They messed up on at least 3 episodes near the end of the batch: 5354D was missing the initial 5, 5361 and 5362 are labelled as 5354 and 5355, and what we're assuming is 5371D is labelled as 5361D.

Speaking of 5355D, Tom Kennedy was called on down before IUFB#5 to promote Body Language, premiering the following Monday.

I watch the channel through the Pluto TV website and was curious whether people who watch it via other methods have experienced the same minor technical difficulties recently.

For the past couple of weeks, somewhere between zero and two times per episode, the show will come back from commercial, but after about ten or fifteen seconds, the video will jump back to the beginning of coming back from commercial, play for maybe thirty seconds or so, then jump forward to get back on track. The problem isn't consistent with how often it happens or in which act of the show it happens.

In today's 10:00 a.m. Pacific (1:00 p.m. Eastern) airing -- mislabeled in Pluto's guide but actually 5361D -- the volume on the episode was extremely low and became static for most of the sixth pricing game into most of the second Showcase Showdown. I'm assuming this was an error contained within the video file of the episode itself, as the commercials played at the normal volume.

For the most current cycle, where can I see what episodes were aired and at what time?

And what episodes were included in the latest cycle? Apparently the Pluto guide has been way off during this one. It says they're on 5364 right now, which is obviously wrong.

S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

- Holy smokes. Look at how much this dude won. That one-day high (for a CBS game show) won't stand for long, as some ice cream truck driver obliterates it a month down the road......

I watch via the Pluto TV app on my Apple TV - and everything you described, I experienced as well.

Same with the Pluto App, both via tablet and Samsung Phone.

I watch on Roku and mine messes up frequently too. It does the same thing with the PBR Bull Riding, MST3K, and Rifftrax channels.

Also, that playing of Master Key with Bob breaking the key in half with a karate kick was priceless!
2,565 days until I am re-eligible to be a contestant on The Price Is Right!

No longer a Push Over!

Congratulations to 2021 PBR World Champion Bull Rider Jose Vitor Leme and 2021 PBR Bull of the Year #124 Woopaa!

Interestingly they have converted 5374, three down from the last of this batch (sorry for the confusion) but are going to catch the loop before it.

Thanks for this.  If this can be a resource, could it be edited into the lead post of the thread?
They can be close at the top, too.

I can confirm this was an issue with the video file of the episode itself and not an issue introduced by Pluto. The captioning for the episodes also went out and occasionally displayed (LOUD BUZZING) instead of actual dialogue. I doubt this issue will be fixed. I think it will be, if addressed at all, pulled from the rotation.
YES! You have them all right! You win $2,500! You will putt from the closest line!

Jhc2010 putts from the closest line and WINS!!!

Congratulations! Those 2 cars are yours! Now we go to the Showcase Showdown! You will spin first. Pick a number between 1 and 20.

Awesome, but why did they reveal his showcase second if he was under by $5K and the other player was over? In that situation, shouldn't the overbid have been revealed second?

probably so they could go straight into the "You're the biggest winner" announcement?

As far as anyone can tell, this was a problem with the master tape.  I can't believe Pluto actually aired it.  I'll be shocked if it gets run again this time around.

Holy smokes. Look at how much this dude won. That one-day high (for a CBS game show).

Iíve done some adding up of some of the episodes where Golden Road was played and won, or the $25,000 prize won in Plinko, then figured in an $11,000 Showcase Showdown win, a $100 bonus for a perfect IUFB bid, and Double Showcase Win.

Itís not happened but in several early-to-mid 1980s shows Iím sure it was possible for a contestant to have won well more than $50,000 total. (Which would have been completely awesome had it ever happened.)

And if that had happened, the contestant would have had to donate some of his/her winnings to a charitable donation of their choice because of the CBS winnings limit and how much contestants could keep up to a maximum of at that point. I think the announcer would have had to make a disclaimer of it in post-production.

Not unless they cracked $75,000 (the way I understood it, after November 1984 you would retire at $50K, could keep up to $75K), which I heavily doubt would've been possible in the 80s on TPIR.
