In the clip that I saw, she made her way up the steps to the stage and the plinko board pretty well.

They might know which game is going to be played next, but they don't know in advance who is going to actually play the game. They are pretty quick with getting the player the necessary help to let them play their game.

Even so, there's a reason Roger usually scheduled games like Race Game in the first half.

Out In Left Field / Re: Other composers for music cues?

I felt this could use a reboot:

You all know about Edd Kalehoff, Michael Karp, Score Productions, Killer Tracks, and other famous hits here and there comprising most of Price's soundtrack, but I hear music elsewhere that makes me think of the show. That got me to thinking: what other composers (other than those listed above) make you think of Price's music—and, in the process, would make good cues?

My short list:
  • Dean Elliott
  • Joe Raposo
  • Charles Fox
  • Takanori Arisawa

What about Jonathan Wolff? His portfolio is amazing.

I...wasn't giving 2016 a bad rap. I just simply noted, if vaguely, that there was a seemingly large number of celebrity deaths than usual and that it's a trend I hope doesn't continue into this year.

At least for me personally, 2016 was a phenomenal year.

I totally see where you're coming from, PayingTheRent. All the famous deaths we had last year were even crazier than Summer 2009. That unfortunate period has since been called the "Summer of Death." 2016 was the "Year of Death" in my opinion. We're halfway through 2017, and it's not as bad as last year.

Seems strange that they would call her down as a contestant before Plinko was played, since Plinko does have stairs to climb.

They might know which game is going to be played next, but they don't know in advance who is going to actually play the game. They are pretty quick with getting the player the necessary help to let them play their game.

Let's put it this way. There is no way anyone: Drew, you, me, Jojo the Hobo under the bridge, would host the show the way Bob Barker did. When I train DJs, I tell them that they will find their own way. They will do things far differently than I do. I can only give them the basics.
This holds true to this thread about Drew. The producers can only teach him so much. They have to trust him to keep the excitement up somehow.

On the August 20, 2017 episode: I thought both of the non-celebrity guys tonight were great contestants. They were good game players and also quite entertaining. Michael Rappaport, while not the best Pyramid player, made the show even more enjoyable.

Someone mentioned this before, but I really noticed the reaction shots of Michael Strahan tonight. There were several of them. Any thoughts on those? Are they distracting?

Garrett's use of the word "closed" for "Things You Open" and "empty" for "Things That Are Filled" made his good clues even better. For the latter, he thought of a prescription and I thought of a cavity. I think his choice was better. However, I immediately thought of "The Incredible Hulk" to go along with "Kermit the Frog" ("Characters That Are Green"). Unfortunately, he did not.

"Nair": great clue for "Ways to Remove Hair". I think the rhyming helped.
 
My sister gave an excellent clue for "Places You Find Coins (Change)": "a wishing fountain".

"I am what women drink to get drunk." Funny, and it worked. :)  ("What Wine Might Say")

Another comedy legend passes away today as Jerry Lewis dies at the age of 91.

No doubt his comedic talent and his association with MDA through his telethon are definitely the ones we'll remember him by. RIP Jerry Lewis.  :cry:
