| Deal or No Deal in Syndication?
| Monday, January 02, 2006
|According to B&C, there's a decent chance. NBC Universal, only weeks after airing the international hit Deal or No Deal on their NBC network for an entire week strip, is apparently looking into moving this to the syndication route as soon as possible. However, don't plan on Fall 2006, as NBC is planning Fall 2007 for a half-hour daily edition of Deal or No Deal.
On the network site, as stated, it was a giant hit, raising rating across the board for them. However, VP of Programming Mitch Metcalf stated that he did not want the Millionaire effect of overusing the show to occur. "We don’t want to overuse or underuse it. In the reality world, we don’t know how long the life cycle for these shows can be. We need to strike a balance." However, things may change on Endemol's side. Endemol has stated that since it was a hit and people know the game, there's no need to stretch it out over a week. They favor once or twice a week. Endemol USA's President David Goldberg stated "I think this is the kind of show that can have a nice long run, but I don’t want to see it get burned out." Currently, the show is scheduled to come back in March.
If you haven't sent in your tapes to try out either, it may be too late, but still keep trying. The show is set to start taping in early February. They are going to tape anywhere from 6-13 shows, according to our source, so you have a better chance of getting down to meet Howie, the models, and the Banker.
