Behind-the-Scenes of One of America’s Favorite Game Shows: ‘The Price Is Right’

The Longest Running Game Show in TV History

The first episode of The Price is Right aired in 1956. The show started airing on NBC between 1956 and 1965 and later moved to ABC. The original show taped more than 11,000 episodes, which beats our other favorites, Wheel of Fortune and even Jeopardy. And the show is still on the air!



That means that The Price is Right is the longest-running game show in TV history. There is an endless flow of contestants, so the series continues to run strong up to today, with really no sign that it will change anytime soon.

Other than the things we see on our screens when watching ‘The Price is Right’, there are also tons of interesting scenes that never aired…
