NBC will segue from contestants taking their chances on the ice and snow to contestants taking their chances on numbered suitcases this week as it revives the December hit Deal or No Deal, with host Howie Mandel. The show will air this week each night at 8:00 p.m., then become a fixture at 8:00 p.m. on Mondays beginning March 6. The network has vowed not to over-expose it as ABC did with Who Wants to Be a Millionaire six years ago. "I think everybody in the business learned a lesson about Millionaire," David Goldberg, president of Endemol USA, the show's producers, told today's (Monday) USA Today. "You've got a game show that seems to be viable, but if you get piggish, you'll burn it out. In discussions with NBC, they seem to aware of that possibility."
