What hasn't Craig Ferguson done? The Scottish comedian played in a punk band, wrote a novel, sang in London musicals, rose to fame on the Drew Carey show, wrote and starred in several very bad films, entertained President Bush at the 2008 White House Correspondent's Dinner, wrote a memoir, and now hosts The Late Late Show on CBS.

But now Ferguson has topped it all, landing the entertainment world's ultimate gig. That's right: He's hosting Shark Week, the annual Discovery Channel week-long special dedicated to all things shark. Ferguson announced the explosive news on his talk show using a shark hand puppet. (Bonus revelation: Apparently this is the 23rd time Shark Week has aired. That's almost six full months of shark.)
