ABC has renewed the entrepreneurial reality series.
May 13, 2011
ABC has renewed Shark Tank for a third season. The good news for the show comes on the day the network cancelled seven of its other series.
Shark Tank takes budding entrepreneurs and has them pitch their business ideas to wealthy businesspeople in the hope of gaining an investment from one or more of them. The show returned for a Season 2 in March, and after nine episodes airs its season finale tonight.
For the current installment, the show brought in well-known billionaire Mark Cuban as well as comedian Jeff Foxworthy to sit on the panel of sharks - or investors. No word yet on details for Season 3, but executive producer Mark Burnett has said that he might take a shot on the show next time around.
"If we get a season three, I'll personally go on it - as long as its legal," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I would not be able to know who the people were pitching. When I'm producing Shark Tank I'm kicking myself, why didn't I have a shot at these ideas."

I love the show wish the panel was more receptive to future ideas such as my Aviation patent for new style aircraft and passenger loading system. You can watch a one minute video on YouTube by entering (High Tech Airplane) the video is a simple version with no explanation. What we have done is to do away with the overhead luggage compartment have either a false floor or a compartment under your seat or both to store at least your carry on luggage. The aircraft would taxi to the terminal building but instead of stopping short of the terminal and putting jetway/loading bridge to the aircraft the aircraft would continue forward and push thru a penatratible docking station. Once the noise of the aircraft is inside the terminal the nose of the aircraft would open like a cargo plane and the passengers would slide out of the aircraft while they are still seated. Mean while the departing passengers have been preloaded in spare modules with a drink in their hand and the flight attendants standing in the isle ready to be slide on the aircraft as soon as the arriving passengers have disembarked. No more waiting in line to board or exit, no more waiting for the Aircraft to be cleaned. Once the new crew does their flight check reloads fuel/ heavy luggage your ready for take off. This idea is aimed at domestic flights in an effort to have quicker turns at the gate, provide the passengers a less stressful experience, possibly cut down of number of so rafts required due to quicker turns at the gate, last but not least fewer gates/terminals/real estate required to service increased number of passengers.One thing I failed to mention is that all the spare modules are fully stocked galleys and restrooms are clean/ stocked etc... Ready to travel.
The Aviation industry is broke and needs to be overhauled. There has been very little Change in over 64 years. Watch on YouTube as well by entering(1948 Vintage Airport) and you will see what a modern airport looked like and how it operated.
My name Kenneth Allison and I hold this patent.

How can I promote my idea on the show? I love the show and I think it can do very well. Every one I have showed it (prototype) to has liked it and would rather buy it rather than what's out there. Please let me know either way.

Really love the show. Adding Mark Cuban is a plus. More updates of how past entrepreneurs are doing, gives the show a real boost. I was especially interested in the man with the sweet potatoe pies that went to McDonald's.

Just when you think the TV shows are improving. It's talk of cancellation. Come on I'm real picky. The Shark Tank make me want to create my own business and it give you tons of idea of how to improve your business or make it better. This show has me on pins and needles. I like that it's not charity. You have really pitch ideas and they give very good pointer. I like the diverse board. I look forward to one day meeting the mean guy in the middle. Now the lady never spends a lot of money. She will back out in a minute. The Black guys is so smart about buisness. Would love to talk with him about my ideas. I have 5 projects I'm working on now. Because of them I driven to do better and take on the challenge. So in say please DON't cancel the show. swingoutn2step.net

As an entrepreneur my self, I find the show very interesting and I'm learning quite a lot. I'm going to "bite the bullet" and apply. I think my product would make for an interesting segment -- who doesn't like dips and spreads!!! Please keep this show on the air.

I have watched the show with hope for my turn to present (my big idea). I am currently in the process of getting it protected and starting the patent process. I would like to manufacture it myself, but have no funds to do so, therefore, I will likely license it out to a lucky contractor who can produce it, working with them to develope it into the system I vision. I have built the device and have used it to test and find flaws. It is curently tore down again for the next phase of improvments. How can I make contact to make a presentation?
