Apparent to many of the Shark Tank viewers tweeting during last night’s season premiere, more people than ever before were tweeting #SharkTank in their comments on Twitter. This was more than just a hunch, as in the 8:00 hour (Eastern Time Zone), the #SharkTank hashtag became a trending topic nationwide for the first time. By my unofficial count, between 5,000-10,000 tweets containing the hashtag were sent over that hour. InTheSharkTank’s twitter account, SharkTankABC, jumped nearly 500 followers in a single day yesterday, which also set a record for us.
Speaking of records, last night’s episode won its time slot for the coveted 18-49 demographic, according to Zap2It’s Jean Bentley. 6.2 million total viewers tuned in to see Daymond, Mark, Kevin, Barbara and Robert get into a feeding frenzy over several pitches. It was an awesome all-around episode.
