Absolutely no shame in the bail-out on Punchy, I would've done the same. Check-Out was painful, it seemed the contestant actually had at least some clue as to the prices of the SP's.

Out In Left Field / Re: Favorite win cues
« Last post by Grand_game2004 on January 14, 2019, 12:41:55 PM »
One of my favorite modern win cues is the car alarm sound used when someone on H2 found the key that started the car. Hearing that car alarm sound just excites me. I remember only one instance where someone had tried for the car multiple times but failed. Then they eliminated all the bad keys except one.

It would've been cool if I could've gotten a clean copy of the win cue on Hollywood Squares with John Davidson. I think there had been a music cue along with some alarm sound.

Sale of the Century: Love the alarm sound used when all the bonus prizes are won. It's also used on Scrabble when someone wins the Scrabble Sprint by getting 2 words right within 10 seconds or less.

I meant to make a reference to the car starting on Hollywood Squares with John Davidson

The TALK Is Right / Re: Which Games Could Be Improved?

Here's my simple solution to improving Stack The Deck: burn it in a fire.

No, I'm serious. Get rid of it entirely. That game sucks. It's so heavily stacked against the contestant and it almost always results in a loss. It's time for that game to be retired.

Drew every time before Check Out is played: "PeOpLe WiN tHiS gAmE aLl ThE tImE!"

Seriously Drew, it's time to stop that. Looking at Qwizx stats, dating back to season 44, that game's been won 12 times and lost 23 times. With today's loss, it's now 24 losses. So in the last 36 games of Check Out, that game has a win percentage of 33.3%. This game does NOT get won all the time, Drew. Someone in the production team needs to get into his ear so he can stop saying that stupid catch-phrase every time this game is played because it's gotten old and annoying.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Question about how contestant order is selected
« Last post by Alfonzo on January 14, 2019, 04:48:11 AM »
Do they call the contestants they like the most as part of the first four, and the one that made it out of a group of "borderline" audience members as the final contestant called down?

It seemed that when Bob was around they would often call some of the more interesting or colorful contestants after the First Four, especially second, so Bob could get a chance to interview them and show how colorful they were.

Does this part ring true for anybody who has been to the show recently?

I would think that by now Drew would know which jokes are going to play well to the audience.

Heavy on pot jokes. Some landed and some didn't. A lot of his schtick is wandering around the stage and calling on audience members at random and asking about their lives, and then making jokes based off of that. A couple times he starts talking to somebody who under pressure doesn't know how to respond, and he said, "Can you be honest with me? Are you high right now?" Got a laugh. One of his most frequent jokes is to mime smoking a joint when playing a "baked" character and give an obviously ridiculous analysis of what a contestant's told him, he did that about two or three times every break.

Probably should mention the first impression I got from him during the first break really caught me off guard. A rocket scientist (who we met in line) won a car in the first game. During the break Drew built off of that mentioning he was really into the show Strange Angel on CBS All Access, and he wandered off talking about how the show was about a brilliant rocket scientist who fell in the world of the occult and followed Aleister Crowley and performed sex magic rituals and other stuff.

Like, we've been in line for three hours with people who are absolutely thrilled to be here. We watched George Gray's hype video. We had a dance party as soon as we got in the studio. Everyone's full of adrenaline, we just saw five of us people get called down and one of the guys we met in line just got to come on down and is going home with a car. This is a dream come true to be here, could we maybe not talk about Aleister Crowley right this moment? It's kind of a buzzkill.

There was one moment where he called on a Canadian audience member who mentioned he was working in the US. Drew retorted jokingly, "All right, so what job did you take from a hardworking American?" George chimed in, "Build the wall! Build the wall!" I laughed. I could see why some wouldn't.

Overall most of the jokes got a good response. He's a comedian. He takes risks, they don't always pan out, but I'd say upwards of 75% landed. I particularly like effort he makes to spotlight individual contestants and members of the audience. That's when he got his best jibes in, and I felt like I knew the contestants so much better in the studio than I do on the show. We really were rooting for one another, it felt like an enormous family of 300 people, and Drew really felt like he was on "our" side. I really got the vibe he wants to stick it to the man, meet people from all over, and give away as much of CBS' stuff as he can.

Quote from: Washington Post Article
His humor is not always the audience’s humor. At a recent taping, he makes frequent jokes about contestants being high that are largely ignored.

I would think that by now Drew would know which jokes are going to play well to the audience.

I know I'm playing into the fan stereotype here, but the first thing I noticed is that they did get the Showcase Showdown and Showcase terminology correct.

Nope. Last time I checked there were two spots in the Showcase and three in the Showcase Showdown.

Also, their correction puts to rest the age-old debate over the cash option. Yes, it may have existed at one time, but not anymore.
I remember seeing before that a cash equivalent could be given for at least some electronic items won, and that they gave cash rather than awarding the Apple product that was the prize at one time. Not sure if there are other examples of cash equivalents actually being available.
