Tonight Marks the Start of ‘Monster Week’ on Animal Planet

Monster WeekRiver Monsters has made a splash with Animal Planet viewers (the best-performing series in network history), so it’s only natural that it would inspire something a bit bigger, a bit creepier. So, beginning tonight at 8pm ET/PT, Animal Planet will bring you Monster Week — a full week of River Monsters, new episodes of Call of the Wildman and Finding Bigfoot, and a the two-hour CGI special, Mermaids: The Body Found.

You can check out the full Monster Week schedule on and preview Mermaids, which examines evidence of the mythic animal’s existence, below. So join host Jeremy Wade and a cast of monsters for eight nights of mysterious creatures…from the safety of your couch.
