[Youtube "UmsyEMFYsus"] Somebody got very lucky on The Price Is Right on Thursday. A contestant named Andrea was given three chances to guess the correct price of a Hyundai Sonata in order to win the brand new car.

Manuela just gave you a car!" host Drew Carey told the contestant. "The game is over, folks." Arbelaez immediately covered her mouth in shock when she'd realized what she'd done and went to hide.

Seth Meyers made an absolute ass of Ted Cruz

18 March 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I can appreciate David Letterman unnerving Paris Hilton or Jay Leno razzing Hugh Grant about his dalliances in the red light district, but for the most part I just can't sit through uncomfortable talk show appearances. They're too insane. The audience picks one talker to side with, hostility leads to curtness, and suddenly everyone is just angry and unfunny and overheated. I'd rather just watch "Wheel of Fortune," thanks.  But Seth Meyers' chat with the arguably smug Sen. Ted Cruz is a worthy viewing. Get through the discomfort and Cruz's ridiculous "The world's on fire!" diatribe and just enjoy the "Late Night" host being witty and damning.   »

Pat Sajak Makes Fun of Dancing With the Stars—and Tom Bergeron Dishes It Right Back to the Wheel of Fortune Host!

17 March 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So this is what happens when hosts stop being nice and start getting real. Real funny on Twitter, that is. It appears that Pat Sajak was one of the millions who tuned into the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars last night, because he took to Twitter on Monday to critique the new line-up of celebs, sending forth a real humdinger of a diss. "Might be time to change 'Dancing with the Stars' to 'Dancing with People Who Agree to Be on Dancing with the Stars.'" the veteran Wheel of Fortune host tweeted. So, who wants to buy an "O"?  As in "Oh, snap!" But DWTS host Tom Bergeron wasn't going »

This Week in TV News: ‘The Walking Dead’ spinoff gets picked up for at least two seasons

14 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Week in TV News is a compliment to the Week in Review feature, which will now be focused on film news. 

AMC has guaranteed two seasons to the prequel companion series of The Walking Dead, as per THR. The announcement was made earlier this week, and comes as somewhat unsurprising news. The Walking Dead continues to be one of the channel’s highest rated shows, with its popularity showing no signs of waning as the show’s fifth season rolls along. In addition, AMC has found similar commercial and critical success with Better Call Saul, its new series that is itself a spinoff of Breaking Bad.

There’s no set title for the series as of yet, and working titles have included Fear The Walking Dead and Cobalt. The first season, much like the show that spawned this spinoff, will consist of six episodes, with creator Robert Kirkman working »

Alex Trebek Renews ‘Jeopardy!’ Contract Through 2018

14 March 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alex Trebek has more questions — and answers — in his future.

Although he’s dropped hints in recent years about retiring, the “Jeopardy!” host just reupped his contract through the 2017-18 season.

The 74-year-old Trebek joins fellow Sony Pictures Television game show hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White, who hold down the fort at “Wheel of Fortune.”

“The enduring success of ‘Wheel of Fortune’ and ‘Jeopardy!’ serves as a testament to the talents of these remarkable hosts,” the exec producer of both series, Harry Friedman, said in a statement. “The renewal of their contracts continues the special bond that Pat, Vanna and Alex have formed with generations of TV viewers.”

The game show veteran reportedly made $10 million a year with his last contract.

Now in its 31st season, “Jeopardy!” averages 10.7 million viewers, while “Wheel of Fortune” reels in 11.4 million viewers in its current 32nd season.

Is This the Worst Round of 'Jeopardy' Ever?

13 March 2015 5:15 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When Alex Trebek says "this was not one of our greatest days," you feel it for eternity.

Three poor Jeopardy contestants learned that the hard way after a painful couple of rounds on the long-running game show, where no one could seem to correctly answer anything and left two of them in the red. Trebek's disappointment hit hard.

This meant, as he chillingly explained, that they would not be moving on to the last round.

'Wheel of Fortune' Contestant Can’t Solve This Disney Puzzle

7 March 2015 5:20 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"Nooooo!"

That's the sound of an audience member who gasps in disbelief when a woman guessed a seemingly easy Disney puzzle incorrectly on Wheel of Fortune recently.

While there have been plenty of fails on the game show, this guess is one of the most unbelievable.

The puzzle lists Snow White's dwarfs, and the woman guesses all but one correctly.

There's Dopey, Grumpy, Doc, Bashful, Happy, Sleepy and who?

The woman guessed "Sneaky," and while that would make a good dwarf name, it won't win the puzzle.

The contestant after her guessed the name correctly as, "Sneezy."

Wheel of Fortune Contestant Fails Horribly When Trying to Solve This Disney Puzzle—Watch the Unfortunate Clip!

6 March 2015 3:10 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Remember that amazing time when a guy solved the Wheel of Fortune puzzle with just one letter on the board? Well, this is pretty much the complete opposite of that. A recent contestant clearly ditched what apparently was a necessary recap of Disney characters before taking on the game show, because she practically had the entire puzzle solved, but it was one sneaky letter that ruined it all for her. (To be fair, this woman was probably just super nervous and is seriously kicking herself right now, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it happened and since it's hilarious and sad at the same time, it must be shared with the Internet.

We bet there’s one “Wheel of Fortune” contestant who’s feeling a bit grumpy right about now. And probably a bit bashful.

See video: Watch ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Whiz Solve Puzzle With One Letter The puzzle, under the category “Characters,” listed the Seven Dwarfs from the classic children’s story Snow White.

Syndication Ratings: Trio of Debmar-Mercury Shows Hit Series Highs

4 March 2015 11:27 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

February was a memorable month for producer-distributor Debmar-Mercury, as all three of its firstrun syndicated series — “Family Feud,” “The Wendy Williams Show” and “Celebrity Name Game” — notched series-high ratings.

According to Nielsen estimates for the week ending Feb. 22, “Family Feud” continued its scorching season by matching its all-time high household rating (7.2), first set three weeks earlier. The Steve Harvey-hosted gameshow, distributed by Debmar-Mercury and from producer FremantleMedia North America, was up 11% vs. the previous week and 26% higher than the same frame a year ago.

Season-to-date, “Family Feud” is averaging a 6.2 household rating and is up in that category and most other demos by about 20%. For the first time, it also ranks as syndication’s top-rated gameshow in women 25-54, moving ahead of “Wheel of Fortune.”

In its sixth season, “Wendy Williams,” produced and distributed by Debmar-Mercury, set another household ratings record (2.0) during the week ending Feb. 22, up 5% from the »

Paul Rudd, John Oliver, Louis C.K. Go All Out for ‘Night of Too Many Stars’ Fundraiser

1 March 2015 9:54 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It takes a commitment to pull off a star-packed comedy benefit show that has raised $18 million and counting for autism-related education and support programs since 2003.

Nowhere was that commitment more vividly displayed than with Paul Rudd’s performance Saturday at Comedy Central’s “Night of Too Many Stars” taping, emceed by Jon Stewart at New York’s Beacon Theater.

Simply put, Rudd bared his soul and other bodily cavities for the sake of the cause, namely raising money for the New York Collaborates for Autism org. Using a “Wheel of Fortune”-style spinning wheel dubbed “Wheel of Rudd,” the actor invited audience members to spin for the chance to do something to him.

One gave him a slap, one landed on “Travolta face-touching,” a reference to last Sunday’s Oscar telecast, and one landed on “baby bird,” which involved an audience member chewing up a few bites of a Zabar »
