Depending on where you live, you’ll be getting a healthy helping of The Price is Right on television today. CBS is running up to three episodes in place of their normal soap lineup, until the NFL game comes on later this evening.
If you’re in the Eastern time zone, the three shows (reruns from earlier this season) play back to back starting at 12:30pm. In the Central and Mountain time zones, you’ll get one episode, followed by your midday news, then the two remaining shows.
Unfortunately for game show fans in the Pacific time zone, ‘Price’ doesn’t play at all today because of the timing of the kickoff of the game. I’d recommend an extra slice of pumpkin pie to ease your suffering.
This may be the first real look many people across the country have gotten at Carey’s hosting style since taking over the role from Bob Barker on October 15th.
Pay close attention to the pocket flaps on his suit coats. For some reason, Carey seems obsessed with rubbing them (as shown in the photo). It looks like a nervous habit, which is a nice argument for a corded microphone (so you can hold the cable in your other hand) like the one Barker used for the last 35 years.
