Default How The Price is Right became TV's ultimate comfort food

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...ime-game-show/

“It’s the comfort food of television. It’s mashed potatoes,” says Adam Sandler, the game show's director, who isn't the Adam Sandler who famously fought former Price is Right host Bob Barker in the movie Happy Gilmore. “No matter your walk of life, you know the price of things," says Sandler. Karen Heller, who went behind the scenes of The Price is Right for The Washington Post, explains: "If Jeopardy! projects a studious mien, drawing contestants who aced standardized tests and dress for court appearances, The Price Is Right is its opposite. Contestants are extroverts, denizens of community theater, folks who appear lit while sober. They’re attired in Price Casual — bedazzled T-shirts, jeans, sneakers. Every show is a late-summer barbecue. These people come to play."

Only the Bob Barker version is worth watching.

^I can't speak for him, but I have no problems with Drew Carey hosting. There's still several pricing games in the rotation that I like, and I also like the ladies who model the prizes (past and present) as well.

The Only Problem about the Drew Carey version is Mike Richards being the executive producer & George Gray being the announcer
