** For sweeps in May 2016, the show did a crossover week with the current ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'': each day, a game from ''Deal'' was played on ''Price'' and vice versa, with their rules modified to add a pricing component to them. These games have included Car Pong (bounce a ping pong ball into the designated cup to win. A Danger Price-styled small prize portion was used to earn additional time), Go For a Spin (guess the correct vertical orientation of the price to remove a [[{{Whammy}} Zonk]] from the wheel), Gold Rush (basically Any Number meets Gas Money: pick the 5 numbers of the price of the car from 7 to collect bailout money, make two mistakes and its over), Accelerator (send a ball into a roulette wheel to collect the letters C-A-R and earn bailout money, but spaces for letters collected turn into Zonk spaces that deduct the money; order grocery items Hole in One style to earn turns), and Smash for Cash (played as Grand Game with one more item than usual, and $20,000 top prize)

*** That's the catch in regards to these games. Apart from the first number, no contestant, the audience or even the host knows what numbers will follow. It's a crap shoot no matter which way it's sliced.

*** Subverted with "I'm an even bigger idiot" bids, wherein the contestant bids $1 '''lower''' than a previous bid. In theory, one would make this bid ''only'' if one believed that the bid was the exact price of the prize.

** At least three people have worn "Two in the Plinko, One in the Stinko" shirts on-air (referencing an "In The Year 2000" sketch Carey did when on ''Series/LateNight with Conan O'Brien'', in which he claims that it would be the new game that would make him its most controversial host of all-time). The first time, it was worn by a contestant who got on-stage, and somehow the censors did not pick up on it. When it happened again on April 20, 2017's episode (as worn by a group in the front row), it was [[http://imgur.com/a/nmCZl censored]].

After starting his 35th year with the show, Barker announced his retirement from TV at the end of October 2006; his final show aired June 15, 2007, and Drew Carey succeeded him on October 15. Carey had already cut his teeth in the game show hosting field for CBS with ''Power of 10''. Fields left the show in 2010, and a third rotation of substitutes ensued until former ''Series/TheWeakestLink'' host George Gray replaced him.

** At the start of taping for Season 37, the Big Wheel was refurbished for HD and adopted a [[SarcasmMode tasteful]] new color scheme with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0of1dG6Ibc green borders, violet walls and dark purple spaces]], seemingly meant to go with the now-discarded Season 36 set.[[note]](the one with the circled diamonds and the violet turntable walls. The Million Dollar Spectaculars and Season 37 proper replaced this with a squares motif and blue walls instead)[[/note]] When Drew first saw it, he did ''not'' like it. In the first episode it was used, he shrugged it off by claiming that it was "accidentally painted purple", and even called it "the big ugly wheel" after someone won $1,000. After five shows with the Purple Wheel, it was taken back in to be re-painted once more, and was briefly replaced for the sixth taping by a StuntDouble from the ''Price Is Right Live!'' casino show (which was essentially a slightly smaller, "bootleg" version of the classic Barker-era Big Wheel). The resulting design went back to black spaces, but now featured orange walls and a matching carpet trimmed like the new doors. All of the affected episodes were moved later into the season (thus making Drew's remark a minor retcon)

** In 2016, the show paid tribute to ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'''s "Spot the Mistakes" episodes by having hidden gags and abnormalities throughout the show, and inviting viewers to document them to enter a contest for a trip to Costa Rica. Among the more noticable ones were staff and cameras getting into shots, Money Game's board having boat symbols despite being played for a car, Cliff Hangers being literally renamed "Yodely Guy" (and the titular Guy facing in the other direction), commercial break bumpers using a different logo every time (cycling through those of other holiday and theme episodes), and the wheel's carpet going awol during the second Showcase Showdown. The "[[RougeAnglesOfSatin Shocases]]" featured ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' footage playing on a laptop whilst promoting ''Price is Right'' episodes on CBS's website, and the second contestant's Showcase included [[spoiler:a year's supply of dandruff shampoo! Actually no, a new car.]]
