The sharks have really taken over.
Taking a playful cue from Discovery's favorite event-viewing "Shark Week," ABC has announced it has commissioned "Shark Tank Week."
The network will air a week's worth of episodes of its hit business-skewed reality series "Shark Tank" in September. The strip of programming will consist of fan-favorite episodes from the past four seasons, not new episodes.
"We love the idea of 'Shark Tank week,'" said ABC president Paul Lee during the network's portion at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills. "We think it's funny. [The show] has a huge, impassioned audience."
The pitching and negotiating will begin Sunday, Sept. 8, and conclude on Friday, Sept. 13. (check local listings for times). It will all lead up to the Season 5 premiere of the Emmy-nominated series the following week, on Friday, Sept. 20, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
