Even a Game Show based entirely on Luck, such as Deal or No Deal, still requires Skill.

I've wrestled with the concept of luck vs skill of the occasional Game show Like Deal or No Deal that is based 100% on luck. Watching Deal or No Deal and listening to Howie Mandel, the show makes a great point,  when a player decides to stop is a strategy and therefore requires some degree of skill.

Game Show Network revs up Deal or No Deal with back to back episodes.

Apparently Deal or No Deal is proving a popular game show on the Game Show Network as it is now on in back to back time slots in the mornings. Watching the show on a daily basis allows one to see the ebb and flow of the show dynamics over a full season.

A New Deal or No Deal reboot is scheduled for CNBC this fall.
