Prehistoric Sharks

........... my rant for the day....... I noted that advertisment for the upcoming Prehistoric Sharks show on The Discovery Channel:

< http://www.discovery.com/exp/prehistoricsharks/prehistoricsharks.html >

had very little to say in regard to Cretaceous sharks (okay,  Scapanorhynchus was there).  Any ideas why they jumped  from the truly ancient sharks all the way across the Cretaceous to show Carcharodon  megalodon?  There are really a lot of well preserved late Cretaceous sharks from the Western Interior Seaway and elsewhere that deserve a bit of press now and then..........
