Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Plinko: Holly wins $3000 (3 Plinko Chips)

One Away: Edward lost; Ford Taurus ($20,720)

Flip Flop: Amanda wins; Trip to Chicago ($2578)

Showcase Showdown #1: Edward wins with 75 cents

Buy or Sell: Halcyon wins; Daybed, Air Hockey Table, and Bar Set

Dice Game: Benjamin lost; Dodge Neon ($15,125)

Hit Me: Ashley lost; Dining Room Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Ashley wins with $1.00 ($1000)

Showcase: Edward wins; Living Room Group, TV, and Grand Piano

Goodbye Art Sanders, hello Roger Rose! Bob didn’t hesitate at all when saying Holly, since there was a certain “Holly” on the show for years and suddenly destroyed pretty much the sanctity of the modeling position of Price (Claudia put the final nail in the modeling coffin). Oh well, at least we don’t have all-new models every week and I don’t find anything wrong with seeing different faces modeling prizes and items. Those were some excellent sayings “ladies, do I have at least (insert number) number right”, Edward. Sounded like Bob pronounced Edward’s home state of Florida as “Flora Dee”. “Halcyon” is definitely going on my list of “Contestant Names of the Year”. Hopefully we’ll discover and interesting guy’s name on the show later in year 32 of Price. Benjamin + Dice Game + Las Vegas – Knowledge of Car Prices = Priceless! The dining room group prize on Hit Me was provided by the Ashley Company, yet the lovely Ashley lost. Hit Me losses usually anger the biggest of Price fans, but not the one typing right now. Remember folks, next Monday’s show is the 6000th Price. Making up for her Hit Me lost, the lovely Ashley wins $1000 on the Big Wheel and walks with grace to the score display. We end this week’s shows with a big “Daniel Batchell, come on down!” from Edward calling his brother to join in on his victory. Meanwhile, Ashley walks off the stage with a positive look on her face. Show #6000 next week, only 4000 more ‘til around the 2030s. Suggestion to Price, in case one of the current models in the rotation (likely Lanisha) wants to leave to show for her reasons, look for someone like Ashley for that position.

Yep, a regular person with everything I described about Ashley above would be right for Price. See y’all later!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Make Your Move: Danielle lost; Cooler, Serveware, and Trip to Scotland

Hole in One (or Two): Rebecca wins; Ford Explorer

Coming or Going: Adam wins by “Going”; Bed ($2883)

Showcase Showdown #1: Rebecca wins with 85 cents

Poker Game: James wins; Refrigerator, Guitar, Dining Table, and Stemware

Master Key: Christopher wins Vacuum; Sofa and Pontiac Sunfire

Freeze Frame: Wesley wins; Floor Clock ($3220)

Showcase Showdown #2: Christopher wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Christopher wins; Computer, Motor Scooters, and Trailer

For the first time since trying out for the announcer position, Art Sanders repeated a contestant’s name. Danny-Elle (or Danielle) applauded for herself each time after sliding a prize under the price she supposed in Make Your Move. Bob missed his inspiration putt, but that didn’t stop “Webby” from winning Hole in One (no “or Two” today, folks). If anyone from Price’s staff is reading this, don’t suggest to Bob to pronounce Rebecca “Webby”. Pronouncing Danielle “Danny-Elle” may work all the time, but “Webby” is likely to get old and tired out. “Weh-Becca” may work, what do y’all think? Poker Game returns to the set of Price! In the case of possible injury by Christopher’s wedding party, Bob had to get behind one of the Showcase podiums to continue his daily spade/neuter message.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Credit Card: Brianna wins ($121 left); Food Processor, Dishwasher, Fireplace, Banjo, and Bistro Group

Ten Chances: Sheik wins; Waffle Maker ($60), Rocker ($810), and Ford Mustang ($19,840)

Cliffhangers: David wins (20 steps); Trip to Washington, D.C

Showcase Showdown #1: Sheik wins with $1.00 ($1000)

Push Over: Keri lost; Electric Cart ($7595)

Most Expensive: Florence lost; Armoire, Sofa, and Dumbells

Showcase Showdown #2: Jeffrey wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Jeffrey wins; Bedroom Group, Luggage, and Trip to Singapore ($24,204)

Price is back in the Mobile/Pensacola region after it’s yearly day off on Mardi Gras Day. Nothing has changed at all after one day. Art Sanders is still announcing, the grinning Lanisha is still on the show, and the Showcase podiums remain the same. I have received word that yet someone else is up for the announcer position, who happens to be named Rich Fields. First Rich Burt (Burton Richardson) now Rich Fields (Richardson Fields?). The Sheik, or just plain old Sheik understood the rules of Ten Chances very well unlike many other contestants. I have yet to receive a reply from WKRG-TV 5 on why they didn’t air yesterday’s Price along with the CBS serials (soaps) during the late hours (12:00 PM-6:00 PM). One of these days TV5, one of these days!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Triple Play: Boyd lost; Dodge Neon, Caravan

Punch-A-Bunch: Rosemary wins $500

Barker’s Bargain Bar:Anthony lost; Range and Dining Table

Showcase Showdown #1: Boyd wins with 95 cents

Double Prices: Lloyd lost; Trip to Ottawa ($5357)

Any Number: Anitra wins $4.25; Chevy Cavalier and Dinnerware

Hi Lo: Larry lost; Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Lloyd wins with 85 cents

Showcase: Lloyd wins; Train Set, TV, Theater System, and Motorcycles ($24,823)

Due to WKRG-TV’s coverage of Mardi Gras Day in the Mobile region and not even having the nerve to tape-delay today’s Price for overnight hours, I forced myself to use Golden Road’s long summary of today’s show. They label shows they claim had no Pricing Game wins (there was a $500 win on the Punchboard) as “stinkers” and place “stupid bid” under contestant names who bid badly (I still prefer “bad bid”). Everything should be back to normal tomorrow morning, now if y’all excuse me I have an e-mail to write to WKRG on not including Price along with the CBS serials as part of “Tape Delay Overnight”.

Feb. 23rd 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Card Game: Camden lost; Ford Focus ($17,790)

Clock Game: Shirl wins Chair ($814)

Grand Game: Carey wins $1000

Showcase Showdown #1: Shirl wins with $1.00 ($1000)

Range Game: Frances lost; Entertainment Center with TV ($6618)

Cover Up: David lost; Pontiac Sunfire ($15,890)

Bonus Game: Christopher lost; Pontiac Vibe

Showcase Showdown #2: Christopher wins $11,000 ($2.00)

Showcase: Christopher wins; Golf Equipment, Trip to Monte Carlo, and Jeep Wrangler ($41,056)

The weekend is over and Art Sanders is still announcing, yet the grinning Lanisha is still wondering on the set. Our second items up for bids, a drum set was used for a little performance by Price employee “Head Grip” Jerry. My goodness Frances missed by only $2 in Range Game. Making up for her lost, Frances won $1,000 on the Big Wheel first, but Christopher managed to beat her in the Spin Off/Bonus Spin. Yep, the podiums are still as they were Friday. Don worry, you’ll get used to them, besides Bob’s hair was the only thing that really changed in the show’s 32 year run. WKRG-TV5’s constant shrinking of today’s show for weather reports doesn’t compare to what’s going to happen tomorrow as they station gets ready to cover all the events of Mardi Gras Day, which means no Price for the Mobile/Pensacola region. Thank goodness for those summaries…

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Lucky 7: Julia wins; Buick Century ($22,582)

It’s In The Bag: Bayard lost $1,000

2 For The Price of 1: Christina wins; Banjo ($918) and Daybed

Showcase Showdown #1: Bayard wins with 90 cents

Squeeze Play: Bobbie Jo lost; Jukebox ($8995)

Switcheroo: Emily wins Car Duster ($27); Ford Free Star

Showcase Showdown #2: Virginia wins with 90 cents + $1,000

Showcase: Bayard wins; Tennis Equipment, Golf Equipment, Camping Gear, Ford Mustang, Laptop Computer, trip to Nashville and Tahiti ($44,139)

Art Sanders has returned! Yet, he’s still kind of slow. Bob assured viewers through certain points of today’s show that we would get back on the winning track. An amazing second showdown we had today, with Bobbie Jo and Virginia both winning $1000 and competing in a spin off/bonus spin. Also returning to Price is the grinning Lanisha. Wonder how long will it take until they realize she’s no good at her position? Gasp! Another change besides the announcer and models, except this one will last longer. The Showcase podiums have been changed slightly. Now the price displays are above the name “Showcase”. We end today’s show with a double showcase winner, also known as Bayard. Amazing, a $100 difference!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Shopping Spree: Sherry lost; Baker’s Rack, Chair, Tea Set, and Chest

Punch A Bunch: Carol wins $500 (4 punches + Second Chance)

That’s Too Much: Cheryl wins; Chevy Impala ($21,595)

Showcase Showdown #1: Cheryl wins with $1.00 ($1000)

Switch?: Thomas wins with a “switch”; Desk and Dining Room Table

Let ‘Em Roll: Michael wins; Ford Focus

Most Expensive: Felicia wins; Trips to Seattle, New York,

Showcase Showdown #2: Michael wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Cheryl wins; Bedroom Group, Snowmobile, and Ski Equipment ($42,435)

Von voyage, Dannnnnnniel Rosen! From the second Cheryl got out of Contestant’s Row, Bob knew she could possibly cause bodily harm to him, which she came pretty close to during every one of her victory dances. Lt. Michael of the Navy bid $1.50, which sounded more like “a dollar fiddy”. From hiding behind That’s Too Much to the Big Wheel, even standing under the Showcase Showdown score, Bob escaped her dances without any harm. Michael rolled only one cube during his first roll and gave us a big “whoot” during Let ‘Em Roll. Another day, another perfect bid! After her Showcase win, Cheryl held on to model Candice for about 10 seconds while checking out her prizes.

Feb. 18th 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Temptation: Amy lost; Pontiac Vibe ($18,615)

Bonkers: Donald wins (15 seconds); Trip to Ireland

Check Out: Richard lost; Dinning Room Group

Showcase Showdown #1: Donald wins with 85 cents

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Emily lost; Armoire and Cradle

Money Game: Tillman wins $168; Dodge Neon ($16,125)

Secret X: Mary lost (“X” at bottom); Wide Screen TV

Showcase Showdown #2: Emily wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Donald wins; Artwork, Kitchen Set, and Trailer ($43,058 in prizes)

Another day with Dannnnnnnniel Rosen! We’ve had a lot of perfect bids lately, didn’t we? What do you get with a washer + dryer that both look alike, Dana of “Extra” modeling for the day, everyone but Bob thinking that they know which is which, and both Dana and semi-regular Rachel speaking, you get a “Priceless” moment. Oh yeah, a lot of Contestant Row overbids too. Unfortunately Dana had to go after dancing in traditional Irish clothing during the reveal of the trip to Ireland. Everyone in Contestants Row was just fascinated by model Rebecca’s bracelet. We end today’s show with what appears to be Donald shedding a tear after removing his glasses. By the way, Happy Gilmore aired un-cut during USA Network’s “PGA Tribute to Happy Gilmore”, yet certain words beginning with “s” were still censored.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Check Game: Stephen wins (check for $2601); Bed ($2783)

On the Spot: Raymone lost; Ford Focus

Eazy Az 1, 2, 3: Jessica wins; Stemware, Armoire, and Refrigerator

Showcase Showdown #1: Stephen wins with 80 cents

Side By Side: Janicka wins; Piano ($9186)

Grand Game: Richard wins $100

Dice Game: Sabrina wins; Chevy Cavalier ($16,216)

Showcase Showdown #2: Janicka wins with 75 cents

Showcase: Janicka wins; Cell Phones, Computer, and Ford F-150

Once again, another Check Game contestant that doesn’t know about the game. About 98% of the audience on that day knew about the game, according to Bob’s estimate. We’ve got ourselves a good look at Daniel Rosen as Steven came up on stage to play Check Game. The 89 years of age Christine told all her tale of getting to the show, which paid off very well. Now Janicka has something to play while singing the Gospel. The camera shy “Teddy the Dog” managed to show his face to all those watching.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right

Pick A Pair: Tamara wins; Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Kerri wins $6000 ($1.00 plus 15 cents)

Showcase: Kerri wins; Cruise to Mexico, Pinball Machine, Snowboards, and Boat ($45,940)

Another week and we still have Dannnnnnnnniel Rosen to deal with until the next candidate for the announcer position arrives and gets added to the poll for the viewers to help choose the new Price announcer. Those were very interesting reactions Kerri showed after her $1000 and $5000 wins during Showcase Showdown #2. Remember, the fate of whoever gets the announcer position of Price is only a few clicks away at
