After a week of reruns, we learn that Don Bishop is still announcing. His shouts of “come on down” may have improved, but his “Bobbbbbbbbbbbbbb Barker!” still gives me a good laugh! Nothing wrong with a good laugh, but would I laugh if he’s chosen as Rod’s successor? Plus, he still hesitates before describing a prize. As a TV set was brought out for today’s playing of Temptation by Georgia Bulldogs fan Carrie, Bob brings up a moment in Price history when a set actually fell to the floor. “Brothers got to hug”, quoting Brent before hugging Bob after winning his way up on stage. Michelle was in dangerous territory searching for the last two digits in the Ford Focus’ price before going for the first two digits. For reasons unknown, Carly’s last name was written down as “Lewis” instead of “Ellis”, which caused a 10-second delay for her to come on down. “Madam X” is what Bob referred to Carly as when it was time for bids. This Saturday’s 9th Million Dollar Spectacular (featuring the final appearance of Claudia Jordan, who we would later learn is not so lovely via a rather blunt interview) was promoted at last, along with CBS’ coverage of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, in Bob’s unique way of course. Showcase #2 featured the two famous Spade/Neuter stamps in the size of a large painting.

This weekend’s special could really live up to the name “Million Dollar Spectacular”! In case you don’t get what I’m getting at, just set the VCR for Saturday at 9/8 Central Standard Time. History could be made, if only “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire” didn’t make millionaires out of almost 10 folks (nothing against “Millionaire”, an excellent program with the right host)
