"Shark Tank"
Season Premiere Sunday, October 1 at 10 PM ET/PT on ABC

          “Shark Tank,” the critically acclaimed reality show that recently won its fourth consecutive Emmyand revolutionized entrepreneurship in America, is back for a ninth season with the Sharks continuing the search to invest in the best ideas, businesses and products that America has to offer. Whereas the two-hour season premiere airs from 8 to 10 PM ET/PT, the show will air in its regular time period beginning Sunday, October 8 from 9 to 10 PM ET/PT. 

          In the season premiere, things get fiery in the Tank when Sir Richard Branson vents his frustration with Mark Cuban in a shocking, never-before-seen way. An 11-year-old inventor, skater and surfer from San Clemente, California, solved a problem he had by recycling a skateboard deck to fit inside lockers and backpacks; an entrepreneur from Meridianville, Alabama, is revolutionizing aerial sports with his exhilarating human flight experience; a husband and wife team from Vicksburg, Mississippi, have literally elevated the camping experience with their outdoor camping gear; and an entrepreneur from San Francisco, California, claims her five-minute meditation app will help the world reduce stress, improve focus and sleep better.

         Adventurer, entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir Richard Branson is featured in a profile highlighting how he made a career out of breaking tradition. Founder of the Virgin Group, Sir Richard has created more than 400 companies spanning travel, financial services, telecom, health & wellness, and more recently, space travel. The Sharks in this episode are Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Sir Richard Branson.
