I'm not sure exactly what it is, but I'm quite certain there's a mistake in there. ;)

Thanks for noticing, my brain was thinking Wednesday for that day because I've been used to TPIR @ N on Wednesdays. I have fixed it.

Out In Left Field / Re: Masters 2024 Golf
« Last post by BillyGr on Today at 07:14:03 PM »
they did a special called Masters highlights. not exactly sure what that means considering the tournament did not start (usually it begins on Friday and this year Saturday based on broadcasting schedules).

It began on Thursday, though some issues with rain meant many players were doing a round plus Friday to catch up.

I think they often broadcast some of it on cable those first couple days, with CBS network getting the weekend coverage.

Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 4/12/2024
« Last post by thatvhstapeguy on Today at 06:32:44 PM »
I was going to chime in and describe this but gamesurf, as always, can better explain things better than I can. I do recall him briefly discussing this in the chat one time.

Another thing I notice is that Hannah/Hayley (whichever one of them is doing the contestant selection for a given taping) wheels her laptop cart out to downstage left and sets up shop for a while. They seem to double check prospective contestants' energy levels, and probably sanity check whether they have the locations right. So, if you ace the interview, but then get seated and try to nap, they are not going to call you. Sometimes I think they even point cameras towards the preferred call-down sections.

Earlier this season, I was placed in the second row on the right side by George's podium. where Big Bob, the jib op, had left his camera in a position with his screen facing the audience. His camera inadvertently was giving our section a good view of his viewer and program monitor, as well as an iPad attached with this schematic:



So I saw in real time how the audience gets filled!

As the the rest of the audience filled in the studio, somebody dragged and dropped the other numbers to match their locations in the audience, until 1-9 had been placed. Once the bulk of the audience had been loaded (but before seat fillers were brought in) and dance music was playing, some iPad numbers were adjusted further after initial placement, and sure enough, as I looked around the studio I saw OCA members making a few seating adjustments to make sure contestants weren't too close too each other.

As each party in line walks into the studio, an OCA member asks how many in your party, and from there they direct you to one of three other OCA members in the aisle of each section who tells you where to sit.

The first OCA member has a sheet of paper they keep secret. What I assume happens is the OCA staff is given the nine OOA numbers of the nine contestants, which they either memorize or consult when parties aren't looking. If a party contains a prospective contestant's OOA number, they send them to one of three sections. I think the intention is to try to have three contestants from each section of the audience.

Sherry had order of arrival number 001, but she was seated in the middle of the second row. So I see they're still seating audience members according to criteria other than order of arrival. For those who have been to Haven: how out-of-order is the seating?

They generally put the first audience members in the studio toward the front, but it isn't 1:1 with OOA numbers. They tend to scatter you from the people you've met in line, and they fill in all three sections going back--not just the center section first. They place larger groups towards the middle of the middle section, and smaller groups on the aisles, as this gives them more flexibility to move people around as the audience trickles in. I've noticed groups with matching T-Shirts often get placed in high visibility areas, though this doesn't seem to affect their likelihood of getting selected as a contestant.

2 episodes of The Price is Right at Night are scheduled for 5/20 (Monday) and 5/23 (Thursday). Both are at 8PM Eastern.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Ten Chances questions
« Last post by Axl on Today at 05:06:27 PM »
Drew himself has blatantly acknowledged it in other appearances and interviews, but I'm sure he isn't going to (nor would the production staff let him) refer to it on-air.

In one of those interviews, Drew specifically said he's not allowed to say it on the show.  :-)

^It's more that they place the 9 contestant parties and a couple alternates in designated hot spots, and they kind of let other audience members follow.
