Last week was Discovery Channel's Shark Week, and now that it has passed, now that Alien Sharks: Return to the Abyss has come and gone, it's time to look back and honor a historical moment in 27 years of Shark Week history. According to Deadline Hollywood, this year's package was the highest rated Shark Week among women 18 to 49. Finally, proof that pure awesomeness is appealing to all genders.

Maybe the network's doing something right. Or, more likely, we can thank Hand Job Academy's period joke anthem, "Shark Week," for the uptick in interest in large carnivorous fish among women of all ages.
