When do the streaming versions of the show appear online?

I'm not getting good reception on my antenna, so I'm missing over the air broadcasts. Until I fix that, I've been expecting to see streaming versions of the show on Paramount+ and/or CBS.com on the evenings of the days they've aired, but no dice. What's the usual cycle?

CBS.com only uploads new episodes.  Once they're there, they stay for the rest of the season, but they always get pulled shortly before the next season premiere, and unfortunately, we hit that point with Season 51 a couple of days ago.

Don't worry -- once the new shows start airing, they'll start getting uploaded again around 6:00 P.M. Eastern the day of broadcast.

Forgive me if I'm forgetting something, but wasn't that in Season 50?
My bad, the 50th anniversary special popped in my head as a primetime episode that premiered at a time other than 8, but of course that was 50 not 51.

Thank you! In my archive I wrote 8.PM for 50th Special. I Correct it.
So I did help you at least, even if it wasn't actually what you were really asking for!

Five.

tpirstats is a great resource for general stats questions like these.

Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

Thanks for your answer, Steve. I was looking at a schedule that suggested the season started on the 19th and worried that I'd missed the premiere. Glad I didn't miss it!

I have a question about the 10 year rule. Does it apply to the contestants who only make it to Bidderís Row and donít get to play a pricing game or just to those who play a pricing game?
