Price is Right Starts Season 52 With New Stage, New Studio
After 51 years, The Price Is Right has left the Bob Barker Studio 33 at Television City in California, and has begun their new season 52 in a new studio located in Glendale on the Northeast Side of Los Angeles.
"I'll miss, like, the sense of history," Drew Carey told CBS News. “When I come in here it's just always felt like a nice, comfortable shoe … The fact that I'm here and I'm the last one to host this 'Price is Right' here, and they're trusting me to move it along and start the whole stage again, I feel pretty good about that, a pretty good honor.”
Along with the new studio came a new stage, as well as a few other new features.
First thing to notice aside from the stage being different, is that the Contestant Row section is no longer lower than the stage, it's at the same level.
Another thing was that there are now male models in the showcase.
It's brought a lot of discussion online, and the Price is Right puritans are not happy about any of the changes. Enough negativity was posted, that a post was made to the unofficial fan group on Facebook, letting fans know to give the new studio a fair chance.
The Price is Right airs weekdays at 10am on CBS.
