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

Mark Goodson and Bill Todman wanted to revive the original version of The Price is Right, but were met with resistance, being told it was too stale and bland for 1970s daytime television. At the same time, they saw how successful Let's Make a Deal was with Monty Hall and wanted to create their own version of an audience participation show, but couldn't figure out a concept. When CBS brought on Bud Grant to oversee daytime programming, he was interested in reviving game shows, which CBS removed from their daytime lineup in the mid 1960s. He talked to Goodson and Todman about a new version of The Price is Right, one that was more current and fresh. Eventually, they combined the original concept of bidding on merchandise from The Price is Right with concepts from Let's Make a Deal, including pulling contestants from the audience, playing a variety of games on stage, and presenting the prizes with bright lights and loud sound effects. Bud liked the idea and added the new show, along with Gambit and The Joker's Wild, to his new lineup of game shows, which premiered on September 4th, 1972. See more »

The best game show on Television!
13 May 2004 | by (Pickerington, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Price is Right is without a doubt the best not to mention the longest running game show in the history of Television. I have watched the Price is Right ever since I was a little boy and I still watch watch it to this day. But, Here is what makes the Price is Right the best game show and that is none other then BOB BARKER! Bob Barker is the best host ever and he is the one that that makes the show the success that it always has been. I can almost a sure you that once Bob Barker either retires or dies that the show will never make it because no matter who they get to replace Bob the game show just would not be the same because Bob Barker is a one of a kind and there is only one of him!
