Watch This Gorilla Do the ‘Flashdance’ in a Kiddie Pool (Video)
Most people like to spend lazy summer afternoons by the pool. Apparently, the same goes for gorillas — well, for at least one of them. A 14-year-old western lowland gorilla named Zola has become an internet star after a short video surfaced of him dancing in a kiddie pool at the Dallas Zoo. The zoo schedules “enrichment sessions” for its animals in order to “enhance environment” and “ them with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors,” according to NPR. And Zola’s favorite enrichment session is apparently pool playtime. Also Read: 'River Monsters' Hunts Down the Fish That's

Weekly Ratings: NBC Rolls With ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ‘Ninja Warrior’ and ‘I Can Do That’
Memorial Day helped ushered in the start of television’s summer season last week, which was dominated by reality programs and the NBA Playoffs.

Airing Tuesday at 10 p.m. behind “America’s Got Talent” (2.6/9 in 18-49, 11.09 million viewers overall), the series premiere of “I Can Do That” (1.8/6 in 18-49, 6.40 million viewers overall) became the highest-rated summer launch in 18-49 since CBS’ “Under the Dome” nearly two years ago.

8 reasons why 'River Monsters' is Animal Planet's most popular show

8 reasons why 'River Monsters' is Animal Planet's most popular show
Animal Planet's most-popular series, "River Monsters," was renewed for an eighth season before it even started its seventh season in early April. So it's no surprise its latest season premiere was the most-watched premiere (in live+3 ratings) ever on the network. The show follows Jeremy Wade, an "extreme angler" as he travels around the world, searching for and learning about scary and dangerous aquatic creatures that may or may not be killing people. Episodes are framed as murder mysteries, so it's basically aspiring to be "Animal Planet"'s NCIS, as the network's president, Marjorie Kaplan, once told me. Why is it so popular? Let's look at clips from last season -- and a few from this season -- to see just what the appeal of "River Monsters" and its host is.

River Monsters: The show is still a good catch, but for how long?

Animal Planet’s most successful show ever sees host Jeremy Wade searching out the world’s most dangerous fish. But what happens what he’s caught them all?

“I think if someone had told me eight years ago that I would still be doing this now, I would have trouble believing them. Originally it was going to be just one program,” says Jeremy Wade, host and star of River Monsters. “When Animal Planet came back to us and said how about a series of these, I wasn’t even sure we could make even a handful more.” Fast-forward to today and River Monsters is the most successful show in Animal Planet’s history. Last year’s season premiere was the most-watched season debut ever for Animal Planet, with 1.7 million viewers tuning in to watch Wade angle in extreme conditions.
