I would think this is better suited for the TV forum.

I have to agree. Great link. I read every word. I do think more people would connect with this thread in the TV forum.

I was a huge Shark Tank fan for several seasons, but something changed. It used to be a sophisticated, classy, family show you could watch with children, to teach them a few things about running a business, while entertaining them at the same time.

The sharks used to get upset with each other now and then, but their comments were usually funny and light-hearted, never degrading, never personally insulting to anyone. But that's all changed. Mark, Demond, Kevin, Barbara, Laurie and even Robert rip at each other like never before. Mark's "I'm better than you because I have more money" comments to Robert are not acceptable. Kevin gets worse every season. You can always expect Barbara and Laurie to attempt to steal a major portion of someone's business, and do it with a smile on their faces. The only one left with some dignity are Robert and Damond, but lately even they disappoint me.

The Shark Tank is slowly plummeting down to the same guttural level of Jerry Springer. No doubt that's what the producers want...to please a new blood thirsty generation.

The thing I hate most is when one of the sharks will make an offer and then force the "contestant" to make a decision without hearing all the other offers. That should not be allowed. That's what appeared started this fight.

I also support the Mods moving this to the Television forum.

I think it's great. It's tough to start a new business and the sharks have made many people ,millionaires that otherwise may not have made it. Someone even appears on ST and boom magic happens with orders pouring in.
I don't think their bickering is outof line. It is called Shark Tank.
I do think they hyped up the "sharks walking out" thing. It was nothing and they walked out, but the show was OVER ANYWAY.
Maybe they have an agreement that they can get mad and walk out, but not till show is over .

I love the show. Face it just like other reality shows we see what the producers want us to see.
