Deal or No Deal (commonly abbreviated as DoND) is the popular American version of the international game show of Dutch origin of the same name. The show was hosted by actor-comedian Howie Mandel, and premiered on December 19, 2005, on NBC. The hour-long show typically aired at least twice a week during its run, and included special extended or theme episodes. The show started its fourth season on August 25, 2008, after NBC's coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. A daily syndicated half-hour version of the show debuted on September 8, 2008 and continued for two seasons. Peter Abbay plays the Banker. The game is primarily unchanged from the international format: a contestant chooses one briefcase from a selection of 26. Each briefcase contains a cash value from USD$0.01 to $1,000,000. Over the course of the game, the contestant eliminates cases from the game, periodically being presented with a “deal” from The Banker to take a cash amount to quit the game. Should the contestant refuse every deal, they are given the chance to trade the first case - chosen before play - for the only other one left in play, and win whatever money was in the chosen case. Special variations of the game, including a “Million Dollar Mission” introduced in the third season, were also used, as well as a tie-in with a viewer “Lucky Case Game”. The show was a success for NBC, typically averaging from 10-16 million viewers each episode in the first season, although the subsequent seasons only averaged about 5-9 million viewers each episode. It has led to the creation of tie-in board, card, and video games, as well as a syndicated series played for smaller dollar amounts. The show went on hiatus in early 2009, and its Friday night time slot was replaced with Mandel's other series Howie Do It. It was announced on the show's official site that Deal or No Deal would return with new episodes on Monday, May 4. These remaining four were taped in September 2008, and aired on three consecutive Mondays, May 4, May 11, and the final two on May 18. On March 13, 2018, it was announced that CNBC would be reviving Deal or No Deal for another season, and will start airing in late 2018. Mandel will be returning as host and will be co-executive producer along with Scott St. John, who served in the role for the original series. Thirty one-hour episodes will be taped at Universal Orlando starting in July.
