The Price is Right
ALL THINGS RELATED

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.
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!
“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!
As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.
As we previously reported, “The Price Is Right” recently launched a nationwide male model search, and all of the excitement has culminated into a web series in which America can view and later vote on the final contestants hoping to follow in the footsteps of former model Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Rogers, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Pete Cortlandt, “All My Children”). Hundreds of young men auditioned with the dream of winning the week-long modeling contract with the game show, but only 30 made it to Round One of the web series — which aired its first episode today!
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy: “The Price Is Right” has launched a national male model search of epic proportions!After sorting through hundreds of hopefuls found online and at casting calls in Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Dallas and Spartanburg, South Carolina, the show asked 30 young men to come on down and compete to win a one-week modeling contract. The kicker: All of the excitement will be shown to fans via a special five-episode, reality-style web elimination series that begins next week!
As previously reported, everyone loves CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and the year-to-year growth in Total Viewers, Women 25-54 and Women 18-49 during the week of October 6-10, 2014 continues to prove that point. In addition to "Y&R," CBS is experiencing overall growth with "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Price is Right," "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Talk." In the case of "B&B," the soap is seeing plenty of women enjoying the storyline surrounding Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Caroline Spencer Forrester (Linsey Godfrey) along with the happenings of Hope Logan (Kim Matula) following the recent revelation that she's with child after a recent romp with one of the Spencer brothers. The soap is up 23% in Women 25-54 and 38% in Women 18-49 compared to the same week last year.
