In an expected move, ABC today announced that Shark Tank, the popular Friday series featuring entrepreneurs pitching to investors, will officially return for a full 22 episode fourth season. Previous seasons of Shark Tank contained 15 (Season One), 8 (Season 2), and 15 (current season) episodes, respectively.
News of the Shark Tank renewal was expected next Tuesday, but the early release tonight alongside renewals of ABC mainstays Dancing With the Stars and The Bachelor signals a shift in the right direction for Shark Tank. Ratings of the show have regularly won its time slot in the all-important 18-49 demographic this season. One week earlier this season, the show gained an astounding 700,000 new viewers in one week.
Die-hard fans of Shark Tank may not be surprised (I’m not) at this news, but at the same time it’s so great to see the show and the Sharks receive their just desserts for entertaining and educating the masses.
