Pics of new Price Is Right set.

Recommended Posts

Glad to see they're keeping the same (if not, it's pretty close) wordmark and dollar sign. It's a nice way to link the Barker-era to the Carey-era. I'm also glad to see that the colors got a nice upgrade from the mostly pink & blue schematic that was established during the latter days of Barker's tenure.

Wow...they managed to make a throwback set look even more so. If you imagined what TPIR might have looked like if this incarnation aired in the early-to-mid 1960s, this is it.

This is a fantastic way to break stylistically with the Barker era but still be TPIR.

Drew is no Bob. I will not be watching. I don't care for the retro thing. Remember Price in primetime? The ones with the old "new" host, Mark, from KTLA Morning News???? That woulda been sweet. Aaaahhhhhhh, for not.

Funny, that's why I'm going to be watching.

Unless you're talking about Doug Davidson from Young and the Restless and the failed half-hour version from the mid-'90s, I have no earthly clue what you're talking about.

I was hoping they would update the set/props but still maintain that campy nostalgic feel to them. I think they did a terrific job of blending the past and the present. I wonder how far they went, did they make changes to the big wheel too?

I guess I'm with everyone else... it'll still feel like TPIR while acknowledging that it's a new era.

BTW, I vaguely remember another version from the mid-80's with someone other than Barker hosting. It was pretty much the same show, different host. Not that mid-90's poser version.

I can't believe they still hand paint all that stuff.

Its cool they do, but its very surprising. Most of that stuff these days would be direct printed on vinyl or something.

There was a brief nighttime version with Tom Kennedy hosting somewhere in the mid-'80s, I think.

Indeed, and Kennedy is the man.

I think the design is spot on. It's different, but classic. The different colors are a tie-in to the old set, which also had random colors about.

I'm excited about it. I love Drew Carey (though he does have a tendency to mumble through his bits).

As long as they don't mess with that sweet theme song, they could do TPIR from inside a crackhouse and I'd still watch it.

So would Ricky Williams. :D

Mark your calendars, folks. October 15th! I know I'll be watching before class.

I think it looks pretty good. It still feels like TPIR, but it seems new too. Also, what kind of microfone will they be using?

Wait until you tune in on Monday...you'll be somewhat surprised about the theme song.

I'll be at work when it airs, but I do plan on recording it, just for curiousity's sake. I know that Drew Carey is no Bob Barker, but I'm willing to give him a chance, and he just might do a good job. That's unlike what's happened to Family Feud, and although the current version will match the number of years as Richard Dawson's tenure as host (9 years) by year's end, it's been a total disaster. Three different hosts, numerous set and logo changes, and the contestants are even more annoying than ever. To me, I think the fact that Dawson's (and Ray Combs') Family Feud still airs everyday on GSN has hurt the current version, because some people expect to be the same exact show.

Well, Richard Karn was good at it, it was a shame they let him go.

I think John O Hurley was ok at first, and is now getting better.

Also on tpir set, good job, Family Fued's vurrent set is a great modernization as well (Even better than tpir, dare I say!)

If they use the version of the theme song that was on the preview on CBS's website, then it would be the current theme song with a disco beat to it. Also, Carey will the using the same style rod mike that Barker used in his final years on the show.

Theres a video posted on YouTube by CBS of the new season. I think the set looks awesome and I think Drew will be a great host. He still has the long mic, the only difference is that its wireless.
