The Miss America Pageant is homeless no more. Dropped by ABC in 2004, then by Country Music Television this year, the pageant finally found a TV partner this week in TLC. The network inked a deal to air the pageant through 2010, along with a reality series preceding the 2008 pageant that will follow the preparations of the 52 contestants. (I sure hope there's a "What Not to Wear" tie-in.)
TLC seems like a better fit for the pageant than CMT did, but since the broadcast version of Miss America basically fell off the map once ABC dropped it three years ago, I'm wondering if anybody will be watching when the competition airs in January. Are you over Miss America? Or does the new TV deal make you curious to check it out?
