As I understand it, the PB in the '70's was actually on Dennis's show (as was the only SC tie), so this is the first PB on CBS daytime.

And that's it. After 36 1/2 years, I've seen everything that could possibly happen on the show, except for a "win" in Plinko.

And I have never missed Bob more than I did today.

I can only imagine how he would have handled today's reveal.

"The ACtual REtail PRICE...

of YOUR SHOWcase IS....

Twenty...

three...

THOU...

sand...

<beat one, beat two>

SEVEN HUNDRED FORTY-THREE! A PERFECT BID! A PERFECT BID! NEVER IN PRICE IS RIGHT HISTORY," etc.

Instead, we got:

"Tennythreethousansevenhunnerdfortythree rightonthenoserightonthenose,hasnthappensince 72or73helpcontrolthepetpopulation..."

I may seriously be done watching the show.

John
Just once, I'd like to see a contestant get on stage and say, "I watch the show all the time. You look a lot younger in person, Bob."

Question:

Did Drew keep the Sound Effects Ladies Gag in 1A today? (I didn't see the show, and I don't think it's up on CBS, so I don't know)
Yeah...let's make this current shall we?

Ever since the show started to go in a different direction, I defended it. I defended the show and I defended Drew. But after that reaction to what was probably the greatest moment in Price history, I have lost a lot of respect for Drew. Bob would have at least showed that he cared and had gotten excited over the moment. Drew actually stood there and looked at the real price and said it just like this, "You bid $23,743 on your showcase, the actual price is (pause), $23,743. You got it on the nose, congratulations". And this was said with no emotion whatsoever. This is not the same Drew from 1 year ago. This is a different Drew that is showing his real colors. He is showing that he just does not care. I am just sitting here wondering what went wrong. Drew needs to go to Game Show hosting school, because he really needs help.

Drew did keep the "sound effects lady" gag in today. Probably, other than Sharon's One away win, the best moment of the show.

This was an awesome show!  Ironically, at about 2:00 a.m. that morning, I asked somebody in line who had been to 100+ tapings if he had ever seen a DSW in all his tapings, as I had not.  There was a very long stopdown between the showcases and the reveal, and lots of conversations going on all over the stage between groups of people.  I really don't think they knew how to proceed, since this wasn't like somebody bidding $17500 and being on the nose.  

For the record, this was the third time that I got a showcase on the nose while in the studio.  The other two times were in 1992 (two days before I was chosen as a contestant) and 2005.  It was awesome to have somebody listening to me this time, especially somebody who I steered wrong in "Switch?".

It was also fun to help Sharon win the car in One Away, although she could have had an extra $500 had she taken my bid on the washer/dryer.

Not sure if I'm welcome at Studio 33 anymore, but I'm sure I'll find out one of these days...

Of course I'm exicted about the exacta for the SC.  And I argee with JohnHolder.  If and only if.  But we'll never know.

But nothing, NOTHING, gets me pumped more than a five horn win.  That game has soooo much natural tension built into the proper revealing of that game after four horns, that to hear that fifth horn makes me cry.  She was a GREAT contestant and the return of the "mighty sound effects lady" made me feel better that we didn't lose that forever.  I've now watched that segment off the DVR 12 times.

And any day we have exactly zero Drew/Rich SC appearances makes for an even better show.  I actually really LIKED the theme for SC1.  What a great chance for today's CNAOS to have a shot of being on stage.  WELL DONE MR. SHOWCASE WRITER.

Personally, I don't care that there may have been a 45 minute stopdown between bids and reveals.  There's no excuse for the reveal of the greatest moment in his Daytime era.  None whatsoever.  I guess I should be thankful that he proved me more right than ever with the way he revealed the perfect bid.  Indifferent.  And it makes no sense after the fun he had with OA Sharon.  None.

And Ted, welcome to the "I got Willy'd in S33 Club!"

I'm glad I saw the spoiler.  I would have gotten infuriated over Drew for not caring about one of the greatest moments in the history of the show.

I have two comments....

1 - Nice build up and reveal for One-Away.  Drew was better than usual and the contestant was very good with her different "askings".  It was one of the best I've seen lately.  I liked the way Sharon asked the final round.  She was a joy to watch!!

2 - A Showcase exacta on $23,743?  What a random, off the wall ARP on which to do that!  I wonder if S&P had to take a look around to see if there was a "leak" out there somewhere.  I guess 2 exact bids out of some 7000 shows is well within the realm of statistical probability.

[EDIT BY TON80]  I just read Ted's post.  (He posted while I was typing my post).  I think I found the leak!! I would not be surprised, Ted, if your picture isn't hanging on the wall right now, with a red circle with slash through it.  [/EDIT]

When they revealed Sharon's ARP, and she was off by only $400, I knew Terry had won.  I hate it for Sharon, because that was a very good bid on her part.  

Drew's reveal of that really sucked, by the way.  That's too bad, too.  He had a good opportunity to shine, and he blew it!

You know why Drew was monotonous at the end? Because he realized SOMEONE ELSE helped him get that EXACTA. Someone else had those prices (well-done, random audience member) memorized. While I absolutely agree he SHOULD have been much more excited, I think that's why he got so down, which is weird, because he's supposed to love big wins.

A- for the show, all things considered.

Isn't this the same Drew Carey that almost had a seizure after an exciting Lucky Seven win earlier in the season?  Consistency.  That's all I ask.  That exacta reveal was downright awful.  He did the whole thing monotone.  

Drew Carey, if you do visit the website, please read this.  At least try to show an effort, or get off the damn show and give someone else a chance.  You're starting to make Patrick Wayne and Rolf Benirschke look good.

Just saw today's show, and that was a monumental performance at the end.

Any Number: Great down-to-the-wire win!
It's in the Bag: Aww, he could've gone all the way to $16,000. But $2,000 isn't all that bad, either. It's $2,000 more than the guy came to LA with.
Switch: A perfect bid for Terry, but then he suffers a bad fate with his game.
Swap Meet: Another great win.
One Away: Lucky her, she nailed the car's price on the nose!
Pick-a-Number: I also thought of 5.

Showcases: For the first time ever in daytime, somebody bids the exact price of a Showcase. If this were an MDS, he would've been a millionaire by now. I'd bet Bob Barker's celebrating like crazy, wherever he is.

If Bob were still here:

"Terry, you bid $23,743 on your Showcase, and the actual retail price is...$23,743. You got it EXACTLY RIGHT, AND YOU WIN BOTH SHOWCASES! This is another historic first, a perfect bid in the Showcase! Terry has won $56,437 in cash and prizes today on The Price is Right. I tell you, this is a spectacular ending to a great show! Bob Barker reminding you to help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered. Goodbye, everybody!"

If anything, this could end up being the show of the season! Way to go, Terry!
