Season 48 (2019-2020)[edit | edit source]

Pricing game calendar for Season 48, hosted by Scorpz.


Week 1 (1,881 – 882xK): September 24-25, December 6, September 23, 27

  • Originally scheduled for September 23-27.
  • Originally rescheduled for September 24-26, 23, 27.
  • Despite not being aired, Wednesday's show does appear to have mistakenly been made available on some of CBS's digital platforms for at least a brief period on the evening of September 26 and has since resurfaced elsewhere on the internet. As the entire show is viewable, I have chosen to include its details in the timeline and the game calendar.
  • On Monday, with Mike's departure, Evelyn becomes executive producer, and Adam becomes co-executive producer.
  • On this week's shows, the dollar sign statue at the beginning of the opening is covered in gold glitter.
  • On this week's shows, the text "48 Years" appears at the base of the logo on Door #4. This version of the logo also appears on the center row of Turntable screens, and it appears during every commercial outro in addition to the usual spots.
  • The last line of the opening varies from day to day this week, as follows:
    • Monday's opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we celebrate premiere week on The Price Is Right!"
    • Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday's openings end with, "You are the first four contestants as we kick off Season 48 of The Price Is Right!"
    • Friday's opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we wrap up premiere week on The Price Is Right!"
  • On this week's shows, Door #2 is flanked by gold dollar sign statues with a banner on them that says, "Season 48."
  • This season begins with both Amber and Manuela on maternity leave. During their absences, a number of soap opera actors and actresses appear as guest Beauties alongside Rachel, James, and Devin much more frequently than usual.
  • On each show this week, a bonus prize is awarded to the first contestant who wins their pricing game. The prizes, which are not revealed until they are won, are as follows:
    • Monday's bonus is $25,000.
    • Tuesday's bonus is a luxury travel trailer.
    • Wednesday's bonus is a trip for 10 to the Bahamas.
    • Thursday's bonus is a Tesla Model 3.
    • Friday's bonus is the show covering the contestant's cell phone bill, car payments, and rent for a year.
  • On Monday, the overhead screen makes its first appearance.
  • Every lineup this week includes exactly one game that debuted in 1972.
  • On Monday, the top of the Plinko board around the logo is much darker than usual.
  • On Monday, the Big Wheel money win graphics are changed to gold-trimmed lights in the Pricedown font; the lights themselves are gold for $1,000, green for $10,000, and presumably red for $25,000.
  • On Monday, the background on the Showcase podiums is changed to a solid blue field with cascading dollar signs, a la the Turntable screens.
  • On Tuesday, the second Side by Side board is introduced.
  • Wednesday marks the debut of Grand Game's third logo. Additionally, the board's surface is smoothed out, gold trim is added around the grocery cubbies, and the existing gold trim around the winnings display and the target price is widened slightly.
  • On Wednesday, for no apparent reason, Cover Up uses Line em Up's "think" music.
  • Wednesday's show, whose bonus was the trip to the Bahamas, has a note during the credits reading, "This episode was recorded before Hurricane Dorian devastated other islands in the Bahamas. To help the people of the Bahamas with disaster relief, please visit RedCross.org."
  • On Thursday, after the third game, Drew semi-incorrectly states that "We're gonna spin the wheel for the first time this season;" this refers to the episode's broadcast date of September 23. Similarly, Drew later refers to "the first Showcase round of the season" and mentions that this is "our premiere episode."
  • On Thursday, a new "Double Showcase Winner" graphic debuts, using the same style as the new "$1,000" Big Wheel graphics; the winner's total is also displayed in this manner.


Week 2 (1,882 – 883xK): September 30-October 4

  • On Monday, a longer Card Game table is introduced, allowing both Drew and the contestant to stand behind it throughout the game.
  • On Monday, while helping contestant Patricia in the second Showcase Showdown, Drew fails twice to get the Big Wheel all the way around. The bad and good spins were spliced together for broadcast, resulting in noticeable edits where the wheel appears to suddenly gain speed.
  • Tuesday's show is themed around Breast Cancer Awareness Month; everyone in the audience either has, has survived, or has somehow been affected by breast cancer. Additionally, the following aspects of this episode are different than usual:
    • Most of the colored lights on the set are various shades of pink.
    • Door #4 shows the logo with the word "Price" and the right-hand background in pink, the left-hand background in white, and a pink ribbon covering the dollar sign, all against a blue background with cascading, pink bubbles; this version of the logo also appears on the Showcase podiums, as well as during every commercial outro in addition to the usual spots.
    • The light border is pink.
    • The opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we raise awareness for breast cancer this month on The Price Is Right!"
    • The center row of Turntable screens and the Contestants' Row displays show pink ribbons against a pinkless version of the background from Door #4; the remaining Turntable screens show only the background, and George's podium shows the background with the logo from Door #4. When the contestants bid, the graphics on Contestants' Row wipe away to reveal the normal colors.
    • The borders of Contestants' Row are pink.
    • Drew's entrance is backed by a pink dollar sign prize backdrop instead of the Barker Wall.
    • The background of the graphical Switch? logo is pink.
    • George's calldown window and its dollar sign are pink.
    • The G-T asterisks in front of Contestants' Row are replaced with a pink ribbon.
    • The Big Wheel's split-screen separator is pink.
    • The G-T asterisks on the Showcase podiums are pink.
  • On Tuesday, Carson Kressley appears to help present the prize package for Cliff Hangers, which includes him taking the contestant on a $5,000 shopping spree after the show. Carson also appears throughout the rest of the show as an extra model.
  • On Tuesday, everyone in the audience receives a two-night vacation to Palm Springs, an abbreviated version of the fourth Item up for Bids; this also serves as a PriceIsRight.com plug, as George urges viewers to visit the website for a chance to win one of said vacations.
  • On Tuesday, Pick-a-Number is played for a car.
  • On Tuesday, new fonts are introduced for Grand Game's grocery labels and prices, with the latter becoming considerably larger.
  • On Tuesday, the price cards in Grand Game are much darker than usual, almost looking as though there are no lights on in spite of everything around them looking normal.
  • On Tuesday, while Drew is signing off, the pink ribbons on the middle row of Turntable screens are replaced in a flash of white light with the episode's altered TPIR logo; this is actually a permanent change, although not with these specific graphics.
  • On Wednesday, contestant Yvette, who became something of a crowd favorite after repeatedly being one-upped in Contestants' Row, is recruited as an extra model for the second showcase.
  • On Wednesday, the normal graphics for the logo appearing on the Turntable wall during Drew's sign-off debut; each half of it flies in from the side of each screen in the middle row.


Week 3 (1,883 – 884xK): October 7-11

  • On Monday, for no apparent reason, Make Your Move uses Line em Up's "think" music.
  • Thursday's show is the ceremonial 9,000th episode; in reality, it is episode 9,024. The following aspects of this episode are different than usual:
    • Door #4 shows the logo, with gold text reading "9000th" at its base, against a background of gold lights flanked by blue and punctuated by cascading bubbles and fireworks shooting behind the numbers; these graphics also appear on George's display and the center row of Turntable screens, and the background appears on the remaining Turntable screens. Additionally, this version of the logo appears during every commercial outro during which a clip is played in addition to the usual spots.
    • The opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we celebrate the 9,000th episode of The Price Is Right!"
    • The set is decorated for the special.
    • The lights between the Turntable screens are orange.
    • Everyone who wins their pricing game receives a $9,000 bonus.
    • Some of the commercial outros include clips of various landmark episodes from throughout the series: The ceremonial 1,000th show after Act 2; the ceremonial 3,000th show after the first Showcase Showdown; the ceremonial 5,000th show after Act 5; the ceremonial 6,000th show after Act 6; and the 8,000th show after the second Showcase Showdown. The clips also include the episodes' airdates, although the "3,000th" show mistakenly gives a date of 1968 instead of 1986. During the fourth Item up for Bids, which offers a TV playing the above clips, Drew directs viewers to the show's Facebook page if they want to watch them again.
    • Every commercial outro features a dollar sign wipe revealing the full background from Door #4, with the music fading out during the transition.
    • Grand Game is played for $90,000, with the lower prizes raised accordingly.
    • The bonus for getting a dollar on the Big Wheel is $9,000.
    • Three games, including both Cliff Hangers and Push Over, are played for a car.
  • On Thursday, the Turntable graphics do not change during Drew's sign-off, the logo having already been there throughout the show


Week 4 (1,884 – 885xK): October 14, 18, 15, 17, 16

  • Originally scheduled for October 14-18.
  • This week is Big Money Week; each day, the first game is played for an unusually large cash prize, as follows:
    • On Monday, Plinko is played for $1,000,000, with a $200,000 center slot; additionally, the lower prizes are raised to $500, $1,000, and $2,500.
    • On Tuesday, Clock Game is played for $50,000, with the money serving as the bonus prize.
    • On Wednesday, Punch a Bunch is played for $250,000; the board contains 10 $1,000 slips, 10 $2,500 slips, 15 $5,000 slips, nine $10,000 slips, five $20,000 slips, and one $250,000 slip.
    • On Thursday, Let 'em Roll is played for $100,000, with Pricedown dollar signs replacing the cars on the cubes; additionally, the regular cash prizes are raised to $2,500, $5,000, and $10,000.
    • On Friday, It's in the Bag is played for $80,000, with all the prizes multiplied by five.
  • Additionally, the cash value of everything won in the other five pricing games is added to a progressive jackpot that is awarded to the Showcase winner at the end of the show. (Drew's explanation makes it sound like the jackpot accumulates only if a game is won, but this is belied by the totals given.) While going to commercial after each of these games, the jackpot is shown accumulating (or not accumulating) a la the Gas Money display in a cash game-esque graphic (unless none of the games have been won yet -- the jackpot is not shown accumulating after losses whether it increases or not); it is also displayed after the second Showcase Showdown, at the beginning of the Showcase, and before and/or after the final commercial, as well as in the middle of Tuesday's Pass the Buck. Oddly, it is not shown after Secret "X" on Tuesday, possibly because of the awkwardness of increasing it by only $37; despite this, it does show the correct amount later in the episode. It is never explained what happens to the jackpot in the case of a double overbid, although Drew's words seem to imply that it would simply not be won.
  • On top of this, the following aspects of this week are different than usual:
    • Door #4 shows the logo, with the text "Big Money Week" at its base, against a background of gold sparkles as dollar bills rain down around it; these graphics also appear on George's display, and the sparkles and dollar signs appear on the Turntable screens, with the center row also showing the "Big Money Week" text (as well as the logo on Wednesday and Friday). The "Big Money Week" version of the logo also appears during all commercial outros in addition to the usual spots.
    • The dollar sign statue in the opening is covered with green glitter.
    • Glittery green dollar sign statues with glittery gold edges and bases are placed between the Big Doors.
    • On Monday, the opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we kick off Big Money Week on The Price Is Right!" On Tuesday, it ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we wrap up Big Money Week on The Price Is Right!" (This was presumably intended for Friday's show before the airdates were shuffled around.) On the remaining shows, it ends with, "You are the first four contestants as Big Money Week continues on The Price Is Right!"
    • The Contestants' Row displays are sparkly versions of their usual colors and have a Pricedown dollar sign at the center; when the contestants bid, the normal colors are revealed in the wake of a wave of dollar bills.
    • Drew's entrance is backed by a set of prize backdrops with dollar bills and Pricedown dollar signs on them instead of the Barker Wall.
    • The light strips on the Big Doors, the dollar sign statue, and most of the lights on the Turntable are green throughout the show.
    • George's calldown window and its dollar sign are green.
    • The Showcase winner's total is shown in the same font as the progressive jackpot graphics.
  • On Monday, if Plinko's center slot is hit, "Dig We Must" plays alongside an abbreviated version of the game's intro graphics showing "$200,000."
  • Monday's show establishes that if the Turntable walls have special graphics, they will remain behind the logo during Drew's sign-off, with the logo replacing any other text.
  • On Wednesday, for no apparent reason, Punch a Bunch is staged much closer to the Big Doors than usual.
  • On Wednesday, Balance Game is played for a car.
  • On Thursday, the logo does not appear on the Turntable during Drew's sign-off.
  • On Friday, instead of altering the "$16,000" sign, It's in the Bag's prize is introduced on a trio of trip screens.
  • On Tuesday, Drew semi-incorrectly calls the show "a good wrap-up to Big Money Week;" this refers to the episode's out-of-order broadcast on Friday. Similarly, on Friday, Drew he semi-incorrectly states that Big Money Week "continues tomorrow," referring to the episode's out-of-order broadcast on Wednesday.


Week 5 (1,885 – 886xK): October 21-23, 25, 24

  • Originally scheduled for October 21-25.
  • On Tuesday, Check Game's win range is raised to $8,000-$9,000.
  • On Tuesday, contestant John's shirt has a picture of his sister, Elizabeth, with the words, "My sister made me wear this." Their relationship becomes something of a running joke throughout the show, culminating with Elizabeth modeling a car while John is in the Showcase.
  • On Wednesday, which was taped earlier than the game's last two playings, Grand Game uses its old grocery labels and prices.


Week 6 (1,886 – 887xK): October 28-November 1

  • On Monday, Hi Lo is rolled out after the prize is revealed.
  • On Wednesday, David and Dylan Narz, the son and grandson of Jack Narz (and, by extension, the nephew and great-nephew of both Tom Kennedy and Bill Cullen), are in the audience; they are shown in close-up while coming out of the final commercial.
  • Wednesday's first showcase includes $3,000 in cash; this is noteworthy only because it is presented on a Check Game check.
  • Thursday's show is a Halloween party; the entire set is decorated as "Drew's Diner" from what Drew calls "the best version of the 1950s." Further notes about this episode will come later this week when I get a chance to write them.
  • On Thursday, Grocery Game is played for a car -- specifically, a restored 1956 Chevy Bel Air.
  • On Friday, Drew notes that "we got a new dollar" during Pass the Buck; the prop in question had actually been in place since late in Season 46.


Week 7 (1,887 – 888xK): November 4-8

  • On Monday, Drew announces that various stars from CBS's other daytime shows will be appearing as guest Barker's Beauties throughout the month of November; while this had already been occurring with some regularity, a different guest actor or actress now appears each day.
  • On Monday and Friday, counting the guest stars from The Bold and the Beautiful, three Barker's Beauties are present.
  • On Tuesday, Grand Game uses its old grocery labels and the dark price cards from Week 2.


Week 8 (1,888 – 889xK): November 11-12, 18, 14, 22

  • Originally scheduled for November 11-15.
  • Monday's show is themed around Veterans' Day; everyone in the audience is a veteran. Additionally, the following aspects of this episode are different than usual:
    • Door #4 shows the Barker logo on a shield above the word "Veterans," against a field of stripes and a background of cascading stars. These graphics also appear on the Turntable walls (with the top and bottom rows only showing the background) and George's display, and the Carey logo and the "Veterans" text appear during every commercial outro in addition to the usual spots.
    • Most of the lights on the set are red, white, and blue.
    • The opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as we honor veterans on The Price Is Right!"
    • Drew's entrance is backed by a set of prize backdrops showing the American flag instead of the Barker Wall.
    • The set is decorated for the holiday.
    • The G-T asterisks in front of Contestants' Row are replaced with red, white, and blue stars.
    • The Contestants' Row displays show rotating stars on a field of blue; when the contestants bid, these graphics wipe away to reveal the normal colors.
    • The borders of Contestants' Row are blue on the red and yellow displays and red on the blue and green displays.
    • The G-T asterisks on the Showcase podiums are blue.
  • On Monday, everyone in the audience receives a fitness tracker, a portion of the third Item up for Bids; this also serves as a PriceIsRight.com plug, as George urges viewers to visit the website for a chance to win one of said trackers.
  • Beginning on Monday, the Showcase winner's total is tinted gold.
  • On Tuesday and Thursday, no guest stars from CBS's other daytime shows appear.
  • Wednesday's second showcase is focused on the mountain climber and includes a montage of his various outfits from throughout the Carey era.
  • On Friday, counting the guest star from The Young and the Restless, three Barker's Beauties are present.


Week 9 (1,889 – 890xK): March 23-27

  • Originally scheduled for November 18-22.
  • This week of shows is The Price Is Right/Let's Make a Deal Ma$h Up Week; each day, The Price Is Right uses one recurring deal from Let's Make a Deal as a pricing game, and Let's Make a Deal likewise plays one pricing game as a deal. Wayne Brady, Jonathan Mangum, and Tiffany Coyne also make several guest appearances.
  • The deals on The Price Is Right are as follows:
    • On Monday, Car Pong is played.
    • On Tuesday, Smash for Cash is played. The spelling of the deal's name has been changed since its previous appearance in Season 44; "Cash" is now spelled with an "s" instead of a dollar sign.
    • On Wednesday, Accelerator is played.
    • On Thursday, Gold Rush is played.
    • On Friday, Go For a Spin is played.
  • The pricing games on Let's Make a Deal are as follows:
    • On Monday, Plinko is played. The contestant is given two chips for free and wins more by picking either Jonathan, Tiffany, or Drew (who makes a guest appearance to host the game), each of whom has an envelope that contains either one, two, or three chips. The $1,000 slots have cards placed above them with pictures of an LMaD box (on the left slot) and an LMaD envelope (on the right slot); these are never explained, as neither one was hit during the game, although the logical assumption would seem to be that they contained either a prize or a Zonk and that the first time a contestant hit either one, they would pick either the card or $1,000. Wayne also offers the contestant $2,000 to quit before dropping her last chip, presumably instead of whatever money she had already won; it seems likely that this amount was dependent upon how much had been awarded up to that point in the game.
    • On Tuesday, Dice Game is played; George makes a guest appearance to both host and announce the game. The only difference in the rules is that after the contestant is finished rolling, Wayne offers her $1,000 to quit the game, with additional offers in increments of $500 after each digit is revealed (excluding when 1 or 6 was rolled, since those are guaranteed to be right). Oddly, George does not reveal the numbers from left to right; it is not known whether this was intentional.
      • Oddly, Dice Game is also played on Tuesday's Price Is Right.
    • On Wednesday, 3 Strikes is played for a regular car; James makes a guest appearance to model it and help run the game. The contestant is given $2,000 at the start of the game. She does not need to guess the car's price (in fact, the price is announced at the start of the game) but instead must simply draw all the numbers before getting three strikes; however, strike balls are only removed from the bag after being drawn if the contestant gives $1,000 back to Wayne.
    • On Thursday, Cliff Hangers is played for $3,000 or a car. The game uses the same format from Season 44's Ma$h-Up Week. Rachel makes a guest appearance to help present the game.
    • On Friday, instead of an actual pricing game, three contestants spin the Big Wheel (or, more accurately, a smaller replica of the Big Wheel; the prop in question still has the gold glitter and Super Ball!! dollar signs from the end of the Barker era). Each contestant is given one spin and then has the option to pick a multiplier from one of three envelopes or trade it for a curtain or box; spinning a dollar earns $1,000 and a bonus spin worth as much as $25,000, although whether this works the same way as during the Showcase Showdown and how it would affect the rest of the deal is never explained. Rachel and Devin make guest appearances to help run the game.
      • Friday's first deal also utilizes a variation of Punch a Bunch called "Punch a One", designed around the game's pink color scheme; however, aside from the presence of a miniature punchboard with two holes and a logo, the game really has very little to do with Punch a Bunch, as the holes are merely two of several options available in the deal.
  • Additionally, the following aspects of this week's shows are different than usual:
    • While not directly related to TPIR, it's worth noting that the Price segments on Let's Make a Deal use the Barker version of theme song; Wednesday's show also uses the 1979-2007 version of "Walking" from the opening.
    • During every commercial outro and the closed-captioning plugs, the TPIR and LMaD logos appear, merge with one another, and come out with one show's logo on the other's background surrounding a "Ma$h Up Week" logo that takes elements from both of them. This graphic also appears on Door #4 except during the opening and on the Turntable screens (or in some cases, just the center row of screens) during Drew's explanation before the first Item up for Bids and during the deal itself.
    • On Monday, Wayne, Jonathan, and Tiffany host, announce, and model during Car Pong. They also appear to model the first Item up for Bids and help Drew introduce the week's theme, and they act as extra Barker's Beauties throughout the show. Additionally, Wayne helps to present the second showcase, which features prizes based on his interests.
    • On Tuesday-Friday, Tiffany and Jonathan appear throughout the show as extra Barker's Beauties; as such, George does not model during Most Expen$ive. Jonathan also helps to announce Wednesday's sixth Item up for Bids, which he models with George.
    • On Tuesday, Tiffany also helps to present the second showcase, which features LMaD's Zonk mascots modeling actual prizes for a change.
    • On Wednesday, Jonathan helps to present the second showcase, which he runs like Let's Make a Deal, offering the contestant either Door #1 or Door #2, then giving her a chance to switch doors after the first prize is shown; George interrupts him at this point to remind him that this is The Price Is Right and says that the showcase will consist of both doors.
    • On Thursday, Jonathan and Tiffany help to present the second showcase, which is themed around Gold Rush; the main Gold Rush board is onstage during the showcase
    • On Friday, Wayne appears from Let's Make a Deal's audience via a trip screen to help present the second showcase.
  • On Monday, the logo does not appear on the Turntable wall during Drew's sign-off.
  • As they were not aired until March, this week's credits include a disclaimer noting that the episode was taped before the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak; it states that trips to areas affected by the disease "may be fulfilled with alternative arrangements" and urges viewers to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website at CDC.gov for more information about the virus.
  • Thursday's first showcase, which is themed around sunshine and rainbows, ends with a (regular) car at the end of the Golden Road (which, oddly, is at Door #3).


Week 10 (1,890 – 891xK): November 25-27

  • Thanksgiving week; only three shows.
  • Monday concludes the month of CBS daytime guest stars by celebrating the 10th year of The Talk with its two longest-standing hosts, Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne. Sheryl and Sharon also help to present the second showcase, which is themed around their show.
  • On Monday, including the guests from The Talk, three Barker's Beauties are present.
  • Wednesday's show is themed as a "college rivals" episode; pairs of students or alumni from rival schools are called down, with a coin flip determining which school's student is called first, and the rival of the winner of each Item up for Bids is sent back to the audience (but is awarded $1,000 if that person subsequently loses their pricing game). This results in two new contestants being called before each game. The following other aspects of this episode are also different than usual:
    • Instead of using the normal opening, the show begins with a shot of Door #4 and pans out to show guest model Melissa Ordway, George, and Devin in front of Contestants' Row; the three explain the premise of the episode, noting that the weekend after Thanksgiving is a huge time for college football. At the end, in lieu of the opening spiel, George says, "So it's time to kick off and find our first college rivals on The Price Is Right!" The screen then transitions back to Door #4 via a dollar sign wipe, after which the graphics from the beginning of the normal opening play, "Walking" comes on, and George begins calling the first four contestants. Prize music plays throughout this altered sequence, bookended by the first reveal cue from Triple Play.
    • Door #4 shows the logo on a football (which doubles as the body of a pilgrim hat-wearing turkey) with the football helmet-flanked words "College Rivals" at its base, with a football stadium whose lights radiate fall colors as the background. The same background appears on the Turntable screens and George's podium, with the turkey version of the logo on George's display and the center Turntable screen and the "College Rivals" graphics on the center-left and center-right Turntable screens.
    • The G-T asterisks around the audience, the lights on the Turntable, and George's podium all show traditional fall colors.
    • The stage in the back of the audience is decorated as a football field, as are the aisles.
    • The Barker's Beauties wear football jerseys; Devin specifically wears his actual college football jersey from Slippery Rock University.
    • The Contestants' Row displays show foam fingers in the appropriate school's colors, with left hands on the red and yellow displays and right hands on the blue and green displays, all against the Door #4 stadium background from Season 45's college rivals episode; when the contestants bid, these patterns wipe away to reveal the normal colors.
    • The college rivalries are announced and shown on Door #4 before each pair of contestants is called; each contestant's specific school is also announced.
    • Because of the rivalry format, the first four contestants are required to line up from left to right in Contestants' Row; in subsequent acts, the first contestant called is required to take the red or yellow spot and the second the blue or green spot.
    • The opening ends with, "You are the first two college rival to face off on The Price Is Right!"
    • The G-T asterisks in front of Contestants' Row are replaced with the football helmets from Door #4.
    • When Drew enters, he runs through a banner displaying the "College Rivals" version of the logo from Season 45 before coming through Door #2 onto a football field that is flanked by plumes of pink smoke coming from bases with the words "College" and "Rivals" on them; additionally, he is backed by spotlights and pillars instead of by the Barker Wall.
    • The set is decorated for the special.
    • During the body of the show, college marching band music is played during contestant calldowns. After naming both contestants, George says, "You're next next college rivals on The Price Is Right!" Only after George finishes talking does "Walking" start playing.
    • The football field carpet from Drew's entrance is placed outside Door #2 during Acts 2 and 6 for One Wrøng Price and Do the Math.
    • The logo, accompanied by the "College Rivals" text and clashing helmets from Door #4, appears during every commercial outro in addition to the usual spots.
    • Beth Mowins gives play-by-play coverage of the Showcase Showdowns.
    • The Big Wheel carpet is replaced with a football field carpet, with a football in place of the G-T asterisks.
    • The G-T asterisks on the Showcase podiums are orange.
    • During Drew's sign-off, the logo only flies onto the center Turntable screen.
  • On Wednesday, in a reflection of the change in TV screens from fullscreen to widescreen, the contestant window in Cliff Hangers is changed from a square to a rectangle.


Week 11 (1,891 – 892xK): December 2

The second showcase is themed around this anniversary; the game is staged behind the doors between two trip screens during it, with the blocks spelling out "1999" "21" "2020" (with the latter in the blue window) and the prize label reading "Happy Birthday!"
  • Wednesday's show does not include the COVID-19 disclaimer.


Week 25 (1,905 – 906xK): March 9-13

  • Every day this week, the first contestant to win their game receives a $20,000 bonus from Publishers Clearing House, complete with a check presentation from the Prize Patrol.
  • On Thursday, Hi Lo uses its classic reveal.


Week 26 (1,906 – 907xK): March 16

  • Only one show, on Monday.
  • This week was originally planned with five shows; this appears to have been based on the mistaken assumption that the March Madness tournament would begin next week and was fixed long before any episodes were taped. (The tournament for this year was ultimately cancelled due to concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus, but this occurred far too close to air for more episodes to be added to the schedule.)
  • In the wake of Week 9 being moved to next week, every show for the remainder of the season was pushed forward one week from where it was on the original schedule. As only two episodes from this period were taped anywhere near the time of this adjustment and the staff would thus have had time to adjust anything date-sensitive, I have chosen to mark them with their new airdates.


Week 27 (1,907 – 908xK): March 30-April 3

  • Originally scheduled for (and ultimately moved back to) March 30-April 3.
  • Originally rescheduled for March 30-April 2, May 29.
  • This week was originally planned with only a Monday show, scheduled for March 23 before Week 9 was moved; this appears to have been based on the mistaken belief that the March Madness tournament would begin that week and was changed long before any episodes were taped.


Week 28 (1,908 – 909xK): April 6-10

  • On Friday, Vend-O-Price is played for a car.


Week 29 (1,909 – 910xK): April 13-17


Week 30 (1,910 – 911xK): April 27-May 1

  • Originally scheduled for April 20-24.


Week 31 (1,911 – 912xK): April 20-23

  • Only four shows; no Friday episode.
  • Originally scheduled for April 27-30.
  • This week was originally planned with five shows, with Friday's show intended to focus on college students; however, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the episode was never produced. To fill out the broadcast week, CBS reaired the Friday show from Season 47's Kids Week both on April 24 and when the week was rerun during the summer.
  • This week is Kids Week. Every day, the contestants are children of a different age group, as follows:
    • On Monday, one preschooler plays alongside one of the parents.
      • The age group is represented on the video screens by a graphic of the word "Preschool" in magnetic toy letters.
      • The opening ends with, "You are the first eight contestants as we kick off Kids Week with preschoolers on The Price Is Right!"
      • The extended version of Contestants' Row is used.
      • The borders of the Contestants' Row displays are the same colors as their screens.
    • On Tuesday, one elementary schooler plays alongside one of the parents.
      • The age group is represented on the video screens by a graphic of the word "Elementary" stitched onto a sheet of yellow cloth.
      • The opening ends with, "You are the first 10 contestants as we continue Kids Week on The Price Is Right!"
      • The extended version of Contestants' Row is used.
    • On Wednesday, middle schoolers play by themselves; they are joined by a parent during the Showcase.
      • The age group is represented on the video screens by a graphic of the words "Middle School" backed by pulsing stars.
      • The opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as Kids Week continues on The Price Is Right!"
      • Due to the contestants' ages, no car games are played; the only cars offered appear in the Showcase, once the contestants have been joined by a parent.
    • On Thursday, high schoolers play by themselves.
      • The age group is represented by the text "High School" in front of a row of red lockers; on Door #4, the lockers run behind the logo.
      • The opening ends with, "You are the first four contestants as Kids Week continues on The Price Is Right!"
      • The borders of the Contestants' Row displays are the same colors as their screens.
  • On Thursday, three games, including both Safe Crackers and Pick-A-Number, are played for a car.


Week 32 (1,912 – 913xK): May 4-7

  • Only four shows; no Friday episode.
  • This week was originally planned with five shows; however, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Friday episode was never produced.


Week 33 (1,913 – 914xK): May 11-15 + Monday night

  • The Price Is Right at Night 4: With RuPaul (#040SP) airs on Monday night.
    • The numbering here may end up changing; as far as is known, episode #039SP is planned but has not been taped due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Primetime
  • The following aspects are different from the first two TPIR at Night episodes (discounting the changes that were obviously Christmas-releated):
    • There is no silver glitter on the dollar sign statue in the opening.
    • The logo uses its normal colors.
    • Door #4 has no special graphics except for the "TPIR at Night" logo.
    • The doorframe and LED strip in the light border are dark blue.
    • The show is not identified as "The Price Is Right at Night" during the opening spiel.
    • A nighttime version of the Barker Wall is introduced, with a graphical (as opposed to physical) dollar sign against a starry night sky background.
    • Dollar sign statues are placed between the Big Doors.
    • The Turntable screens show a night sky background, with the "TPIR at Night" logo appearing in the center row.
    • George's podium is gold, and its display shows no special graphics.
    • The Contestants' Row displays are their normal colors, although their borders remain gold.
    • The G-T asterisks between the Big Doors are absent.
    • The music played while coming back from commercial during the Showcase plays while coming out of every commercial.
  • RuPaul, who is called to come on down before the first game, plays for Planned Parenthood. He also helps to present the second showcase, which is themed around him.
  • One Away is played for a $33,000 Nissan 370Z.


Week 34 (1,914 – 915xK): May 18-22


Week 35 (1,915 – 916xK): May 25-28

  • Only four shows; no Friday episode.
  • This week was originally planned with five shows, with Friday's show themed around the ACM Awards, which had been scheduled to air on CBS on April 5 (episode #9165K would have aired out of order on April 3, with #9085K likewise being shuffled to May 29); however, the awards show was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Friday's episode was pulled from the taping schedule since its theme no longer made sense, and the program was ultimately never produced.
  • On Wednesday, a brand new look for Master Key was introduced. The ”P”s on the keys have been replaced with Pricedown dollar signs, and the logo is in the shape of a key, with the remaining letters in each word in small caps.
  • On Thursday, Grocery Game is played for a car.


Week 36 (1,916 – 917xK): June 1-2

  • Only two shows, on Monday and Tuesday.
  • This week was originally planned with five shows, as were another four weeks afterward, which would have led to new episodes airing straight through July 3, ending on #9215K; however, at this point, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the show to shut down production, leaving them unable to tape the season's last 26 episodes (these 23 and the above-mentioned Friday shows for Weeks 31, 32, and 35).
  • Summer reruns start on June 3.


Week 37 (1,921 – 922xK): January 29-30

  • Season finale week; only two shows.
  • Originally scheduled for July 6-7.
  • This week was originally scheduled with a Monday show and a Friday show so as to allow the season to end with an Independence Day episode; once the schedule was pushed up a week after Week 9 was moved to March, this became unnecessary.
  • These episodes were produced and aired drastically out of order and used to fill a gap in the scheduled created when two episodes were shuffled out of Week 19; as such, they were not affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that otherwise ended the season a month early.
  • As this week's episodes were aired drastically out of order, they do not contain the COVID-19 disclaimer in the credits.
  • Summer reruns continued to air as normal through September* 18, the Friday before the intended start date of Season 49. As production had not resumed yet at this point, instead of continuing standard reruns, a series of themed repeats was scheduled
    • September* 21-25 is a "best of" set of celebrity charity episodes from as far back as Season 40 (starring Snoop Dogg, Neil Patrick Harris, Sharon Osborne, Jane Lynch & Jack Black).
    • September* 28-October* 2 is a rebroadcast of Decades Week, the first week of Season 44.
