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

Trivia

In 1980, Vanna White was a contestant. She never got out of Contestants' Row. See more »

Goofs

If a contestant won the right to a bonus spin in a Showcase Showdown (spinning the large wheel), Bob Barker always warned the contestant that the wheel had to make at least one revolution during the bonus spin or "it doesn't count and you don't get to spin again." The fact that the contestant would not get another chance to spin means that the insufficient spin WOULD count. See more »

Quotes

[Various openings from the fourth season with the shining, twinkling white lights border and the flashing credits, varying from "One Hour" and "Hour Power"; theme music play and audience cheers and applauds]
Johnny Olson: And here it is! The first ever hour-long game show in television! The fabulous new 60-minute "Price Is Right"!

Crazy Credits

During the closing credits from 1992 until 2007 when Drew Carey took over, the announcer would continue to announce that the show was "A Mark Goodson Production", mainly in his honor. See more »

LONG LIVE THE PRICE IS RIGHT!
7 June 1999 | by DanorganSee all my reviews

I guess I am a Game Show fanatic! I have just finnished commentnig on Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! I love to watch the Price is Right on days off from School and over the summer. I like seeing the prizes and the reactions you get from people when they win something. It's a great show and I am so glad that CBS still shows it.
