The Price Is More Exciting

Friday, 31 March 2006 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

The Price is Right has been a game show staple since the Hebrews were lead from Egypt by Bob Barker, who promised them all a game of Plinko.

TPIR has one of the most genuinely excited audiences and players one could ever see on game show TV. These people are thrilled at $64. These people are thrilled at his and her motorcycles. These people are just thrilled.

Recently, TPIR added an "oooh" and "aaah" track for when prizes are revealed. So the audience that used to clap politely for aspirin and grandfather clocks now has a repeated, fake astonishment at these things.

Was this really needed? Do I think that fibre supplement is EXCITING now that they’re playing pre-recorded wows?
