Deal or No Deal

I don’t think it was a flop. Didn’t it average 600k+ metro. Which is a good figure. Given shows like MasterChef, Lego & Idol are getting 600-800k nationally

I think only reason there wasn’t more seasons was due to the lawsuit

Not really anything to write home about. It’s a waste not trying anything new. It will be grant overkill and one hour episodes will be too long and boring. Not sure this is the strategy they need. This is a terrible idea.

Likely commissioned for two reasons, they’re buoyed by the ratings success they’ve had in growing the timeslot somewhat, and it’s much easier and cheaper to commission longer Primetime episodes of a show already in production when they’ve got holes to fill later this year now. A little short sighted IMO.

good way to kill the format. Looking at ratings, it’s almost beating The Project now even though it’s in the less desirable timeslot.

Just like the $12 Million Month of Deal or No Deal in 2004.

Why isn’t the show rating higher this week

Because most people like me watch Seven and Nine News.

Last Night on the Deal with Grant Denyer, A Pregnant Woman having a Baby and his Partner Sold Briefcase #16 at the Right Time for $10,000. The Banker gave them a Hair-Raising Challenge to Earn an Extra $800.

The $100,000 Top Prize was Behind Briefcase #21 Held by Emily.

Weirdly, 10 have put the wrong episode up on 10play for yesterday. Just went to watch it but its not there

EDIT: Looking at their socials, it looks like they have put Tuesday’s ep up as Wednesdays

I like the idea of celeb specials but not for primetime. Just do a celeb one each Monday at 6pm for the usual 30 minutes.

Another Great Game on the New Dealadrome with Grant Denyer with Contestant Stephanie Mammose picking Briefcase #8 which had the $75,000. However, Her Instincts were Spot-On when She Knocked Out the Smaller Amounts during the Rounds Including the Monkey. Pushing the Banker Right at the Corner and Guaranteed to Leave with No Less than $40,000. Stephanie Mammose Struck a Deal with the Banker for $57,500.

The Top Prize of $100,000 was behind the Starting Briefcase and it was on Briefcase #1.

Is it possible to have sports superfans in the audience for these specials?

10 were casting for sports superfans to hold the briefcases., I would assume they would be looking for similar people for the studio audience.
