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

Originally Bill Cullen, the host of the original version, was considered as host of the new version of the show. However, his limp from polio and the staging of the new version made this improbable, so other hosts were considered. Mark Goodson and Bill Todman wanted veteran Dennis James to emcee the new version. He hosted an unaired TV pilot that they showed to CBS to demonstrate how the show would work. CBS Daytime VP Bud Grant liked the concept, but wasn't sold on James as host. Grant had been talking to Bob Barker about how he was bringing game shows back to daytime television on CBS and if he would be interested in hosting one of the shows. Barker, who was already hosting Truth or Consequences on daily syndication at the time, said he would be. Grant and Goodson/Todman came to a compromise: Barker would host the daytime version on CBS and James would host the weekly nighttime version on syndication. See more »

LONG LIVE THE PRICE IS RIGHT!
7 June 1999 | by See 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.
