Series format and production info
Dragons’ Den is a UK reality television show adapted from the original Japanese format owned by Sony Television. The program has had a long and successful run since 2005, and is currently in its 14th series, which premiered on July 24, 2016 on BBC Two. Dragons’ Den is hosted by Evan Davis, executive produced by Dominic Bird, Sam Lewens and David Tibbals and hails from BBC Manchester and Sony Pictures Television International.
The show’s format is familiar to television viewers, but Dragons’ Den was actually one of the pioneers with its concept. The idea is simple – budding entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas to a panel of five millionaire businessmen and businesswomen. If the potential investors deem the project viable they may fund its development and receive equity in the future business.
Current series, viewership and renewal prospects
The current series features Peter Jones, the veteran dragon who’s been on the show since its inception, Deborah Meaden, Nick Jenkins, Touker Suleyman and Sarah Willingham. The show’s been delivering extremely solid and consistent ratings for the network, averaging between 2.5 and 3.5 million viewers per episode. The current series is keeping up with this trend, having premiered to an audience of 3.37 million viewers, ranking BBC Two’s #1 program of the week. Although it has lost a million of its viewers by the fourth episode, the numbers are still within the range typical for the last few series of the program, so there doesn’t seem to be anything to worry about in terms of renewal. Stay tuned, and we will let you know when BBC Two reveals its plans.
