TV Watch List: Weekend, July 29-31
‘Great White Invasion’
FILM. It’s Shark Week! The annual celebration of all things Jaws kicks off with this documentary following scientists as they try to figure out why great whites are swimming dangerously close to shores populated by vacationers. Andy Samberg serves as Chief Shark Officer and hosts programming throughout the week.
Premiere, Sunday, 9 p.m., Discovery
ANIMATED. The most kick-ass animated cats of the ’80s are back in this update of the classic cartoon. Sorry, “Heathcliff.”
Series premiere, Friday, 8 p.m., Cartoon Network
‘The Lady with 700 Cats’
REALITY. Just don’t tell the subject of this Jane Lynch-narrated special how cool the ThunderCats are — Lion-O would never tolerate that kind of feline hoarding.
Saturday, 10 p.m., Nat Geo Wild
‘MTV2’s 120 Minutes with Matt Pinfield’
MUSIC. Settling back into “120 Minutes” with original host Matt Pinfield is as comfy as a well-worn flannel and perfectly broken-in Doc Martens. The “alternative rock” video showcase from the ’90s continues its tradition of highlighting musicians largely unheralded by the mainstream.
Series premiere, Saturday, 1 a.m.
