    The show is like watching fish getting shot in a barrel. It offers up poor souls with harebrained schemes and makes merry sport of eviscerating them.

    There are so many things I hate about his new show, In the Shark Tank, that I started numbering them just to calm down. Where to start?

    A disgusting show with disgusting people. If enough Americans watched it we would probably convert en masse to communism.

    Burnett didn't invent this show or concept!!! It's been going on up here in Canada for 2 years - in fact Kevin O and Robert are both on the CBC show up here in Canada!! Full Review »
