YMMV: Let's Make a Deal
Growing the Beard: The show was initially a very serious affair until people started showing up carrying signs, and later wearing silly hats, on a whim. Soon, everyone started showing up in crazy costumes and acting more excited.
In the Wayne Brady revival, things seem to be turning the other way — the costumes seem to be less and less gaudy, but the excitement remains.
Newer Than They Think: The 1972-present revival of The Price Is Right 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.
Replacement Scrappy: 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. Didn't work.
The less said about Billy Bush, the better. Or Ricki Lake.
Wayne Brady has his detractors as well, mostly because he lacks the authoritarian hosting style of Hall and as a result comes off as not knowing where anything is.
The Super Deal, a Bonus-Bonus Round 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 knocked the Big Deal from two players to one, which was derided from all corners. Some have suggested it was done for budgetary reasons, but it really just kills a lot of the excitement factor.
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 Although it's most likely because Deal shares the schedule with The Price Is Right, the pricing games have been replaced by such out-of-place things as spelling, latitude/longitude, and trivia; you know, there's a reason why the "guess the car part" deal from the '63 pilot didn't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.
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 (and judging by Goodson's pitch film, was directly inspired by LMAD), so which show is which on drugs?!
What an Idiot: Any player that tries to throw the balls slowly and carefully in "Car Pong", not realizing that they're under a strict time limit to win something.
