Miss America Loses Home

Looks like Miss America has been evicted.

The cable channel TLC has announced they will not renew their contract to continue airing the Miss America Pageant.

The pageant has jumped to different homes throughout its lifespan.  NBC aired it for 30 years, then ABC for 9 – until they dumped it in 2005.  CMT had it for the next two years.  Then TLC took over in 2007.

Even though this year’s show was up 28% over last year (4.52 million vs. 3.54 million), it’s still peanuts compared to the 60s/70s, where it would average 20 million viewers.
