Price is Right -Viewers of “The Price is Right” gets a star studded line up this week on daytime TV as it’s the celebrity charity week. The famous faces are big stars from CBS! Taking the stage with enthusiasm and excitement, the celebrities help fans try to win as much cash as possible and play for charities that they support. Of course, there are trips, cars and appliances up for grabs too.

The “The Price is Right” kicked off on September 4, 1972. Handing out prizes like candy every weekday, this game show series hasn’t had a problem attracting people to play. People at home love it too. Viewers tune in to see what is being given away and challenging themselves on the actual retail price too. The game show segments dare people at home to get involved and yell at the TV to help the people guessing the prices (of course, only the neighbors can hear the yelling.) Add the famous faces with this special week and this is a perfect daytime game show to watch.

I personally know over a dozen people who DVR the show (while they are at work) and watch it in the evening. Fans of this show rarely miss an episode, even if they have a full schedule.

Filming in Los Angeles at the CBS Studios, and it’s a unique experience everyone should check out.

Drew Carey is at the helm creating a unique opportunity for fans each and every show. He hosts the show while the cameras are rolling, and during the breaks, he talks to the audience. The audience is part of the magic of television, even if only for a short time.
