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

Bridging Generations
2 May 2006 | by DMMeltzerSee all my reviews

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)
