Feb 17, 2010  •  Post A Comment

In an extensive article about how the NBC owned-and-operated stations are rejiggering their daytime schedules to improve their ratings, TVNewscheck is reporting that some shows will be dumped and some added.  

According to the report: "At the end of this season, the NBC O&Os are unloading NBCU game show ‘Deal or No Deal’ (although that has not been confirmed) and Warner Bros.’ low-rated talk show ‘Bonnie Hunt.’ "

The article also says, "In addition to ‘Ellen’ and "Nate [Berkus,]"  NBC Local Media a few months ago picked up NBCU’s off-cable hour ‘Real Housewives.’ It will likely add a topical newsmagazine that the NBC O&Os are developing in conjunction with the team behind NBCU’s ‘Access Hollywood.’ "
