In a bold move that’s sure to make waves in the television industry, new ABC owner Elon Musk has announced that he’s replacing the daytime talk show ‘The View’ with ‘Shark Tank.’
Sources close to Musk say that the decision was made after he spent a weekend binge-watching the popular entrepreneurial show, and became convinced that it was the key to ABC’s future success.
“Elon is always looking for innovative solutions to problems, and he sees ‘Shark Tank’ as the perfect replacement for ‘The View,'” said one source. “He thinks that the show’s focus on entrepreneurship and innovation aligns perfectly with his own vision for the future.”
Of course, not everyone is thrilled about the change. Fans of ‘The View’ have taken to social media to express their disappointment, with many accusing Musk of being out of touch with what viewers want.
“Who wants to watch a bunch of rich people sit around and make deals all day?” tweeted one disgruntled fan. “I want to hear real women’s perspectives on the news!”
But Musk is undeterred, and has already begun planning for the new incarnation of ‘Shark Tank.’ Insiders say that he’s considering adding new segments to the show, such as “Rocket Tank,” where contestants pitch their space-related ideas to Musk himself.
“Elon is always looking for ways to merge his business interests with his personal passions,” said the source. “And what’s more exciting than space?”
Only time will tell if Musk’s gamble will pay off. But one thing’s for sure – if ‘Shark Tank’ takes off on ABC, we’ll all have Elon Musk to thank for it.
