Hands down, my favorite show in the mornings growing up was The Price is Right. I used to look forward to summer break because that meant I could sleep in until 11:00 AM, and when I woke up, The Price is Right would be on. I’d sit on the couch with my cereal and watch that show every single day. I loved Bob Barker. I loved yelling out prices at the contestants. I loved picking out a favorite contestant and hoping he would win. If that contestant happened to win extra money when he spun the wheel? My entire day was made. I was absolutely terrified, regardless of how many times my mom told me otherwise, that our Bassett Hounds were neither spayed nor neutered (hint: I had no idea what that meant) and that this oversight on our part would prove to be disastrous. In short, I was a complete and total Price is Right groupie. I don’t get to watch it as much anymore now that I have a job, because I’m not sure the show’s greatness would translate that well via DVR. Plus, nothing against Drew Carey; I’m sure he’s a great guy, but I’m not sure anyone can live up to my beloved Bob Barker. Next time you see it on www.tvbydirect.com, check it out and let me know if he even comes close.
