UPDATE: Shark will now not premiere on July 30 following a late amendement by Seven. Instead a double episode of Criminal Minds will screen. The move is likely to a response to the competing finale of Big Brother. Shark is now due for a later launch in August.
Seven’s new drama Shark will kick off at 9:30pm on Monday July 30.
In a risky move for Seven, the show will premiere on the same night as the finale of Big Brother, currently scheduled to end at 9:15pm -but when has that ever finished on time?
It would certainly be in TEN’s interest to stretch the final out to 9:45pm.
James Woods stars as “a charismatic, supremely self-confident defence attorney, who after a shocking outcome in one of his cases – and a personal epiphany – brings his cutthroat tactics to the prosecutor’s office.”
Meanwhile, Las Vegas returns to Seven at 8:30pm Thursday August 2 with a double episode. It kicks off with Season 4’s, “Father of the Bride Redux” guest starring Jewel and introducing Cheryl Ladd as a regular.
