Will You Watch Miss America on TLC?

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?

Yes I will watch the Miss America Pageant, I always do. I think it is great that TLC has signed a deal to telvize the pageant. And I am sick of the reality shows on TV. So glad something good such as Miss America is coming to TLC.

I will definately be watching. Tired of watching all of the other stupid reality shows. I would rather see Miss America anyday. Bring it on!

These things are so old anymore so, nope, won't watch it.

It doesn't seem like TLC is a good fit at all. A tie-in after Miami Ink would be funny!

Even though I won't be watching, I'm glad they found a home.

i think america has outgrown pageants. the female role is so multi-faceted now, and pageant girls so limited.

No way, I hate pagents, they're so fake.

I never watch it. So it now being on TLC won't make a difference.

I didn't even know until just now that it wasn't on ABC anymore. Guess I'm pretty over it.

They've always seemed sort of pointless to me. ;/

I will probably watch some of's too long to hold my attention for the entire show. I usually like to catch the beginning and the end.

yeah i think tlc is a good station for them, but why not oxygen or lifetime? i kid, i kid. used to watch these when i was little because they fascinated me. now i'm like there are other ways to gain self-worth than parading in two-pieces for everyone. thank goodness i'm out of the phase of watching beauty pageants.

I hate pageants -- no offense to those who participate. I just hate them.

Definitely, more so because I know a contestant this year!

I won't be watching (unless there's a What Not to Wear tie-in, of course; Clinton + 50 pageant girls = :ROTFL:

It does seem like a better fitting network, but I'm still not interested.
