Another nice non-answer.

With all due respect, Chris, why the hell do you care so much why he thinks the way he does?
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Nice evasive answer. Now tell us why and what business it is of yours.

Speaking in general terms, a game show director who misses or refuses to take game-winning reveals should be in another line of work. Roger didn't deserve to go but Bart did. I know both of them.

I'm not agreeing just to kiss anybody's behind or gain status here, but Chris319 is spot on with this one. I don't necessarily agree with him 100% of the time, but he damn sure got it this time.  Roger was the last link from TPIR and Mark Goodson productions, now it's pretty much all Fremantled to hell.  Greco has been with the show, what, about 25 years or so?

The question is, will the new one be better or worse?

I'm inclined to agree.

[quote name=\'clemon79\' post=\'206461\' date=\'Jan 16 2009, 07:55 PM\']I dunno about Roger, but I absolutely am willing to entertain that Bart's leaving the show had to do with what he was being paid, considering how long he had been around, in the absence of any other evidence telling me otherwise.[/quote]

I can safely say that finances didn't play into this.

Who can they bring in that would do a better job as a rookie at a show with as many moving parts as Price?
Andy Felsher. He would have the shortest learning curve of anyone besides perhaps Fred Witten.

Just getting back up to speed.

First, I have directed numerous public access tv shows, as well as doing production -- many of the projects involving Matt Ottingerę.

Second, Andy Felsher does have a distinct advantage.  He directed the ill-fated '94 syndicated version, he also directed Eubanks Card Sharks and the late-80s Now You See It.

Andy does have good credentials, but it's kind of a moot point now.

Wasn't Andy Felsher also playing a role with TPiR Live in Atlantic City a few years ago?

Yes.

Roger told me a story when he attended TPIR Live in San Francisco or San Diego. Andy told him before the show started that Chuck is all wrong for TPIR and not to expect much. After the show was over, Roger said that Chuck was wonderful, vulnerable, & charming and couldn't understand why Andy said that.
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

For the record, Bart Eskander's wife Susan asserts that Bart voluntarily resigned from his position as director of The Price Is Right and was not fired.

The Game Show Forum does not endorse any particular theory or speculation as to why Bart is no longer director of The Price Is Right.
