I have just received word that my local ABC affiliate WRIC did NOT renew "Deal or No Deal" for a second season, and no other Richmond, VA affiliate will pick the show up. That means that I will be relegated to doing that show on Tuesday nights only when the Tuesday MyNetworkTV game show block begins with "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?" in about a month from now. Additionally, "Family Feud" will not air in Richmond for the second season in a row. No word yet on "Millionaire", but I doubt that will air in Richmond again.
Speaking of "5th Grader", when it starts out on CMT, there will be a Country Music Stars week.
