Mmhmm, I knew That's Too Much! was going to be played today. Given the fact that it's played every single week, and since it wasn't played Monday through Thursday this week, I am not shocked at all that it would be played today.
But on the upside, at least it was won for a change.
It's not every day you see 2 car games won in a single day.
I just wish the shuttle landing didn't interrupt the first 35 minutes or so on WCBS!
And is it just me, or has Hole In One (Or Two) been played more this season so far than in Season 39 or Season 38? If I recall, Spelling Bee normally gets played 6 times per season nowadays (5 playings so far this season, and will likely have one more playing before we close the books on Season 40). I think Hole In One (Or Two) was played 6 times during season 39, but is this latest playing the 7th playing during Season 40? The 8th?
And how many times was Spelling Bee played during Season 37?
I'll try and churn out some recaps next week -- but with finals on my doorstep, no guarantees.
I'll be around.
Why were there a number of pricing games on a lengthy hiatus during Season 37? Economical reasons?
I can fully understand economical reasons being the case for 3 Strikes, Golden Road and Triple Play - the latter being played only once during Season 37, and not seen again until a year later.
9 playings in a season for Spelling Bee seems to be a later Barker-era norm.
