Each Night Features a Favorite Episode from One of the Sharks

ABC'S hit series "Shark Tank," fresh from a 2014 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program, is eating up ABC's primetime schedule with the return of the popular "Shark Tank Week," beginning Sunday, September 7 at 8:00 p.m. "Shark Tank Week" will conclude on Friday, September 12 at 9:00 p.m., gearing up for the special two-hour Season 6 premiere on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The Sharks thoughtfully fished out six episodes from last season's blockbuster haul. Following are highlights from each episode.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) - (Barbara Corcoran's pick) -- "Episode 511" - When this episode aired last season, the Sharks were shocked by the extremely lucrative online sales figures from this Austin, Texas couple's knee-high boot socks. But Barbara Corcoran was a believer. "I fell in love with Melissa and Rick Hinnant of Grace & Lace the moment they stepped onto the set because they looked the part," said Barbara. "Melissa is a sexy fashion designer and Rick is a man who talked money. When they sold a million dollars in socks five days after airing, I knew I'd stay in love forever." (OAD: 11/22/13)

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) - (Mark Cuban's pick) - "Episode 522" - Two Boston men operate a popular 5K obstacle course race series in 20 cities that features 100 foot water slides, fire and water hazards, as well as other "epic" obstacles. Only Mark Cuban crossed the finish line and sealed the deal. He says, "Rugged Races embodies the future of entertainment. People want to put down their electronic devices and experience life. Brad and Rob are the right entrepreneurs to make it happen." (OAD: 4/25/14)

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET) -- (Lori Greiner's pick) -- "Episode 509" - Two men from Orem, Utah think their repair wrap, Fiber Fix, will become an everyday household fix-it tool. Shark Lori Greiner says, "I love the Fiber Fix episode, they came out and immediately got my attention, great demo and the product screamed how awesome it is." A great shark fight ensued!

WEDENSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) - (Daymond John's pick) - "Episode 513" - Former pro football player Al "Bubba" Baker from Avon, Ohio sold Shark Daymond John on his delicious boneless baby back ribs which can be cooked in two minutes in the microwave. Plus, Sharks Mark Cuban and Daymond John travel to Washington, D.C. to be panelists at the Kingonomics Entrepreneurship and Investment Conference, an event for minority-owned businesses which also includes a casting call. (OAD: 12/6/13)

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) - (Robert Herjavec's pick) - "Episode 512" - A business duo from San Diego presented a fashion show highlighting Tipsy Elves, their fun, witty take on the traditional Christmas sweater of the past - Shark Robert Herjavec made a deal and is finding that it's Christmastime all year long with the company's great profits. He says, "When I invested in Tipsy Elves, I was really investing in Evan and Nick. A dental surgeon, a lawyer and projections of $8 million in sales for 2014 -- how could I go wrong? The ugly Christmas sweater possibilities are endless!" (OAD: 12/13/13)

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) - (Kevin O'Leary's pick) - "Episode 515" - Shark Kevin O'Leary says, "This episode features one my favorite entrepreneur duos, Julie and Brian Whiteman, who invented an amazing photo sharing service that bridges the gap between digital and analog. It's called Groovebook, and if you haven't tried it yet, you should! You won't believe how they figured out a way to offer beautiful printed photo books for just a few dollars -- with shipping!" (OAD: 5/11/12)
