Here’s the press announcement:
SHARK TANK – SEASON 11
The recipient of the 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014 Emmy® Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program, “Shark Tank” features The Sharks – tough, self-made, multimillionaire and billionaire tycoons – as they invest in America’s best businesses and products. The Sharks will give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires. Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill, Yun Lingner, Max Swedlow, Phil Gurin, Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary are the executive producers of “Shark Tank,” which is based on the Japanese “Dragons’ Den” format, created by Nippon Television Network Corporation. The series is produced by MGM Television in association with Sony Pictures Television.
The Sharks are billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA champion Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary.
The 10th season of Shark Tank is averaging a 0.79 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.59 million viewers. Compared to nine, that’s down by 21% in the demo and down by 12% in viewership. It’s unclear how many episodes will air this season (13 have aired so far). The past two seasons have had 24 episodes each while other seasons have had as many as 29 installments.
Today, the alphabet network also renewed The Good Doctor for a third season and A Million Little Things for season two. At this point, it looks like all three will see their new seasons launch in Fall 2019.
