As networks scramble to fill a fall season devoid of scripted programming, CBS brings something for game show fans to primetime this fall. The Price is Right returns to primetime next month with competition show-themed episodes and three prize-packed Let’s Make a Deal episodes in November.
CBS is one of several networks facing vacancies in their fall lineups amidst the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes as scripted television hits the pause button. Stations like CBS, Warner Bros. Discovery, and others are turning to reality, game shows, and other alternative programming to flesh out a fall schedule that doesn’t resort to playing reruns.
Come on down for The Price is Right at Night premiere on Monday, October 2 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Host Drew Carey is joined by the host and executive producer of Survivor, Jeff Probst. Superfans will have the chance to win big cash prizes competing in Survivor-themed versions of classic The Price is Right games.
Amazing Race host and executive producer Phil Keoghan will join Carey on October 9 as teams of two compete to win “prizes fit for adventure,” including a year’s worth of plane tickets and some exotic trips. Contestations will earn the chance to play a series-themed game for the episode, The Amazing Rat Race.
Starting in November, Let’s Make a Deal Primetime’s host Wayne Brady has three special episodes lined up. Tune in on November 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET for a vacation-centric night of games, deals, and a performance by reggae artist Shaggy. Contestants will compete for luxury trips to the Maldives, Bora Bora, Bali, Ibiza, Hawai’i, Jamaica, and other deluxe getaways.
On November 10, Veteran’s Day Eve, the show will be filmed in front of a live audience filled with active and retired troops, who will have the chance to win some of the biggest cash and prizes in Let’s Make a Deal history. Singer Jordin Sparks will sing a duet with Brady to honor those who have served our country.
Let’s Make a Deal Primetime is going big on November 17 by packing an entire week’s worth of daytime prizes into one night. The $25,000 Mega Money Monday prize is only the beginning. Model Tiffany Coyne will run a Taco Tuesday Truck complete with prize-stuffed tacos, while Worldwide Wednesday will offer vacations to Japan, Thailand, and Singapore. Moving on to Throwback Thursday, prizes will honor Let’s Mae a Deal’s originals Monty Hall and Carol Merrill, followed by Fabulous Car Friday, when one lucky contestant will win a McLaren automobile.
The episodes of both gameshows will broadcast live on CBS, as well as to Paramount+ Premium subscribers. Essential plan members can watch on-demand the day after each episode airs.
