"The Price Is Right" has been around in its current run since 1972. When that 40-year run has had just two hosts and very few changes in format, it's time to shake things up. And Thursday's episode attempts to do just that by adding kids.
Everybody likes kids, right?
The first-ever "Price Is Right" kids episode, led by current host Drew Carey, aims to introduce the time-tested game show format to a new generation of possible "Showcase Showdown" dreamers.
That doesn't mean that the adults are completely off the show, of course. Since it's the parents who actually have to buy the stuff kids' want, they would know better than anyone what stuff costs. The kids are playing alongside their parents on Contestants' Row and in the many mini games, such as Let 'Em Roll, Secret X and Plinko.
And the prizes are more kid-friendly. So don't expect a lifetime supply of Turtle Wax. Think: video games, toys and a backyard trampoline.
