Last weekend, multiple-job-holding maverick Ryan Seacrest premiered yet another gig, this time for the Discovery Channel, which launched its 2008 Shark Week on Sunday. The affable talent allowed himself to be bitten by a shark off the coast of California in a promotional tie-in with the network’s shark event.

As the new face of Discovery’s animal-themed specials, Seacrest is scheduled to be attacked by a rabid cheetah for Rabid Cheetah Week, drained of a third of his blood for Leech Week and frightened inexplicably by a peahen to herald Those Unpredictable Peahens Week.
