Well, that would be one way to increase the ratings...   8-O


To keep up the theme ... They gave their all for you, Drew  :oldlol:

Enough of the double entendres. On a better note, today's show was a little goofy imo however, what a great lineup!  I'm still waiting for a 3 Strikes or Triple Play playing (or possibly win).

I noticed that Drew said that they had to increase Price's ratings. Did he know they are slipping?

While it's always good to try to increase a show's ratings, I'd think Drew would be one of the first to know the show's ratings are slipping. In fact, I wish I had the kind of access to daytime television ratings that some staffers probably do, because that information sure is difficult to find online!

One day, someone will play Magic # right. :) To me, 2000 is almost always safe.

TV By The Numbers provides some daytime numbers for Price every once in a while, you just have to keep your eyes open (they usually just provide daytime numbers for the soaps). Alright, maybe every once in a while is an understatement - its more like once in a blue moon - but they do post them.

Based on her first two guesses, I really thought Sheila was gonna pick $20K as her last choice.  Luckily, she went with $22K, which was the only correct-looking price up there and won!

I also noticed something a bit different with this playing of 5 Pricetags.  Usually, the five pricetags will have a $1,000 gap between each of them when they're in order.  For example, the playing before this one had choices of $21K, $22K, $23K, $24K, and $25K.  In fact, everytime I've seen the game, it's always been like that.  This playing, for some reason, had no $21K.  It was $18K, $19K, $20K, $22K, and $23K.  In fact, I had to look at the board a few times hoping to find a $21K up there, but there was none.  Anyone know the last time something like that happened?  I tried searching for it, but I couldn't find a single instance.

That was a really great decision to bail with the $8,000 in It's in the Bag.  The choice for the last bag was just downright hard.

Poor Andrew.  If he just would've went with his first instinct, he would've won.

Woo!  Coming or Going got another winner before the end of the season!

If only Andrew trusted his instincts on making it around 2000 in magic #.

Tarasita made the right choice is Double prices as there are 2 motorcycles and the other price tag that was removed was an odd number price.  Always remember to "go even" on a pair of motorcycles.

I was thinking that 4th number was a 2 in Cover Up as it went down to the final number as having two consectutive 8s wouldn't sound right.  The 1 was possible, but the 2 was the right choice.

Enough of the double entendres.

There is no such thing as 'too much double entendre'.  ;)

5PT: $22,525 would've been my first choice. I had a little fear before Sheila chose it on her last possible choice. Phew!!!

IITB: I would've also bailed at $8K. I was so not sure about the $7.99 bag. I actually thought it was the Visine, too.

Magic #: I would've took no chances and also stopped at around $2K. Sad outcome.  :-(

CoG: Coming was the obvious way to go.

Cover: I would've chose the 3 as the fourth digit on the 1st attempt.  8-O I normally take no chances to pick the unlikely choices first. It would've earned me BIG time. Still, Way to go Dorothy!!  :-)

Double: Very nice.

Showcases: Impressive bids by both players.

A 3.25-star show.
