Deal Or No Deal Gets A Deal

January 02, 2006 12:01 AM by Joe Blackmon

According to Zap2it.com, Deal or No Deal has gotten a new deal with NBC.  NBC has ordered additional episodes of the hit game show.  There is no official word on how many episodes have been ordered or when it will air, but based on ratings results recently released by NBC, the answers are probably “a lot” and “soon.”

NBC’s five telecasts of Deal or No Deal won their respective time periods on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights in adults 18-49, total viewers and other key measures.  All five editions of Deal or No Deal ranked in the week’s top 20 (18-49, total viewers).

Not since Who Wants to be A Millionaire has there been a prime time game show that has captured the interest of viewers like Deal or No Deal has.  Deal or No Deal is hosted by reality TV star Howie Mandel, and like Who Wants to be A Millionaire offers up the chance for contestants to win up to a million dollars.

While the basic concept of Deal or No Deal might seem simplistic in that there are no trivia questions to answer or grueling challenges to complete, it offers the same appeal of watching high stakes poker.  It is fun to watch the reactions of the contestants as they struggle to make decisions involving large sums of money. 

NBC is in desperate need of a hit, as their attempt to expand The Apprentice franchise with Martha Stewart flopped.  CBS continues to have success with reality shows and crime dramas, ABC is back in the game with Lost and Desperate Housewives, and FOX has wrapped up American Idol for several more years.  Could NBC find it’s salvation in a hit game show?  Or like with Who Wants to be A Millionaire will viewers soon grow tired of Deal or No Deal when it starts to air on a regular basis?

    Awesome. I loved the show. It was addicting to watch. Hopefully they play it more than once a week though or find a way to speed up the process. Getting through only 1 person in 1 hour kind of sucks if you as me.

    On Saterday 01-14-2006,I just happen to be at the Palms casino, while people were line up, tryin for deal or no deal show. It was about 1:00PM, as heard the people yelling, unbeknownst to me I didn’t know what the commotion was all about. Then as I was just trying to get out of there, low and behold,I just setp out just where Mr.Mandell just happen to be. At that moment this very rude lady push me. I was not trying anything, but to get out of there. Mr. Mandell look at me, then proceeded to give this rude person,the knuckel… I have to say I too have that germ fear, but felt more insulted,He look right at me at that moment, but could not even give me a smile.I wasn’t there to see him, I was there on other business. I got the feeling cause,I am latin and this other person was white,I was pass by whitout even a smile. I am not rude I have morals. I was trying to get out of all the commotion. So my guestion IS MR.MANDELL A RACIST????? yes just cause you see a person on T.V. one has to remember ther just people just like anyone else. I was a big fan of Mr.Mandell but not anymore. PEACE A.C.

    Howie is NOT a racist, what IS your problem? He has had many people of color as contestants on the show – keep watching and try not to look for a problem when NO PROBLEM exists. *S*

    In order to get on the show, you don’t post here and ask that question…..where’s your brains?

    You go to the TV station where it is shown (cbs? nbc?) and ask the question there!!!

    Too bad it appears that your IQ’s are less than your shoe sizes.
