A game show that brings us all together from generation to generation. A game show that's been on the air in some form for eight different decades (a feat only matched by To Tell the Truth). Hosts that bring us priceless memories, Bill Cullen, Tom Kennedy, Doug Davidson, Dennis James, Bob Barker and Drew Carey. A game show where we watch average civilians win lifechanging prizes and amounts of money. It's the show that brings this website together. Congratulations to 50 years of The Price is Right. Here's to 50 more!

That was one nice looking Porsche. I want! (Maybe not in white though 😊.)

Very cool to see the scenes of all of the permanent announcers over the years.

The salute to Bob Barker was very moving. Time marches on.

Alright. I cant take this anymore.
Why do you even still watch the show then? You clearly are hate-watching it at this point. All you have done for the past several years is nitpick about the shows inner workings, budget, and if it doesnt meet the same standard that you have set, then its bad and they don't know what they are doing. You inserted your ridiculous opinions on nearly every single episode and i swear you're just trolling at this point.

I will second this. Wayoshi never mentions anything good (at least, not that I've seen) and always posts about the "bad". Doing so tonight is like showing up to someone's birthday party and complaining they didn't blow out the candles or open the presents to your liking (I think that's called being a "Debby Downer", if I'm not mistaken).

The fact is that there was a lot to like on tonight's show. We got a touching tribute to Bob, we got to see quite a few old clips that we thought would never be broadcast again on CBS, some exciting wins, all from a show that's been on the air for 50 freaking years. A lot of shows would absolutely love to have that kind of longevity. I get that the current regime doesn't always do things to everyone's liking, but my God, you should be able to put it all aside for one night.

Insanity: doing the same exact thing over and over expecting different results.

Million Dollar Plinko is insanity.

Once again, Million Dollar Plinko is insanity.
They'll never learn.

Oh, they know it's insanity. However, they've had inflated center hits before, and if it happens, it happens. If not, at least the $50k center slot is more symbolic than just forcing a 7-digit number.

After hearing most of the special guests were in-house at CBS, I was shocked when Vanna White modeled the luggage. Otherwise, I don't really have much to add besides a well done. Sure, I could kvetch on how they misspelled Columbia, or how they literally used the same boat that appeared in the showcases literally 11 hours prior, but with the amount of clips they crammed into this beefy lineup, I was impressed that they pulled off a two-hour show.

And there were a few treats in the games also. Hole for another refurbished car? Grocery Game for 3 rooms? Golden Road appearing in the second half of the show for the first time ever? There was a lot of fun to be had. Would I have personally wanted to see stuff like the house here instead of the daytime show? Not really, and although I would have appreciated a larger budget, like upping the bonuses on the wheel or an even more luxury car than a BMW in the showcases, it ultimately just wasn't necessary.

Honestly, the outtakes themselves were worth the price of admission.

Onto 100 years!

They used a clip from my show! Drew calling Rachel "April" happened on 4/15/19, and in fact those headphones she was modeling are the one bid I won  :-D.

Humblebragging aside, this was a thoroughly enjoyable show and I'm glad they gave it two hours it deserved. I loved seeing Golden Road 6th; I just wish John had known to guess the lowest digit on the Porsche. So close! But overall, lots of great clips and funny moments throughout the special, and one worth keeping the recording of for a long time.  Just incredible what this show has done.

Here's another "nitpick", though - why was the copy for the BMW just "a new car"? That's a luxury SUV right there!

Let me reiterate: Wayoshi is breaking no site rules. He is perfectly allowed to make posts criticizing what he sees on TV.

Those of you jumping down his throat, however, are breaking the rules.

If you don't like what Wayoshi or anyone else has to say, Ignore them and you won't have to read their posts anymore.

I too noticed the wildly incorrect date of the debut of the Rainbow Wheel. 1981 instead of 1975! That's a difference of 5-6 years. Wonder what happened?

It was also interesting to see Golden Road played last when it is typically played first.

Lastly, I think it would have been nice to see Bob make an appearance, considering he is indelibly linked to the show. However, the guy is 97 years old and judging by the April Fools 2015 clips it was probably a wise decision not to have him appear. The tribute montage made up for this I think.

Absolutely amazing show, and I'm not just saying that because of all the pricing games wins. So many great and nostalgic moments and arguably the best pricing game line up in the show's history.

This is why I'm a strong proponent of the show being condensed to 5 pricing games and a single showcase showdown. Regular hour long shows have very little breathing room as is and cutting out some of the filler would really open up the opportunity for much better line-ups and for personalities to shine.

When's the last time a "Plinko cycle" occurred?

The last daytime occurrence of every slot ( including 0 ) being hit in a Plinko playing , 1/13/17

I enjoyed it for the look back more than the new game play. The games were good, and the prizes, but it was the rest that made it special to me.

Sitting and watching made me feel like a kid again.

This was just an excellent show, and a wonderful salute to the 50 year history of the show and many of its main figures most of all Bob. I don't think there's much more we could have wanted to see. It definitely didn't feel too long being two hours, it actually allowed things to move at a nice pace and be able to fit the clips, salutes, celebrity guests, etc in addition to the gameplay.

Over $10,000 jewelry as the first IUFB then a $1,299 iMac as the next one was weird. Quite a few trips tonight as well, the Hawaii trip was fitting though since it's our 50th state.

Lineup wise, I was definitely expecting Golden Road given golden anniversary (though definitely not last) and Plinko was a given, figured Back to 72 would be in, Cliff Hangers is the next most popular after Plinko, and Grocery Game since its from 72 and using the gold theme wasn't that surprising. The one surprise I thought was Hole in One rather than Any Number.

Very nice that they included all three permanent announcers before George, I was pretty surprised they used a few clips with Rich given how his exit from the show went. Could've done without reminding us of the Drewcases from season 37, but oh well. Good amount of clips of the classic Barker's Beauties as well, would've been nice for them to show Janice's car wreck too though since they showed Bob saying Rachel's was the 2nd.

They took a risk starting with Plinko given the possibility that the center slot would not be hit, but at least they got one hit. It was fitting to have the center slot $50,000.

Great job with the GP placement in Hole in One, the cleaner not being more expensive was the one tricky part. Thank goodness she made that second putt since her first one was well... bad.

The salute to the international versions was definitely a surprise, maybe they could've done something on the original Bill Cullen version instead.

Vanna White guest appearing was a nice treat, substituting for at least one of Price's classic models appearing.

Tough choice between the 1 or 2 in Golden Road, I had a feeling it would be 1 but I went with 2 also.

The tribute to Bob was touching, while it would've been great for him to make an appearance or at least a pre-recorded video message it's of course understandable why.

The really cheap for primetime first Showcase was the only real misstep tonight I thought, but they did offer a prize from a Showcase in the first episode which was nice.

Again, a great episode and wonderful tribute to this show that has been a staple of daytime television and several generations of viewers. CBS gave Price the celebration it deserves.

Is it just me or is it that every time the Yolanda clip airs the censor bar gets smaller and smaller? Almost makes me think there’s an unedited version sitting in Fremantle’s archive somewhere. Just an observation. Seeing clips from the early Drew era in HD was great, especially from the Drewcases with Rich. Always love seeing classic clips and this show did not disappoint! I think they did really good balancing the show while having almost 3x the runtime of a daytime show (1:24:50) and there didn’t really seem to be anything that felt like padding. There were some clips they dug up that I don’t think got as much airtime as they deserved, for example the clip they used of Bob introducing the Clock Game was a rather memorable playing, but it was only a two hour long show to be fair. Clever editing around the 1st episode and the fur coat. Overall a fun show and I really hope they share some of these clips in full online.

TPIR has been what is called "critic-proof" from the get-go. Critics thought the original was the end of civilization as we know it yet it became the top game, day and night, and stayed on for nine years. Likewise when it returned in 1972, they all had WTF thoughts (Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly called it "a vulgar orgy of crass consumerism"). Yet it still stands. The cast and crew are crying all the way to the bank. The masses have all learned to turn the other cheek and TPIR cemented its legacy as a TV institution. No other light entertainment show can make such a claim.

There may well be, since there's an unedited version (in less-than-stellar picture quality) that's been online since at least 2012 (and possibly earlier; that's when I acquired my copy of it).

As far as what I've seen around YouTube and based off of the above recap, the entire special was a delight!
The pacing was great, and the clips were put together very well. The tribute to Bob's legacy within Price was the one that got me to be honest.

Vanna's appearance was indeed a surprise and having been mentioned and featured on previous specials, I'd think it's great to have her really show up. Price missed the chance of playing One Away with her though.  ;-)

As for the prizes, I felt that it was a little less. They could've done the show ala MDS with more $4000+ prizes for OBs, and both the showcases valued $60,000+. They should've saved the best for this instead of the premiere week.

Finally, all of the montage of the original cast was perfect, and even with all the issues that surrounded the show, Price would never be Price without Jan, Holly, Dian, Johnny, Rod, and Rich. I've wished that they've mentioned other people associated with the show such as Anitra, Kathleen, Roger or Fingers, or even Bill and the NT hosts.

A spectacular special indeed, here's to 50 more for Price!

I've stated here many times that I do not like Drew and haven't watched the show for years.

However, I did watch this episode. I have to say that I did enjoy it. While I'm still not a fan of Drew at all, when he began the Bob Barker tribute segment with his 15 year acknowledgement, I did have pause in the fact that is has been 15 years since Bob retired...and it's been Drew that has kept the show running to get it to 50 years. I do appreciate that fact and thank him for his continued dedication to the show. I enjoyed much of the show aside from a couple of contestants, in my opinion only, going over the top with reactions. But the games, the clips, the prizes, Susan's shirt(!), and the sense of family on the show with the cast.

Congrats Drew and The Price is Right for 50 years. Maybe you'll turn me back to a loyal friend and true.

Absolutely great show!  Great to see all those flashback clips and all those prizes won.  Even though only 4 pricing games were won everybody still had good winnings as Michael won a lot of money on Plinko and John at least won 2 prizes on Golden Road.  Lucky for Susan they kept Hole in One or Two that way rather than change to its original format(although it didn't debut until 5/9/77).  That would've been a big shame if it was done that way, especially since she got to put from the 5th line.

That blooper segment must have been the reason they aired from 9-11 instead of from 8-10.

Glad to see Janice/Holly/Dian all get featured, especially with all the whispers of blacklisting over the years.  Was Kathleen in any of the clips?

RE: Showcases.  It appears the current group has slightly de-emphasized the showcase round with prizes and put more of that budget into the theme weeks.  It kind of make the end fall flat a bit, and it does show on the night shows.

I'm pretty confident (but not 100% sure) that the budget for this nighttime episode is independent of the budget for the daytime show.

I do appreciate the 3 rooms of furniture prize. That's a nice wink to the legacy of the show. Would have been more awesome if they played Splendido there, but it was an appropriate prize for to celebrate TPIR.

They are, but it's kind of difficult to budget bigger showcases when you are basically forced to potentially (HA) pay out $150K more in a luck-based game than previous nighttime shows.

I don't have much else to add, but I wanted to point out one thing I noticed.

When the show started, and the first prize was about to be shown, Drew said, "Let's see the first p—ITEM up for bids..." He's always said "prize up for bids", but it felt like he made a point to use the term that Bob did. I also noticed he said "Plinko chip" and not "disc". (Maybe he's changed that recently.) It almost felt like he watched some old Bob episodes to prepare for this.

Though, with that being the first game couldn't they have some items for the showcase and change them after the game (that is, have more costly options and leave them out, using cheaper items, if they wound up giving away a larger amount in Plinko)?

It wouldn't impact anything else (just like changing games has been done last minute when something fails to work correctly).

Well done show.  Drew definitely went out of his way to call out items like “Item Up for Bids”, but what I thought was the best was that he took time to tell the audience the Big Wheel round was the “Showcase Showdown”.  Definitely was a good blend of hitting the high notes for religious watchers (like here on the site) and first-timers.

Hole in One came out of nowhere.  That was very cool to see it in prime time.  And Grocery Game for 3 rooms!  Definitely felt like classic Price is Right in terms of production values.

Never noticed how much Bob has aged since retiring until they showed all 3 appearances back-to-back.  Can definitely see why he wasn’t there tonight.

Didn’t notice it when premiere week aired, but I’m really surprised they never upped the double dollar wheel bonus to $50,000.

Is this the very first time the current regime has acknowledged Rod and aired his voice?  Ever since Drew took over, they seemed to edit out Rod’s voice with Rich’s / George’s.  And very nice that they actually showed Rich.

Here's another "nitpick", though - why was the copy for the BMW just "a new car"? That's a luxury SUV right there!

Because the preceding line of copy was something like, "here are the three most-desired words to hear by a Price is Right contestant," and even though it was an SUV, I think most people would agree that "a NEW CAR!" is most associated with TPiR.

I finally saw this tonight, not realizing it had aired 3 months earlier. A very touching tribute to Bob Barker and all the great moments of the show. (Unfortunately there were a few scenes of the "Save the Price is Right" Era, but I can forgive those.)

I love the fact that they threw out the normal rules for pricing games and just used whichever six games they wanted. Golden Road sixth, two grocery games... stuff you'd only see if you're playing the home game. (Would have rather seen Any Number than Grocery Game, but that's just me.) The showcases were surprisingly not all that special... come on, you've got to put a Viper or something in that second showcase. Overall, though, a great two hours and a lot of fun.

^Any Number would've been nice, I was surprised they played Hole in One rather than Any #. Though since they offered a vintage car it had to be a game where the car isn't being priced.

FYI, the Dodge Viper discontinued in 2017.
