Reelz Picks Up Miss USA

The Reelz network is going to broadcast the Miss USA 2015 pageant after NBC dropped it because of co-owner Donald Trump.

Fans of the Miss USA pageant will be able to watch the Miss USA 2015 competition on Reelz. Earlier this week NBC has cut the business relationship with Donald Trump including the broadcast of the Miss USA pageant.

The breakup happened over Trump's recent “derogatory” remarks about immigrants he made in his Presidential campaign. “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.” The network said in a statement. “To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC.”

Now The Reelz network decided to jump in and take over for NBC. Reelz will broadcast the Miss USA 2015 pageant as planned on Sunday July 12 at 8p ET/5p PT.

Reelz made no comment or reference to Donald Trump in their announcement of broadcasting his pageants.
