“Come on down! You’re the next contestant on The Price is Right!”
This famous line is one that is familiar to many people who watch daytime TV, as the game show The Price is Right has been a staple inside American homes for 45 years. From stay-at-home parents to kids that missed school because they were “sick”, The Price is Right has entertained many and is even the television equivalent of a “comfort food” to some.
In this day and age, you don’t have to pretend to be sick to enjoy The Price is Right, as you can now watch the program anytime online, and today we are going to tell you how!
About The Price is Right
Started in 1972 by original, and longest-running, host Bob Barker, The Price is Right is a game show that requires contestants to guess the prices of various products, usually provided to the program by sponsors. Contestants perform this price-guessing task in a number of ways, from placing bids in “contestants row”, to playing pricing games such as the famous “Yodeler”, and “Plinko”.
The game comes to an end at the “Showcase”, where two of the contestants (chosen by spinning the big wheel in the “Showcase Showdown”) try to get the closest to the price of a select group of prizes. These prizes usually include furniture, trips, and most popular “a brand new car!”
The Price is Right airs weekdays on CBS at 11 AM EST (but varies by location).
