Question about the nighttime price is right
« on: November 17, 2021, 06:29:32 PM »
When did the 1972-1980 version of the Nighttime Price is Right start to have star graphics in the introduction?  And why not the border instead?

It debut during Bob's tenure as host. It's hard to pinpoint exactly when; since the only episode circulating from his run is the final episode. So it could be anywhere from 196N-300N. Possibly at the start of one of the seasons.

To answer your other question, they probably wanted to do something to differentiate between the two versions. They even changed a part of the opening narration to "an audience sparkling with excitement" to match up with keyed-in studio lights pan.

To my knowledge, the 1972-1980 version did not have a bonus.

The Kennedy version did. The bonus was $500 for part of its run.

The bonus was initially $100. From what I can determine, it was increased to $500 by #0081N (the 36th episode), recorded on May 14, 1985.
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.)

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

Crazy how they bumped it up to $500, but no DSW.  Well, not that crazy since a DSW would've been quite the thing
