The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I have already given you my comments. Yes, I like the show; I hope you will add some instructive knowledge for all viewers to follow to become productive and the Sharks become more rich. Good luck!

    I like The Shark Tank TV series very much. I find it very insiring; eventhough we don’t learn how to produce a product. I am sure most of TV viewers wishes to learn how to produce different products that sell very well internationally. But most people don’t know how to do this or how to go about it. If you could offer some guide on this topic, this show will be more successfull.

    Renew!! I have a business degree, and I still learn something new or had never thought of before nearly every show. It’s about time that someone put something on tv that made dollars and sense.
