Storyline

Running for over 30 years, this popular game show had a wide variety of contests and games, all with the same basic challenge: guess the prices of everyday (and some not-so-everyday) items. The contestants whose estimates were the closest would win the prizes and move on to more difficult games with even bigger prizes. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

After not seeing things eye-to-eye with the Executive Producer, Rich Fields parted ways with the show after 7 years as The Price Is Right Announcer on July 16, 2010, three days before the taping of the show's 39th season began. The producers decided to hold on-air auditions during Season 39 to fill the announcer position with an improv comic in hopes to make the program more of a "variety show within a game show". JD Roberto, Jeff Bryan Davis, Brad Sherwood, David H. Lawrence XVII, George Gray and Steve White all tried out on air for the announcing position. All of the "Guest" announcers are friends and ex co-workers of Drew Carey with the exception of Roberto and Gray who are friends of Mike Richards. Richards officially gave his friend George Gray the permanent announcer gig on April 18, 2011. See more »

An Institution
9 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

After over thirty years on the air, this I think it is right to call this show an institution. The Price Is Right is one of the few shows on television that is loved by young and old alike and that can be attributed to Bob Barker and the production staff who have done everything over the years to keep it fresh and innovative as well as exciting for the viewers. This is truly one show that I am proud to say that I grew up with.
