CNBC is reviving Deal or No Deal with Howie Mandel returning as host
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.

Married with Children star recalls a young Meghan Markle growing up on the set
The Suits star’s dad, Thomas Markle, worked as a director and director of photography on the Fox sitcom. "Every day after school for 10 years, I was on the set of Married with Children, which is a really funny and perverse place for a little girl in a Catholic school uniform to grow up," Meghan Markle once told Esquire. "There were a lot of times my dad would say, 'Meg, why don't you go and help with the craft services room over there? This is just a little off-color for your 11-year-old eyes.’” Amanda Bearse, who played neighbor Marcy, on Monday remembered Meghan as a quiet, respectful kid on set. “He was so supportive and just really truly a lovely, lovely man,” Bearse said of her father. “I am not one bit surprised he grew such a lovely child.”
