If only this puff piece could lead to some form of Price reruns on GSN/Buzzr...

No, it's probably Kate Spade.
I doubt that if only because plenty of designers have passed. It only adds value to their name and it wouldn't hardly be in bad taste if the show offered some of her products. I think most would probably consider it a tribute.

Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 6/19/2018

Bonkers offered the 2nd most expensive prize ever in that game , missing the record by a few bucks ( $9980 )

$9,980 is about the highest it could realistically get.

Doubling of points
was fairly common today;
some pain occured too.

If you went over,
it was probably two's fault -
home theaters suck.

Thursday is next time;
always amusing to see
who sends rerun bids.

Good choice going with the cash in Spelling Bee. $3000 is a nice prize in my book.

I would have won in Bonkers on my first try. i knew the first digit in the price was higher than 6, and then I just went with the odds on the others. :)

If i had to guess , its probably a trip to Japan.
It's probably the same situation with the other 3 shows that got bumped from earlier in the season to the next 2 weeks ( which was probably due to the hurricane in Puerto Rico )

The TALK Is Right / Re: What games are next to get the LCD treatment?
« Last post by RedWing512 on Yesterday at 01:56:50 PM »
I don't think anybody in this thread is saying that the show would use monitors to illegally change the outcome of the game. They're saying that to the casual viewer, who doesn't know that there are strict regulations regarding the manipulation of game shows, the use of monitors could create the appearance of potential impropriety. When the entire outcome of the game depends on the computer animation on the Bonus Game monitor (or, for equal time, the digital readout in Dice Game), a skeptical or conspiracy-minded person will naturally be suspicious. Especially when there's a loss.

And that's the thing that blows that whole argument out of the water--the show has been using digital readouts for reveals throughout the entirety of its run. Here's a list of all of the pricing games during Barker's tenure that, to the best of my knowledge, used readouts for such purposes:

Any Number, Balance Game (II), Dice Game, Make Your Move, Pass the Buck, Spelling Bee

If the show wanted to pull something sneaky, they could have done so in Season 1 just as easily as they can today with the LCD panels. But they won't. And even if the games didn't use LCDs, there will still be those who believe the games are rigged anyway. How the props are built won't change their minds.

I'll echo what Flerbert419 said.  It was a broad look at a "day in the life", with a heavy emphasis on what goes into producing an episode of Price is Right.  It was very much a fluff piece about the show, but it was still very interesting and enjoyable. 

Quote from: Flerbert419
There were no "Showcase Showdown" term misuses - which is one of the main things I look for to see if I should take something seriously. It seemed at one point like Joan was going to say it, but they cut her off at "Showcase"!
I caught that, and I suspect she actually DID say "Showcase Showdown", but they edited a "ding" in as they cut her off.

Although one might think the earthquake was a more likely reason, since it seems that they could have made the change sooner (being 2 weeks since her death) if it was for that?

Of course if people were sensible enough to realize these are taped in advance there would be no need to change them anyway, but then...
