'Deal or No Deal' Gets Syndicated For Daily Run Minus Million Dollar Prize

'Deal or No Deal' will coming to a TV near you each weekday this fall.

Producers of the game show have announced that they've reached a deal on a syndicated half-hour long version of the show that will also be hosted by Howie Mandel, with the models, the banker and the briefcases, of course. Players won't have a shot at $1 million prize that's possible in the hour-long edition, but it will offer a $500,000 daily prize.

Mandel will also continue to host the hour-long 'Deal or No Deal', which was NBC's most-watched show last season, averaging more than 11 million viewers.

"My wife could not be more thrilled to have me out of the house and at work Monday through Friday," joked Mandel.

Even at the risk of watering-down the franchise, the syndicated version isn't a bad idea, especially if it speeds up the gameplay and dramatic pauses -- something that can certainly get tiresome in the hour-long edition.
