Episode #8035K
« on: October 06, 2017, 01:44:01 PM »
I have friends who were in the audience for episode #8035K (the 12:30 taping on Thursday 7/20/17). They were originally told that the episode was going to air today (Fri 10/6/17). However, #8061K was shown instead, for a reason that is unknown at this time (per a message over on the Recaps forum.)

If/when http://www.priceisright.com/calendar/ and/or http://www.cbs.com/shows/the_price_is_right/airdates/66041/ are updated to indicate the new airdate for #8035K, could someone please reply to this post and let me know?

Thank you in advance.

The CBS.com Website has the dates Switched ( 8061 was showed today and 8035 is now being shown on October 23 )
The Price is Right Website still shows the old airdates.

The only reason I can think of the change, ATM , is because they probably offered a Trip to Las Vegas on that show.

That, or perhaps Card Game, whose motif now looks similar to the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign, was played.

Thanks...I just checked again and it's showing 8031 as scheduled for October 23rd. No sign of 8035.

No sign of 8035.

My Fault , I look at the number wrong.

I can't really see that being an issue since even though it has a Vegas-esque motif the game has no relation to Las Vegas otherwise. It was likely a trip to Vegas being offered.

Given that they've clearly gone out of their way to reschedule the 8031K (The Breast Cancer Awareness Month show), I'd guess that the original plan was for 8061K and 8035K to simply swap airdates.  I certainly can't say when it will air now, but I think speculating about the reason being anything in the episode is a little silly.

Yes. The whole reason for this scheduling mess is that they wanted to rebroadcast the Breast Cancer Awareness Month Show before the end of the month since it was severely preempted during it's first airing.

They probably wanted to air this show on a Monday from the start and looked for another free Monday opening. This Monday is out as it's the start of Dream Car Week. The following Monday is out for some reason. Possibly because they didn't want six straight episodes as specials. The 30th looks to be earmarked for the Mom's Day Out special, so it's out. That leaves the 23rd. Knowing what happens on the 23rd, they probably didn't want to postpone that show any further and decided to bump a different show this month to still air that one. Looks like 8035K was the unfortunate one chosen. Perhaps because of a Vegas trip, but I honestly think it was random. They didn't have to move 8061K up to air 8031K, they could've just postponed that one and aired it whenever, but like I said, what happened on that show was probably the reason they felt it should air ahead of 8035K.

As for when 8035K will air, my best suggestion would be to keep an eye on the schedule closer to Thanksgiving. For the last 3-4(?) seasons there's traditionally been a week of reruns following Thanksgiving (and now a Cyber Monday special). With any luck, they'll shove it there instead of holding it until the end of the season.

Something tells me that part of the reason why they are moving some shows up is to showcase Gridlock! a little more.
