on Shark Week. More specifically, they are trying to prove that sharks aren’t the man-eating beasts we think they are. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that that group of whackadoos may not be the best at that. They are the group most likely to punch a shark in the face this side of Jacksss. Godspeed, my dudes.
Street Food: USA [Netflix]
The people who brought us Chef’s Table investigate the street food of America while challenging my fears of Typhoid.
MH370: Mystery of the Lost Flight [History, 8p]
It’s still a source of fascination that in this day and age a whole aircraft could seem to completely disappear. We now know more about the plane’s last hours–at least that it was drifting for hours–but the why is still a total mystery. Presumably, this doc will give us even more information about the ill-fated flight.
BUT, WAIT, THERE’S MORE:
- Is she still the one fans will run to? The one that they belong to? Well, if Netflix shared its stats, we could find out, but either way the streaming service is running a doc telling the story of her life with Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl.
- The funnier Alice Hamilton would Thanos-snap her into oblivion, but if you’re into her whole thing, Whitney Cummings: Jokes hits Netflix today. We’re just still peeved about having to see her and Chris D’Elia all over the NYC Subway for her terrible short-lived sitcom.
- The cutely numbered Italian coming-of-age series Di4ries follows the story of eight students at Galileo Galilei Middle School as they notch off all the things that middle schoolers usually do in these things.
