The Greatest “The Price is Right” Bloopers!

Dec. 29th 2010

Brian Fairbanks over at Asylum has compiled “The Greatest ‘The Price Is Right’ Bloopers,” via a series of YouTube clips!

“The Price Is Right” has been around since 1965, and it has given away more than its share of ugly entertainment centers, useless blenders and laughably tacky two-door hatchback cars.

But really, who’s watching the world’s longest-running subliminal advertisement for its products? The guessing game of “The Price Is Right” has always taken a back seat to contestants wearing bizarre outfits, jumping on Bob Barker and taking him down and going berserk when they win, say, $500.

Where is Rich Fields?

Dec. 28th 2010

A question the blog has been asked numerous times.

I’ll let a press release from the man himself earlier this season tell the story.

I am now able to confirm to you that I will not be returning to The Price is Right for season 39.

I have been given the “OK” from the show’s executive producer Mike Richards and Fremantle executive Jen Mullen to inform you as to their plans for my now vacated position.

Mike and Jen have told me that they will be holding on-air auditions to fill the announcer position with… an improv comic. Yep, you heard right.

Mike explained to me that he loves having the “house bands” and “live performers” all the time on TPIR and that he hopes to make it more of a “variety show within a game show”. He believes that having a comedian at the announcer’s position from now on will enhance this new change in direction.

I wish them the best of luck with season 39 and beyond. I really do. I don’t want Drew’s new “love” to go sour for any reason. Hosting that show brings Drew (and many other people) a lot of joy.

Let me also cut down on internet speculation by saying that Drew Carey had nothing to do with this “change in direction”. Drew has been my biggest champion. He and I will remain friends forever regardless of what happens to The Price is Right.

Rich has been seen on some Los Angeles CBS affiliates occasionally as a fill-in meteorologist, but his new gig is announcing Wheel of Fortune, where he has taken over for the late Charlie O’Donnell.

You can check him out on Facebook for up-to-the-minute updates!
