Can you name the winner of the Miss America pageant from last year? Of course you can't and neither can I. In fact the only Miss America winner I can name is Vanessa Williams, who won in 1984. So who killed the Miss America pageant? I have no idea but who ever it was did a great job of it.
For decades September was the month the Miss America pageant aired on NBC and was broadcast from its then home Atlantic City, New Jersey. This year the pageant airs not in September but in January, tonight, and on cable TV's TLC. It's home is no longer Atlantic City, it's now Las Vegas.
So did you know it was coming on tonight?
Anyway I suppose with all of the reality shows and other craziness on TV it's really hard for Miss America to compete. Then again all it takes is a little bit of controversy and the Miss America pageant may make a comeback.
