"Jaws" (1975), 5 p.m., AMC or Shark Week specials, 3 p.m. Discovery Channel. It was "Jaws" that launched our national obsession with sharks. A young director (Steven Spielberg) and a veteran composer (John Williams) created vivid images. And it is Discovery that propels the obsession each year. Tonight's films have "Prowling Sharks in the Mediterranean" at 4 p.m., "Jaws of the Pacific" at 5, a "Mythbusters" special at 6 and "American Shark" at 8. Then "Jaws of the Pacific" and "Mythbusters" rerun.
"Baby Borrowers," conclusion, 8 p.m., NBC. Last week's episode (rerunning at 7 p.m.) had the teens become temporary parents of other teens. Now the final twist has them care for the elderly, with varying disabilities. A follow-up tells what happened to the couples when the experiment ended.
