Shark Tank: ABC TV Show Renewed for Season Six

Shark Tank season sixIt can pay to have a little faith. ABC stuck with Shark Tank in its early days when it was struggling to find an audience.

Now, it’s become one of the top-rated shows on Friday nights and is one of the only ABC shows that is up in the ratings year-to-year. ABC ended up ordering a whopping 29 episodes for season five and the network has now renewed the show for a sixth season. No word on how many installments will be produced but no doubt there will be at least 22.

On Shark Tank, entrepreneurs offer a portion of their companies to a group of saavy (and sometimes cuthroat) millionaire investors. The “sharks” typically include a five person combination of Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Lori Greiner, and Mark Cuban.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to season six? Do you have a favorite shark? How many episodes should the network order?

    I love Shark Tank. I watch it faithfully every Friday night. I can’t wait to see what season 6 brings. I laugh at the guest when they think a shark will do a deal with only 10%, like they have all said “10% is not even waking up for”. That my favorite line the Kevin started. But my favorite shark is Marc Cubin. He is always honest, funny and kinda cute for a older guy!!!! Please never cancel this show or I will be heart broken.
