Original format

The original format, which first aired on the NBC and ABC television networks in the United States from 1956 until 1965, hosted by Bill Cullen, generally involved four contestants bidding on lavish prizes; after a predetermined number of bids, the player whose bid was closest to the correct value of the prize (without going over) would win it. At the show's end, the player who had won the most (by dollar value) was declared the champion and returned to play again on the next episode.

Revised format

Main article: The Price Is Right (U.S. game show)

An updated version of the format premiered in the United States on the CBS television network on September 4, 1972 [1]. In this new iteration, contestants place one bid on an offered prize; the player who bid closest (but not over) then got to play one of several mini-games (dubbed Pricing Games in most countries) for an additional prize. One contestant, through various elimination formats, could find themselves winning a large showcase of prizes at the show's conclusion. Originally thirty minutes long, the show was expanded to its current hour-long format on November 3, 1975. At this time, a new feature, the Showcase Showdown, was introduced. The three pricing game contestants from each half of the show were asked to spin a large wheel displaying various amounts from five cents up to one dollar. The contestant in each Showdown who came closest to one dollar in not more than two spins, without going over, was brought back to compete in the Showcase at the end of the show.

Prime's episodes were recordings of the East Coast CBS feed with the closed captioning plugs that precede the Showcase Showdowns removed. Episodes pre-empted on this feed were either not shown or substituted with tapes sent from the production company. In some cases the tapes they received were actually rough versions of the episodes that had not yet been edited into the final product. For instance, one episode seen on Prime had Bob Barker say to a contestant, "This is your Showcase!" followed by a brief pause, a fade to black, and then Bob counting down and giving last minute instructions to the contestant before the Showcase proceeded. Also, Christmas week episodes were never aired on Prime due to the delayed rotation.

In the Toronto area, the specials were televised in the past by CFMT-TV and, most recently, CKXT-TV.

Colombia

El Precio es Correcto (The Price is Right), hosted by Gloria Valencia de Castaño and announced by El Capi in the late '80s, aired on Cadena Uno every Tuesday from 1 to 1.30 pm, after midday newscast Noticiero Nacional. It featured four pricing games per episode and no Showcase round.


As in the US version, Contestants' Row was composed of people selected from the audience by an invisible announcer, and the contestants were selected from the Contestants' Row through a bidding game. After the two first games, Contestants' Row was fully renewed for the two last games of the show.


All games were inspired by the US version. The first and the third ones used to change from one week to another but the second and the fourth ones were always the same.


The second game, Grand Game, was called El Mercadito (The Little Supermarket). In it, the contestant had to choose from among six articles the four which were above or below a given price. The constestant started the game with 10 pesos and would multiply them by 10 for each rigfht article that he would choose, up to a highest earning of 100,000 pesos ($50 US). If he failed before attaining this highest price, he would be proposed a triqui-traque (treat): either he kept his winnings, or he could switch it for a surprise prize hidden behind a curtain. This surprise price could be much better (i.e. a VCR or an oriental rug) or much worse (i.e. a broom or a glass of orange juice) than the cash.

The fourth game was a Colombian rendition of Race Game. The contestant had 60 seconds to run across the stage to put the right price to five different articles, and when a price was indeed right, a light went on. Instead of running to and from the prizes, the contestant had to dance across the stage. He was allowed to choose the background music; possible choices included Cumbia, Merengue, Paso Doble, and Joropo.

Portugal

O Preço Certo was first hosted by Carlos Cruz and Nicolau Brayner. It was then changed to "O Preco Certo em Euros" when the escudo was dropped and the Euro was introduced, with Jorge Gabriel and then Fernando Mendes as host, and Miguel Vital as announcer. This version uses Bruce's Price Is Right props and music (but used a synthesized version of the US TPIR theme for its closing music). Interestingly, when the show still used the escudo, it used a set similar to the US show (and the German show) and the same theme tune as the US.


In Autumn 2006 the show relaunched once again and took its inspiration from the new UK version by using a similar set and music. The show also removed "em Euros" from the name making its new title O Preço Certo since the Euro has been in use for seven years.

While the Lozano/Romero era used the same props and music as the UK's Bruce's Price Is Right, the current version with Juan does appear to use a similar set to the current UK show with Joe Pasquale, but does not use the same theme as Joe's show while Portugal's version does use both. Likewise, while the Bob Warman-era UK TPiR and Carlos Cruz-era Portuguese TPiR used the American version's music, the Joaquin Prat-era Spanish TPiR used a completely different theme song.

Three pricing games were played in every half-hour show, with new audience members coming down to take the place of the previous winner.
The top two winners of the day both bid on Showcases, which were worth thousands of dollars, with the day’s leading winner to that point given the option of bidding on the first Showcase described or passing it to their opponent to bid on the second Showcase.
