Okay, that was incredibly lame…but how can I hide my excitement?!
Discovery Channel announced Wednesday that Andy Samberg will host the annual “Shark Week” this summer. Serving as the network’s first Chief Shark Officer, the Saturday Night Live star will take over for last year’s host Craig Ferguson, who racked up 31 million viewers for the network.
“I’m overjoyed about being appointed CSO. Everyone loves Shark Week. It’s the Bill Cosby of week-long television blocks dedicated to sea animals,” Samberg said in a statement.
Shark Week won’t be the only thing keeping Samberg busy this summer. With yet another season of SNL wrapping up, his comedy rap group, The Lonely Island, will be releasing their new album “Turtleneck and Chain” in May.
Sounds like big news!!
Hopefully, The Lonely Island makes a cameo…this time singing about …sharks?
