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 Productions, which produced The Price Is Right, was sold to Pearson Television in 1999. In September 2000, a Pearson executive met with the employees of The Price Is Right and told the employees they are pleased to acquire the show and they love the way it is and will keep everything the same. On October 19, 2000, Pearson executives called another meeting. This time employees were summoned into a room individually, there they met with a male producer and a woman from Human Resources. Sherrell Paris, Sharon Friem, Paul Alter, Linda Riegert, Janice Pennington, and Kathleen Bradley were told their services were no longer needed and dismissed them. Pearson executives offered Pennington and Bradley work on a future special about models, both declined in favor of financial packages. Other employees were laid off in 2001 and Pearson representatives later said the motivation was economic. See more »

A Priceless Gameshow
11 July 2001 | by (Southern California) – See all my reviews

This show rules! Its really cool how a show that has been on since 1972 continues to do so well, and I think because its just really entertaining. They often have a lot of really good prizes, like some really good cars. I think this is a very enjoyable show for people who love to watch GameShows. I hope this comes to GameShow Network..

Thanks for Reading..
