The show debuted in 2009 and has been a steady performer for ABC the past nine years, helping hundreds of entrepreneurs and turning "sharks" such as Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec into household names. CNBC regularly airs repeats as well.

FYI: None of the on-air cast members will be there Sunday if you are merely seeking an autograph or photo. This is for folks seriously wanting to team up with one of the Sharks with a real product or idea.
