Discovery's NAKED AND AFRAID to Return with New Episodes, 3/16
Last summer, Discovery's Naked And Afraid bared all with its brand new take on the survival genre. This spring, the hit series is back and ready to bare even more when supersized episodes of Naked And Afraid premiere on Sunday, March 16th at 9:00pm ET/PT. Following the premiere of Naked And Afraid is Discovery's all-new talk show, DISCOVERY AFTER DARK (w/t) at 10:15pm ET/PT. DISCOVERY AFTER DARK follows in the footsteps of Discovery's first ever live talk show, Shark After Dark, which premiered after Shark Week 2013. DISCOVERY AFTER DARK will be hosted by Joe Bereta, who will also be joined by Shark After Dark's Bob (the shark) Oschack and social correspondent, Taryn Southern.
Each week on NAKED AND AFRAID, a new pair of complete and total strangers - one man and one woman - will find themselves Stranded in and exposed to one of the world's most extreme environments. The duo - both survivalists with their own expertise - will be dropped with no food, no water... and no clothes. The goal: survive for 21 days with nothing but one personal item each. The prize: the fact that they survived for 21 days with nothing but one personal item each.
Following each new episode of NAKED AND AFRAID, DISCOVERY AFTER DARK host Joe Bereta will talk to the castaways from that night's Naked And Afraid to get a more in-depth look at what those 21 days were actually like. DISCOVERY AFTER DARK will also include celebrity guests, other familiar Discovery faces, behind-the-scenes and never before seen Naked And Afraid footage and in-studio stunts. The new talk show will also have a large social media aspect to it, allowing viewers to interact directly - and immediately - with Bereta and the DISCOVERY AFTER DARK guests. DISCOVERY AFTER DARK is produced by Embassy Row, the innovative production company behind AMC's "The Talking Dead," Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," and Shark After Dark, along with Green Mountain West.
Shark After Dark aired from Sunday, August 4- Thursday, August 8, 2013. Shark After Dark beat every late-night cable talk show competitor, including Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report, TBS' Conan, Bravo's Watch What Happens Live and E!'s Chelsea Lately among Persons 25-54 and 18-49 delivery, no exclusions, Sunday-Thursday. Shark After Dark also beat the above mentioned shows in the coveted Persons 18-34 demo from August 4-7, no exclusions.
