Shark Tank is a popular, long-running American reality television series that is currently airing on the ABC channel in the United States. The concept of the show is based on a similar television series that used to air in Japan. Shark Tank was created by Dan Purpalaj. The reality series is produced for ABC by Sony Pictures Television and MGM Worldwide Television and executive produced by Clay Newbill, Mark Burnett and Phil Gurin. Season 1 of Shark Tank debuted on the ABC channel on August 9, 2009.
Season 7 of Shark Tank premiered on the ABC channel in the US on Friday, September 25, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. Daymond John, Kevin O'Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec, Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner are all back as season 7 “sharks” and in some episodes they will be joined by guest stars Ashton Kutcher and Troy Carter.
Since its debut back in 2009, Shark Tank has done very well in the ratings department. In fact, to the amazement of many, the show has increased its ratings season after season. If the debut season averaged only 4.8 million viewers, season 6 of the show attracted an impressive 9.1 million viewers per episode. So far, four episodes into the current season, the reality series is averaging 6.2 million viewers. Let’s see if it’s going to be good enough for Shark Tank to get greenlit for another run.

UPDATED March 4, 2016: This year, the newly reshuffled top management of ABC Entertainment tried something that has never been done before by the network: instead of waiting until the end of May and announce the future programming roster for the 2016-17 TV season, the newly appointed network’s chief gave the greenlight to a handful of existing series. Most popular network’s dramas and comedies got renewed, as well as a few unscripted shows. The fan favorite Shark Tank has been officially picked up for another round. Since the premiere date for a new cycle is yet to be determined, sign up for our updates and we will notify you via email as soon as the release date of Shark Tank season 8 is scheduled.
