A good article on TPIR/Drew. No spoilers in the article but there is a pic from the show.

It's nice to know that Drew has changed for the good over the past two years.

An interesting article, indeed.

the prime-time shows for the first time with Mr. Carey will feature chances to win $1 million in cash, as opposed to those worth $15,000 to $40,000 usually offered during the daytime show

Uh... Wha?

The Showcases...the article means the normally-$15-to-$40k Showcases in daytime can now win you a million dollars.

I thinkt hey're referring to contestant's daily totals, which, if they win a showcase, usually falls into the $15 to $40K range. The way they phrase it, it makes it sound like TPiR generally offers cash bonuses of that size, which only happens when contestants do particularly well in it's in the Bag or Plinko.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"
