 Chuck Barney’s TV and streaming picks for Aug. 9-15

DON’T MISS: “Shark Week” programming — The summer has been largely wrecked by the coronavirus crisis, but take heart — at least we still have Shark Week.

It all kicks off with “Air Jaws: Ultimate Breach Off.” In this splashy special, three teams of researchers head to South Africa’s Mossel Bay to monitor the shark population and collect data on hunting techniques. But they also hold a friendly contest to see who can capture the most breaches on film — a showdown that produces some breathtaking, must-see visuals. (8 p.m. Sunday, Discovery).
