The Joke’s on Drew Carey and George Gray When They

Switch Jobs with the Models On “The Price Is Right”


“Let’s Make a Deal” Celebrates April Fool’s Day For

The First Time Ever With a “Zonk Redemption Show”


CBS Daytime celebrates April Fool’s Day on April 1 with special themed episodes of THE PRICE IS RIGHT and, for the first time, LET’S MAKE A DEAL.

The joke’s on Drew Carey and George Gray this April Fool’s Day on daytime television’s most-watched program when THE PRICE IS RIGHT models flip the script on the unsuspecting host and announcer, Monday, April 1 (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT).  For the first time ever, Drew and George will learn firsthand how challenging modeling can be when they’re forced to make rapid costume changes and present such prizes as a trampoline, a hot tub, jet skis and, of course, a new car.  Meanwhile, the models – Manuela, Amber, Gwendolyn and Rob – will be the ones to tell the contestants to “come on down,” welcome them to Contestants Row, guide them through the pricing games and introduce the fabulous prizes.

LET’S MAKE A DEAL celebrates April Fool’s Day for the first time with the first-ever “Zonk Redemption Show” on April 1 (check local listings on the CBS Television Network).  The audience will be filled with previously Zonked Traders from the last four seasons who get a second chance to compete for cash and prizes.  Also, host Wayne Brady will play an April Fool’s Day joke on the entire audience of Traders when he challenges them to a special deal with a group prize, if they choose correctly.

CBS Daytime has been #1 in the daypart for 26 consecutive years, featuring a lineup that is a balance of dramas, game shows and talk. The network’s daytime lineup includes television’s #1 daytime program and longest-running game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the #1 daytime drama THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, as well as THE TALK, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL and LET’S MAKE A DEAL.

    LMAD is way better than TPIR. The Price is Right needs to get canceled in the near future because Drew Carey, the models and George Gray are acting like zombies from THE WALKING DEAD. These guys needs to be on their best behavior or else…

    Hope Kathy Kinney aka Mimi makes an appearance on the April Fools Day episode of The Price is Right. She was a no-show last time but if they don’t bring her back, I’m going to sue The Price is Right and the entire crew. Even better, wonder if Rob Wilson can take over Drew’s job as host.
