The programming peeps at CBS Daytime must subscribe to the same motto I do — if it don't make dollars, it don't make sense! Next week on The Price is Right, Let's Make a Deal and The Talk, loads of cash and high-dollar prizes will be handed out.
TPIR contestants will have the chance to win up to $500,000 playing the popular game "Plinko", the week of April 22-26. A whopping $250,000 will be at stake during play of "Punch A Bunch"; while the "Grande Game" will be worth $100,000. Additionally, one contestant will be able to play "3 Strikes" for a brand new Ferrari! READ MORE

Drew Carey on Bob Barker's Price Is Right 40th Anniversary Snub: "It Just Didn't Occur to Anybody to Invite Him"By Luke Kerr on September 07, 2012
Bob Barker has made his displeasure at not being invited to the 40th Anniversary of The Price is Right well known. However, The Price is Right’s current host Drew Carey denies the alleged snub was intentional. Carey told TMZ,
"It wasn't because of animosity or anything like that ... nobody has anything against him ... it just didn't occur to anybody to invite him personally to be on the show because it was a salute to contestants." READ MORE
It's hard to believe Bob Barker first began asking contestants to "come on down" on CBS Daytime's version of The Price is Right some 40 years ago today. While the original incarnation of TPIR began on NBC back in 1956 with Bill Cullen as the host, it was Barker's version that firmly cemented the game show's place in pop culture history.
Today at 11 am EST on CBS, current host Drew Carey will host a special 40th anniversary episode of TPIR, featuring some of the show's most memorable guests. Watch a teaser below! READ MORE
Don't look for TV icon Bob Barker to come on down for The Price Is Right's 40th anniversary special, hosted by Drew Carey on Sept. 4 According to this week's TV Guide, the 88-year-old animal rights activist is furious with the CBS game show for giving out a prize package including a trip to the Calgary Stampede. Said Barker to TV Guide's Michael Logan:
"I am ashamed of the show and surprised at their complete disregard for the welfare of animals," says the 88-year-old Barker. "Were I still there, [such a] prize would never have been considered. We never did anything that condoned animal cruelty. Apparently, things have changed."
We’ve seen The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful stars make appearances on The Price is Right and now fans of The Talk’s Julie Chen and Holly Robinson Peete can look forward to them popping up on the long-running game show too. According to EW.com, Chen and Peete will appear on the April 6 episode of The Price is Right, hosted by Drew Carey. Fans will then see Carey drop in on The Talk later that same day.
