Next week will be the second annual Salute of Champions Week! I have chosen the best players from all sorts of game shows and put them into 25 slots. I will announce those from #25-16 on Monday, #15-11 on New Year's Day, #10-6 on Wednesday, and the top five, including the 2007 Grand Champion, on Thursday. In addition to all that, we have:

Deal or No Deal: The second Million Dollar Mission gets underway. On January 6th, there will be a two-hour 70s/80s themed episode. Will the $1,000,000 be won this time out?

American Gladiators: The famous weekly syndicated series best known for being hosted by Mike Adamle is back on NBC with Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali leading the way! The series begins with a two-hour episode on January 6th after "Deal or No Deal"!
