Kevin O'Leary quits Dragons Den to join U.S. show Shark Tank

Kevin O'Leary joins former Dragon Robert Herjavec on the U.S. show Shark Tank.  Michael Wekerle, a tech media investor, and Vikram Vij, a restauranteur, will join the CBC show, replacing O’Leary and Bruce Croxon, another Dragon who is leaving.
“I am really pleased to be getting the opportunity to work with Michael and Vikram. We are delighted that the two new Dragons are top calibre entrepreneurs,” said Tracie Tighe, executive producer of Dragons’ Den, in a statement.
Dragon's Den is the CBC's top rated show after Hockey Night in Canada.
After struggling initially, Shark Tank, produced by reality producer Mark Burnett (Survivor), is showing solid ratings, hitting almost 8 million viewers last week.
