The best part of today's show was that we got another pretty good lineup this week. The fact that Grand Game was played 5th rather than 1st was just great and about time. Spelling Bee first is a decent way to kick things off.

Hey, another cameo and this time it's the Incredible Hulk himself!

Could someone set One Wrong Price up fairly? It seems anymore in this game we've seen borderline unfair setups. That was just cruel.

Speaking of cruel, Bonkers was just downright nasty. How in the world was that trip $97xx?!?

Squeeze Play, however, was e-a-z-y az 1-2-3.  :P

Yeah, Bonkers was indeed a crapshoot. I've said before this is a purely guessing game, with the only strategy being to keep track of previous incorrect guesses. No Dude Ranch for her, I guess.

The coats in One Wrong Price were nice prizes ... but $4,000 for them? Holy moses, no wonder I got it wrong.

I was also fooled by the lotion being more than $7; I thought it was less and the cat food would be more.

Otherwise, straightforward day today.

Spelling Bee: I think that bath set was a trick to miss it.

One Bid 2: 150 for a dining group? I don't think that could be possible in '72.

Bonkers: Man, that was kinda slow and bad.

One Bid 3: "What's The Hulk doing here?"

One Wrong Price: I can understand thinking that a round number can be a wrong price, but it doesn't work all the time.

Any Number: I knew the other 1 had to be in the car's prize.

Grand Game: Gold Bond cheaper than 9 Lives? No.

Squeeze Play: TV? "Take out that 6!"

Showcases: I would've said around 17000 for Ryan's Showcase. But it looks like the dollar strategy worked yet again.

Spelling Bee! Good choice! Those headphones look like they're being modeled by a QBeez head (referring to an online game)  :lol:
That's a cheap gift set! Good thing he had the R on his first pick. Also, Drew "Prop Fails" again at the end there with the second A.

One-Bid 2... I know <$400 bids are automatically tagged Stupid/Suicide, but $150 and $300 on a *dining group*?!

Bonkers... I swear there was a perfectly placed blue light shining off of that plunger today.
Kristen didn't make it look painful by any means today, but she was just a bit on the sluggish side. For whatever reason, I thought it was gonna be LLLL today... but no less that was a $9,000 trip. Wow!

Kind of a slow-dragged out cameo today. Inarguably not the caliber of ORP's jam session yesterday.

One Wrong Price- easily one of the more evil setups. I swear I could go to my local discount furniture store and get  a Queen or King size for less than that!

Kristen got bum-steered by the crowd again on the SCSD.  :lol:
 (I tried to do this myself, but I just *know* there's someone here who's mathematically calculated optimal spin/stay strategies. Does anyone have a mathematical proof of that in a file somewhere?)

"You could still be there, [Michael]."  :-D

$5000?! Whoa there, tiger.

Aha! Power of 10 Grand Game! And I love that grocery description cue too... that's my all time fave. I'm kinda getting bored of Drew saying "Oh really? Are you sure?" on the obvious ones, especially when Drew whiffed on it. (Then again, I did too.  8-))

I've seen that cooler a million times and was just mentally screaming "NINE-NINETY-NINE!!!" on that one-bid. Please God let that be one of the items if I become a contestant...

Trying to get in the head of the Price staff in Squeeze Play usually gives me a headache. Repeating digits? No? Maybe? I'm constantly feeling like I'm gonna get hit by reverse psychology every time I play along.  :lol:

Hypothetical Bids:
SC1: $32699 (OVER)
SC2: $19250 (OVER)
= (GO HOME!)  :lol:

Genuine thanks to CBS for prematurely posting the video! Today would've stunk for me!  :lol:

I'm REALLY loving the fact that we're getting more variety in our pricing games. I hope that keeps up. Good show! :)

I liked the variety of games as well.  Having the original Hulk on was a nice touch.  That guys looks great considering the Incredible Hulk TV show was like 30 years ago!  You could tell the segment was chopped to bits in the editing process because Drew was tripping over his words.  One second Drew's standing next to Lou and the next he's back over by the contestants.  It's magic!

Since when have ITEMS up for bids become PRIZES Up for Bids?  Is this the new standard?  I wonder if there's logic behind this or just Drew making things up as he goes.

-Lineup: Pretty good, we've definitely had an improvement.
-Bee: El luck! 2nd SP was tough. 10/10
-Bonky: Wow, $9728 has to be the largest prize offered on this game. Still, she shouldn't have considered >8, but both >6 was a definite loss. 8/10
-OB3: This went pretty well, as Drew cracked a nice joke etc., but Lou should have come to Drew, as throwing to the first bid from the door was odd and led to a forced bad edit with Drew right back where he was.
-OWP: -000 is rare to see but that usually means it's right. -50 wrong to -99 = el loss. 8/10
-SD1: 4/5
-A#: Putting ALL of 4-8 not in the car, and 8.70 in the bank, is quite evil again. I was surprised he didn't win the bank the way it went. 8/10
-Grandy: I confused Gold Bonds, there's a 4.79 lotion and this big one...thought cat food was 7.51 from a past playing of Passy. 8/10
-Squeezy: El yep. 9/10
-SD2: 4/5
-SC1: It's been awhile, Fleetwood. Recapping works just fine with the swivel at the end. 5/5
-SC2: Fine, but there was a real recap again. :/ 4/5
-Results: Wow, it was a good $1 today because that could have been easily OVERed. That bar thing is no wine storage, that's for sure. Still, the Fleetwood <30k? There's a 32k one by itself, I know that... 7/10
-Drew: Nothing to report today, which was good. 9/10

PGs: 51/60
SDs: 8/10
SCs: 16/20
Drew: 9/10

84 --> B

"The models can talk!!  The models can talk!"  Wow....yet another benchmark on the low side.  I immediately changed the channel for a bit once I saw Drew standing next to him.  Maybe Drew's just setting the stage for Rosie to take over with her half talk show, half game show idea.  What do you "change is good"-ers think about that!

Oh, and in relation to OWP today, the sooner you all realize that the newer "designer" prizes are all leaning towards the "excessively over-ARPd", the easier those games will be for you.

With all due respect Willy, some of us think only good changes are good, not all kinds of change.  I don't know if you know this, but there was a half game show/half talk show done in the past, from almost 20 years ago, on Nickelodeon, it lasted more than the standard 65 episodes that other shows had during that time period.  

In no stretch of the imagination do I and probably a lot of other people would want to see TPIR come to that. 

Also, Rosie is now doing a new series on Lifetime, so it's unlikely CBS would give Drew the heave-ho after Nina Tassler gave a press release about the network being "cool" with him and with the controversy that Rosie generated on The View, I doubt people would want to see her host the show and/or CBS or Fremantle wouldn't want to hire her.  Not to mention her plans to move it across the country to New York City.

Games such as OWP won't hardly be won if those stupid "cool" prizes keep rearing their ugly heads in the show. Get rid of 'em.

While it isn't a catastrophe by any means, it's still kind of a laziness thing to an extent. However, I honestly didn't notice that word change today; I'm willing to bet the average guy didn't either. (Then again... we are not "average" fans)  :lol:

No offense, Willy, but this is probably the single most mind-boggling message you have ever posted - I can't even tell if you're serious or just ranting! Even Fremantle thought Rosie's ideas for the show were ridiculous.

Did Drew's quick <10 second "interview" with the Hulk ruin the show? No.
Did it slow it down? No.
Did Bob do similar interviews with models/game show hosts/other people? You betcha!

(a week's salary says somebody will tell me Bob's interviews with other people do not compare to this for some absolutely, bent-over-backwards, ridiculous reason)

It was quite annoying that Drew spent more time talking with Abigail, who didn't even win the second One Bid, than Kristen, who did win the second One Bid, after Kristen won the second One Bid.

Bonkers! was absolutely evil.  I can't see how anybody was going to win it.

I sure do miss the old e-ticket plug.

I wish they'd stop putting Campbell's soup in Grand Game so Drew would stop with his ridiculous bit about the cost of it every friggin' time it's picked in the game.

I was quite pleased that Drew didn't say "welcome back to The Price Is Right" returning to the last segment and mentioned absolutely nothing about Abigail overbidding on the last One Bid by one dollar.  It's these kinds of unnecessary things that simply slow the show down.  It's nice when things move along more quickly in this sense.

I don't care if the "solution" to the personalised first Showcases are to include both contestants.  They shouldn't be personalising the Showcases period.  If the Showcase becomes a dialogue between Rich and the contestants in the Showcase, then that puts me, the viewer, as an eavesdropper and not actively included.  If it's done as a narrative, as it should be, then it's all-inclusive and I have every reason to watch as much as the contestants.

Also, it really kills the flow of a Showcase when you build to a climatic conclusion at the end of the final prize's description to go over some asinine recap of the prizes that were seen only moments ago.  They really need to stop doing this.  Drew also needs to stop bringing up the prizes before the Showcase prices are revealed.  It's purely redundant.

(a week's salary says somebody will tell me Bob's interviews with other people do not compare to [Drew's with Lou Ferrigno] for some absolutely, bent-over-backwards, ridiculous reason)

Well, I'll say this:  Bob's brief chats with the occasional walk-on star visiting usually had some kind of point to them.  I really didn't see any point for this, especially when what little bit Drew said that seemed to tie his presence together was cut so short.

Not to mention that she hurt her chances of winning by polling the audience while the clock was ticking.

This is purely my opinion, but methinks you are watching this too deeply.  Even when I didn't start taping religiously many years ago, then a Joe Plinko, I didn't feel "included" in anything in the show at all.  I just sat there, watched Bob, the prizes, the games, and excited contestants, noticing any cosmetic changes to props along the way.  Even since I started taping every day and joined this site, I really don't feel "included" in anything on the show  Does that make my viewing of the show incorrect?

Bonky:  Wow... sexed-up dude ranch trip.  That made me overlook Kristen's frustrating canvassing of the Peanut Gallery.

One-Bid #3:  Wow, the original Incredible Hulk!

1WP:  Yay!  Half-Off cue! :P Methinks this was a forced loss.  Only the LFATs would've suspected that the pirate bed and the Burberry coats were sexed-up and, therefore, priced correctly.

Any:  Good to see that Adam decided to dust off Any Number and bring it out for the first time in almost a month.  Now if only he would dust off 3 Strikes and Pocket Change.

SC #1:  I'm sorry, but you're not living in "the lap of luxury" if you have Ashley furniture.  Henry obviously made a :wotc:

My showcase bids:
:frts: --$28,007
Ireland--$25,007

Result:  Wow, I guess that huge bar set wasn't as expensive as it looked.

I've said before this is a purely guessing game, with the only strategy being to keep track of previous incorrect guesses.

And to go as fast as possible.  That's a pretty good one, too.  One contestant got eleven guesses before.

I sure do miss the old e-ticket plug.

PAST:  When the old ticket plug was replaced with the e-ticket plug, it was said "I sure do miss the old ticket plug."
PRESENT:  Now we hate the new Drew e-ticket plug and we love the old Rich e-ticket plug and miss it.
FUTURE:  The contestant will win the Showdown and Drew will just yell "TICKETS!!" and fade to black.  And then we will be saying "I sure do miss the Drew e-ticket plug."

My point being we all get used to things and just as you got used to the old e-ticket plug, you'll get used to this and other changes too.  They'll grow on everyone.

And deep down inside you know you're looking forward to the future Drew Ticket Yell Plug.  "TICKETS!!! <fade to black>.

Ahh... but the crucial fact is that it's not Roger, Frank. The tradition could break at any point. (See, I'm naturally thinking in circles. I'm like that) :lol:

Wayoshi... it's mostly my fault, but that post wasn't intended to really disagree so much as express shock. What's interesting is how it seems as though a lot of times, Drew's "unusual" acts do seem to go down negatively most of the time. Albeit very arguable, some would say that no news is good news in terms of Drew's hosting.  I'm not passionately on either side of the argument, at the present moment.

(And someone... please smack me if I say "yowza" again. I hate that word.)  :lol:

This is purely my opinion, but methinks you are watching this too deeply.

No, sure, most of us wouldn't pick up on that, but the format of the Showcase itself pretty much requires that it be carried out as a narrative because it is a presentation, a presentation of prizes.  The prizes shouldn't be presented through a dialogue of Rich just talking with the contestants because you are then not properly setting up the presentation form that is the Showcases.  The prizes should be presented in a narrative format.

we all get used to things and just as you got used to the old e-ticket plug, you'll get used to this and other changes too.  They'll grow on everyone.

But the changes you compared are not the same.  When the e-ticket plug was first introduced, it was introduced along with continued use of the snail mail plug.  This cruddy new e-ticket plug was only done for time constraints and isn't necessary because they're wasting time away with needless bumpers that could be put towards more constructive things, such as full ticket plugs.

And deep down inside you know you're looking forward to the future Drew Ticket Yell Plug.  "TICKETS!!! <fade to black>.

No, and you and I both know that such a method would be inefficient, and I shouldn't have to explain why.

Drew's final reveal in Grand Game today was wonderful.  He built it up without looking at the answer, and everything about it came off as completely sincere.  I really hope he doesn't think it was a failure just because the game ended up being lost, because it absolutely wasn't -- it was one of the best reveals he's ever done.

This has nothing to do with the show itself, but the weirdest thing happened today while I was watching it.  The signal died in the middle of Spelling Bee, and before it came back (and for a little while afterward, too), there was a channel search from my cable provider running over WTAJ.  On top of that, when it finally came back on right before Bonkers, it had somehow gotten set to broadcast in widescreen, which was pretty sweet for the two minutes it lasted before somebody at the cable company switched it back.

Spelling Bee:  Great win! :-)
Bonkers:  Rats! :-(  I have to admit that when I saw the wrong price, I thought for sure that the right combination was going to be all 4 of them lower.
One Wrong Price:  Curses! :-(  I thought either the coats or the bed would be the wrong price quicker than I did the fireplace.
Any Number:  Well, it could've been worse, and I think you know what I mean by that.
Grand Game:  There's no way in heck this should've been lost!  That was an easy setup!
Squeeze Play:  Good job! :-)

An okay show overall, IMHO.

Spelling: Very nice.

Bonkers: An over $9K Dude Ranch trip??!!!  :-o :-o :evil: :evil: Boy, Would I have done no better.

IUFB #3: WOW!!!! Amazing how Lou "The Hulk" Ferrigno still looks amazingly strong even after all the years as the big green monster!!!

OWP: I was literally tricked on this one, too. I would've went with the bloody coats.  :roll:

Any #: Picnic Baskets are a lot better than a piggy bank, anyday.

Grand: Swimming with sharks on this one for me, I would've just bailed. Poor Linda didn't come out of the water.

Squeeze: Very nice.

Showcases: A showcase deemed "The Lap of Luxury" doesn't necessarily means it feels that way and Henry was just sucked in.   :wotc:

A 3-star show.

Ashley has REALLY turned out low recently! Looks like Dublin has turned cheap too.

This was the rerun today (7/21/09)...

Let me tell you, I was pumped to see REAL showcases, even if there was a :frts: which is close enough.  SC2 was dissapointing but there were still technically 3 prizes.  Games were fun, and there were a couple of bloopers (5 people called down, Helen taking forever to come on down) that kept this episode interesting.  Great episode, best I've seen this summer (I haven't watched very many).

Also could someone put the 5 people called down on YouTube?
