WHEN "SHARK WEEK" ENDS, the shark-following fan can grow a bit blue. True, shark week is still on in the ocean, where every week is shark week, and other shark-tastic events, like real-world sightings and screen-based fictions ("JAWS," the "Sharknado" series), continue to swim before our wondering eyes.
