NBC is pulling its "Let's Make a Deal" revival off the air after three weeks.

The game show had been set to run through April 1, but the network changed its mind after Tuesday night's broadcast. The two remaining segments taped will be rescheduled for a later date, and network officials haven't closed the door on ordering more episodes.

NBC had planned to run the Billy Bush-hosted "Deal" on Saturday nights at 10 p.m., a low-pressure time slot on a night the network believed was ripe for growth.

But the network made a last-minute call to move "Deal" to Tuesdays at 8 p.m., forcing the series to face off against Fox's "American Idol" juggernaut. Not surprisingly, ratings weren't what NBC had hoped.

NBC will fill the 8 p.m. time slot with the special "Child Stars: Then and Now" next week and with a Three Stooges retrospective slated for April 1. No word yet on what will go into the timeslot after that.

The show could work on Saturdays at 10. But face it nothing other than live sex or executions of terrorists is going to beat Idol...

Actually, here's the pattern of NBC for Deal:

Saturday nights at 8p Central

Saturday nights at 7p Central (IMO, the best slot, because you'd get game leading out of game and Saturday night is a "safe" bet)

Tuesday nights at 7p Central.

Monkeys, I tell you. Programming chimps. Like Grimis said, the only thing that might work against American Idol is the aforementioned.

The "network officials haven't closed the door" statement might mean that they're still thinking about going syndie. I actually thought that last night's episode was the best out of all three, and that Billy might actually be getting better as the shows go along.

On Playboy tv or some other porn station, they should have as show where people audition to be porn stars. They already had a "real world" type of show.

If this is the stuff you see fit to share with other people, my soul shudders at the stuff you've found that's unfit for human consumption.... Way too much time on your hands (says the man who bothered to click on the damn link anyway).
