6/16/14 Quick News & Notes

-Casey Kasem officially passed away yesterday at 82 after having a progressive dementia & at one point had been missing for a while. The former "100%" host & "Scooby-Doo" Shaggy voice was born as Kemal Amin Kasem & became a DJ while he was w/ the Army.
-On the unaired Lottery Experience Games for "Wheel" (which were shot in Apr. '12 near the end of the S29 tapings), the Prize Wedge was $5K, there was an on-screen timer on the bottom-middle part of the screen (it showed tenths of sec. instead of the one we now have) during the BR & winning the BR car of a Chevrolet Camaro Conv. 2SS yielded a $15K bonus.
-As of this wk., "Webheads" moves to weeknights (excluding Fri., of course) at 7:30 PM.
-I believe "Price" didn't do their Father's Day or Wedding Shower eps. this season.

I'm taking it that you're not recapping today's Price is Right as it was a winless show. I don't know what infuriated me more: watching today's Price is Right or watching today's Deal or No Deal (UK version) In the latter the player was once again practically forced to the end to win £1 as that Banker can't bother to make decent offers (i.e. he offered £2,500 with the £250,000 and 4 low amounts left yesterday).

Si, senor. My rating for "Price" today was a 3 (1 if it was a DOB).

Disappointing episode of Price is Right for me. My rating today: 2 because of an 0 for 6 episode and a low showcase being won (Worst rating by me)
