CNBC Prime Premieres New Reality Series "The Profit" Tuesday, July 30th at 10pm ET/PT
"When I have skin in the game, my way is the only way your business will survive."
--Marcus Lemonis,Chairman & CEO Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, title sponsor of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS,N.J. — June 11, 2013 — CNBC Prime today announced "The Profit" will join the network's primetime reality line-up on Tuesday nights beginning July 30 at 10pm ET/PT.
If you have a business that'sin trouble and think your management team can survive America's turnaround king, then you're ready for "The Profit."
When Marcus Lemonis isn't running his multi-billion dollar company, Camping World, he goes on the hunt for struggling businesses that are desperate for cash and ripe for a deal. In the past 10 years, he's successfully turned around over 100 companies. Now he's bringing those skills to CNBC and doing something no one has ever done on TV before … he's putting over $2 million of his own money on the line.
In each episode, Lemonis makes an offer that's impossible to refuse; his cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. And once inside these companies, he'll do almost anything to save the business and make himself a profit; even if it means firing the president, promoting the secretary or doing the work himself.
