I remember exactly once on the nighttime TPiR, Dennis James asked them to stop the clock in the middle of the round.  This was to explain that when he said "higher", they should pick a higher number, and vice-versa.  The contestant was apparently doing the opposite too much.

Not sure if that one had 2 or 3 prizes, though.  I only remember there being two prizes.

That's a thought I had the other day. Does Drew ever stop the clock if things are going haywire? I know Bob did it fairly liberally.

He might, but I'm recalling a game that was rerun recently that went something like this on the first prize: ...$700 - Higher - $800 - Higher - $900 - LOWER - $1,000 - LOWER - $950...and Drew just kept going. The contestant wasted time zeroing in to the low $900s when the price was in the mid $800s, eventually not winning at all.  Not that Drew did anything wrong, but I did find myself wondering if Bob would've handled it differently.

He probably would have, but Drew's the one who did it right -- it's the contestant's responsibility to keep track of what they're doing in Clock Game, not the host's.

Drew actually flubbed up at some point this past season and had the clock operators turn the clock back because of it. Don't think he actually stopped the clock though; just noted it after they finished the first prize and they put six seconds back for the contestant.
