Just wondering, what is the exact number of aired episodes as of today, not counting any remaining S50 episodes set to air in August?

9,515.

(For the sake of transparency, I'm counting the half-hour show from September 14, 1978, that's never been aired.)

In that case, at 190 episodes per season, I roughly estimate that the 10,000th episode would be somewhere around April 2025.

When the show airs show #10,000, how close to the actual 10,000 will they be? Aren’t the special shows (7,000th show, 8,000th show, etc.) always off a few shows?

They are often off. Currently, there are 9,522 episodes. 6,731 during the Bob Barker era and 2,791 during the current Drew Carey era.

No, there are 9,515, as I just said farther up this page.

Yeah, as mentioned, Steve's point is that it *was* being used to mean thousands in the case of Price. That is confirmed.

Actually, to be completely accurate, all he mentioned was that K stands for thousand.  It wasn't until gsn93's post that clarified that the number was for weeks that it is fully explanined.

With that, it does in fact make sense.  There just needs to be a letter for 2,000, but that abbreviation never got created, I guess ;)

For future reference, this FAQ entry is a good primer on how to read production numbers.

Guess we’re good for another 50+ years then, as they’ll probably do M after L.  We’ll have to wait until like Season 103 to find out what they jump to after that, as N was nighttime.  Assuming daytime TV is even a thing then and the show can make it to then.

It's actually 25 years, give or take one. It took 24 years to go from D to K and 26 to get to L. If it wasn't for COVID, they would've gotten to the next letter a lot sooner.
