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

One of the best game shows in TV History. Hosted by the classy and legendary professional Bob Barker!
15 June 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Come on Down, but need I say more this is a long running TV classic that millions of Americans loved each and everyday! So good you have a loud and cheering audience and contestants are selected to make bids on prices of showcase items for then a chance to compete at higher prices and win big money! And many of the games and items shown are tough, but it's so interesting to try and price items. Bob Barker always made it watchable, he's a legend so classy and professional his voice and hosting is classic he was such a hard worker for so many years. A final note the showcase models were fantastic to watch also it made the male viewer take his eye and mind off the prizes for awhile at least especially when the screen showed sexy beauties Nikki Ziering or Dian Parkinson. Really a daytime TV legendary classic!
