MICHAEL PHELPS BREAKS YET ANOTHER RECORD

"PHELPS VS. SHARK: GREAT GOLD VS. GREAT WHITE" IS "SHARK WEEK'S" HIGHEST RATED TELECAST EVER

Michael Phelps may have taken silver against a great white shark in PHELPS VS. SHARK: GREAT GOLD VS. GREAT WHITE, but the special took home gold as Discovery's highest-rated Shark Week telecast ever across P25-54, W25-54, and W18-49. PHELPS VS. SHARK: GREAT GOLD VS. GREAT WHITE averaged over 5 million Total Viewers.

In addition to the medals for PHELPS VS. SHARK: GREAT GOLD VS. GREAT WHITE, Discovery was Sunday night's #1 basic cable network in primetime, while also topping all broadcast networks across P/M 25-54, P/M/W18-49, and P/M/W18-34. Across the whole day, Shark Week programming reached over 15 million Total Viewers. Discovery also claimed the Top 4 unscripted cable telecasts of the day with PHELPS VS. SHARK: GREAT GOLD VS. GREAT WHITE, SHARK-CROC SHOWDOWN, GREAT WHITE SERIAL KILLER LIVES, and GREAT HAMMERHEAD INVASION, across P/M25-54, P/M18-49, and P/M/W18-34.

SHARK WEEK was a huge hit for Discovery GO, the network's TV everywhere streaming service. The premiere of Shark Week was the highest live and on-demand streaming day to date on DISCOVERY GO, with overall streams increasing daily as the week progressed, making Shark Week the most watched event on the platform. More than 50% of the Discovery GO streams were viewed by 18 - 34 year olds.

Tune in this Sunday, July 30th at 8pm ET/PT to see the Michael Phelps take a crash course on everything "shark" in SHARK SCHOOL WITH MICHAEL PHELPS. Michael Phelps joins Doc Gruber and Tristan Guttridge of the Bimini Shark Lab; they'll dispel the myths and common misconceptions, teach him how to safely dive with sharks - including how to stay calm when a hammerhead swims two feet above his face - and will get Michael Phelps up close and personal with the incredible power of a great white.
