The whole atmosphere (set, music) is very Nintendo Wii

I must admit that I'm not really a fan of the updated theme song either.  It's good they've tried to re-create a classic theme, but this one just leaves me cold.

It gives me "The Fast and the Fortune" vibes.

It's like they activated dark mode for the set and the music this season. Not a fan of all the black behind Pat and the players. The "string" arrangement and all that reverb make the theme sound distant and foreboding.

I admit that I haven't been keeping up with Wheel this season, so I don't know whether the theme is the same for both shows, but when I tuned to ABC as Celebrity Wheel of Fortune was ending, my reaction was, "Why is the Wheel of Fortune theme song angry at me?"

Yep, it's the same one.

I got to hear some of it last week. It sounds like a marching band playing the theme, but for an early-2000s video game. I realize thatís very specific.

The abrupt ending makes it seem like they were running out of time and just decided to stop the song right there.
"Iím not gonna miss a Biggie question, Sara.Ē

Now celebrating his 19th season on GSF!

I actually think it is different, the closing theme's tempo's much faster.
There's also another version on the show's FB page that plays in the "This week's stars" promo vids that sounds like it has a bit more instrumentation.

I agree. They definitely have made different arrangements.
Also the Celebrity version uses more of the "meat" of the theme playing many different parts, while the syndicated one pretty much only uses the same "famous" part repeatedly. Honestly when I first heard the syndicated one I thought whoever recorded it took a page from the ABC themes and just repeated the well known parts  but that doesn't seem to be the case after hearing Primetime version
