Some interesting news about Premiere Week, including the new game "Gridlock".

Looks like they finally redesigned the Barker Wall. Guess it's officially the Carey Wall now?

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

It should be interesting. Gridlock sounds like it'll be fun to watch.

I'm a little surprised they're making such a big to-do with premiere week to celebrate Drew's 10th season. There should certainly be a lot of money given away next week! Gridlock sounds like it could be an interesting game, hopefully it's at least better than Hot Seat. Also surprising to see Tim Allen among the special guests.

Also notice the Contestants' Row podiums became slightly brighter than the normal, except new silver rims.

I'm most interested in Next Friday's Show.
One of Next week's shows kinda spoiled what the lineup of games could be.

They look exactly the same as the ones from last season to me...

Trust me, the silver is a much darker and duller tone than last season.

I was really excited to read about all the fun gimmickry for season premiere week, until I saw the $10,000 bonus for every pricing game win. I hated when they tacked it on for Big Money Week, and I think it's just as awkward now. Weren't all the other payout boosts enough?

S46... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Is this the thread to speculate how the new game works?

Also, I want what's left of that cake in the pictures. Dibs on the Plinko Chip.
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.

Why not? Mods move this if you think it deserves its own thread.

What I and a few others were thinking...

There's three colors for the car. One gray, three blue, three orange. Our thought is that they spot you the first car which is the first digit in the car and it's up to you to guess the rest of the car with the blue cars (the next two digits) and orange cars (the last two digits).

So...say hello to Money Game's return to center stage! (and perhaps say goodbye to playings of Money Game)

Well, if Bonus Game and Shell Game can co-exist... ;)

For years, the show has been aching for another quick car game so they don't have to play Money Game, Lucky Seven, and That's Too Much so frequently. Without knowing exactly what it's timed at, I expect Gridlock to take some of the stress off of those three games.

So... is the fan consensus going to be to render the name of the game with or without the exclamation point? Before you answer, I will point out that on the earliest internal paperwork, That's Too Much was written with an exclamation point (it's right there in the middle of the game board, after all).

when I saw Gridlock was the new game,at first I thought it was a reworked Rat Race
