If it weren't for drunk guys at a bar, the world might never have been exposed to one of the most awesome ideas in entertainment history: Shark Week!

The next events played out exactly as millions of shark fanatics across the globe have probably imagined. “As I’ve heard it, they were just talking about what kinds of things would be fun to do on Discovery,” the executive producer says. “And one of them said something like, ‘You know what would be awesome?
