The hit game show that was broadcast on NBC from 2005 to 2009 is coming back later this year with Mandel back at the helm. “Our primetime programs, with their focus on business and money, strive to be both entertaining and instructive,” CNBC chairman Mark Hoffman said in a statement. “Shows like The Profit and Shark Tank are built around high stakes and high rewards. Those same elements live at the heart of Deal or No Deal, which is why we believe it to be a perfect fit.” Several future celebrities got their first break on Deal or No Deal as briefcase girls, including Chrissy Teigen, Meghan Markle and Real Housewives of Atlanta's Claudia Jordan.
