We all know that the 6-7pm hour is a ratings disaster for 10. And had been for some time now. Lets face it, it is very hard to compete against both Seven and Nine’s News. But with the numbers heading towards SBS’ numbers, something does need to be done.
Will Deal or No Deal work at 6pm? Short term, perhaps. Medium to long term? Who knows. The show does need to revert back to a 30 minute daily show. Fast and quick. Remember, its just picking numbers 1-26 and opening up some briefcases. No need to drag it out to any hour.
The original version was once a week and an hour before it got its 5:30 slot in 2004, I don’t know when they dropped the opening quiz but at some point they did and would just select someone at random.
I suppose it could not hurt Ten to give it a try with another game show I always liked Deal or No Deal and I watch the American version a lot on Samsung TV Plus. I wonder if Beau Ryan could host this. I don’t think Ten have any talent left and if its Grant Denyer again I am going to scream.
