The Price is Right

Now through Wednesday, December 24, viewers of CBS' "The Price is Right" can enter for a chance to win a Monogrammed Bathrobe from Linum Home Textiles courtesy of the popular game show.
On Thursday, December 25 and Thursday, January 1, CBS is handing fans of "The Young and the Restless" a wonderful Christmas and New Year's present in the form of original episodes of the daytime drama series, the network recently announced.
The SAG-AFTRA National Board announced today that it has reached a tentative agreement with broadcast networks ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX, among other producers, on terms for a successor agreement to the National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting (Network Television Code). The agreement, approved by a 93% vote by the board, covers dramas in first-run syndication, morning news shows, talk shows, serials (soap operas), variety, reality, contest, sports and promotional announcements.
As previously reported, James O'Halloran won "The Price is Right's" next male model competition when host Drew Carey announced his name during Part 1 of the daytime game show. O'Halloran, 30, came on down the famous aisles of the Bob Barker studio before conversing with Carey, who noted that not only is the model young and good looking, "He's got to have that Australian accent too?"
After five weeks of eliminations and heartbreak, "The Price is Right" narrowed its next male model search down to three - Jonathan Morgan, Jay Byars and James O’Halloran - when the finalists appeared on the Monday, December 1 edition of CBS' "The Talk." After the reveal, America began voting for who they felt best fit the brand of the game show when the polls opened via priceisright.com/nextpricemodel. Polls closed on Friday, December 5. Today, December 8, the game show revealed who would finally take home the prize of becoming the next male model on "The Price is Right," which entails a week-long modeling gig beginning Monday, December 15. So who did America choose?
You met the three finalists for the next male model search currently underway at CBS' "The Price is Right," via their appearance on the Monday, December 1 edition of CBS' "The Talk," but what does the game show's first male model, Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Ridgeway, "Days of our Lives"; ex-Pete Cortlandt, "All My Children") have to say about another person taking on his former daytime role? The actor recently spoke with Soap Opera Network about his experience on the game show, what it was like helping judge the competition, and responds to comments made about him by "Price is Right" executive producer, Mike Richards.

Call it a coincidence of sorts if you like but CBS' "The Talk" today announced the three finalists for the ultimate prize of becoming "The Price is Right's" next male model, and their names all just so happen to start with the letter "J."
For the week of November 17-21, 2014, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" hit a season high in total viewers with an average of 5.06 million viewers tuning in each day. "The Bold and the Beautiful" also attracted its second largest weekly audience of the season with 3.74 million viewers. Numbers are based on Nielsen Media Research Live+Same Day ratings data.

With Craig Ferguson set to step down as host of "The Late Late Show" on Friday, December 19, CBS has announced that following re-runs of the late night talk show, special editions will be produced featuring rotating guest hosts and special after-dark editions of CBS Daytime's "The Talk" from Monday, January 5 - Friday, March 6, 2015 (12:37-1:37 AM, ET/PT).
It’s raining men at “The Price Is Right,” which has been in the thick of a national male model search of manly proportions for the past couple of weeks. And seeing as how the game show not only helped launch the career of “Days of our Lives’” Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Rogers; ex-Pete Cortlandt, “All My Children”) but also decided to include “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) and Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) in this year’s search (which Soap Opera Network was the first to reveal), we decided to have executive producer Mike Richards come on down and give us the full scoop!
CBS Daytime is celebrating Thanksgiving early with a buffet of holiday-themed episodes of all of its daytime shows, including “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” which will air on Wednesday, November 26.
“The Young and the Restless’” Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) and Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) already have quite the dream gig, both being stars of daytime’s most-watched drama series. But the pair was recently given an opportunity of Showcase Showdown proportions: They were asked to participate in “The Price Is Right’s” recent national male model search, for which they not only filmed soap opera scenes with the contestants, but also helped narrow down the final five hotties to the final three that America will have the chance to vote on!
It’s been America’s favorite game show for as long as most can remember, but “The Price Is Right” is looking completely different these days. However, if Mike Richards has done the job he intended since stepping into the role of executive producer in 2009, nobody’s the wiser that the game show has basically done a 180 in recent years!
