When will they air on CBS?  I hope to see Golden Road on one lineup and Triple Play on another.

I love this. I enjoyed the two most recent primetime specials- I wish they'd have the $1,000,000 specials again! :D

Million Dollar Spectaculars would be great.  I really liked the two primetime specials that aired last month.  It's great that we're getting three more.

It's going to be a repeat of last year's TPiR@Nite

Potential unpopular opinion: I think TPIR Primetime works much better without a $1M bonus wheel spin or a $1M pricing game. It was cool the first couple of times but it distracted too much from the rest of the show.

I do miss the amped-up budget the MDSís had though. Whereís $25,000 Half-Off and $100,000 Plinko? Where are the Corvettes and Lincoln Navigators? Crazy stunts like Most Expensive for 3 trips in all three doors, or multi-prizers played for cars?

Itís always nice to see more TPIR Primetime, but those are the kind of gimmicks that make me REALLY excited for TPIR Primetime. The recent specials were good but they didnít feel that much more special than regular daytime TPIR.

"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work."

Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. 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."

^ Well, both the $25,000 Half-Off and $100,000 Plinko are done for Big Money Week on the regular series, which is just as exciting, IMO.

I wish they'd use the black floor for primetime specials again.
