This version was not required to be aired in the late afternoon or early evening, thereby avoiding a clearance problem that plagued a 1985-86 syndicated Price is Right hosted by Tom Kennedy (which resulted in many late night time slots for the series as prime slots were unavailable). Many stations were able to air the show during daytime hours. In some markets, The New Price Is Right was paired with Family Feud
(1988), which was also given a updated 21st century-ready set, jazzy theme song, and saw the return of Richard Dawson
as its host for its seventh season. See more
