    This article is about the franchise. For the American version airing since 1972, see The Price Is Right (American game show). For other uses, see The Price Is Right (disambiguation).

    is a television game show franchise created by Bob Stewart, originally produced by Mark Goodson and Bill Todman, and currently produced and owned by Fremantle. The franchise centers on television game shows, but also includes merchandise such as video games, printed media, and board games. The franchise began in 1956 as a television game show hosted by Bill Cullen and was revamped in 1972. This version was originally hosted by Bob Barker. Since 2007, Drew Carey has hosted the program.

    In the show, contestants compete to win cash and prizes by guessing the price of merchandise. The program has been critically successful and remains a stalwart in the television ratings.[1] It also managed to break away from the quiz show format that has been used in other game shows.[2] Since the current version premiered, it has also been adapted in several international formats around the world, most notably in the United Kingdom, Australia, Mexico, and Vietnam.

    In 2013, ranked it No. 5 in its list of the 60 greatest game shows ever.[3]

    The original version of was first broadcast on NBC, and later ABC, from 1956 to 1965. Hosted by Bill Cullen, it involved four contestants bidding on a wide array of merchandise prizes with retail prices ranging from a few dollars (in many cases, "bonus" prizes were given to the winner afterward) to thousands. Though conducted in an auction style, Cullen did not play the role of auctioneer. Instead, contestants would try to bid as close to a product's actual retail price without exceeding that price. Depending on the prize, contestants were either allowed, in proper turn, to make multiple bids, or restricted to only one bid. In the case of the former, each contestant would bid on an item until a buzzer sounded. The contestant could make a final bid, or "freeze." The contestant whose bid was closest to, but not more than, the correct value of the prize won it. There was also a special game set aside for the home viewer that offered several prizes in a package, which usually included a luxury vacation trip and/or a new car. Viewers submitted their bids via postcards, and the winner was announced on the air. At the end of each episode, the contestant who had won the most (by dollar value) was declared the winner and became the returning champion, entitled to play again on the next episode.

    This version began as part of NBC's daytime schedule. A series of technical problems allegedly made the pilot episode look bad enough for NBC to decline to purchase the show, but after an appeal from the producers, citing the fact that all TV shows at the time were given at least 13 weeks to succeed or fail, it aired on the network. It became successful enough to warrant a second version of the series, beginning on prime time in the fall of 1957. Shown weekly, that version became the first TV game show to be broadcast in color.[4] After being a top-10 primetime show for some time, the show's ratings gradually but noticeably declined, and by 1963 NBC had canceled it. The show was then picked up by ABC and ran in prime time on that network for one full season (1963–64); the daytime version ended in 1965.

    Since 1972, the current version of has used the same structure:

    One Bid, in which four players in Contestants' Row bid on a prize, attempting to give the prize's suggested retail price without exceeding it. The price is revealed and the player with the winning bid goes on stage to play a pricing game. The first four players on Contestants' Row are called from the studio audience at the start of the show, and after each pricing game, a new player is called to fill the vacant slot.

    Pricing games, in which the contestant plays for a range of prizes, frequently money or automobiles, with most games based on the player's knowledge of the retail price of the prizes or other consumer goods like food and household products.

    The Showcase, in which the two top players of the day are shown two showcases, which are collections of prizes. After the first showcase is revealed, the top player is awarded the option of bidding on the first showcase or passing it to the other player. The second showcase is then revealed and bid upon by the player who did not bid upon the first. The player who bids closer to, but does not exceed, the total retail price of their showcase wins it. If the difference between a contestant's bid and the showcase's value is within a certain range, the player wins both showcases; this range has varied over time. If both players overbid, neither wins.

    When the new format debuted as , shows were 30 minutes in length; three pricing games were played and the two contestants with the highest winnings entered the Showcase. By June 1973, the show was renamed back to .

    Drew Carey is a stand-up comic turned actor and producer who had the distinction of having two hit shows simultaneously: the long-running comedy The Drew Carey Show, which ran from 1995-2004, and the improv/sketch show Whose Line Is It Anyway? on which he was host and a producer. The success of that show led to the creation of Drew Carey’s Improv All-Stars, an improv troupe that performs in showrooms across the country.

    In July 2007, Carey was named the host of The Price Is Right, succeeding longtime host Bob Barker. In August 2007, he began also hosting the Network’s Power Of 10, a high-stakes, primetime game show where contestants compete for the chance to win $10 million.

    In May 2000, Carey starred in his first television movie as the title character in “Geppetto” for the Wonderful World of Disney. Carey sang and danced in the new telling of the classic Pinocchio tale. Carey’s debut book, Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined, is a look at life from Drew’s unique and comical perspective.

    Carey returned to his stand-up comedy roots in July 1997 when he hosted HBO’s Mr. Vegas’ All-Night Party, where he performed musical numbers and comedy sketches.

    While in the Marine Reserves, his military buzz cut and black wide-rim glasses became part of his trademark look. He began his successful career as a comedian in April of 1986 at the Cleveland Comedy Club. One of his first big breaks was competing on Star Search ’88.

    In 1991, Carey landed a spot on HBO’s 14th Annual Young Comedians Special and appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Carey landed his own television development deal at Disney, which led to an opportunity for Carey to co-star in the series The Good Life. Carey also had the opportunity to work with Bruce Helford, who was a consulting writer on the series and hired Carey as a staff writer for The Gaby Hoffman Show. Their experience led the two of them to decide to co-create a series for Carey. Carey went on to star in his own comedy special for Showtime, Drew Carey: Human Cartoon and performed in Showtime’s Tenth Anniversary of the Montreal Comedy Festival.

    Carey was born in Cleveland, Ohio and currently resides in Los Angeles. His birth date is May 23.
