There are a few different things that we could say leading into tonight’s Shark Tank premiere, but one thing stands out above all: This is LIVE!
For the first time, the ABC reality juggernaut is going to be bringing out the Sharks live in front of an audience for what is probably going to be a very unusual premiere. How do you make a negotiation happen in just a few minutes? Previous episodes have the benefit of being edited together to look slick and professional; this time around, things are going to be more of a challenge.
Because things are live tonight, we can’t present the products in the same way that we usually do. However, we can at least give you a full synopsis with a few details about how things are going to be presented:
“Shark Tank LIVE!” – For the first time ever, Emmy® Award-winning “Shark Tank” will go LIVE in front of a studio audience when it returns for its 14th season. Sharks Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary will be unedited and unfiltered as they listen to entrepreneurs seeking to secure an investment that will change their lives forever. The one-night-only live event will allow home viewers to weigh in on whether the Sharks should take the plunge and make a deal when it premieres FRIDAY, SEPT. 23 (8:00-9:05 p.m. EDT), on ABC. Watch episodes on demand and on Hulu the day following their premieres.
By the end of this premiere, we’re hoping for at least a couple of success stories; we’re not coming into this with the assumption that every single entrepreneur is going to get a deal, mostly because that is a pipe dream. Even if just a couple can, that will make this experiment worthwhile.
What do you want to see from this week’s Shark Tank season 14 live premiere?
