Miss America Is Homeless... Again

After just a few years, TLC has pulled the plug on its deal to broadcast the Miss America Pageant. “Our three-year deal has concluded and we have chosen not to renew. We wish the Miss America Organization well,” said the network, which picked up the pageant from CMT in 2008. Over the past decade or so, the show’s ratings have dwindled, and it remains to be seen which network will next take on the struggling franchise.
