"Shark Tank" is all about the investors (sharks) making deals to buy into companies and thereby make more money. It is all about, and please forgive us for saying it this way, the art of the deal. Part of that season two deal, it seems, is an eight episode order for the show's second season. Don't think of that as a short amount of time in which to find the right investment opportunity, rather you should consider it as requiring the sharks to be a little more artful in the way they go about increasing their investment portfolio. Tonight is their last chance, let's see what deals they make.

In other parts of the world, this format is referred to as "Dragon's Den," but here they opted with "Shark Tank." We think that if we were going to create a series about big money investors helping the little guy out, we would refer to it as "Dragon's Lair" or " Capitalism Club" or maybe "Lion's Den." There is, as you may surmise, a reason that no one has ever asked us to name a television series. But, just because we can't name them doesn't mean that we can't name what you should watch and, consequently, tonight we name the "Shark Tank" season finale.

Here is the thing, it really doesn't matter how long "Shark Tank" runs, there is never going to be a lack of ideas. There are always entrepreneurs out there--or would-be entrepreneurs--who want a change to hit it big and truly believe that they have the next great idea. We don't know if you're going to see someone with a genius plan tonight, but you're certainly going to see people who believe that they have a genius plan. And that is as much fun as seeing folks who actually do.

We have this idea for a product. If only there was a a television show we could go on where people would try to cheat us out of a huge percentage of our project by claiming that they were 'helping' fund the idea. Then, millions of people around the country could watch and they'd know about the thing and the investor could make millions off of it what with the free advertising the television series would provide. Hey look, it's the "Shark Tank" season finale and "Shark Tank" is, essentially, the show we're looking for. Ah, when fate has a sense of humor.

What exactly can we expect from this new season of "Shark Tank?" Well, we'll tell you, it is going to be a whole lot more of the same. We will see inventors come in with good ideas and bad. We will see the sharks argue with the inventors and each other over whether the ideas have even the smallest amount of merit, and, in the end, they will then either make the decision to gain an incredibly strong hold of the inventor's company or to leave the inventor out in the cold to invent again another day. Plus the arguing. We like the arguing.

What if you had a whole lot of extra cash lying around? What would you do with it? The rich folks on this show (hereafter known as 'sharks') have opted to have people come to them and beg them for money. These people who are doing the begging have companies, products, and/or ideas for companies and products but simply don't have enough money to keep their projects going. The sharks turnaround, give the people cash, and get a percentage (and say) in the company/product/idea. It is kind of like a win-win situation, at least it is if everyone does a good job of looking out for their interests, and we get to see it all happen.

For season two of "Shark Tank," Jeff Foxworthy and Mark Cuban will be joining the sharks. The two men won't be appearing in the same episodes, but they will both be appearing. As for the rest of the sharks, all your favorites from last season are returning and everyone will be looking for projects in which to invest. Will they get good deals? Will the entrepreneurs find themselves losing more than an arm and a leg at the mouth of the sharks? Frankly, we just hope that the sharks fight with each other, those are definitely the best moments of the show.

Forget just sticking your toe in, forget testing the waters, forget taking the stairs one at a time - it is the moment to chum the waters and head straight back into the deep end. The sharks are waiting, they're hungry, and this is the last chance for some entrepreneurs. So what if the inventors lose an arm and a leg, they have the chance to keep their dreams alive and well if the sharks will agree to buy in. It's like that old shaggy dog story suggests - quit while you're still a head, and all that requires is the sharks leaving you with the most paltry percentage of your business.

Is America simply out of ideas for new companies and products or is there something else going on? We simply do not know. Whatever the case may be, the first season of "Shark Tank" will be coming to a close tonight. We cannot imagine that our sharks' appetites are satiated, but perhaps the producers have run out of chum... or chumps. Tune in tonight and see if our sharks can come up with one last monster-sized deal before packing it in and heading off to warmer waters for the rest of the season.

It is time once again for entrepreneurs to dive head first - sometimes without looking - into the "Shark Tank." The show follows a format that has been hugely successful overseas wherein people with business or business idea pitch their plans to a bunch of rich entrepreneurs, who then contemplate buying the company out from under the individuals. That's not the goal of the people who are going in to try to get funds, yet more often than not, if the sharks are buying in, they're biting off a huge chunk. That's not to say the individuals won't get fabulously wealthy too, but they might just lose control of their business in the process.
