    Yesterday I saw a commercial for a new apparently syndicated version of Deal or No Deal on our local tv station starting September 8except it is 5 days a week and i think only half an hour. Does anyone know anything about it. It included Howie Mandel as the host but didn't show anything about the show. If it is goingto be Howie Mandel and the same models and banker they will be busy if they are going to be doing the night time version 2 or more times a week plus the syndicated version 5 days a week.

    Saw the first episode of the syndicated version which began today.
    Notable differences: One-half hour. 22 cases, $500,000 top prize. The five highest cases are $50K/$75K/$100K/$250K/$500K. The contestants hold all the cases on stage and they don't move closer together after each round. Their name is also displayed below each of the cases. Only two models, Patricia and Tameka. They spin The Deal Wheel and the numbered slot where the gold ball lands determines which of the 22 contestants is going to play. The models also close up and take the cases away after they are opened. The contestant that was picked can keep the case he was holding, or swap with another case at the beginning of the game. There are no friends/family, but a couple of the other contestants not playing can be asked for their opinion on taking the offer or not. No fluff --- No special guest appearances, no special bank offers. The number of cases picked each round goes 5-5-4-2-2-1-1-1. The big difference is that with six cases left, you have to pick two in the syndicated version instead of just one case in the primetime version.

    [For the week of 10/20/08, the rounds went 5-5-4-3-2-1-1, so one round shorter. With eight cases left, three is picked, and with five cases left, two must be picked.]

    One other thing about the syndicated version --- people seem to be taking greater risks than in the primetime version. Partly because the offers are so low, and partly because of the huge disparity in the top amounts --- 10K/25K/50K/75K/100K/250K/500K vs. 100K/200K/300K/400K/500K/750K/1M in the primetime version.

    Another difference --- special theme weeks, where all the contestants have something in common. So far:

    Baby On Board [week of 9/22/08] All pregnant contestants.
    Small Business Owners [9/29/08] $10K case was replaced with $10K in HP Small Business Equipment.
    Evian [10/6/08] The $1000 case was replaced with $1000 plus year's supply of Evian bottled water.
    Halloween [10/27/08] Contestants dressed in costume. Tameka and Patricia as a black cat and french maid.
    Military [11/17/08] All contestants were in military uniform.
    Holiday Wish [11/24/08] The $10K case was replaced with a $10K gift certificate from Sears.
    Newlywed [01/05/09] All contestants were newlyweds. Both played as a team so 44 people onstage.
    Splenda [01/12/09] Splenda Sweeten The Deal: $10K added to next bank offer when $10K case is opened.
    Twins [02/02/09] All contestants were twins. Both played as a team so 44 people onstage.
    Lucky Listerine [03/02/09] The $7500 case was replaced with a Listerine case (Vacation trip worth $7500). Firefighters [03/09/09] All contestants were firefighters. Tameka and Patricia were in firefighter outfits.
    Teachers [03/23/09] All contestants were teachers. The money board had a chalkboard and eraser.
    Visine-A [03/30/09] The $7500 case was replaced with a Visine-A case ($7500 in outdoor activities + cash).
    College [05/11/09] All contestants were college students.
    Lottery Winners [07/13/09] All contestants were state lottery scratcher winners.


    Turns out Syndicated Deal or No Deal is actually better than I thought it would be, despite having four less high amount cases. Faster paced, with very little dead time...

    Yeah, there will probably will be less primetime shows. So no more three-shows-a-week anymore...

    Three weeks into the syndicated Deal or No Deal we almost had the big winner...
    Chelsea on 9/26/08 turned down the $176K bank offer with three cases left and $500K/$100K/$75K on the board.
    Chelsea took the $275K deal with the $500K and $100K cases left in play, but she had the $500K in her case #21.

    Chelsea is the highest winner to date so far ($275K) and turned down the highest offer ($176K).

    A couple close calls:

    Sabrina on 11/5/08 took the $96K deal with four cases left but the final two cases would have been $250K and $500K. Sabrina had the $500K in her case.

    Pat on 2/9/09 took the $86K deal with four cases left but the final two cases would have been $100K and $500K. Pat had the $500K in his case.

    The syndicated version of Deal or No Deal is a fast-paced version of the primetime version, but apparently not fast enough. Seems that a change has been made this week in the syndicated version of Deal or No Deal. The number of cases picked each round used to be 5-5-4-2-2-1-1-1, but this week it's been 5-5-4-3-2-1-1, so one round shorter.

    The differences here is that with eight cases left, the contestant has to pick *three* cases instead of two. That hasn't really been an issue so far, as only 2 of 30 contestants in the first six weeks took the deal with six cases left. What does matter, though, is that with five cases left, the contestant has to pick *two* cases, meaning taking the deal with four cases left is no longer possible. In games with no safety net, I expect to see more people playing it safe and taking the deal with five cases left. This is kinda a bummer, since people had been taking more risks and going farther in the syndicated version than in the primetime version. Oh well...

    [This appears to have been a one-week thing, as they went back to the old format since then]

    The format change might have impacted the first four games this week. A couple contestants took early offers, one with five cases left and the other with eight. The other two opened the highest remaining case because they were unable to stop with four cases left.


    -------------------

    George (Idaho) on 7/17 got a $20 bank offer with six cases left and $200 as the highest case. George won the $200 in his case #22.

    Hardly any models anymore, what's the point of watching / taping it during the day. It would have been better if it was fast at night, but it's not. Instead, I just tape it, and forward through the banker boring parts, and of course the commericals. I don't see nothing wrong with only giving $500,000 away instead of a million to make the game show go faster. Maybe add 5 more cases to 30 too while you are at it.

    Well, now that Deal or No Deal has lost the Friday night slot, watching the daytime version is the only way to get my DOND fix, particularly since there was a four-week gap in primetime episodes...*sigh*

    Besides playing faster, the other thing I like about the daytime version is that people tend to take more risks with four cases or less. Just in the past couple of days, both contestants declined the bank offer with three cases left and $500 or less as the second-highest case...

    I had been watching the new abridged version and found it less boring than the prime time network version mainly because it is shorter, faster and with less bull... The only thing I missed are the models. My carrier, Dish Network, was showing it in a new channel (3 along with other game shows but last month it went out the air with no explanation what so ever, so that was the end of it. Not that I am going to cry.

    It's not locally syndicated in your area on one of the OTA stations?
    I'm surprised...

    I really do not know. But like I said I am not going to cry. Deal can go back to England along with Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, Idol, etc.

    Actually, Deal or no Deal belongs to the Netherlands, as it was the first country to establish the gameshow.

    So this syndicated version of Deal Or No Deal has theme weeks like Wheel Of Fortune has? That's cool and I hope that the syndicated remix of Deal Or No Deal will be great but neither of my TV stations carry it in my area. When GSN starts showing Deal Or Deal on their lineup will some of the syndicated Deal Or No Deal episodes be shown?,

    Yup, there are theme weeks on the syndicated version. Sometimes the contestants have something in common. Or there's a sponsor for the week with a special prize on the board. Makes the show more interesting on theme weeks...

    From what I read, GSN is showing the hour-long primetime version, not the daytime syndicated one...

    I finally got to see the syndicated remix of Deal Or No Deal for the very first time and let me tell you. I LOVED it and this new version of DOND is so much better than the prime-time version and I LOVED the fact that it's a real fast version and the fact that the contestants have the chance to be briefcase holders and that makes the show more fun to watch. And Howie Mandel is just so fun as ever and sometimes his offers to the banker are full of humor and I especially liked that the syndicated version of DOND has added the Deal Wheel and I think it's a wonderful addition to the game. All and all this is the best version of Deal Or No Deal ever produced for syndication and I have a great feeling it will last for years to come. Now I find it odd that GSN didn't have the chance to add this version of Deal Or No Deal to their lineup rather than the regular version but maybe it will be a hit on GSN sometime,

    Yeah, DOND is also shown on MyNetwork TV stations Tuesday nights.
    I hope it stays around too, but I heard the ratings weren't great...

    The ratings weren't great in Season 2 and as a result, the Syndicated DOND has been officially cancelled.


    That's too bad, I liked the syndicated version more than the primetime version.

    What a shame that Deal Or No Deal's syndicated version got cancelled because I really LOVED it when I saw it for the very first time and it was a great remix of the original DOND. Now with the syndicated version of DOND cancelled I pray GSN will air it on their channel so I can see it. Will GSN now show both versions of Deal Or No Deal?,

    The only thingI would've changed on the syndicated version is make 22 models instead of the Deal Wheel. But now there are no more new episodes of Deal at all. Although it deserves more episodes, I don't think we will see new Deal for a while, if ever.
