For the longest time, it seemed like Shark Tank was always in danger of being cancelled. It’s now become a big success for ABC. Last season, the network aired 29 episodes (!) and it was one of the few ABC shows that saw the ratings go up year-to-year. Will the numbers continue to rise or will they fall? Cancelled or renewed for season seven? Stay tuned!
On Shark Tank, entrepreneurs seek investments from a group of saavy (and sometimes cuthroat) 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.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
What do you think? Do you still like the Shark Tank TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a seventh season?
