The real reason why some Price is Right games are retired

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 31st 2010 1:01PM
Do you watch The Price is Right, either because you're sick, unemployed or both, and wonder why what happens to games like "On the Nose," "Poker Game" and "The Phone Home Game"? Ever wonder why some of The Price is Right's pricing games go to that big "Showcase Showdown" in the sky?

Do not question the mighty awesomeness of daytime game show gods! Their reasoning for taking some games before their time are sound and righteous in ways not meant for us mere mortals to understand. Also, some of them had the potential to critically injure or even kill someone on the show. Check out this dangerous attempt to play a game of "Super Ball!".

bob barker was a perfect host for TPIR. he was getting old and in his final year looked a little confused at times. besides he owns bob barker industries which sells to the prison system all over the country . the razor blades were the worst every one was walking around with toilet paper bits to stop the bleeding. i got the scars to prove it

bob barker was a perfect host of TPIR, but in the last year or so you could see him getting a little confused so he stepped down at the right time. plus he was in his 80s i think

Man, I've watched Price is Right my whole life - never seen this game. I imagine Skee-Ball handed them a cease and desist. http://www.skeeball.com/index.htm
