Deal or No Deal is a long-running game show that's been airing in various incarnations since 2000. However, four pilot episodes for one rejected version of the game was brought to ABC in 2004.

Differences and Reception

According to one review of the pilot, the show was slightly different compared to the NBC version, including it having 26 contestants who would compete against each other to be chosen by the host (Patrick Kielty) to win the grand prize. Additionally, the ABC version also included a "lame musical package" that the reviewer claimed felt more fitting in something like Family Challenge than this show. The final contestant won a prize of $250,000, but it's unknown if the contestant was ultimately paid on account of the show not airing.

Another photo of the pilot.

Aside from the ABC executives not thinking it was good enough to air and the reviewer's opinion, the audience themselves were also reportedly horribly disinterested in what was going on.[1]

Availability

While a tape or DVD with at least one episode is confirmed to exist[2], this has not been put online and none of the episodes are currently readily accessible to the public in any form.
