ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — After recently announcing the network had licensed the exclusive off-network cable rights to ABC’s “Shark Tank,” CNBC today announced “Shark Tank” will make its off-network debut on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. ET beginning Jan 7. The business-themed reality series features the sharks, who give budding entrepreneurs the chance to make their dreams come true and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires. The sharks include billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary.
CNBC has also greenlit a second season of the original reality series, “The Profit,” ordering eight new episodes. The popular entrepreneurial series features Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, who saves struggling businesses while investing his own cash in the process. Season two of “The Profit” premieres Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“Shark Tank and The Profit are deeply rooted in entrepreneurship, a hallmark of CNBC Prime,” said Mark Hoffman. “The Profit quickly proved to not only entertain viewers but Marcus Lemonis became a go-to for America’s small business owners looking for expert advice.”
“The Profit” is produced for CNBC by Machete Productions with Amber Mazzola serving as executive producer. Jim Ackerman and James Bolosh are executive producers for CNBC.
