Price Is Right for the Holidays
Primetime Christmas Shows Begin Tonight!
From WhatToWatch

With the Christmas holiday quickly approaching, America's favorite daytime gameshow is again returning to primetime in a special titled The Price Is Right at Night Christmas Week.

Beginning on Monday, December 4, at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS, the network is airing a series of special episodes for the holiday season.

While the episodes come just in time for Christmas, each night Drew Carey hosts a particular group of contestants that all have something in common. For example, on December 4, the episode features coworkers in an office holiday party-themed evening.

Below you'll find a schedule of The Price Is Right at Night Christmas Week, again airing on CBS. If you cut the cord to traditional cable/satellite TV, episodes can also be viewed live if you have access to live-TV streaming services such as FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV or have a Paramount Plus with Showtime subscription. All Paramount Plus subscribers can watch episodes the day after they air on the streaming service.

The Price Is Right at Night Christmas Week schedule:
- Monday, December 4, at 8 pm ET/PT — coworkers
- Thursday, December 7, at 8 pm ET/PT — a matchmaker works with single contestants
- Friday, December 8, at 8 pm ET/PT — college students and their parents

For over 50 years, The Price Is Right has been a staple for many TV viewers during the daytime, airing before episodes of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. The show was originally anchored by host Bob Barker until he retired in 2007. Comedian and actor Drew Carey filled Barker's shoes later that year and he's been hosting ever since. Additionally, Carey has taken to primetime a few times to host The Price is Right at Night.

In the demo, SNF scored a 4.6 rating, rising 28% to its best tally since Cowboys/49ers on Oct. 8.


Leading out of 60 Minutes (6.5 mil/0.5), this week's Yellowstone double-pump (3.8 mil.0.2 and 3.3 mil/0.2) on CBS was steady.

ABC's AFV (3.4 mil/0.3) dipped week-to-week, while The Great Christmas Light Fight (1.8 mil/0.2) held steady.

THURSDAY: A Golden Happily Ever After
ABC Wins Night, Slots "Golden Wedding"
From Entertainment Weekly

The Bachelor franchise is back in the wedding special business.

On The Golden Bachelor: After the Final Rose, host Jesse Palmer announced that Gerry Turner and his bride-to-be, Theresa Nist, will get the full TV-wedding treatment with a special broadcast on ABC.

"We are going to get married. We're going to do it as quickly as we can, because at our age, we don't have a lot of time to waste," joked Turner. "So as quickly as we can put together a wedding plan, we're getting married."

Looks like ABC has a little over a month to put together Gerry and Theresa's big day: Palmer announced that The Golden Wedding will air Thursday, Jan. 4, 2024.

The Golden Bachelor lived up to its title with Thursday's season finale, scoring its biggest audience of the season and a nearly three-year high for the ABC unscripted franchise. The two hour-plus finale, which saw 72-year-old widower Gerry Turner propose to Theresa Nist — a wedding special is set for Jan. 4 on ABC — drew 6.07 million viewers, according to fast national ratings from Nielsen (which include out of home viewing). That's a 15 percent improvement on the show's previous same-day season high of 5.27 million viewers for the Nov. 13 episode.

It's also the best performance for any show in the Bachelor universe since the March 15, 2021 finale of Matt James' season of The Bachelor.

The finale also hit a season high among adults 18-49, averaging a 0.8 rating in the key ad-sales demographic. That's the best same-day performance for the franchise since the season 19 finale of The Bachelorette in September 2022.

Leading out of that, Bachelor in Paradise (2.2 mil/0.3) was steady in audience but dipped in the demo.


NBC's Transplant (1.4 mil/0.1) hit and tied season lows.

CBS' Ghosts UK (2.2 mil/0.2 and 2 mil/0.2) was steady in the demo but down sharply in viewers from its first Stateside double-pump.

The CW's Son of a Critch (320K) was steady in audience, while Children Ruin Everything (190K) dropped some eyeballs.

Fox's Pending adjustment due to sports preemptions in Dallas and Seattle, Hell's Kitchen (3.1 mil/0.5) and LEGO Masters (1.9 mil/0.4) are both currently up sharply.

University Challenge Christmas Episode Pulled
Advocates, Contestants Allege Ableism
From Deadline

The BBC has pulled a University Challenge Christmas special episode from its festive schedule following complaints by two disabled contestants.

According to BBC News, one blind and one neurodivergent contestant took part in the episode – which features teams of distinguished alumni who compete on behalf of their former universities – but it won't air following grievances over a lack of audio description and subtitles. The contestants have not been named.

One of the contestants was quoted by BBC News saying the experience was "distressing" and the other "overwhelming and overstimulating." The first said they were told one minute before the show that there would be no audio description and "your captain will instead have to explain everything," according to the BBC News article, while the second claimed a request for subtitles made in advance was turned down.

The decision was made today to pull the episode of the iconic BBC quiz, which is hosted by Amol Rajan. The rest of the spin-off series will go ahead as planned.

A BBC spokesperson said: "We can confirm that an episode in the upcoming series of Alumni University Challenge will not be broadcast because two of the contestants felt their access requirements were not sufficiently met by the production.

"We are working closely with producers to improve cross industry access on our programmes to ensure a consistent approach is implemented. We would like to apologise to the individuals and teams concerned, and they have been written to personally by the producers."

ITV Studios-backed Lifted Entertainment, which produces University Challenge, confirmed that the contestants "requested that certain adjustments be made in order for them to be able to fully participate" during the pre-filming briefing.

"However, following the recording, we were made aware that the adjustments made fell short of their requirements. We have spoken to the individuals involved and offered our sincere apologies," added Lifted. "Having listened very carefully to their descriptions of their experiences, we agreed with the BBC that the fairest course of action was not to screen this particular edition."

Both the BBC and Lifted Entertainment released statements of apology. A BBC spokesman said: "We are working closely with producers to improve cross-industry access on our programmes to ensure a consistent approach is implemented. We would like to apologise to the individuals and teams concerned, and they have been written to personally by the producers."

In a statement, the National Federation of the Blind of the UK called for the whole series to be scrapped and re-recorded:

"Given that the two contestants were expecting to compete as equals thinking that their access requirements were being met, it must have been a traumatic experience to go through during the filming. "It is essential that the whole series is withdrawn and started again. Who wants to win when you know that your opponents have been discriminated and treated unfairly in this way."

Supreme Court Justice Read for "Jeopardy!"
From the New York Times

Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman on the United States Supreme Court, a rancher's daughter who wielded great power over American law from her seat at the center of the court's ideological spectrum, died on Friday in Phoenix. She was 93.

The Supreme Court announced her death in a statement, saying the cause was complications of dementia.

She grew up in Arizona and lived there most of her life.

In a public letter she released in October 2018, when she was 88, the former justice, who had not been seen in public for some time, announced that she had been diagnosed with the beginning stages of dementia, "probably Alzheimer's disease," and consequently was withdrawing from public life.

Although William H. Rehnquist, her Stanford Law School classmate, served as chief justice during much of her tenure, the Supreme Court during that crucial period was often called the O'Connor court, and Justice O'Connor was referred to, accurately, as the most powerful woman in America.

Very little could happen without Justice O'Connor's support when it came to the polarizing issues on the court's docket, and the law regarding affirmative action, abortion, voting rights, religion, federalism, sex discrimination and other hot-button subjects was basically what Sandra Day O'Connor thought it should be.

That the middle ground she looked for tended to be the public's preferred place as well was no coincidence, given the close attention Justice O'Connor paid to current events and the public mood. "Rare indeed is the legal victory — in court or legislature — that is not a careful byproduct of an emerging social consensus," she wrote in "The Majesty of the Law: Reflections of a Supreme Court Justice," a collection of her essays published in 2003.

Justice O'Connor read for a special category on "Jeopardy!" about her legacy.

2024: ABC
Jeopardy! Moves as "Only Murders" Makes Linear TV Debut
From the Hollywood Reporter

ABC is taking up temporary residence at The Arconia.

The network will air the first season of Hulu's critically adored comedy Only Murders in the Building in January. The season will run in two-hour blocks on Tuesday nights over three weeks starting Jan. 2, with a one-hour slot for the season finale on Jan. 23.

ABC will also move Celebrity Jeopardy! to Tuesday nights for its final episodes of the season, starting with a semifinal on Jan. 2. The game show will air at 8 p.m., followed by Only Murders at 9 p.m. The two-hour blocks on Jan. 2, 9 and 16 will contain three episodes each.

The moves will help ABC fill its schedule ahead of the return of its homegrown scripted series in February. Will Trent, The Rookie and The Good Doctor are set to occupy Tuesdays starting Feb. 20, but the network hadn't previously announced any programming for the first few weeks of 2024. (What will air in the three weeks after Celebrity Jeopardy! and Only Murders finish is still to be determined.)

ABC has set return dates for its scripted series, joining CBS in laying out a post-strikes lineup that will see the likes of Abbott Elementary, Grey's Anatomy and new addition 911 join the schedule in early 2024.

The broadcast network will also have a handful of unscripted staples — American Idol, The Bachelor and Judge Steve Harvey — and a 20/20-branded true-crime series from ABC News to round out its midseason slate.

With most shows not starting production until after Thanksgiving, the episode counts for scripted series will be smaller than in a typical year — 10 to 13 episodes, as opposed to between 16 and 22.

ABC's Wednesday comedy block of The Conners, Not Dead Yet and Abbott Elementary will be the first scripted shows to return to the network's air; with all three, along with Judge Steve Harvey, are set to premiere Feb. 7, with Abbott getting an hourlong debut.

ABC has only three half-hour comedies on its roster at the moment and will announce later how it plans to fill the 9:30 p.m. Wednesday spot. The network will stack dramas on Tuesday and Thursday nights.

Second-year show Will Trent will lead off Tuesdays starting Feb. 20, followed by The Rookie and The Good Doctor. The Thursday lineup will debut March 14, with 911 — which is moving from Fox — leading into Grey's Anatomy and Station 19.

The Bachelor will return to its usual Monday spot Jan. 22, with the true-crime series following at 10 p.m. American Idol opens its season Feb. 18, paired with ABC News' What Would You Do? on Sunday nights. Fridays remain the same with Shark Tank and 20/20.

ABC's post-strike schedule with launch dates...

"Squid Game: The Challenge" Hits #1
Mother Series Also Breaks Top 10
From Collider

Years after its immense success with American audiences, Squid Game is demonstrating its potential as franchise material. Squid Game: The Challenge, a reality game show following the format of the acclaimed Korean series, is gaining traction and proving to be a hit among viewers. Season 1 of the reality competition debuted atop the English TV List with 20.1M views. The original series equally benefited from this new entry as the scripted version, which remains Netflix's most popular non-English TV series of all time, made it to the non-English list at number 6 with 1.6M views.

Two contestants of the new Netflix series Squid Game: The Challenge are threatening legal action over alleged injuries they said they suffered while filming, including hypothermia.

Express Solicitors, a law firm based in the U.K., said no lawsuit has been filed yet, but the firm has begun legal action against the show's production company, Studio Lambert.

The health concerns were mainly centered around the first challenge of the game show, "Red Light, Green Light," where contestants race to the finish line without being detected by a motion-spotting robot. It requires players to run quickly when the giant robot doll is not looking and then abruptly stop and stand still when the robot faces toward them.

David Slade, an accident specialist with Express Solicitors, said at least two contestants felt "unwell" after standing or crouching "motionless for hours in cold temperatures," which led to one contestant suffering from hypothermia. There was also a concern about the iconic green uniform, which one contestant alleged did not proper protect her from the chilly conditions, Slade added.

"From what we've been told they pushed the boundaries of safety in the name of entertainment," he said in a statement. "Production companies need to ensure that health and safety standards on their shows don't leave people at risk of harm."

The first round of competition took place at Cardington Studios in Bedford, England. Netflix's fan-focused website, Tudum, also reported that temperatures were "very cold" on set, adding that staff distributed hand warmers and placed heaters in tented areas for contestants to warm-up during breaks.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the show said, "We take the welfare of our contestants extremely seriously."

"We care deeply about the health and safety of our cast and crew, and invested in all the appropriate safety procedures. While it was very cold on set – and participants were prepared for that – any claims of serious injury are untrue," Netflix said in a January statement to CNN.

Squid Game: The Challenge has piqued the interest of quite a few spectators. The spinoff of the popular Netflix show, which allowed contestants to immerse themselves in the world of the Korean hit, debuted on November 22. In its first five days of availability, the premiere episode drew an audience of about 1.1M U.S. households, according to Samba TV.

Your Time in VR Starts... Now.
"Taskmaster" Game Released on Meta Quest
From Tech Radar

Hit UK comedy game show Taskmaster is getting a VR spin-off game for Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest 3, and it's set to launch in 2024.

Published by Scallywag Arcade, a Draw & Code studio, and made in partnership with Avalon (the production company behind the TV series), Taskmaster VR gives players the chance to test themselves against the show's many challenges through their virtual reality headset.

Stepping into the shoes of a contestant, players will experience the creativity of the show alongside Meta's virtual reality technology and be let loose in the Taskmaster House with the goal to claim the golden head trophy and call themselves Taskmaster Champion. You can take a look at the trailer below.

"The world of Taskmaster is perfect for VR" said Niall Taylor, head of games at Scallywag Arcade, teasing an "immersive" experience which combines "the hilarity of the show with the freedom of virtual reality."

The Taskmaster himself, Greg Davies, said: "The team have done an incredible job and the game is a really exciting addition to the Taskmaster world. On a personal note, the creation of a virtual reality Taskmaster takes me ever closer to my ultimate goal of working without even leaving my sofa."

Scallywag says that Taskmaster VR will offer fans and gamers alike an "immersive opportunity" to engage with the show's features and its stars in a new way, with Davies and Alex Horne, the show's creator and the Taskmaster's assistant, along for the fully voice acted experience.

"Genuinely, this is extraordinary, brilliant and very fun," said Horne. "Also, I've always wanted to be a contestant on Taskmaster so this is great for me as a VR user, except that I will also have my virtual self watching my attempts and undermining my confidence so I may well regret the whole venture after I've had a go."

Fremantle has picked up the rights to adapt South Korean reality gameshow Battle in the Box, produced by Seoul-based Something Special, in multiple European territories.

Fremantle has optioned the format in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Portugal.

The show is a comedy entertainment and reality hybrid, where two celebrity teams enter an empty box divided by a movable wall, armed only with a toothbrush. They only have each other for company as cameras watch their every move and can earn space and luxuries by conquering physical and mental challenges.

The new multi-territory deal for Battle in the Box follows a previously announced co-development deal for music gameshow and play-a-long format The Beatbox, between Something Special, Fremantle-owned Blue Circle and Naked, which aired on RTL4 in the Netherlands this year.

Guy Fieri: The $100 Million Dollar Man
"Grocery Games" Reups with Food Network
From Variety

Guy Fieri has signed a new three-year deal with Food Network, which sources tell Variety is valued at more than $100 million.

This fresh pact means that Fieri retains his title as the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned cable channel's highest-paid talent and bests his most recent multiyear deal, which closed in 2021 for $80 million.

Food Network and Warner Bros. Discovery declined to comment on the financial figures.

Under the new agreement, which will take Fieri to the 20-year mark with Food Network, the Mayor of Flavortown will continue to produce more of his Emmy-nominated "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," as well as more episodes of "Guy's Grocery Games" and "Tournament of Champions." Fieri will also keep developing and producing projects with Food Network through his Knuckle Sandwich production banner. "

Recognized everywhere he goes, there is only one Guy Fieri," Warner Bros. Discovery head of food content Betsy Ayala said. "Guy's love of food, restaurants, and the chefs behind the dishes, combined with his extraordinary passion for crafting series with stories that resonate make extending this partnership a clear choice in our mission to deliver to viewers more of what they love."
