Mark Cuban to dive back into Shark Tank

The business-based reality television show that Mark Cuban appeared on three times last season and loved to watch while sweating on the stair master before Mavericks games has asked him back.

ABC executives have signed Cuban to be on Shark Tank for nearly all of season 3, EW.com (Entertainment Weekly) reported Thursday. The billionaire and Mavs owner will appear on 10 of 13 shows.

Fresh off attending the Mavs' clean sweep at the ESPYs Wednesday night, Cuban on Thursday said he's looking forward to returning to the popular, high-stakes reality show.

"I'm excited to be back to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams and to find ways to create as many jobs as possible," Cuban wrote in an email.

Shark Tank, EW.com reports, is expected to return Friday nights in midseason.
