Season 52 New Studio Experience!
« on: July 28, 2023, 03:26:52 PM »
Today is the day!  Taping of our favorite game show has officially commenced at a new studio for the first time since the current CBS iteration began 51 years ago (not counting the one-off Vegas 30th Anniversary Special).  At least a handful of Golden-Road members are present for today’s taping sessions and will surely begin filling us in shortly on all the changes we can expect to see on television this September.

Rather than continuing the previous speculation conversations, this occasion is definitely worthy of its own thread as we’ll finally have some long-awaited answers to the many questions we’ve all had for many months now!

I’m definitely curious what the opening line is now!
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Around 150 in the audience based on early reports on Twitter (or X or Elon's love child or whatever it's called today)

Numbers I saw went to 165. Capacity might be 170 if wheelchairs are the last row. Don’t fear - it’s the same ol’ Price is Right we love. They were very clever with the Race Game curtain.

JSYK, capacity of TBBS was close to 330, assuming capacity is the standard-bearer.  Did anyone get “starred”?

The opening spiel was as follows:

“AAAAAHHHWOOOOOOOYAAAAYWEEEEYEAAAAAH”

for 40 seconds
Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

Know at least one person in the audience today; per Drew, Magic # has officially been retired.

With the electronics issues the last two years, I am not even remotely surprised, but sad all the same as I loved it.

(Edited: Was not aware the prop at least made the move. Game's still dead, though.)

Drew also mentioned the game was boring and there was no reason it shouldn’t have been won every time.

I was at today's 1st taping but as per show policy I will not be spilling a lot. I do look forward to discussing the details when it airs. This might also result in the largest section of blue rows in CSS in quite some time.

There is an explanation behind the ticket blast but I'm not sure if its disclosure is kosher or not.

Lots of first show hiccups in the new processing but this will get better with practice.

Perhaps Magic's eggcrate will live on in Check-Out.

Expect a megathread post shortly. There were a lot of us there. We want to get everything together and keep the spoilers at bay. Don't want to get the show mad at us!

Everyone at the show was great as always. Loved being in studio.


All I'll say is this: If I were a casual viewer, I might not notice that many changes.
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.

Glad to hear the set is very close to the original. Huge sigh of relief from me. I plan on going in February assuming date availability. Can't wait to see the show in person for the first time in 15 years and ride some roller coasters! xlx
