One thought on “Dragons’ Den premieres September 14 with new dragon”

  1. The first two or three seasons of this show were good, then it went down the crapper after that. I hate, HATE the way CBC produces this show….it’s just awful.

    Watch the UK Dragons’ Den and you’ll immediately see how much better it is than the Canadian version.
