1950s-1960s Version Gameplay

The weekly syndicated version debuted the week after the daytime show and continued to air until September 1980. It WAS distributed by Viacom Enterprises, which had just started as syndication arm of CBS. When Mark Goodson devised a revival of Price for the 1972 - 1973 Season, it WAS intended for nighttime broadcast under new rules for early - primetime syndication and Goodson named Dennis James to host the show. Goodson eventually got his wish to have James host taping day of the daytime show in December 1974 when Barker fell ill and WAS unable to participate in episode tapings. The two versions were largely similar at the beginning, as both were called New Price Is Right. Some games had rule differences because of larger budget and less commercial time on nighttime show; for example, for three playings in its first Season, Double Prices WAS played for two prizes instead of one. This version retains the 1972 half - hour format for its entire run and never adopts the daytime show's Double Showcase Rule, Showcase Showdown, or perfect Bid bonus. As of Season 2, word New WAS dropped from the show's name; thus it WAS title Price Is Right, often referred to on air as Nighttime Price Is Right. In most of the United States, stations carry syndicated Price as one of several weekly programs that air in One of Time - slots in hour before Prime Time, which was created by the 1971 FCC Prime Time Access Rule. Although Nighttime Price Is Right originally had higher ratings, by 1975, they started to drop. After the fifth Nighttime Season in 1977, when contract with NBC's own and operated stations end, James ' contract WAS not renew. Cbs own and operate stations then pick show up and decision WAS made to hire Barker, whose Truth or Consequences WAS tapped two years ago and had stopped production in 1975. The series tapped its 300 and final show on March 12 1980, and WAS cancelled after weekly syndicate game shows had fallen out of popularity in favor of daily offerings. With a run of eight seasons, it WAS one of the longest - running weekly syndicated game shows of the era and the longest - running regularly - schedule Prime - Time version of Price.
