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

Goofs

If a contestant won the right to a bonus spin in a Showcase Showdown (spinning the large wheel), Bob Barker always warned the contestant that the wheel had to make at least one revolution during the bonus spin or "it doesn't count and you don't get to spin again." The fact that the contestant would not get another chance to spin means that the insufficient spin WOULD count. See more »

An Institution
9 September 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

After over thirty years on the air, this I think it is right to call this show an institution. The Price Is Right is one of the few shows on television that is loved by young and old alike and that can be attributed to Bob Barker and the production staff who have done everything over the years to keep it fresh and innovative as well as exciting for the viewers. This is truly one show that I am proud to say that I grew up with.
