Miss America'Miss America' has booked a three-year deal with ABC that will bring the beauty pageant back to network television for the first time since 2004.
According to the AP, ABC plans to air next year's competition live on Jan. 15.
The news should come as a sigh of relief to fans of the longrunning pageant, which was dropped by TLC in March, despite a relatively decent performance in the ratings.
'Miss America' has shuffled across numerous channels over the years, including NBC, CBS and CMT.
This is just the latest pageant renewal in recent months. In March, NBC signed a three-year deal with the Miss Universe Organization to continue broadcasting the 'Miss Universe' and 'Miss USA' pageants.
'Miss America' will celebrate its 90th anniversary in January.
