Mark wins some trips on 'The Price Is Right'Mark should stock up on Dramamine and chewing gum: he's about to do a lot of flying. On Wednesday's 'Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Mark won trips to Portland, Oregon and Ireland, plus a home bar and draft beer cooler to take the edge after all that traveling. He also won $5,000, so maybe he can take a couple days off from work to sleep off the jetlag.

Mark's opponent in the Showcase Showdown, Edward, bid on a package of Gucci watches, Armani furniture, and a Jeep SUV. Edward bid $28,000 for his more stylish showcase. Mark bid $22,616 on his travel package.

Edward's showcase was valued at $32,399, putting him more than $4,000 under. Mark's package was worth $23,950, making him the winner.

Lisa wins two trips anda car on 'The Price Is Right'Lisa isn't going to get much time to use her new car. Monday on 'The Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), she won trips to Ft. Lauderdale and Canada in addition to the car in her Showcase Showdown, a package passed up by her opponent, Joseph.

Joseph, well aware that viewers might find him crazy for doing so, passed on the vacations and the car and wound up bidding on a game table, an iMac, and a trailer. He bid $33,995 on his package.

Lisa bid $27,000 for the vacations and the car, which turned out to be worth $30,106. That left her more than $3,000 under. But Joseph's showcase was actually worth $31,312, leaving him over by $2,683. Now she just needs sun tan lotion, a parka, and some motor oil.

Price is RightIt's a 'Drew Carey Show' reunion!

After a series of bizarre occurrences, Drew Carey found out who was behind the dastardly doings -- Mimi Bobeck. Yes, that's right America, Mimi is back. Kathy Kinney appeared in character on 'The Price is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to prank Carey on this glorious April 1. As the show's executive producer, Mimi instituted new policies, hired a new announcer and new models and declared she's watching Carey.

Now, when will Oswald and Ryan show up as contestants?

Price is Right contestant loses a Porsche in heartbreaking fashion

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 21st 2010 5:23PM
When you go on The Price is Right and make it all the way to the Showcase, you don't expect to be bidding on a Porsche Boxster. So, when Jeffery, a contestant on yesterday's episode, got a chance to make his bid, he went for it, giving an amazingly knowledgeable-sounding bid of $58,500.

As you can see in the clip below, the results didn't exactly go in his favor. But it's not like he lost the Porsche by wildly over- or under-bidding; he was right about the price. He just wasn't right enough:

Got Swine Flu? What to Watch

by Stephanie Earp, posted Nov 3rd 2009 1:01AM

My apologies to the pig farmers, but let's be honest: it's one thing to call this H1N1 when it's a distant threat, but when it gets personal, swine is the operative word.

I've got it. It's unpleasant to admit it - like copping to smoking - but there's the truth. I've been sick for over a week, and if you or someone you know has been sick that long, chances are it's the swine flu. Sorry to break it to you. I know you're probably trying to pretend it's just a cold. I did that for the first four days.

Sick for a week! I haven't been down like this since I was kid. And usually, when I'm down, I'm out. I sleep like the dead, emerging only for a few prime-time can't-miss shows. But this swine flu is a festering little bug - I'm confused, cranky and highly contagious but not knocked out enough to sleep the day away. Which brings me to my thesis: daytime TV.

Perfect Showcase bid was a "dark day" on The Price is Right, says Drew Carey

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 24th 2009 2:09PM
Drew Carey on Season 38 of The Price is RightWhen I came upon Drew Carey at CBS's TCA party over the summer, he was tapping away on his iPhone. He was sending a tweet to one of the responders on one of his two Twitter feeds, and was generally having a ball. So I figured he was in a good mood to talk about the show he's most known for these days, The Price Is Right.

It was a season of change for Drew and the show; the prizes got more creative, Drew changed his look, and the show in general did a lot to break out of the mold of the Bob Barker years.

Of course, those changes didn't go unnoticed, as some of the show's more "devoted" fans took to sites like Golden-Road.net to disparage Drew and say the show was going downhill. There was even a minor controversy this past season, as a contestant made a suspiciously on-the-mark Showcase bid, and Drew's reaction to it was less than enthusiastic (for good reason, as he mentions in the interview).

The Price is (still) Right for primetime

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 24th 2008 9:00AM
Drew Carey on The Price is RightWhile CBS pulled Bob Barker up from daytime into the prime time spotlight a few times the past few years, they've yet to do so since Drew Carey took over as host of The Price is Right this season. But that's all about to change. For six weeks, starting February 22, CBS is shifting Ghost Whisperer back an hour so they can squeeze in all new episodes of The Price is Right at 8pm/7pm Central. Possibly to avoid double-Drew confusion, The Power of 10, also hosted by Carey, has been pulled from the schedule effective immediately, though it will likely return in the summer.

We've talked a lot here at TV Squad about how Drew is doing on TPiR this year and, while the jury may still be out, I think he's settled into a nice groove. No, he's not Bob Barker but do we really want someone who would go up there and act just like Bob did? They kept all the crazy games that make the show a classic, so I say let Drew be himself, and we'll get used to it. And if you haven't given him a try, here's a chance to curl up at home on a Friday night and see for yourself.

Will Drew Carey swear on The Price is Right?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 1st 2007 2:59PM

Drew CareyThat headline isn't my opinion, it's something another TV critic is worried about.

Derrik Lang at SanLuisObispo.com points out that the very first word that Drew Carey uttered while taping the very first episode of his new CBS game show Power of Ten was "F**K. And then later in the show he made an a joke about a certain part of his anatomy (he later apologized for what he said, since there were kids in the audience). Lang now wonders if Carey could be the wrong choice for The Price is Right, since he works blue and seems more like a late-night host than a game show host and doesn't really get the TPiR fan base.

Price Is Right host search down to two?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 12th 2007 1:25PM

PlinkoIt looks like the long search for the new host of The Price Is Right is down to two: Sarah Silverman and David Hasselhoff.

Just kidding! The New York Post is reporting that producers have narrowed it down to two contestants: Mark Steines and Todd Newton. Steines is a host on Entertainment Tonight (he'll keep the job if he gets the PIR gig), and Newton has hosted several game shows, including a PIR show in Las Vegas. The pay for the job is reportedly near $3 million a year. Nice.

Hmmm...I'm not sure about this. But I guess they're both competent hosts. It looks like producers are going for the safer choices (male, slightly older, experienced) than going with someone like Mario Lopez or Ian Ziering.
