Tonight's TV Forecast: Shark Tornadoes

This is what it looks like inside a shark tornado

A lot of TV shows jump the shark. We prefer when programs confront their sharks directly, in any way, shape, or form, be they sharks in the water or sharks in the sky.

Please, please, please don't miss "Sharknado," a made-for-TV movie premiering on the SyFy channel tonight, at 9 p.m. PST. In what promises to be the most epic racket involving weird animal disasters since Snakes on a Plane, (sans Samuel L. Jackson, unfortunately), disaster strikes SoCal in the form of a freak thunderstorm, lifting and scattering our favorite living fossils to the four winds.

Check out the trailer of massive, whirling tunnels of sharks.

Looks like we're not the only ones dumping on L.A. anymore.

As if that's not enough for you to tune in, the film stars American Pie's Tara Reid and that guy from "90210", who chainsaws a flying shark in half, apparently.

Holy shark. Anyway, be sure to tune into so you, too, can be a part of of this inevitable-cult-classic's inaugural spin. After all, it's already gotten the Internet's jaws snapping.
