Miss America lands at TLC


The Miss America Pageant has yet another television home, after CMT passed on continuing its airing of the annual pageant. The crown now moves to Discovery Communications’ TLC, at least for the next three years. The new package includes a reality series leading up to the live pageant, January 26, 2008, airing live from Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. There was no disclosure of financial details, but Miss America Organization Chairman Sam Haskell called it a "new multi-million dollar partnership."
