Closed captioning plugs
« on: November 26, 2018, 09:12:50 PM »
What’s the need for the CC plugs when there is regular commercial breaks. before season 28 there wasn’t any on the show. ABC dont have them in any of their daytime shows. And TPIR is not syndicated just wondering

TPIR must be a very profitable show for CBS than 2 CC plugs is redicolus though. Maybe the show could take the products that are used in the commercials and use them in GP games to give the show more airtime

Daytime TV is making less money, not more. If CBS doesn’t take certain measures to maximize profits, they could come under fire from shareholders. Becoming part of the world’s fifth-largest entertainment company comes at a price. And I imagine advertisers are willing to spend far more on a full-fledged commercial than for a few seconds of prize copy.

I’d love to see what Drew could do with 44 mins of runtime, but that genie left the bottle a long, long time ago. It ain’t coming back.

Also, I can’t imagine the reason we don’t see many sponsored GPs anymore is because the show wouldn’t LIKE to display sponsored GPs. That’d be on the sponsor’s end.

Monty Hall, in an interview with emmytvlegends.org, more or less laid out how sponsored products worked with Let's Make a Deal and it stands to reason it works similarly with Price. Simply put, if an item costs $300 but a copy read only costs $50, you'd have to show that item 6 times before it would be paid off.

ABC could be footing the bill for captioning whereas CBS isn't as willing, leaving it up to the programs themselves.
