Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 ... See full summary »
The United States' version of "Deal or No Deal" was based on the Netherlands game show that had premiered in 2002. The main objective of the game was identical: Select a case containing a mystery cash amount, then - after being asked to narrow the field of cases by a certain number at various intervals - decide whether to take a cash buyout offered by an unseen "banker" ("Deal") or reject the offer and continue eliminating cases ("No Deal"), knowing he/she could win the grand prize of $1 million ... or far less. Each new game begins with 26 cases, each randomly distributed and held by a sexy model. The contestant chooses one case, which is placed at his/her contestant's podium.

How can anyone watch this drivel. There is no point to it. At least games like the Weakest Link and others take some skill. This game just goes to show how mindless TV is getting. This game requires absolutely ZERO skill. Seeing Howie Mandel sinking down to this form of self promotion is sad. The only thing appealing about this show is the models and I guess that is the point. The networks must think that all men only watch television to see pretty women and hope for a wardrobe malfunction. What do they think of women then, that good old Howie will make their knees quiver. The reason games like Millionaire were so popular is people like being intellectually challenged. I do not believe for a second the claims NBC are making about this show. They are a struggling network with absolutely nothing to offer viewers anymore. A sad era for the network that brought us Cheers, Seinfeld, Fraser and Friends
