BROOKLYN, NEW YORK -- For the last couple of weeks I have been losing coins due to lost of internet connection or I freeze when I'm in contestant row. I had my computer checked out and it was fine. It only happens when I play this game. None of my other game gives me this problem.

I will lose internet connect or it will freeze when I am on the contestant row when the last bidder is ready to bid. It freezes only on this, tell me why. Is it because I'm at at high level? What is the problem? People on the chat says that we don't bid fast enough or we are ready to win, what is the problem?

You owe me a lot a lot of coins. You charge my credit card really easy and make me lose them really easy. Answer me what's the problem? I like playing this and it relaxes me, but it's not worth losing the purchase of the coins.

This is for Facebook game right? Try to contact the app and maybe they can help you get your coins. I haven't played that game in a while because it has been severely laggy lately. If you made a purchase for these coins, they will help you out more than those who lost free coins. Go to the app, find a way to contact who u need to contact...or dispute your credit card.

First of all the game claims to be a beta. Which means it has bugs and the public is being used to work them out before it is declared a complete game. In my opinion it is irresponsible of the company that has produced this game to allow real money to be spent on it in any way. That being said if you look right below the game itself there is a "Help" link that takes you to the companie's FB page. In case you are having trouble finding it here is a link.

I agree with Tezrien. Why are they making people use real money on a game being beta tested with obvious bugs?
Cwazychicken on 2012-03-07:
This game has been out for at least a year, should not be in beta any more...I quit playing it because it was so slow.

Misleading Invitation For Price Is Right Tickets
Posted by on
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- Price is Right? Hmmm..

Two of my family members and I received tickets last week for today’s 1PM show (March 10). We all took the day off with no pay , drove the two hours to attend the show.

My aunt is handicapped and she did not want to use her wheel chair for fear she would loose her chance to be on the price is right. She was in so much pain standing and waiting, but she assured us we would get on because we were so early.

All three of us arrived around 6:15 AM. for the 1PM show. The numbers on our tickets were under 290 and I understand around 300 seats available for each show, told to us by one of the coordinators giving instructions to the audience hopefuls.

WE had a small group of people, around 50 in front of us waiting already when we arrived. We were all excited until we realized that because we were not in a large group with matching t-shirts we were told to stand by the red rail, give up our seat and we were then placed on standby. The large groups had the priority even though they showed up a few hours later than us. It appeared that price is right over books more than 100 and maybe more for both shows today. I wondered if the other people got their tickets from another web site. It was upsetting to stand for a long period of time only to have others just show up and have priority, because they belonged to a large group. There were also individuals joining groups that already existed that they had just met in line just to get on the show, If the price is right wants large groups only, they should be more specific when advertising on their web site, instead of misleading people, hopefully this blog will shed light on the ones who want a chance on the show so you won't go through the disappointment and physical pain my family and many others did today.

Now you know how to be sure to get on, come late with a large crowd and wear matching shirts,, 25 people or more. We witnessed over 100 people in line that left disappointed and disgusted. Additionally, the web site says admission is to be 18 and over and a couple seated in line had a baby, also, the announcer asks if anyone in the crowd did not have two forms of ID or a SS card and about a third raised their hands, however the announcer told that same group that it was OK,everyone has thirty days, to obtain it. The web page is clear, I thought.

Good luck to you and yours

I would never waste my time standing in line to be on a game show--that's just my opinion--I think you are simply asking for disappointment and of course the producers are going to give preferential treatment to large groups...anything for better ratings and a "more exciting croud."
I guess the "Price was wrong."
Principissa on 2008-03-11:
Bigger groups equal bigger ratings. Is it fair, no, absolutely not. It's all about whose watching at home, not who is watching from the audience.
Sparticus on 2008-03-11:
Often getting on those game shows is like going through an interview to be on TV... They only want folks who they think fit their profile.

Misleading folks into thinking they will have a seat when they get there, and then bumping them is just plain mean. Sorry you had to go through all that... I only hope they realize it and give you real tickets to the show... Did you try calling them to complain?
tnchuck100 on 2008-03-11:
When it come to ticketing they appear to run the same manual that the airlines use.

I would never wait in long that long for anything, but maybe a million dollars.
Granny on 2013-08-20:
I have a cousin who made it on the show in 2010. He was excited. He also walked up to a group to get in. I would never never wait longer than 1 hour to proceed more than 2 feet. I recently read that there are people who win but can not pay taxes before they leave they have to return home without what they won. This is a no win win situtation

There are no lyrics provided with the Mitch MillerCDs.

Rating: 2/51
NY, NEW YORK -- I bought 3 sing along with Mitch CDs. The Sony CD included lyrics for the sing along songs, which one would expect for such a product. The Columbia recordings, unfortunately, neglected this essential requirement for a sing along format.

I am curious if the omission was due to financial considerations or merely corporate rudeness.

Because Mitch Miller isn't selling as well today, as, let's say, 50 or so years ago when "Sing Along With Mitch" was a hit TV show in a pre-cable era with only 3 or 4 channel choices, I wonder if it could be a budget-cutting move on Columbia/Sony BMG's part. Still, even on the CD versions, if lyric sheets are mentioned in the packaging, they should be included, even if it's part of the CD booklet. I wasn't aware that the "Sing Along With Mitch" albums, save for the Christmas ones, were even still in print. I have a 1970's reissue of his "Holiday Sing Along With Mitch" LP, which came in a standard (instead of a book-like) sleeve, with no lyric sheets. Pretty much all of Mitch Miller's LP's are common thrift shop items as well-every thrift shop seems to have at least a few of his albums. I guess, even 50 years later, people still love to "Sing Along With Mitch".

My opinion of the TV show the price is right.
Posted by on
Watching Drew Carey (MR. Mumbles) on PIR has helped me understand that this stupid show, with it’s crazy acting folks could only be headed by a person that takes life and the show not serious at all. A person who would be logical, and very professional would be as out of place on this silly show as having a monkey do the 5PM new on CBS. So Drew just do your stuff and keep acting like just another silly person. The people who run the show have it going the way they want. But I got to tell you the way they jump up an down and act so un-human…the way they look out into the audience for the correct choice to make about the prizes makes me wonder why people can’t make the choice on their own. If you ever looked out into the audience for an answer, they are pointing and waving, and doing things nobody could understand what they mean anyway. Dumbed up screaming idiots for sure. But I watch it, just to see how silly and fun loving our society has gone.

Anonymous on 2010-08-18:
I was disappointed when I found out that the audience members are pre-informed of their selection, and to act surprised when their names are called. I found this out during a recent trip to California for vacation, and my wife who loves the show, wanted to audition for it. I no longer watch it anymore.

I used to like when Bob Barker would sink a putt from the furthest line back on that one miniature golf game.
Tonkey on 2010-08-18:
They don't actually tell anyone ahead of time if they are going to get "called down". I live in LA and have been to the taping of the PIR 4 times, and the way it works is that when you are making your way into the studio, the producers interview everyone for about 10 seconds, and they pick from there. No one in the audience knows until they say your name. I can verify that because the second time I went my best friend got "called down". Of course, he didn't get up on stage because the girl that put her bid in after him every time always did one dollar more than him. Easy way out I guess
goduke on 2010-08-18:
I'm not understanding why it's not o.k. to be goofy and stupid on a game show. Every moment of life doesn't have to be serious and about getting work done. Sometimes it's nice just to have some fun.

Oh, and the Price is Right on the Wii just rocks.
momsey on 2010-08-18:
This has been my favorite show since I was a little kid, and I still love it to this day. If what J4A says is true, that really stinks.

I don't understand why a game show should be taking anything seriously or be professional about anything. This is a great show, it makes me think of days home sick when I was a kid. All good stuff. Drew has made changes, and they're mostly for the better. He's made it a bit sillier, but more fun at the same time.

I work in a nursing home, and when I walk down the hallway between 11 and noon, inevitably someone has it on in their room and I want nothing more than to sit down with them and watch it!

THE PRICE IS RIGHT Drew Carey
Posted by on
My wife and I are both retired and enjoy watching game shows on television. We enjoyed watching THE PRICE IS RIGHT on CBS until Mr. Carey was selected as game show host. Mr. Carey does not look or act the part he was given. We especially dislike the way he degrades and jokes about some of the products/services they use on the show. If there were another game show during the same time period we would not be watching THE PRICE IS RIGHT. We watched THE PRICE IS RIGHT for many years and enjoyed it very much until Mr. Carey became the host. We believe CBS should consider replacing Mr. Carey. It was a poor selection in our opinion.

His demeanor seems forced, uncomfortable, as though he is completely out of his element. I had hoped it would change after time. Nope, I saw it a few weeks ago during a snow day. he still sucks.

Bob Barker was a natural. He always seemed to have a genuine interest in the contestants even after doing the show for so many years. I never did think Drew Carey was a good choice, and sometimes I wonder if anyone could ever fill Bob Barker's shoes.

MissMae on 2010-02-16:
I couldn't agree more ginger/rogers. IMO, Drew Carey hasn't been good in anything he's done. He's not funny. He's not clever. He doesn't have much of a personality...all negatives when hosting a game show. Personally, I figured he'd be canned after the first few PIR episodes.

Exactly. For the auditions, you play the game with another family, just like the show (minus the host) and my mom said the other team was overly excited and were practically doing back flips. They made it, my family didn't. And my family is not quiet or reserved either.

How long did BB host TPIR? 30 years? More? People were used to seeing him and his way of doing it. DC does it differently. It's not wrong, it's just different. To be honest, I don't think there will ever be another person like BB or a Pat Sajak and host the same show for decades. DC will probably only be here a relatively short time, imho.

Stay Away from CBS Fantasy Football Manager
Posted by on
I have been using CBS Sportsline Fantasy football manager for the last 5 years. Every year the site gets worse and worse. The cost to manage your league through them is $130 a year, which is quite steep. I would have moved to a new site years ago but many of the players in my league are not computer saavy and like the site since they already know how to use it. Well, the last straw came this year. On more than 50% of the Sundays so far this season, the site has been down for at least an hour before the 1:00 kickoff time (and for quite some time after the games start as well). If any of you play fantasy football, you know what a problem this causes. I have complained to them, but never got a response. The site actually had the nerve to send out a blanket message saying, we are sorry our site has had so many problems. They said they set up a ranking system for their own site and by their own admission, they have given themselves failing grades for more than 50% of the time this season. They then went on to say, please just renew for next year because we promise it will be better next year! What??? You want me to continue to pay for a service which you (by your own admission) do not deliver more than 50% of the time. They did not bother to offer any sort of discount for next year nor did they offer any partial refund for the services they couldn't deliver this year. What an insult! While I understand that there are many users trying to access their teams on Sunday afternoon, they know how many users they have and the fact that they collected $130 from each league, they can afford to buy enough server space and bandwidth to accommodate us all. If anyone out there is considering using CBS to manage their league, please don't you will be very sorry if you do! Just go to their fantasy message board and you will see the hundreds of complaints on there from users not being able to access their teams. It's ridiculous that I pay my hard earned money to a compmnay that can't deliver the service paid for and won't respond to your complaints!

They should be accountable for the service they offered and collected money for. But as with most large corporations, they don't see things from the little man's perspective. They see a graph with 99% uptime and think why are consumers complaining. Thanks for the warning.
Kim on 2012-09-21:
Our fantasy football league has been with CBS Sportsline for over a decade. This year has been brutal. They refuse to provide a tech support phone number and insist we communicate via email with the promise they will address it within 24 hrs. We've paid $175 to have a service that is so inept that our commissioners, and now co commissioners have endured nearly a full time job trying to fix their messes, actually having to do the work manually in anticipation of a CBS screw up. I bumped into someone by accident at a public gathering who is having trouble as commissioner with them in his league too, and he gave me a phone number he somehow got a hold of. 877-266-6474 and press 1 for payments and billing. Roger is the alleged supervisor who they state does not have a phone line in his office! HUH? REALLY? What a scam!. They promised 100% satisfaction money back guarantee, but avoid that issue when put to them. Considering we've been loyal to them for so long, one might think they would at least work with us on trying to keep us for the upcoming years. Don't bother with these clowns. ESPN offers a free service with a direct call number blasted across their page for immediate tech help.
Eric S on 2013-09-07:
The site is still horrible.... On opening game on Thursday 2013 they could barely keep it up and running during the game.

Server timeouts, the Android application crashing constantly.

You email support and all you get back is a auto email generated message back saying to upgrade your device app. Worthless.

To make matters worse they obviously spent all types of money upgrading the functionality of the FF application but have yet to learn that any functionality is not useful if you can't use it.

Lovers... I hate CBS Fantasy Football!

CBS & DAN RATHER APOLOGIZES
Posted by on
SPARKS, NEW HAMPSHIRE -- NEW YORK (Sept. 20) - CBS News apologized Monday for a "mistake in judgment" in its story questioning President Bush's National Guard service, claiming it was misled by the source of documents that several experts have dismissed as fakes.

The network said it would appoint an independent panel to look at its reporting about the memos. The story has mushroomed into a major media scandal, threatening the reputations of CBS News and chief anchor Dan Rather.

It also became an issue in the presidential campaign. The White House said the affair raises questions about the connections between CBS's source, retired Texas National Guard officer Bill Burkett, and Democrat John Kerry's campaign.

Rather joined CBS News President Andrew Heyward in issuing an apology Monday.

I believe Dan Rather knew the memo was a forgery, and use it to smear Bush. Dan Rather should be fired.

I don't believe Dan Rather knew the memo was a forgery, but I don't think he checked the validity of the source very well. I think he saw a juicy news story and put it out on the air before really checking to see that it was true. He should resign or be fired for his gross negligence.

melissa.messner.ni1q on 2004-09-22:
In seriousness though, the ones who are hurt most because of this is the public. Because of what CBS and Dan Rather did (not checking the validity of a report before airing it), any report of that nature will now be highly criticized and possibly not believed by the public. What would happen if a Watergate scandal broke today, would anyone believe it? CBS not only hurt themselves, but other news organizations with their blunder. I don't think it's fair to lay the blame entirely on Dan Rather and say he needs to resign because of this; we aren't in his shoes and don't know if he was pressured by an editor or someone within CBS to air this report. If Dan Rather is asked to resign over this, each and every person who so much as looked at that story within CBS should also be put in the same position.
