Bit of a boo-boo by the Sunday Telegraph today which suggests Deal or No Deal has been losing badly to Hot Seat.
Unfortunately, Deal hasn’t been up against Hot Seat since September 2013, ever since Million Dollar Minute moved in.
The headline referencing “Eddie Maguire” is also a typo (the copy correctly notes McGuire). At least Eddie will be happy with that rather youthful photo!
The idea that Million Dollar Minute, not Deal or No Deal repeats, is impacting on Seven News is correct. Nine was in a similar dilemma before it developed Hot Seat for the 5:30 slot.
TV Tonight has previously speculated Seven is developing a local version of The Chase potentially to replace Million Dollar Minute but this is yet to be confirmed.
