TPiRecap: 16 March 2015 (Spring Break Special)

First, a note of housekeeping: This will be the only first-run show this week, due to CBS coverage of the NCAA mens' basketball tournament pre-empting Price on the West Coast; the East Coast feed will instead be showing reruns for the rest of the week. Please, no arguments, you knew this was going to happen (since it does every year around this time) and we all know how big "March Madness" is. At least we can commiserate with Y&R and B&B fans, who are also getting the shaft this week due to hoops.

Stat-wise, since this is the only episode of the week, this recap will have to do for a "stats post" for the week. The next time you see the full numbers will be next Friday (27 March), and it will use last week's numbers as the comparison point, though what you see here will be added to it.

And so...

Spring Break Special

And since Price is about to go on its own "spring break," why not make it the theme for today? An audience full of college kids and plenty of appropriate prizes... sounds like a plan. Note that the "runway" from Fashion Week is back today...

1 Right Price: $6510
  1. Trip to Las Vegas, NV (5n, daily breakfast; RR)
  2. Trip to Cancún, México (5n, Beach Palace; MA)

I've got to think $6,510 is more likely to send you to México than Vegas... which means I smell a rat. But I'm going with my first instinct. Cancún, with or without the accent on the U.

We've also got DJ Steve playing a club-remix version of the theme today—forgot to mention that. ^^;

I thought that was a slam-dunk too; those chips couldn't have been more than $3.99, to my way of thinking. >_<
