It 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.
