I look on the bright side; it will be only three years or so until NBC could be number 2 in the ratings, as IMO they're acting like ABC in entertainment and sports programming.

That out of the way, Friday night's Deal was probably the best so far, and to me brought it into the true game show realm with the added value of a Hummer II thrown into a deal. I don't disagree with some that it's a stupid concept, but it is along the lines with "Let's Make a Deal;" all people had to do is show up for a chance to win.

I like the show, but more or less for the reason it gives me the chance to glance at Diva Search runner-up Leyla a couple of times per week.

I used to LOVE the show. But now they have turned it into a circus. When the contestants bring a group of people in the audience who chant for what seems like 5 minutes instead of letting the game continue. And then they have a big sob moment
when one of the contestant's family members make a surprise appearence. It used to be a suspenseful game show, but now with all these interuptions it takes away from the suspense.
It's not bad at the first,but as the contestant gets to the riskier moments the foolish stuff starts.

Before=They picked the briefcases to open, then they took a short time in between to think about their decision, then they resumed.

Now= They pick the briefcases to open,then like 10mins later
(1min to think/9min of sheenanigans) they choose some more briefcases to open.

I feel the same way about ex-TPIR model Claudia (good old #1).

But the strut down the stairs ("Ladies, please") is the highlight of the show. The rest... well, it's not on when anything good is on....

I actually like what I consider to be the cruel element in the show in that after they make the deal with the banker they are shown what would have happened if they kept picking. The contestants who get less than the amount in their initial briefcase just look devastated - ie: the Naval Officer who listened to his kids and took $94K who could have had $400K and the meathead who wanted a Hummer who got $251K instead of the $750K that was in his case. Lighten up folks - you still got a nice chunk of change even after taxes & annuities.

Oh and since there are baser elements of the show to be considered, I also like Briefcase Girls # 9 & 10

I just dig (in a strictly het-male manner) a bald Howie Mandel with that *tiiiiiny* little goatee. I would probably die laughing if he'd just do "Bobby" while looking like that.

Has anyone won the million?

What is the largest anyone has won, or sold their case for?



Big Show: Why is he getting the Intercontinental Title shot and not me?
RVD: Ahhh...maybe 'cause you're a tool.
Big Show: Look. I am 7'2". I am 500 pounds. I'm a giant.
RVD: Oh ok. You're a giant tool.

AFAIK, only one player worldwide has won the top prize in the game, and that was in Australia for AU$200K.

I know that people have dealed on UK DoND before showing their case, and they've held the top prize of 250K.

US-wise, I think the top deal has been around $420K or so, and as shown last Friday the top case held has been $750K.

Just so I know, am I the only one who watches the show just to cheer *against* the contestants? At first the show annoyed me and my friends, but since adopting that philosophy, we're enjoying Deal or No Deal a WHOLE lot more.

I think there's a point where if someone presses their luck a bit too hard, then yeah -- they're rootable against. That, or stupid little tricks like "the power" that invariably ends up with you taking an $8 deal.

I don't recall correctly, but I think someone won $500k during a week where they elevated the top prize to 1.5, then 2 then 3 million dollars.

No.They walked through the prize winnings during Monday's show, and the top giveaway was like 419K

But I can't find a ref on the web to that....

I don't watch the show, but http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deal_or_No_Deal_(USA) has some stats listed. The wiki discussion page seems to have all the information about which cases were opened or something, but I can't make heads or tails of it without knowing how the game works (which I don't really care to do).



In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Add me and my family to this list, from perhaps the second time we saw this show.

I will add, however, that I like Howie Mandel in this role. I was doing some remodeling and found an old tape of him with the long curly hair, the "hand bag", and of course the bit where he inflated the rubber glove over his face. Its a shame that a good chunk of the audience for Deal never saw him do this.

And Howie is hoping that a good chunk of his audience never sees "Walk Like A Man".....

Last night one of the contestants said he was going to use his winnings to buy his little girl (who was, of course, in attendance) a pony. He got down to about 4-5 cases to open and $75,000 and $200,000 as the biggest prizes left. The banker offered him $44,000 and a PONY in exchange for his case. I laughed. What a low blow. He had no choice but to take the deal.

Of course, Howie opened up the guy's case to reveal $200,000.

Whether or not he ever would have gotten to the last case we'll never know, but that was absolutely a low blow. And I loved it. Can you imagine what that guy's life would have been like had he said "No Deal" and they turn the pony around and walk it out of there, then he ends up having to take a $750 deal?

I hope they do more "Screw with your head" stuff like that. Something like the last offer being $200,000 and then for the next (better offer) one Howie says "The banker is worried. He's now offering $15,000... and the kidney that your wife needs!"

I was wondering how long it would take Saturday Night Live to do a spoof on Deal or No Deal.

They did a great job, and I admit I was pretty much just like Antonio Banderas the very first time I watched the show.

Just so you know, you can go online to get eps of UK's DoND and Aussie's DoND.

After watching all three, Noel Edmonds > Howie > Andrew O'Keefe.

IF it goes syndie (and it will, as long as the ratings stay where they are NBC will take this syndie -- see: The Weakest Link), if they are able to take elements of both UK and Aussie DoND and mix it in with our current game, I think it can surpass syndie Millionaire's ratings (around a 3.7 or so nationwide in overall HH).

I don't care if they only keep a few models for syndie, as long as they're Anya, Jill and Claudia. The rest? Feh.
