Pretty lackluster show, I thought Its in the Bag was going to be won, I thought for sure the cereal was the correct choice for the $16,000 bag.

Amazing win on Cliff Hangers, those wins are so fun and amazing to watch.

Good call stopping on the $8,000 bag; I would've lost the same way as well.

Switch? was evil, though, and Line em Up suffers another case of not quite being there ($510 away in this case).

I thought for sure that the Yodely Guy was going to fall, but he stopped at the last possible moment, which makes for entertaining TV.

He didn't stop, he went for the $16,000 and lost. I thought for sure the cereal would be $4.49. Very Grinchy like way to come back after Christmas!

Line em Up- The 2nd digit was obvious but the 3rd was a toss-up and the 4th digit only the 0 could be ruled out, although 58 did look better than 78 for the price ending.

It's in the Bag:
I was somewhat torn between the beans and cream cheese for the first bag, but I was leaning more towards the beans.
Super easy second bag.
And I actually picked the cereal as the $7.99 bag.  I would've lost there.
I thought for sure at the end that the cereal would be $4.49 but alas, it wasn't.

Cliffhangers:
I was actually half expecting that edge of the mountain win.

Show in general:
I see they kinda went into budget mode today with no cars over $20k (unless the Fiat was over $20k with those options)

The 500 received a heavy price cut for the 2016 model year, and it did not go up much for 2017. Today's example, with two options, was probably right around $18,000.

Switch? was evil

I think you're going to be in the minority there, sir. -00 endings are pretty common for TVs, Stella McCartney is a very high-end designer, and it wasn't likely that five different purses were going to add up to a round number.

Bag, however, was very evil. Playing it first is usually a terrible idea, given its payout rate, and today was no exception.

Brutal first half. Second half was sort of okay, with the great Cliffhangers win.

When I went to the Fiat site, it said the price (not including the paint and fabric protection) was $14,740 (with a $1,500 discount called "California BC Lease Cash 71LH1"); without that, it was $16,240

Wow, such an amazing outcome in Cliffy! Really fun to see such close wins like that.

Also, a little tidbit for what it's worth: this is the first time it's been slotted 4th since 6/1/2016.
