“Shark Week” has a new star attraction: Michael Phelps. Discovery Channel’s list of “Shark Week” programming next month includes a July 23 show titled “Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White.” Discovery advertising the event as  “the world’s most decorated athlete takes on the ocean’s most efficient predator: Phelps V Shark — the race is on!” Whether that means the winner of 23 Olympic gold medals is actually racing a shark remains uncertain.
