Miss America begging to come back to TV

The country isn't that interested in beauty pageants anymore. The Miss America pageant only drew 9.8 million viewers in 2004 leading ABC to dump the annual catwalk for 2005. Now the show is looking for a TV home and is using the William Morris agency to sell it. Fear Factor had lead-in episodes for Miss USA but those stunts have actually had higher ratings than the show itself. Some folks would rather see an end to Miss America than have the contestants eat cow intestines or hold their breath in a box filled with scorpions. We agree.
