* ReplacementScrappy: Many die-hard fans hated Bob Hilton as host so much so that Monty, who was then retired, came back for what was ''intended'' to be a temporary period. Monty's plan was to do on-air auditions, then pick one of the candidates to take over the show permanently. Didn't work - NBC opted to just can the show in January '91 and bring ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' back to the lineup.

This has even carried over to legitimate game shows as well, as the doors on ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' were referred to as such in the prize descriptions for Super Ball. * NewerThanTheyThink: The 1972-present revival of ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' has borrowed many elements from ''Let's Make a Deal'', including contestants being pulled up and interacting directly with the host, and the "pricing games" on the former being along the same lines as the "deals" on the latter. * ReplacementScrappy: Many die-hard fans hated Bob Hilton as host so much so that Monty, who was then retired, was brought back as a last-ditch effort to increase ratings on that version.

** The Super Deal, a Bonus-BonusRound used for the 1975-76 season where the contestant could risk the Big Deal for a 1-in-3 chance of winning the Big Deal ''and'' $20,000 cash. Although a few people ''did'' win the big money, the Super Deal was removed by the final season (1976-77).

** The current version has never used games where pricing products was a key factor, which was a staple of every previous version. Although it's most likely because ''Deal'' shares the schedule with ''The Price Is Right'', the pricing games have been replaced by such out-of-place things as spelling, latitude/longitude, and ''trivia''; you know, there's a ''reason'' why the "guess the car part" deal from the '63 pilot didn't stick around... *** Despite this, grocery products ''do'' show up, and that's where it gets worse. If they show up, expect Wayne to ask the player something like "Which of these was introduced to the mass market first?" No, seriously. * TheyJustDidntCare: The ''Gameshow Marathon'' episode in 2006 cut out Kathy Najimy's deal before airing.

Picking contestants and the audience's shouting has been with Price since the beginning. See that page entry.
* NewerThanTheyThink: The 1972-present revival of ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' has borrowed many elements from ''Let's Make a Deal'', most notably picking contestants directly out of the audience and the audience shouting suggestions to the contestant during a game.

** Alternately, if ''TPIR'' is HTML, then ''LMAD'' is XML; the latter is an "improvised" version of the former, but ''Deal'' had run for almost nine years before ''Price'' returned in 1972, so which show is which on drugs?!

* SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome: Anybody who won the Super Deal in either era. ** During the week that Monty guest-hosted, a couple played a game with two Zonk cards. They got a Zonk on their first pick, technically losing, but Monty let the couple pick one more card for some consolation money...oh, and he'd give them the ''car'' if they found the other Zonk card. To his and Wayne's utter astonishment, ''they found the other Zonk card''. [[note]](If this sounds familiar, it should it's an update of the Cash Register Game used in the 1963-77 and 1984-86 eras, including the alternate way of winning the car.)[[/note]]
