“Animals With Cameras” isn’t as much fun as David Letterman’s experiments with a MonkeyCam, but don’t tell that to wildlife photographer Gordon Buchanan, who is tickled pink to strap gear to chimpanzees, penguins and cheetahs for unique footage. The results may not be terribly educational, but the series ends up being a swingin’ safari.

Everybody dance now
YouTube takes a baby step toward being taken seriously as a home for top-notch original programming with “Step Up: High Water,” an offshoot of the popular film franchise. The story line — teen twins try to boogie their way into popularity at a new school — is kind of a snore, but the A-list directors, including Debbie Allen (“Fame”) and Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), know how to stage sexy, sweaty dance scenes.
“SEAL Team” is still in its rookie season, but it’s already getting a reboot of sorts. In this week’s episode, David Boreanaz’s squad is deployed to Afghanistan, setting the stage for future episodes that will be seen from the point of view of military forces on the ground. In other words, a cameo from one of the characters on Boreanaz’s last series, “Bones,” gets less and less likely.
