I like Dice Game but I winced as soon as she bet lower on the second number. With 21xxx known, I was pretty sure it was set up to be a six. Felt predictable with how Dice Game's usually set up, y'know?

I loved the left-in bit with the knob breaking off in Vend-O-Price. Drew was even clever with his quip about games "not being made like they used to".

Is this the first daytime playing of Punch with this color scheme? It looks really sharp, particularly the new distribution sign.

Looking forward to Hot Seat tomorrow, but can the next pricing game not be covered in silver, maybe? It's better than the pink and cyan days of yore, but the set's got enough silver as it is.

It's always nice to see spontaneous moments of humor like the lever breaking in Vend-O-Price - those are the types of humor that should be left in, not forced Emmy gags.

Speaking of Vend-O-Price, what an awful prize. Offering a "trip" to LA is bad enough already, but the accessories just seemed tacked on to get the prize past the $5,000 minimum. (and I would have lost there thanks to overanalyzing things...thought it would be the granola since it was organic)

Dice Game was played excellently - going higher on the last digit was a very smart move considering the car had no paint & fabric protection to screw up the last digit. It's just a shame that Karine ended up with a very unlucky roll on the third digit.

Very awkward editing present throughout the entire Dice Game segment (and in 1 Wrong Price, to a lesser extent).

It was also nice to see them somewhat break from the 2P with a luxury car showcase formula today. (that Prius looked awful though with the random splotches of green)

The knob breaking off in Vend-O-Price?! That was hilarious!!!! I really do like the way Punch-A-Bunch looks now. How about the borders on the 1 bid displays?

The knob moment during Vend-O-Price was definitely genuinely funny and Drew was at his best playing off it. Too bad it was followed by quite the painful Dice Game loss.

I didn't like Punch a Bunch's makeover at first, but it's growing on me. It looked better today for some reason.

Vend-O-Price breaking was hilarious, particularly because Drew finished breaking the knob himself.

Jack looked for all the world like he was going to knock over the Range Game board when he tackled Drew.

I can't believe they actually showed the Rainbow Wheel.

Is this the first daytime playing of Punch with this color scheme? It looks really sharp, particularly the new distribution sign.

It was used on two daytime shows last season (in fact, the old, acid-trippy color scheme hasn't appeared since the specials), but it is the first show with the repainted frequency chart.

And yes, the board really does look a hell of a lot better now.

Why not? They did during season 40.

I'm gonna guess I couldn't believe it then, either. :)
