Now in its eighth season, it’s hard to believe that Shark Tank used to struggle in the ratings. And last season, ABC aired 29 new episodes. Will this Friday night series continue to be a success for the network so they want to keep it on the air? Will the sharks stick with the show? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a ninth season? Stay tuned.
On Shark Tank, entrepreneurs seek investments from a group of savvy (and sometimes cutthroat) millionaires. The regular “sharks” are Robert Herjavec, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner.
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.
5/13 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

Last year comparison: The seventh season of Shark Tank averaged a 1.43 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.88 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like the Shark Tank TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a ninth season?
5/11 update: ABC has renewed Shark Tank for a ninth season. Details here.
I really like Shark Tank. What a great platform for would be entrepreneurs to pitch their products and possibly get an investment from one of the sharks. I think it is a very interesting program to watch and hope it continues on the air.
Worst show on Television. None of the people on the show actually own the product they are selling, but they think they do. Just a bunch of grandiose people who want to run for President of the United States after this show is done.
Still enjoy the show, and am hoping for a renewal for next season.
I bought a skin care product because Shark Tank was supposedly endorsing it on Facebook. The product and their devious marketing techniques have led me to believe that Shark Tank promotes businesses that are nothing but ripoffs. Very disappointing.
Agree! This Skin Company is flawed..double-talk on the phone…only wanted to try one sample product but they sent me two (in the same box) and mailing charges were closet $5.00 for EACH one. I am considering getting a new credit card; kind of a shady company whose claim to fame was that all 5 judges endorsed them, so they said. Also going to report this to BBB.
Wow. Who cares what Cuban says about Turnip. The real issue here, is that you all support Trump. Get ready to suck some fat coal.
By the way, Shark Tank is amazing!
thats funny put on a show were people actually HELP POOR BUSINESS minded people and because trump name was mention negatively somehow the show is trash NO SIR IM BLACK and i love All the sharks for the HONEST OPINION ..IF U ACTUALLY WATCH IT U COULD LEARN SOMETHING TO ONE DAY MAKE MONEY LIKE MARK CUBAN ..OH BY THE WAY WASNT TRUMP ON A REALITY SHOW TALKING STUPID TO AMORASA THAT BLACK WOMAN BUT I BET NEITHER OF U STOP WATCHING HIS SHOW ..

Great show. Hopefully it will be renewed
Our family loved this show. Haven ‘t watched a single episode since Mark Cuban started his rantings against Trump.
Haha you guys are so sensitive, you completely stop watching a show Bc someone said something that hurt your feelings
I stopped watching when Mark Cuban went off-roading and starting hating Donald Trump.
We watched religiously until Mark Cuban involved himself in politics and alienated about 1/2 the country.
We stopped watching shark tank during the elections after seeing Mark Cuban act like a ass regarding Trump. Sorry Shark tank we love your show but wont watch Cuban.
Our household felt exactly the same way. Haven’t watched the show since and can’t.
I love Shark Tank! Watching the creativeness and ingenuity of individuals giving pitches to the sharks about something they are passionate about, In hopes of receiving some help to make their dreams come true! What is not to like? Yes, there is the occasional squabble with the sharks, but there seems that there is a reason behind it, And, it can be hilarious. Many times entrepreneurs are really there for a pitch and to grow a business, they get wonderful advice, even in they do not make a deal. There are the few that just want visibility on there product.… Read more »
Shark Tank should be removed. Bored of the same ole same ole. Find I can’t even stomach an entire show after listening to Cuban and Mr Wonderful spew nothingness!
