Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 ... See full summary »
Hosted by Jim Perry, were contestants are asked questions about how 100 people answered a poll question then played a card game where they tried to guess whether the next card drawn from a deck in a sequence would be higher or lower.
In this game show, contestants answer trivia questions and then compete in a timed race through the supermarket. The team that has the most valuable items in their shopping cart at the end of the race wins.
"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

The announcer refers to the show as "The Fabulous 60-minute Price is Right." However the show is only 60 minutes if you include the commercials. Without commercials, the actual running time is closer to 40-45 minutes. See more »

Bob Barker reminding you: help control the pet population. Have your pet spayed or neutered. Goodbye, everybody!

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 »
I was a freshman in college in 1972 when the revamped show appeared on CBS Daytime. If there was no class scheduled in the Prue-VCR days, we'd gather in somebody's room to watch the show. It was not uncommon for residents of my dormitory to look out the window, see a friend coming, and yell their name followed by "COME ON DOWN!!!". Fast forward 34 years later to 2006, and the show has just as much-perhaps greater-following among college aged kids. And not just viewers. Look at the audience. Look at how many college students become contestants. In a day and age where everything eventually becomes old and younger generation moves on to the next biggest thing, it's comforting to see kids 18 years old enjoying the same thing I did when I was 18. (We'll address how that makes me feel old at 51 at a different time. LOL)
