Shark Tank: Season Five Ratings

Shark Tank TV show on ABC ratingsShark Tank could have easily been cancelled in its first seasons but ABC chose to stick with it instead. Last year the show had its best season yet. Will the numbers continue to rise or will they fall, putting the show in danger of being cancelled again? We’ll have to wait and see.

On Shark Tank, entrepreneurs offer a portion of their companies to a group of saavy (and sometimes cuthroat) millionaire investors. This season, the “sharks” include Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Steve Tisch, and John Paul DeJoria.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    I don’t like conflict, so I do not enjoy this show. I would not have it on my TV, but spouse likes it. I find something else to do while the show is on.

    It’s not a normal TV show and that’s the difference between Shark Tank and all the other shows. ABC inovated green lighting this show and now it’s one of my favorite shows. Thank god it was renewed.

    This is one show that is a waste of my time, it should be canalled. Just don’t understand how people would put thyself thru something like this…how can this be entertaining, watching someone being put down at time so bad. Its like a dog bagging for a bone. I do not call this show innovative and refreshing compared to other new shows that are entertaining and in some case will bring out maybe something’s that are happing this country. Shark Tank can go and I don’t miss it at all!!!
