I wonder if Drew ever noticed the setup error during OWP.
What was the setup error?

The TALK Is Right / Re: Range game question

Why don't they make the scale $6000 and make the rangefinder $1000?

Contestants would actually have to price the prize like they did in the 70s instead of simply stopping the rangefinder somewhere around the middle when it feels right since most folks don't know the price of prizes to the nearest $150.

I just want to know when are they going to increase the range to $250 and make the scale span $1,000 instead of only $600? The odds/proportion would be the same (range finder takes up 25% of the scale in either scenario) but it would be a slight improvement.  This is way overdue; prizes aren't $1,500 any more in this game!

This show had everything , laughs , jokes , contestants wearing the same shirt , the 1st IUFB overbid of the season , and Drew channeling his inner Bob and doing a great job hosting today's show.
If the show wants to win back to back emmys , they probably would use this show as a great example.

Curious as to whether they were using the classic reveal, I checked out the beginning of Bonus Game. When they showed where the small prizes were in relation to the game board, it looked like it was impossible for the contestant to actually see what they were pricing. Did anybody else get that impression?

I just got around to watching this today, and I had the same thought but figured it was just an illusion caused by the camera angle.  I'm glad to know it wasn't just me, although I'm also puzzled as to why that would happen.

Katherine MacGregor, probably best known for playing the often-annoying Mrs. Oleson on Little House On the Prairie, passed away on November 13th.

Quite often, preempted shows have been pushed all the way to the end of June the past few seasons, regardless of the built-in weeks that are mostly off around the holidays.

Not this time, at least for the one outstanding show of S47 so far.

And now you probably know why the hole in "Hole in One...or Two" isn't in the center of the circle any more (it's slightly closer to the player).

I am assuming that the reason it used to be in the center was, if the putt went to either side, the rebound would also miss by the same amount; however, a putt that "rimmed the cup" or passed right over the hole would rebound back in. However, if the hole is moved forward, the rebound angles of pretty much every putt except going straight over the hole will miss as well.
