  1. Hopefully TEN have the courage to move Shark Tank and not just let it rot like The Traitors. They need to send a message to the production companies they utilise that producing such low-rating content cannot continue to be rewarded.

    1. Strongly disagree. Anything in that slot would struggle against two established reality shows well into their run on bigger networks. It was basically the kiss of death for a new show to launch into that. Hardly the production company’s fault, that’s a network problem.

  2. Shark Tank suffers the poison chalice of being on the 10 network…for some strange reason….many people choose not to watch 10…..I watch quite a lot…love the news with Sandra …but I do not care for the weather guy…he is not Tim, he sparkled!…I miss all the hospital/school visits/charities etc….The Project is much better these days…

  3. Sadly, I think I’m done with the Voice Australia. What is the point of the coaches pitching during the blind auditions, telling them how great they all are, then production forcing a cull of half of them, many unceremoniously without any actual coaching being given? The older series at least did battles first where the coaches would work with the singers and get to know them. I know we all know it’s hyperbole for show during the blinds but it’s exhausting when you like an act and then watch them criticised for not.doing something right when the coach chooses a song and doesn’t even engage with them after. On the bright side better than last year where the act dubbed as the future winner of the series was only then shown in the callbacks being told she was cut without even seeing her sing again lol. Even Idol treated their singers this year better than this.

  4. I enjoyed Shark Tank except for Sarah’s voice overs. I like them just coming out, introducing themselves and the deal they are looking for and go from there. I like the new Sharks.

  5. I enjoyed Shark Tank; I watched it time shifted from 8pm. I found the fake elevator quite an odd addition to the set design, but otherwise a pleasing return and a good selection of new sharks.

  6. I was really happy to have Shark Tank Australia back and enjoyed the show. Always liked Robert from the US show and the other new judges were also good.

  7. Ouch shark tank sure did get bitten hard by the competition hopefully it will bite back in the totals great rise for RFDS in the totals hopefully it continues to do so and gets a renewal
