Morning Buzz for September 14, 2011
Good morning, everyone. Thanks for sticking with us yesterday during the lack of updates. It’s incredibly busy around here and there wasn’t anything giant. However, we’ve got a few small stories this morning to kick off your Wednesday.
*Millionaire fans: be sure to check out host Meredith Vieira on Live with Regis and Kelly this morning (typically 9:00AM ET). Check your local listings. She’s there to promote the 10th season of the quiz show currently airing in syndication. From the clip I saw Regis had a funny reaction to the new format last year. Let’s see what happens this time.
*Speaking of Millionaire, the crew has restarted their “Backstage Pass” feature, showing fans videos of highlights or rare behind the scenes look at the show. The first of the season is a look at highlights from the 9th season. Check it out.
*Let’s Make A Deal has been updating a producer’s blog recently which seems to have been hidden until a tweet went out yesterday. Little details are being let out, including details on bigger cash and prizes. The most interesting thing to me? Let’s Make A Deal celebrates its 500th episode this season in 2012. Congratulations to them.
*Channel 4′s Deal or No Deal is going live. For two weeks at a date announced soon the Noel Edmonds hosted show will pick its contestants live and it could be you, if you’re in the United Kingdom. You won’t know you’ll be playing until you’re in the game. Sounds like a cool gimmick. We’ll give you more details when they’re out.
*MTV debuted a new game show this week called The Substitute. It airs daily at 4:30PM ET. It’s another surprise on-location game show where unsuspecting students find out their substitute teacher is actually a game show host and they’ll be playing challenges to win up to $5,000.
*No confirmed word what this is yet, but a new family game show is casting for contestants. They need a family of both parents and kids aged 8-16 who live in Los Angeles. You can win up to $10,000 so it’s looking like it’s for a cable network. If this fits your bill click here to check out the casting notice.
