Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Shark Tank TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?

Good luck Nancy, I hope you make it on! I never really watched Shark Tank until recently when a coworker at Dish recommended I go on the show. My idea is far from ready for that, but I’m addicted to the show now! I’ve even been watching the older episodes on this free streaming site dishonline(dot)com. It has a ton of shows on there and watching Shark Tank on my lunch breaks seems to make the days go by faster.

Love the show. I was surprised it was ever renewed once, let alone twice, but I’m not complaining.
