The carousel you speak of doesn't appear to be spinning at the moment. If my calculations are correct, Steve Harvey has hosted the show longer than everyone except Richard Dawson.

Sometimes a carousel isn't horrible as long as it stops when you actually get a good host.

Yeah, and Steve's one of two sitcom star hosts, Richard Karn being the other

The TALK Is Right / Re: Pricing Games Question
« Last post by TPIRfan#9821 on Today at 10:03:57 AM »
What pricing games need to be retired, and what games should be unretired and return, let me know below.

What I am getting is say one game that is retired that I want back and another in active rotation that I want gone.

I want Superball to be back (and crush all of our timings) because of the fun of skee-ball, and I want Stack the Deck to be gone because it is so stinking hard.

Out In Left Field / Re: bonus round better than the main game?
« Last post by isucgv on Today at 09:34:36 AM »
I would have to agree with the Winner's Circle on Pyramid.  Much more drama and excitement than the main game.  I also like the bonus round on Classic Concentration.

Card Sharks' Money Cards, Match Game's Super Match/Head-to-Head, LMAD's Big Deal

How are these significantly better than the main game, except for more money?

At least TPIR does not have a carousel of changing hosts like (cough cough) Family Feud does.

Austin Dillon brings the number 3 car to victory lane after Jimmie Johnson runs out of fuel. First win for the number 3 in years upon being reinstated.

I'd quit if I knew I'd have absolutely no chance of spelling out the word CAR, because of three or more of the same letter showing up.

I think that Drew's job is safe for another 10-15 years, and who knows what well-known names will be brought up by then? At least TPIR does not have a carousel of changing hosts like (cough cough) Family Feud does.

It's important to remember in addition to bettering your chances of spelling C-A-R, you also will win $5,000.00 ($1,000.00 per card) by getting one of the prices of the small prizes exactly right  Compare this to earlier in Spelling Bee's run when the maximum was $2,500.00 ($500.00 per card).  Inflation aside, by making the prices a bit more challenging on a game like Spelling Bee, it allows the producers to ease up on the difficulty level of traditionally harder car games.

I'm not sure what this has to do with anything...you only win cash in Spelling Bee if you quit the game, and most contestants don't do that.

Scott, what would you say would normally hurt the prize budget more -- shelling out $5,000 or giving away the car?
