A game show that brings us all together from generation to generation. A game show that's been on the air in some form for eight different decades (a feat only matched by To Tell the Truth). Hosts that bring us priceless memories, Bill Cullen, Tom Kennedy, Doug Davidson, Dennis James, Bob Barker and Drew Carey. A game show where we watch average civilians win lifechanging prizes and amounts of money. It's the show that brings this website together. Congratulations to 50 years of The Price is Right. Here's to 50 more!

That was one nice looking Porsche. I want! (Maybe not in white though 😊.)

Very cool to see the scenes of all of the permanent announcers over the years.

The salute to Bob Barker was very moving. Time marches on.

The prizes were pretty toned down compared to premiere week. Show how awful & dumb that week was, IMO.

What was that cheap boat doing in this show at all? That goes in a PG in this type of show, not a SC.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Adam, Vanna was on the June 20, 1980 episode, not September 20. Also, you omitted Dennis James from your closing remarks.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

When's the last time a "Plinko cycle" occurred?

It was definitely a very enjoyable special.  I do wish the Cullen version would of got a mention though.

Alright. I cant take this anymore.
Why do you even still watch the show then? You clearly are hate-watching it at this point. All you have done for the past several years is nitpick about the shows inner workings, budget, and if it doesnt meet the same standard that you have set, then its bad and they don't know what they are doing. You inserted your ridiculous opinions on nearly every single episode and i swear you're just trolling at this point.

I will second this. Wayoshi never mentions anything good (at least, not that I've seen) and always posts about the "bad". Doing so tonight is like showing up to someone's birthday party and complaining they didn't blow out the candles or open the presents to your liking (I think that's called being a "Debby Downer", if I'm not mistaken).

The fact is that there was a lot to like on tonight's show. We got a touching tribute to Bob, we got to see quite a few old clips that we thought would never be broadcast again on CBS, some exciting wins, all from a show that's been on the air for 50 freaking years. A lot of shows would absolutely love to have that kind of longevity. I get that the current regime doesn't always do things to everyone's liking, but my God, you should be able to put it all aside for one night.

Insanity: doing the same exact thing over and over expecting different results.

Million Dollar Plinko is insanity.

Once again, Million Dollar Plinko is insanity.
They'll never learn.

Oh, they know it's insanity. However, they've had inflated center hits before, and if it happens, it happens. If not, at least the $50k center slot is more symbolic than just forcing a 7-digit number.

After hearing most of the special guests were in-house at CBS, I was shocked when Vanna White modeled the luggage. Otherwise, I don't really have much to add besides a well done. Sure, I could kvetch on how they misspelled Columbia, or how they literally used the same boat that appeared in the showcases literally 11 hours prior, but with the amount of clips they crammed into this beefy lineup, I was impressed that they pulled off a two-hour show.

And there were a few treats in the games also. Hole for another refurbished car? Grocery Game for 3 rooms? Golden Road appearing in the second half of the show for the first time ever? There was a lot of fun to be had. Would I have personally wanted to see stuff like the house here instead of the daytime show? Not really, and although I would have appreciated a larger budget, like upping the bonuses on the wheel or an even more luxury car than a BMW in the showcases, it ultimately just wasn't necessary.

Honestly, the outtakes themselves were worth the price of admission.

Onto 100 years!
"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."

They used a clip from my show! Drew calling Rachel "April" happened on 4/15/19, and in fact those headphones she was modeling are the one bid I won  :-D.

Humblebragging aside, this was a thoroughly enjoyable show and I'm glad they gave it two hours it deserved. I loved seeing Golden Road 6th; I just wish John had known to guess the lowest digit on the Porsche. So close! But overall, lots of great clips and funny moments throughout the special, and one worth keeping the recording of for a long time.  Just incredible what this show has done.

... You guys do know the first sentence I said was a compliment for this show, right?

Here's another "nitpick", though - why was the copy for the BMW just "a new car"? That's a luxury SUV right there!

S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...
