The Price is Right Cast


Series Description
    


The Price is Right is a TV game show that began on NBC in 1956. In 1963 it moved to ABC. In 1972 it finally hit the third network. CBS continued with 30 minute episodes until 1975 when some episodes were expanded to 60 minutes. In the beginning there were four contestants but later anywhere from six to nine (depending on the episode's run time) bid on what they believe is the retail price of merchandise with the winner moving on to the next competition. Eventually the game comes down to two contestants who compete against each other in the "Showcase Showdown" and the person who comes closest to the retail price without going over wins their grand prize!

The Price is Right really changed the TV game show. Earlier, most of them had used the question and answer format. The more questions the contestants could answer, the bigger their winnings became. The Price is Right took game shows in the direction of a fun-loving environment with lots of joking, roulette wheels and excitement without stress.

If the winner of the final showcase comes within $250 of the retail price of their showcase, they win both showcases. In previous years they had to be within $100 to win both.
