SHARK TANK

ABC Tuesday, at 800 ET

 PTC Summary:

Production Companies: Mark Burnett Productions in association Sony Pictures Television
Producers: Mark Burnett

Entrepreneurs come before a panel of wealthy investors and present their business ideas in the hopes of garnering an investment on the new show Shark Tank. The investors, or “sharks,” include Daymond John, CEO of the FUBU clothing line; Barbara Cocoran, a real estate mogul who started her five billion dollar business from a $1000 loan; Kevin O’Leary, who sold his software company for over three billion dollars; Kevin Harrington, an infomercial superstar; and Robert Herjavec who hit it big in the dot-com boom.

When the entrepreneurs present their business plans, the “sharks” can sometimes be quite harsh in their assessments of the viability of the plan and/or the entrepreneur themselves. Language is moderate, with unbleeped words such as “damn,” “ass,” and “hell.”Sexual content is mild with only occasional sexual references occurring among the “sharks.” Violence is not a problem for this series.

Shark Tank is not recommended for viewers under age 10.
