I do love the new Contestants Row. Still think homebase (not shown) is a little too busy,

Then you may want to reserve judgment until September 25. Those big squares beneath the bid readouts will be displaying the same type of video that's in the monitors on home base.

Are you in touch with Dave Fisher?

I havenít spoken with Dave in about 2 years.

Probably just as well. I'll tell you my stories next time I see you.

Wonderful people, those CBS folk.

I went to a taping on Friday -- my first time at a TPIR taping in around 20 years. I was curious to see the new studio, and it helped that it's much easier for me to get to than Television City is (and has free parking available).

I arrived with a regular "line voucher" ticket at 7:30 for an 8:00 arrival time, and I was one of the last people to get in (I got a number, the family of 6 behind me got numbers, and then they cut it off).

There were two extended stopdowns due to issues with two of the pricing games, but even aside from that, things seemed a bit lackadaisical, for lack of a better word, compared to the way things were run 20 years ago. The taping started at around 11:15 and didn't end until around 1:35. (And then they were going to tape two more shows after lunch -- seemed like it was going to be a long day for everyone.)

During one of the stopdowns, Drew and George got to talking about horror movies. George mentioned Svengoolie, so Drew of course brought up Cleveland's Ghoulardi and pointed out that the guy who played Ghoulardi was also the ABC network announcer -- neither Drew nor George could remember his name, so I got to yell out "Ernie Anderson."

I am aware that he gets national circulation now, but it's still wild to see a mention of Svengoolie outside the Chicago area. You'd think there would be a tourism boom for Berwyn by now.

Seeing the premiere, outside of the new Contestant's Row there's not a lot that felt different. There were brief moments where I subconsciously felt something looked different (usually with staging and spacing) but I don't think that's going to be a persistent issue and definitely not an issue for most of the audience.

I do worry that the wings of the new CR are a little too long to be practical.

Watching the 1st S52 episode as I type this - I agree with this thought.  I keep thinking someone's going to get too excited to get on stage, shortcut the turn just a little too much, & trip over one of the ends.

Watching the premiere today, it just feels like a MAD TV parody

The show also feels like it just exists. Stagnant and just there.
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

2 hours and 20 minutes for one show? What was the nature of the stopdowns and how long do you estimate they took?

I wonder if they're being more lackadaisical because they are no longer paying CBS by the minute for facilities.

I kinda see what you mean, but I think itís just the steepness of the audience.

Havenít watched the show in a minute, except on mute at the gym. The new studio takes some getting used to, but Iím enjoying the show. Iíd be interested to see how long tapings take after they get adjusted to the studio.

My only real gripe is the audio makes it seem like the audience is far from the stage.

I thought they mostly shot Contestantsí Row to make it look fairly familiar. I presume they added the wings on either side to separate it and get a little more out of the trip on stage. I donít mind it, and, as long as itís not an elderly person breaking a bone, if someone trips over it, heck, theyíve got a new blooper.

I do wish theyíd pep up the Showcases once in a while, though.

The parody feeling comes across since they moved. The stagnant feeling I have felt for years, which has nothing to do with the studio move

So i have held this back for a LONG time.

WHY do you continue to comment on the show when you know that 1, you are already pre-disposed to dislike most changes to the show, and 2, nothing they do will meet a standard for production that doesnt exist and honestly cant?
