Actually, it was on the June 26, 1973 episode -- considerably farther than halfway through the season.

And far, far too late for the nighttime show to change its title for Season 1.

WarioBarker is exactly right.

I'm going to read most, if not all 16 pages tommorow, but I just wanted to say this...


The good this season:
More Rich on Camera.
A Set number of regular models and familly atmosphere.

The bad:
Same games being played over and over again.
And now, finally added to that list, Drew Carey.

I've been refusing to Bash Drew up in the hopes that he would improve over time.  But he went from good and excited in the begining (minus a few nervous hand gestures),
to being almost like a Ben Stein Clone....with no emotion or effort at all being put into it.   He doesn't care to read all the rules, or makes fun of them..which could be annoying to
the new viewers he seems to be bringing in. 

But the final straw was seeing the exact bid reveal on youtube. I havn't watched the show in a month now thanks to the performance, or lack there of, of Drew Carey.

Drew, either get your emotional act together, or please go find another job.  Price is Right has lasted almost 38 years now, and we don't want you to get it canceled
in 2.


Quick edit - did a bit more reading.  Didn't know there was a 50 minute break to the reveal...but still...

That's a shame because the show as gotten a lot better since then.

There wasn't.

I apologize for the thread resurrection, but I just want to add my two cents to this before we go on to Season 38.

I know my opinion is likely in the minority, but I had no problem with how Drew did the reveal for the exacta. In fact, I think it was brilliant. By this point, we'd already had two :dsw:s. I think it was fresh to take such a big moment so non-chalant. He couldn't reveal any excitement about the exact match.

Well, then with all due respect, you are wrong.  Treating the best bid in the history of the show as though it were a boring, everyday occurrence is about as far from "brilliant" as you can get.

When I first saw that, I was so excited about that bid on the nose, I totally ignored Drew's low reaction to it.

You did not miss anything. As far as we know, CBS does not plan to rerun this episode, although I wish they would.

Oh ok.  I almost thought I had missed something.  But I just realized someone must have been just going through the recaps and stumbled upon this thread.
