CBS Daytime: “The Price is Right” and “Let’s Make A Deal” Updates for 2012
Yesterday CBS Daytime held a panel for the Television Critics Association where the stars of their various shows greeted critics and discussed what will be coming up this Fall season. Both Let’s Make A Deal and The Price is Right were represented by hosts Wayne Brady and Drew Carey. Pictures and videos of the cast discussing the upcoming seasons were released. Here’s a quick word on what to expect this September from each.
*The Price is Right has a few minor cosmetic changes coming for its 41st season. The iconic doors will be slightly revamped. The colored-square pattern on each will be touched up with silver borders to resemble the turntable area to the side of the set. The logos on the door are now also 3D, sticking off the wall, and able to light up. Looks really cool. The larger silver dollar signs between each door, celebrating the previous 40th season, stick around for the new shows. The only other note is that Price will continue using male models in a larger capacity for the 41st season. Daniel Goddard, who currently stars on CBS’s The Young and the Restless, took that role last season and appears to be back for much more this year. About time the show reached the 21st century. I really can’t see how anyone can have a complaint about male models. It’s a pretty insignificant matter. Here’s some pictures and a video of Drew announcing some of the news.
*Let’s Make A Deal enters its 4th season this Fall. The show is still taping and you can get tickets to be in the audience and play by clicking here. Wayne Brady was on-hand at the CBS Daytime meeting yesterday to announce one exciting feature. Coming this October, Publisher’s Clearing House will team with Deal for a special $20,000 a day giveaway. $100,000 will be up for grabs. The Price is Right did this last season with a Plinko week jackpot. It was one of the more exciting and entertaining things they’ve done in a while so I look forward to seeing what Deal does with this.
