I'm not sure the maneuver will boost Shark Tank much, or help ABC's summertime weekly 18-49 ratings blues, but the network announced it was replacing the Castle repeat originally scheduled for this Saturday, August 15, 2009 at 10pm with a repeat of the premiere of Shark Tank.
Here's the release:
A CHEF BELIEVES HIS FAMILY’S PIE RECIPE HAS ALL THE INGREDIENTS
TO BECOME A PROFITABLE CULINARY TREAT, ON ABC’S “SHARK TANK”
“Episode 101” –- The entrepreneurs vying for the Sharks’ attention this week include a chef who believes his family’s pie recipe has all the ingredients to become a profitable culinary treat, an inventor with a technological gadget he hopes will take the world by storm, and a nanny who is confident that she has come up with a fun, easy way for children to take their medicine, on “Shark Tank,” SATURDAY, AUGUST 15 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast: OAD: 8/9/09)
Note: This program replaces the episode of “Castle” that had been scheduled to air.
The Sharks of “Shark Tank” are real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, “infomercial” industry pioneer Kevin Harrington, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion icon Daymond John and financial expert Kevin O’Leary.
“Shark Tank” is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
