Storyline

"Come on down!" "The Price Is Right" -- hosted by Bob Barker until 2007 and Drew Carey thereafter -- features a wide variety of games and contests with the same basic challenge: Guess the prices of everyday (or not-quite-everyday) retail items. Four contestants, all of whom are seated in one of the wildest audiences in daytime game-show history, are called to the stage to play a preliminary pricing round. That winner joins the host on stage for one of more than 70 different pricing games. After three such games, the contestants spin a big wheel -- hoping to get as close to $1 as possible -- in the "Showcase Showdown." The two highest winners of that round advance to the final, where prizes could be cars or roomsful of furniture. A trio of models presents the prizes. Written by Jwelch5742

Goofs

If a contestant won the right to a bonus spin in a Showcase Showdown (spinning the large wheel), Bob Barker always warned the contestant that the wheel had to make at least one revolution during the bonus spin or "it doesn't count and you don't get to spin again." The fact that the contestant would not get another chance to spin means that the insufficient spin WOULD count. See more »

Quotes

Bob Barker: [just before the Range Finder in Range Game starts moving] Don't press the button until you want to stop the Range Finder, because we can't start it again for thirty-seven hours.

Bridging Generations
2 May 2006 | by DMMeltzerSee all my reviews

I was a freshman in college in 1972 when the revamped show appeared on CBS Daytime. If there was no class scheduled in the Prue-VCR days, we'd gather in somebody's room to watch the show. It was not uncommon for residents of my dormitory to look out the window, see a friend coming, and yell their name followed by "COME ON DOWN!!!". Fast forward 34 years later to 2006, and the show has just as much-perhaps greater-following among college aged kids. And not just viewers. Look at the audience. Look at how many college students become contestants. In a day and age where everything eventually becomes old and younger generation moves on to the next biggest thing, it's comforting to see kids 18 years old enjoying the same thing I did when I was 18. (We'll address how that makes me feel old at 51 at a different time. LOL)
