    "Pageant officials have tried everything but bringing Bert Parks back from the dead to breathe some life into the old girl."

    It didn't seem to occur to them to broadcast the thing in HD, to at least attract the audience looking for HD programming to watch. This might have been a showcase - the swimsuit competition in HD, and the talent competition in DD 5.1.

    I love beauty pageants! Not for watching the women (although that's fun, that can be done elsewhere) but for the weirdness of it. I love the Q&A sessions the most I think.

    I wish they wouldn't broadcast it on a Saturday night though, but I guess they would lose money otherwise...

    I must be old fashioned, I still like to check out the women.

    I agree that Saturday night is a bad night, but instead of digging up Bert Parks I would amen an HD broadcast. [​IMG]

    I don't particularly, nor do I know anyone that does. I'd like to say it's a Canadian thing, but I don't know anyone who cares who Miss Canada is, in particular, either.

    I don't know what they could do to get interest back up.. combine Fear Factor and Survivor to determine the winner, maybe?

    I know a quick way to spice up the show and get viewers.

    Allow men in drag to compete.
