The third season of entrepreneurial reality series Shark Tank has received a small extension of two extra episodes. For the second straight season, ABC has ordered additional episodes of the series which will be comprised of already-shot footage that was originally slated to go unused.

The 8:00pm Friday night time slot has been a successful one for the show so far this season, competing admirably with rivals Undercover Boss and Kitchen Nightmares. Shark Tank's most recent episode earned a season-high tying 1.8 among adults 18-49.

The extra episode order bumps the current season's total to 15.
