    ABC's The Mole Becomes a Free Agent

    ABC reality game show The Mole is now a free agent, says Variety. When the network's option to produce more episodes of the series came up recently, ABC told producers it wasn't ready to commit to more "Mole" just yet, and let its option expire.

    The Stone Stanley Entertainment-produced game just wrapped its fourth cycle on ABC (the last two featured celebrities) once again scoring solid ratings. Celebrity Mole: Yukatan ranked first in adults 18-34 (tied with Law & Order) and improved ABC's 10 p.m. Wednesday average by a hefty 43%.

    Stone Stanley execs and their reps at WMAWMA are meeting with other broadcast outlets, shopping the show as a reliable adults 18-34 magnet. One executive was surprised to hear it's on the market. Given ABC's lack of major hits, "you'd think they'd be treating that show like it was 'Dynasty,'"

    well, whatshisname the host now has a show on CNN or MSNBC so he is pretty well locked out from coming back to host another season.

    Well Armad Rashad (sp?) host this show about people that do stunts (or something like that) and he continues to host celebrity mole. ( )

    I would love to see them go back to the regular mole. celebrity mole was fun but it is a game that i would love to play.

    I think if it were promoted correctly and put in a better time slot it would do much better. ABC never really did much for it.

    John, anything we can do to make sure it stays on the air somewhere?

    Anderson Cooper will not return to do the Mole. He's trying to be a "serious newscaster" on CNN, and has said as much.

    I'm REALLY hoping that CBS picks up the franchise. My luck, it'll be FOX, and they'l screw it up.

    That's a real shame about Anderson Cooper.

    This show would be a natural on CBS. Can you imagine the Fox version? They'd be bringing in hunks halfway through the game or find some inane twist.

    I really like the celeb versions of the Mole...they pick people with major personality and humour that is fun to watch.I original Mole was good but I have to admit I didn't follow the whole thing cause it really didn't hold my attention the way the celeb version has.
