Congratulations Roadgeek!

Very easy set-ups all around pretty much in this show except for Squeeze Play. Lucky $even couldn't have had a much friendlier price and only the third set of small prizes was somewhat tricky in 1/2 Off.

I didn't get to see the whole show yesterday, as it was interrupted on the West Coast from after the 3rd pricing game through the entire rest of the show for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's press conference :cry:

That makes two of us.  Note that this was a CBS interruption (complete with the counting-down eye), not a local one.

This isn't the first time a "special" was interrupted in the west for the remainder of the episode by the White House; a Breast Cancer special a few years ago was interrupted for an announcement about the government shutdown that started that day.

By Tiffany Making it on Stage, I believe that was a Record for the most people ( Kids and Adults ) to play one Pricing Game , Five

Painful Loss in Lucky Seven , Jennifer play it so well.
During 1/2 Off , why was George was allowed say Optimus Prime , but not allow to say Furby. They both are made by Hasbro.

Just a crap shoot, Furby the brand has a copyright, while the name Optimus Prime isn't?

Ok show, nice 4 wins for a special.
My favorite game is Clock Game and my least favorite is Switcheroo, because reasons.

Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

I really wish Lucky $even could have such nice setups outside of specials sometimes.

1/2 Off absolutely should not have been wiped out; the first two pairs of SPs were dead obvious.

Vend-O-Price was a bit odd to watch; the GPs weren't described until the vending machine had fully opened up.

Also, why exactly did they offer a trip for two in one of the showcases? That made no sense at all, especially when a trip for four was also featured in the same showcase.

(also, congratulations Adam!)

I like kids, don't get me wrong, but too many damn kids running around the set in this episode.  One could have gotten hurt by a prop, etc. 

I think the Mother's Day specials work better when the kids are a bit older or better to have Adult Daughters (18+) with their older Mothers.  I didn't get the impression that the kids were there to honor their moms - it felt like a back-to-school episode.
