‘Deal or No Deal’ is coming back

CNBC is joining TV’s revival bandwagon, setting a pact with Endemol Shine North America for new episodes of the game show “Deal or No Deal.”

Howie Mandel will be back as host of the show that aired from 2005 through 2009 in primetime on NBC. CNBC said the show was scheduled to debut in the fourth quarter of this year. It’s unclear if the new “Deal” will be a nightly or weekly addition to the business news cabler’s primetime lineup.

“Our primetime programs, with their focus on business and money, strive to be both entertaining and instructive. Shows like ‘The Profit’ and ‘Shark Tank’ are built around high stakes and high rewards. Those same elements live at the heart of ‘Deal or No Deal,’ which is why we believe it to be a perfect fit,” said CNBC chairman Mark Hoffman. “Today’s announcement confirms our deep commitment to primetime, strengthening our line-up, by adding one of the most successful game shows of all time along with the popular, original host, Howie Mandel.”

Also, if you didn’t know, Prince Harry’s betrothed, Meghan Markle, was once one of the models holding a briefcase.

  • I was on “Deal or No Deal” in February 2010. More than eight years ago when I was young. I am now 82 years and still young and would love to revisit with Howie and crew and see if I can win again. The tryouts for the show took place in Connecticut at that time, visited the casino in the area, and won there so I am “on a roll”. Choose me and let’s show that a grandmother of 5 can still get it on.

    Looking forward to a positive reply. My best regards to the whole crew.
