The Shark Tank premiere on ABC is set for August 9th at 9pm, following the return of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. (Coincidence? I think not!) Shark Tank episodes will continue on Sundays at 9 through August 23, after which it will shift to its regular time period of Tuesdays at 8 starting August 25.
Can you swim in the Shark Tank?
Shark Tank is a new reality show where entrepreneurs must try to convince five multi-millionaire business tycoons to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they need to jumpstart their businesses.
Each week, ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country will present their breakthrough business concepts, products, properties and services to the panel of the ruthless Shark Tank investors. Their goal is to convince these merciless moguls to invest their own dollars in the concept.
Shark Tank premiere to prove captivating
As you’ll see in the Shark Tank premiere, convincing real-life millionaires to part with their own money is no easy task. When the idea is poor, the Sharks will tear into the ill-prepared presenters and pass on the idea with a simple, “I’m out!,” sending them running for the exit. Entrepreneurs will be asked to give up a percentage of their companies’ equity to the Sharks in order to get the investment they need.
