The RIVER MONSTERS' season three finale, 'Jungle Killer,' which aired Monday, May 30, at 10 PM et/pt, was the most-watched episode of the season among M25-54 (566K) and helped rank Animal Planet third among all ad-supported cable networks in its timeslot.* Season four of RIVER MONSTERS is slated to premiere April 2012.

In the third season of RIVER MONSTERS, extreme angler and biologist Jeremy Wade is back on the hunt for legendary, flesh-eating freshwater fish. Wade's international excursions into the dark side of the watery depths mixes action and adventure with incredible mysteries, edge-of-the-seat chases and a battle of wills between man and the nearly supernatural beasts that lurk in the world's serpentine waterways. This season brings Wade to some of the most scenic and feared locations on Earth in search of all-new, mysterious aquatic life. And, like all the best horror movies, the images are intense, immediate, gritty and real.

In FINDING BIGFOOT, four eccentric, passionate members of the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) sweep through Southern small towns and remote areas of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska in search of the elusive "creature" known as Bigfoot or the Sasquatch. The foursome engage in the ultimate sleuth, trying to prove that Bigfoot really does exist and is alive and well in the United States! FINDING BIGFOOT airs Sundays at 10 PM, beginning June 5, at 10 PM.
