Former good article The Price Is Right (U.S. game show) was one of the Social sciences and society good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.


Featured on Martial Law[edit]

Nowhere is it mentioned in the article that "The Price Is Right" was featured in the show "Martial Law". Detective Law was waitng in line for the show when a woman fainted. He revived her by using reflexology (meassaging her feet. He was then called down to contestants' row and subseqently went on to win the showcase. He claimed to be a long time fan of "The Price Is Right"

Rotating Announcers[edit]

We're a little more than a week away from the start of the show's milestone 40th season on CBS and since George Gray is now the announcer, I think it would be wise to delete the facts about the other rotating announcers from last year. What do you say?--E2e3v6 (talk) 21:15, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

  • No. The information is sourced and relevant. There's no reason to remove valid, sourced information presented in a neutral fashion unless it's indiscriminate, which I don't think it is. Ten Pound Hammer, his otters and a clue-bat • (Otters want attention) 21:48, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

The Price Is Right (U.S. game show)The Price Is Right (1972 U.S. game show) – The current title must redirect to the franchise, The Price Is Right. George Ho (talk) 07:02, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Support. The current version of The Price Is Right is much better known than the original, but an ambiguous term like this should redirect to the franchise, especially since there have been spinoffs of the 1972 version not covered in detail at the current target. 168.12.253.66 (talk) 16:49, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. This verison is most-identifiable as the "U.S. game show" and it is unlikely a searcher will be seeking the 1956 or 1994 version (or any other international version) when searching for "The Price Is Right (U.S. game show)". It is not explicitly necessary to disambiguate this article as the "1972" version. AldezD (talk) 17:43, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Strong Oppose Sorry George, but I see what you are trying to do here, but that title is way too problematic. The show has been on for 40 years and regulating a single year to the article title doesn't portray the correct history of the show. If you have an alternate title please try that instead. JOJ Hutton 19:27, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose: According to the article, the show started in 1972, but has spanned many subsequent years, and continues in current production. The current article status may need some kind of cleanup, but this title change doesn't seem to accomplish what is necessary. --BarrelProof (talk) 05:49, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Episode from 1 April 2014 and article infobox[edit]

Please do not re-add Craig Ferguson to the infobox. A pesron hosting the program for a one-episode stunt should not be listed, just as individuals who were temporary/substitute announcers or were auditioning for the role are not listed. AldezD (talk) 20:43, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
