The Price is Right Evalution Logo

Season 44 opened up on the week of September 21-25, 2015 (#721xK) with a special week of shows called "Decades Week". Each day, the show celebrated a different decade, from the 70s all the way to the present.

Monday (The 1970s)Edit

  • Monday's show (the season premiere show) opened with Drew wearing a black wig (resembling Bob's hair back then) and making the same inaugural speech Bob made when he opened up the show for the very first time on Monday, September 4, 1972. (#0011D) ("Thank you so much, welcome to The New Price is Right, and let me assure you fans of the old Price is Right that this is your favorite game still based on the pricing of merchandise with wonderful awards for smart shoppers. We call it The New Price is Right because we have some exciting new games that you will enjoy right there at home with our studio audience, and we're going to get that first game going right now. Here's the first item up for bids on The New Price is Right.")
