    I understand that we’re in an era of networks cross-promoting other programming on their network or family of networks. But this is truly is a bit much, to the point of making the shows look extra shilly and foolish.

    Memo to CBS: People know that the Grammy Awards are coming up and air on CBS. If they’re interested, they’ll watch. If not, they won’t. If you want to advertise, do it during the commercial breaks.

    The one question that still bothers me over and over and over again is how long will The Price is Right EVER going to end? The show would’ve end since Bob Barker’s retirement after 35 years of hosting. Drew Carey still SUCKS and he continues to be everybody’s bad news. The models are still dumbfounded when they always waving their hands on camera while giving away prizes because it’s an obsession to them and Rachel Reynolds (Jessica Simpson’s look-alike) is still the busiest model on the show and I wouldn’t rule her out if she’s thinking about “retirement”. The contestants are still more DUMB & DUMBER these days when at some point when a player loses a prize during a pricing game or if someone goes OVER in the Showcase round or if someone drop a chip and lands on a zero like more than one time while playing PLINKO, that person will always end up as a LOSER.

    This Tran is why CBS still has The Price is Right on the air……. “THE PRICE IS RIGHT, daytime television’s most-watched program, hosted by Drew Carey, is up 14%, with an average of 4.87 million viewers (PRICE IS RIGHT 1); up 8% in women 25-54, with 1.3/08; and up 13% in women 18-49, with 0.9/06. PRICE IS RIGHT 2 is up 10% with an average of 5.68 million viewers; up 7% in women 25-54, with 1.5/09; and scoring 1.0/06 in women 18-49, even with a year ago.”

    Message to ag: I get what you meant. Ratings for The Price is Right would’ve sink because so fat this season, they had “guest models” on the show which includes soap stars, TV personalities and a SI swimsuit model in Chrissy Teigen. The regular models from its current era better be back soon even though Gwen, Amber, Manuela and Rob were on vacation days or perhaps they were going to appear in projects and stuff like that in light of their absence. Mike Richards the producer of both Price Is Right and Let’s Make a Deal is still a man who’s running out of ideas and doesn’t find a way to fix or rebuild the show in some other way. People still needs to give up watching The Price is Right because it’s BORING and it’s becoming like DEAL OR NO DEAL on steroids.

    Meant to type in the following: Ratings for The Price is Right would’ve sink so FAR not FAT this season. MY APOLOGIES
