The Price Is Right To Tape First-Ever Kids Show

The Price is Right has been on TV continuously for 40 years, and of course during that time it has seen every kind of contestant imaginable. Well, that is, with the very glaring exception of one group of people - kids.

For the first time ever, The Price is Right will be opening its audition process exclusively to wannabe contestants under the age of 18. In fact, producers are going even younger than that. They are looking for an episode where every contestant is between the ages of eight and 14.

The Price is Right toyed with this idea last year, when it ran an episode in which teenagers played for the chance to win a new car. Their parents were also on the show, however, so it didn't necessarily just revolve around the kids.

Various laws regarding game shows, contests, and all that kind of stuff place heavy restrictions on what children are allowed to win. One such restriction is that they are not eligible to win cold, hard cash.

So it will be interesting to see how the money-centric parts of the show are presented. Presumably, if there are any "cash" prizes they will be in the form of a savings bond or college scholarship or some such.

Kids are also technically not allowed to win cars, and given the age range involved here, it would be safe to bet that the car pricing games will either be drastically altered to offer alternate prizes, or just not played at all.

Whatever the logistics will end up being, it should be interesting to watch. It's hard to come up with a concept that hasn't been done in 40 years, but this is actually one of them.
