I loved the show Deal Or No Deal when it premiered a few months ago. So I started watching it this week, but I must say I was a little disappointed.
The network has started putting more drama with the hand going to the button and not pressing it, talking more to the family, having at least one family/friend shout not to go for the deal, etc. And that is precisely the drama I don’t like about reality TV, though this is not so much that genre.
Give me pure and simple DOND with the only thing to evaluate is how likely are you going to bust in the next set of picks. That makes it interesting, and mathematically challenging.
I like the show, but I am not going to watch it anymore.
