First episode of season 45 that has not featured any of the 24 pricing games not yet played this season.  In other words, all six games have been featured already at least once this season, and in Lucky Seven's case, twice earlier this season.

Another breast cancer special that fails to pay any sort of tribute to Rod Roddy. Not surprising, of course...just disappointing. :cry:

Pretty easy setups all around, fittingly for a special like this, but too bad Heather wasn't wise to the usual "3rd digit high, 4th digit low" trick in Lucky Seven.

In the 2nd SCSD, Heather spins first, gets .40 combined with two spins, and luckily wins.

So my question for the statisticians out there:  Is that the lowest 2 spin total from a first spinner to advance to the Showcases??

It's called Scorpz. No need for these posts in future, thanks. It's one thing to note whenever it happens that every game has been played, but a daily update on this matter serves as posting just to post.

Not sure, but there is a picture in the golden gallery of a contestant winning with just 30 cents. Again, I'm not sure if they were the first spinner or not.

At the end of last week, there were 24 pricing games that hadn't been played yet.  Now...there are 24 pricing games that haven't been played yet.  That was kind of disappointing.

I can't decide whether or not Lucky $even was supposed to be won, but if nothing else, it certainly wasn't meant to be lost the way it was lost.

Man, was it weird to suddenly have Contestants' Row be pink again for a day after all these years.

This is kind of a weird thing to say, but I loved Drew's reveal of the double overbid.

I hate how L7 now even on a special, they are still fishing for a loss. I mean OK, most people will go low on 2nd digit, but that 8... L7 is a great game, but it has to be set up right. And Mike regime's has no idea how to set up most games with subtlety.

^ I don't see how that's odd to say at all. It was a brutal first DOB on the year, but with Drew botching these reveals sometimes, he did a good job this time.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

It was really unfortunate to see this episode end in a double overbid.

Is that the lowest 2 spin total from a first spinner to advance to the Showcases??

It's the lowest since a 30 cent win on February 10, 2015.

I never thought about that before. I suppose they could give him a mention and I do think it's important to know that men can get breast cancer also. He could be brought up to show this and to advocate going for mammograms as soon as possible, although maybe they don't want to bring him up since he didn't survive and the show is supposed to be celebrating survivors.

As for the issue with no not yet played games showing up today, aren't special episodes usually taped separately from the rest of the week they're shown? When was this taped compared to the previous two weeks of the season?

Two things I'd like to see in next year's special:

Tribute to Rod Roddy
A pink Cadillac (is pink even a stock color for Caddies?)

Today's show taped on August 29th, over a month after last week's shows taped (July 18-20), and 3 weeks after the season premiere (premiere week taped August 8-10). I know specials tend not to have the best lineups, but this was still pretty bad. Last year's NBCAM special had a much better lineup, and that one had Pay the Rent...

What does any of that have to do with scheduling the pricing games?

Hate to say it, but I don't think Rod will ever get a mention on the show. Just the same, Wheel ignores Chuck Woolery when it celebrates its anniversaries.

There's never really any acknowledgement of Johnny Olson either, probably because their target audience is too young to remember when he announced for the show.
