I have a gut feeling there won't be any IUFBs, and the games will all be for money, the way a Big Money Week Friday episode works. That only leaves the showcases, which, for all I know, will have a home viewer assigned to each of the two celebrities involved.

It looks like they are doing IUFBs.

Either the press release didn't mention the three other members of the cast that didn't "get on stage", or that means 3 people playing IUFB #4, 2 playing IUFB #5, and them joking around when one person is left.
"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

Date TBA - guest Phil Keoghan; I am guessing an The Amazing Race tie-in of some sort


The Amazing Race started its extremely delayed 32nd season last Wednesday.  I'm guessing that Phil's appearance on LMAD will air prior to the show's season finale, which is slated for December

What about the TPIR episode of Gameshow Marathon?

Touche. I totally forgot about that. Granted it was a one-off deal separate from normal show canon, but.....still would count.

Well, it'll certainly be interesting to get our first two tastes of Covid-era Price as primetime specials before season 49 starts on November 16. Love that they and LMaD are doing a first responders special to start off.

For the November 2 episode with The Neighborhood cast, I wonder how the format will play out. It's just the six adult cast members (my guess is Hank Greenspan won't be playing by himself since he's a child and rather he'll play along with the others), so I wonder if they will use the half hour format with a Showcase Showdown included and have home viewer play along and other additional material to get it to an hour. Or there will be three (two if Hank plays as a contestant solo) other actors/actresses who appear on the show besides the ones listed to have nine contestants.

I also think they will have actors who play recurring characters on the series fill the remaining three spots. Though there is going the route of having three members of the production team be contestants for this special. But we just have to wait and see what they will do for the contestants in this special.

The press release lists seven actors - not particularly coincidentally, the seven that appear on the show's cast page at the CBS website. They can limit the last two IUFBs to three and then two contestants. The show's Wikipedia page also lists three "recurring characters" they can use, and there's always, say, show creator/executive producer Jim Reynolds.

It lists Hank Greenspan as a contestant, but how old is he? (Then again, the show has had no problems with middle schoolers playing without any adults accompanying them.)

I think another difference between these shows and Y&R is that Y&R didn't have to drastically change much in order to come back. Some awkward distancing and trick camera shots to cover up some of that distancing and imply close contact. These are two shows completely reliant on having and featuring audiences, so there's far more interest as well in seeing how they adapt to such a drastic adjustment. So, it's not only to fill a hole, but it's because they know there will also be some interest. More than Y&R just picking up and finishing its "Victor's covering up a 30 year old murder"


Given the plethora of news, both light and serious, coming at the average person on a daily basis, I’d be hard pressed to believe “changes to Price and Deal” even registered to many, let alone are driving a statistically meaningful spike in viewing. It’s just not realistic. Price, and perhaps Deal now, makes good filler content. That’s not a knock. It’s important for the networks to have that in their quiver.

Once the show begins and Drew does whatever perfunctory explanation they came up with, sure, you may get some “huh, how about that” reactions. But it’s nearly only going to be a specific set of hyper-invested people who are going to remember that the new setup is happening and tune in because of it. The remainder will be the combination of inertia and casual viewers who happen to see a promo or in their guide and decide to watch/record because they just feel like watching (they like the show, they like the theme, etc.)

And again, the point about Y&R is that it is just as valuable a property to CBS daytime. Price is not on a pedestal where it gets slotted in prime time to goose the daytime.
