Showcase: Araceli wins; Pool Table, Two Motor Scooters, and a 4 Door Ford Focus ($43,274 in prizes)

Rich Fields is out and Don Bishop is in! Know what we viewers get, many days of suffering under those Paul Boland-like tones of his. Thank goodness for the power of laughter that helped me get through the pain that was Don’s announcing. Expect his votes in the CBS.com announcer poll to be very low. Brian of Virginia wore a “Bob Barker/Happy Gilmore for President” shirt for today’s show. Kimberly thought she doesn’t do well when being timed, but she successfully proved herself wrong. Bob literally turned James around to show the entire audience his shirt proving he’s from Memphis, Tennessee (or MempJames, since his nametag was blocking the “his”). We’ve had another fan of the Dice Game and that would be its latest winner under the interesting name Araceli. This ought to make some Alabama Crimson Tide fans feel uneasy, Anna happens to be a Georgia Bulldogs fan. We end today’s show with resident beautify Araceli as today’s Showcase winner with a difference bellow $1000. See y’all next week!

Your comments make us feel good, so place one under “comments”!

(UPDATE: Rich Fields is in and all other announcers are out)

Jul. 28th 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6002) (Original Air Date 3-11-2004)

Coming or Going: Richard wins with “Going”; Trip to Austria ($6208)

It’s In The Bag: Eric wins $2000

Line ‘Em Up: Christina wins; Pontiac Grand AM ($19,260)

Showcase Showdown #1: Christina wins with 95 cents

Double Prices: Nicole wins; Barrel Sauna ($5245)

Bonus Game: Angela wins; Living Room Group

That’s Too Much: Craig lost; Ford Taurus ($21,355)

Showcase Showdown #2: Angela wins with 55 cents

Showcase: Nicole wins; Bedroom Group, TV, and trip to Malaysia ($26,476 in prizes)

Nicole representing a group of school-teachers shows off her skills of being hyperactive on her way to Contestant’s Row. Craig had something else on mind other than two items up for bids and that would be Teri. I’m sure it was the full head of hair that got him. Richardson Fields pronounced Emile’s name “Emily”, almost creating a big situation in the hands of Price. Looks like Ruklanthi and Walburga finally have male competition for “Contestant Name of the Year”. Craig escaped Contestant’s Row without distraction, but ends up seeing Teri once again, this time in the driver seat of a Ford Taurus. I wonder if the excellence of Teri’s hair played a part in Craig lost in That’s Too Much (preventing a perfect show)? No, I wouldn’t blame a model for a contestant’s lost, but in Craig’s case. And now, a small performance starring Angela and Craig as the Showcase Showdown presents “The Pot Hole Fix”. That was one worthy of the title “Priceless Moment”.

Jul. 27th 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (Original Air Date 2-11-2004)

Swap Meet: Danielle lost (Swap Item Sewing Machine; Gumball Machine, Clock, and Popcorn Machine

Pathfinder: Matthew lost; Chevrolet Impala ($26,140)

Magic #: Michael wins; Daybed and Desk

Showcase Showdown #1: Danielle wins with 85 cents

Flip Flop: Elaine wins; Entertainment Center ($7248)

Grocery Game: Erika lost; Trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico

Dice Game: Melinda lost; Ford Taurus ($21,135)

Showcase Showdown #2: Elaine wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Double Overbid

Danielle wore a shirt which she says also belonged to her mother showed her status of being unemployed. $37 or $31 difference in Magic #, Bob will figure that one out later. Michael was the only one of the first three that made it on stage not to have a relative on the show long ago. Elaine (Iverson) and Elaine the contestant escort (second one as of recent) of the Rambling Rows Organization brought a plaque honoring Bob. “Danny-Elle” and “Er-Rika” Bob’s pronunciations of Danielle and Erika, well mostly for the former.

(Up to this very day, I still believe “Danny-Elle” is the proper pronunciation of Danielle. No offence to those under the name, but I just seem to prefer said pronunciation.)

Jul. 26th 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (Original Air Date 2-9-2004)

Any Number: Nicole wins Chest ($349); Chevy Cavalier ($16,180)

Grand Game: Christina wins $1,000

Most Expensive: Roosevelt wins; Bar Set (most expensive)

Showcase Showdown #1: Roosevelt wins with 95 cents

Push Over: Paula wins; Trip to Alaska ($4327)

One Away: Marlene wins; Ford Mustang ($19,478)

Joker: Jessica lost (Card #2 was Joker); Bed

Showcase Showdown #2: Paula wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Roosevelt wins; Living Room Group, Floor Clock, and Electric Cart

We began this week with Art’s second show as announcer. He may have improved his “come on downs”, but he’s still kind of slow before and during prize descriptions, such as the TPIR Tugboat bringing out the next prize and saying that it was still coming out. Joker, a game rarely played was not won! We have witnessed a “contestant escort” today! A first, according to Bob.

Jul. 23rd 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (Original Air Date 12-2-2004)

Safe Crackers: Andrew wins ($450 for Cellphone); Chevy Calvalier

Hole in One: Cheri lost; Ford Mustang

One Wrong Price: Nicholas lost; Desk, Artwork (wrong price), and Sofa

Showcase Showdown #1: Cheri wins with 90 cents

Coming or Going: Georgette lost; Brass Bed ($5754)

Pathfinder: Ruklanthi lost; Ford Windstar ($23,697)

Switch?: Jacob wins with a “switch”; Dining Group and Clock

Showcase Showdown #2: Jacob wins with $1.00 ($1,000)

Showcase: Jacob wins ($25,471); Ski Equipment, Snowmobile, Snow Blower, Trip to Canada

I wonder who Andrew was bowing to before Safe Crackers, Bob or Claudia? More proof that Bob’s missing putts inspires losses such as today’s loss. Bob cracks under the stress of pronouncing Ruklanthi’s (Ruk for short) name. First “9-uh-oh-3-6″, now Rich Burton is pulling a “9-oh-oh-3-6″ bit. What’s next, “9-uh-uh-3-6″? Unlikely, I guess, but remember this is the same guy that said “Bobbbbbbbbb Birkkkkkkerrrrrr”.

(Yep folks, this is the show with Ruklanthi)

Jul. 22nd 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (Original Air Date 2-10-2004)

Money Game: Maryanne wins $156; Pontiac Sunfire

Plinko: Adrianna wins $1000 (with 5 Plinko chips)

Barker’s Markers: Anthony lost; Motorcycle, Sofa, and Riding Lawn Mower

Showcase Showdown #1: Adrianna wins with 75 cents

Bullseye: Patricia wins; Dining Room Group

That’s Too Much: Jamie lost; Pontiac Vibe

Double Prices: Tammi wins: Floor Clock ($3435)

Showcase Showdown #2: Tammi wins with 65 cents

Showcase: Tammi wins; Computer, Kitchen Group, and Truck

Another day with Art Sanders as announcer! Representing the great state of Alabama (my state), Maryanne! Adrianna only watched the show occasionally, so that must explain getting her one of her Plinko chips stuck 3 times in a row. “1999, a good year” quoting Bob after mentioning one of the prices in Barker’s Markers. Thanks to a choice of two boxes of Tylenol, Patricia hit the bullseye on the first try. No “keep goings” or “higher”, but “yeah” when Jamie kept going moving on in That’s Too Much. The floor clock in Double Prices was revealed by the Giant Price Tag. We end today’s show with the music courtesy of the good folks at The Price is Right Fashion Show (Showcase #2)

(Constant Commercials + Few Winner Outcomes = Dan Rather Breaks In! Thank goodness I’m here to serve Price viewers around the world, even during rerun time)

Jul. 21st 2004

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6056) (Original Air Date 6-17-2004)

Triple Play: Martin wins; Dodge Neon ($16,035) Dodge Dakota ($20,035) Ford Mustang Convertible ($24,725)

Clock Game: Emily wins (7 seconds left); Bestrew Table ($799) and Washer/Dryer ($918) (+$1000)

Bullseye: Eliana lost; Living Room Group

Showcase Showdown #1: Eliana wins with 85 cents

Most Expensive: Mahali wins; Refrigerator, Pool Table (Most Expensive), and Baker’s Rack

Secret X: Crystal lost; Trip to China

Dice Game: Horace lost; Ford Taurus ($21,355)

Showcase Showdown #2: Horace wins with 75 cents

Showcase: Horace wins; Bedroom Group, Portable DVD Player, and Spa ($18,635 in prizes)

After Bob’s attempt to make Martin a really big winner “Tony the Tiger” style, we find out Triple Play is soon to be played. The audience is to thank for Martin even reaching the Dodge Dakota, so he relied mostly on them for the rest of the game. Emily, who’s first words to Bob on stage were “I love you!” who’s lucky number happens to be 11 (also the amount of time spent on winning the table), proves her Price knowledge includes the legendary Clock Game. After her Clock Game victory, we find Emily celebrating with Roger & Company a couple of seconds away. If only Eliana didn’t go way off target with the first item (10 boxes of pasta = $25.90), she would have conquered the eye of the bull. Horace’s first bid in Contestant’s Row was neither $2500, $3500, or even $5500, but $4500 on a motorcycle. Mahali performed a Most Expensive victory dance of some sorts for us. April, a “First Four” contestant, unfortunately pull the ultimate comeback of today’s show. At first, it appeared to be an unlucky day for Horace, then the Big Wheel rolled in for him. Our two comeback contestants (thanks to the Big Wheel) witnessed the return of the eliminator of unwanted gifts, the Prizenator (starring Rachel) in Showcase #1, which was later passed to Eliana. It was tough, but Horace managed to pull through at the end, even though his first bid in Contestant’s Row was almost outrageously high. Sorry folks, no Rich on stage since this show was taped before he got himself more time on camera.

(Another more recent show to rerun)

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6055) (Original Air Date 6-8-2004)

Switch?: Brittany wins with a “Switch”; Armoire and Dining Room Table

Punch A Bunch: Amy wins $10,000 with 4 Punches

Card Game: James wins; Pontiac Sunfire ($16,185)

Showcase Showdown #1: Brittany wins with 95 cents

Race Game: Suzette lost; Daybed, Banjo, Dishware, and Motor Scooter

Pass the Buck: Scott wins with 3 Chances; Chevy Cavalier and $1000

Pushover: Elliot lost; Entertainment Center and TV ($7248)

Showcase Showdown #2: Suzette wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Brittany wins; Kayak, Trip to St. Thomas, and Ford Explorer ($42,605 in prizes)

I wonder what that audience was chanting as Bob welcomed all to today’s show? Sounded like, “Bob, Bob, Bob!” Unbelievable! Brittany, a former high school student from Colorado, a life long resident of North America, has never seen Price in all her 18 years of life. Bob joked telling her to leave to stage (with audience applause) and she took it very well. Folks, we have an all new loyal friend & true in our debt after winning “Switch?” Before our next item up for bids was revealed, Bob assured us that Amy has viewed the show previously. Amy’s long bout with the Punchboard ended with not $100, $50, or $100 again, but a slip worth $10,000! Rich had no need to fear the audience’s separate opinions (low voices said “yeah!” and high voices said “no!”) on what gender should be called to come on down next. Christina was the lucky lady to make the run to Contestant’s Row after that situation. Lets see, Spade/Neuter stamp pictures featured with a pool table, oh yeah it’s time for Gizmo the Dog to be introduced. Looks like an member of the audience wants to adopt Gizmo already, but first she must get to the SPCA LA shelter quick. James represents the Omaha (Nebraska) Police Department while playing today’s Card Game. Brittany continues to amaze loyal Price viewers as she spins the Big Wheel for 95 cents. If only Suzette had done the opposite of Brittany’s playing of “Switch?” with those 2 prizes, she would have won all 4 Race Game prizes. Scott escapes Contestant’s Row at last for a little passing of the buck! Yet another “First Four” contestant finally escapes and that would Elliot. Too bad he continued to push when he had the correct price of $7248. Brittany didn’t need the viewing experience of Price to successfully complete her journey from Colorado to today’s Showcase and back with a total of $42,605 in prizes.

(Brittany is inspiration to all that have never seen Price!)

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#5999) (Original Air Date 3-8-2004)

Cover Up: Ellen wins; Dodge Neon ($16,325)

One Wrong Price; Valerie wins; Popcorn Machine, Clock, and Cradle

Plinko: Matthew wins $3000 (4 Plinko Chips)

Showcase Showdown #1: Valerie wins with 80 cents

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Jeffrey lost; Drum Set and Table

Card Game: Katherine lost; Ford Focus ($15,575)

Now or Then: Janice wins; Trailer (“Then” March 1997)

Showcase Showdown #2: Janice wins with 85 cents

Showcase: Janice wins; Dining Room Group, Jukebox, and Dance Lessons ($24,668 in prizes)

(Burton) Richardson “Rich” Fields continues to show off his announcing skills. Bob brings up an “Items Up for Bids” with a surfboard from many moons ago involving this lady bidding $9000. Luckily, nobody bid that before Bob told us this tale. It was a real struggle getting from “1” to “2” during Ellen’s playing of Cover Up. Looks like the folks at the dormitories are the only ones that are happy that Jeffrey didn’t win the drum set. Introducing, Troy the Dog (Ellen and Troy, that would be an interesting combination)! Even with Bob suggesting that Katherine shouldn’t worry about the mathematics, she still added $1000 to her bid for a Ford Focus after picking the all-important ace. We went from 5 cents to a tie of 95 cents in Showcase Showdown #2. It’s “Monday Morning” on CBS and here again is Little Teri (in skirt and has more hair) showing off the art of today’s first Showcase prizes (Trip to Ireland, Motorcycle, and Boat). I wonder what Charles Osgood’s take on the artwork would be?
