A TNPIR '94 Recap
« on: July 03, 2006, 07:51:24 PM »
Airdate: November 1994

Models of the day
Ferrari Ferris

Two spotlights survey the audience as announcer Burton Richardson says "Get set America! It's time to Come on down!"
Then a montage of clips from both Doug Davidson and Barker's versions are shown and it is used as the intro.
This marks the last time the long intro is used. A shorter version of clips montage is shown afterwards till the end of the run.

"From studio 33 in Hollywood, home of America's favorite games and the world's most fabulous prizes, It's The New Price is Right!"

The camera pans from the audience to the studio to reveal a spotlight right at the center of door #2, where the host makes his entrence tonight.

"And now here is the host of The New Price is Right: Doug Davidson!"

The Barker wall-- or rather Davidson wall in that case, is not even a wall, it's a red curtain.

Handoff: Ferrari Farris

Shannon plays SUPERBALL!! for

1. A trip to Washington, D.C.;
2. A home entertainment center from Broyhill with a 31" Sanyo color TV with universal remote and stereo sound;

Shannon finally picks the right price!

2. General Electrics washer and dryer (1,003)

Inside the safe: A sauna from Almost Heaven of West Virginia (4,025)
Outside the safe: A Aiwa portable tape player and AM/FM radio with a collection of booktapes from popular novels. (*479)

Doug says Jeffrey wants to know if the sauna comes with the towel Julie's wearing...
After all, Doug is very well listened, he says (as opposed to well read...)

Jeffrey dials the numbers 4-7-9 as the combination of the safe and he successfully opens it!  [color=009900]WIN[/color]


Tonight Burton announces that we're using "The Price is Right Mighty Wheel!"

$250  Shannon  10 + 10 = 20

* Doug almost forgets the bonus spin...

Very nice recap. IMO, there should be more TNPiR'94 recaps.

One question, Doreen's grand total came out to $4951. Did Doug mention that? As a matter of fact, not to sound nit-picky, but what were his exact words?

I do have more TNPIR 94 episodes and I plan to recap them too.

And out from my head I think Doug just said that Doreen won a "bunch of nice things". He did not remember the prizes she got during Most Expensive and the total was not ever mentionned, even on screen.

Well, Shannon definitely knew how to suck the life out of Superball. >>

The TPIR'94 Nighttime Intro
« Reply #4 on: July 10, 2006, 11:24:09 AM »
I actually get flashbacks of WTVD-11 when I see the Barker clips during the intro, even though it aired on channel 5 in Durham, NC, LOL!

I thought Doug did a decent job with his version...I used to watch it while doing my homework back in middle school.  Some people didn't like it, but I thought it was cool. :-D

I actually have this episode! 11-1994...I actually thought it was the 3rd episode ever taped. Boy was I wrong...

I used to get up at 3:00 AM to watch this on WDZL-Ch. 39 (Miami, FL). When Mr. Vargas sent me some DVDs, I ended up getting THREE TNPiR'94 episodes! And one of them (not this one, unfortunately :-( was from WDZL (now WBZL-which will soon become Miami's CW affiliate)!

Actually Daniel, it may be possible that this was the third episode to be taped. Since I did not label the time I recorded the episode back then, and the fact that this was 14 years ago, it might be possible that this was aired back in September. Or it might be a repeat aired in November, or that the episodes were airing out of order.
