Miss America just got a 3-year pickup from ABC! Finally, I think it deserves to be on network television VS the Kate Gosselin network known as TLC. Sam Haskell, the chairman of the Miss America Organization said, “We were given a chance to re-brand, to keep what was traditional but make ourselves more today, and I think we’ve done that…We’re now back with a lot of strength and back to show everyone that Miss America is the American tradition. It’s a pop icon.”
Miss America will be 90 next year, and what a better way to celebrate than to put a traditional pageant back on network TV. I probably won’t be watching, but I know this will make my Grandma very happy…she has a hard time finding programing on the high channels on her cable box.
