Roger, is this the first time a rhetorical question was literally answered on this board?

(Roger nods)

This is a historic moment on the Game Show Forum!

My theory, and it is merely a theory, mind you, is that somebody currently or formerly connected with CBS is getting a chunk of Drew's outsized salary.

Drew reportedly used to show up for rehearsal without having learned his lines, so to speak.

Didn’t both Barker and Carey negotiate their salaries with CBS but were paid by the production company?

I don't know about Drew, but Barker certainly did. I don't know if they were technically employees of CBS or Fremantle.

Are you in touch with Dave Fisher?

Does anyone know how many stagehands and technicians came with the show from TV City to the new studio?

There's now an Instragram post that shows the audience and contestant's row. Definitely feels smaller but I don't mind it.
This signature is currently under construction.

They took it down for some reason.

I haven’t spoken with Dave in about 2 years.
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

Try this link. I do love the new Contestants Row. Still think homebase (not shown) is a little too busy, but they did a great job with the new studio IMO.

I just get Mad TV vibes looking at this like it’s a spoof of itself.

COVID and the studio move gave them an excuse to downsize which I’m sure they had wanted to do for years

Could they fit 320 in there if they wanted to?

Doubt it, we counted 170-ish seats in the studio.

The studio fits 170 exact.

So when I first heard about the move I had the same thought. But I don't mind the steeper audience setup...it's not a full set of bleachers like the foreign versions.

I'm pretty sure that was intentional -- I think their MO for this project was "make it look as much as possible like we didn't move."

I hope it's not awful, but I really like the smaller audience. Pre-COVID, 33 was getting more and more of a crazed frat-party vibe. Not that I know anything about crazed frat parties, mind.

I think 170 is *fine,* especially considering how amped up they're gonna be by George and the audience wranglers.
