NBC's "Deal or No Deal" going SYNDICATION next Fall.

NBC's game show "Deal or No Deal" is headed to syndication, and its host will tag along for the ride.

The syndication unit of NBC Universal is taking the show to local stations for next fall, creating a half-hour version of the money-in-a-briefcase game to run five days a week. The show has already been sold to a number of NBC-owned stations -- including those in New York and Los Angeles, the country's biggest media markets -- and to other station groups as well.

Howie Mandel will host the syndicated version of the game, just as he does on NBC's prime-time series. The syndicated show will also keep its briefcase-toting models and use the same set as the prime-time game.

There will be a couple of changes: The top prize will be $250,000, as opposed to $1 million on the prime-time show, and each episode will be self-contained.

"Deal or No Deal" became a hit for NBC after premiering in December 2005, drawing up to 18 million viewers per episode in its first season.

Those numbers have faded in recent months, but the show is still a pretty solid performer for the network. The Wednesday edition of the show is averaging about 10 million viewers per week, while on Fridays it draws a little under 8 million.
