The first two card game tables? Nice red and green theme for Christmas!

The first Card Game table looked like it was found at a junkyard, and it took them until the mid 80s when 5 digit car prices first appeared to update it to the slightly more tolerable table with the blue top and the red/orange yellow finish.

Who expected the Dolphins to beat the Patriots last night? (cue the chirping crickets!)

That was the worst playing of Shell Game I've ever seen, but at least it wasn't wiped out.

Ryan made a gutsy move that paid off this time, calling higher on the first rolled four.

None of the contestants, be they winners or losers, actually "win" anything. I believe they're paid whatever the AFTRA union scale is for a single episode, though.

I should've also said that there's no way they would actually recreate the sets. They wouldn't necessarily have to use the word ugly, although it would just be in fun like ugly sweaters are. Probably the most that would be done if they ever did an "ugly sweater party" show would be they would just put on some things to the sets to tacky them up.

Holy man...I recognize that name from ATGS.  You really have been around for ages -- longer than I have, I think.

Congratulations, dude!

That was a tough break in Lucky 7. The contestant played it as well as he could in this era rather than sticking to the middle numbers. It just didn't work out for him, which is a real shame.


Thanks for the kind words. Been a long-time lurker here for many, many years - and this was a big check on my bucket list. I'd seen the Fiesta anywhere between $16-$19K, but it is implausibly loud in that studio. You cannot hear George at all, and even if you could, you're having an out-of-body experience anyway. A producer holds up a cue card saying "Ford Fiesta SE," and that's about what you have to go by. I was definitely straying away from the middle 4-5-6s. When $19k came up, I was sure it had to be $19,2xx, $19,3xx at best. I was shocked at $19,7xx - and the rest, well, I took a shot. You can sort of hear me tell Drew, "I never would've picked 9, anyway" at the end. Regardless, he (and the staff) couldn't be nicer or classier. An incredible experience I'll proudly remember fondly forever.

Out In Left Field / game show pilots that aren't picked up

Do the "winners" of unsold pilots get to keep what they win if the show never makes it to air, I can't help but wonder?

KPIX (San Francisco) pre-empted everything after Double Prices to announce that the city's mayor had died.  "Coincidentally," the pre-emption ended just as The Young & The Restless was beginning...

The tacky props thing made me think it would be a fun thing to do for a Christmas week episode- the "ugly sweaters" of The Price is Right. They would just have to be willing to remake or recolor the game set pieces for a day. Or just use a video monitor to show a playing with the original ugly set before playing the game on the current set.

That would make for one interesting show.  Not sure the producers, especially the designer(s) of the original "ugly" props, would wanna openly call the stuff they worked hard on ugly though.
