What’s This TV Show About?
A reality TV series on the ABC television network, Shark Tank features entrepreneurs seeking investments from a group of savvy, wealthy investors who are “self-made” tycoons. These regular “sharks” are Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner. They offer everyday people a shot at the American dream and the possibility of striking business deals beyond their wildest dreams.
Season Nine Ratings
The ninth season of Shark Tank averaged a 1.00 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.10 million viewers. Compared to season eight, that’s down by 15% in the demo and down by 21% in viewership. Find out how Shark Tank stacks up against the other ABC TV shows.
Because Shark Tank is a competitive reality series, it costs less to produce than scripted TV shows, and the “sharks” invest their own money in the competitors’ concepts. While its ratings have slipped over time, it remains one of ABC’s best-rated reality TV series, so they’ve moved it from Fridays to Sundays, which have been a Nielsen nightmare for the network. Although it premiered with higher numbers than last year, the ratings later dropped. Still, I expect this show will score a renewal. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
