Tubey Awards: Most Memorable TV Moments
"Mr. Campbell. Who cares?"
Could this moment have been more delectable? It's hard to figure how, with Pete absolutely sputtering in the face of Bertram's pragmatism, and Don almost not daring to believe that the secret he went to such lengths to protect could be treated with such blithe disregard. The first season was a masterpiece, and many storylines were paid off in wonderful and unexpected ways, but for me, no moment tasted quite as sweet as this. -- Couch Baron
Come on Down!
The Price Is Right, October 15, 2007
The big plywood doors got a new paint job, the logo changed a little bit, but the biggest change at The Price is Right last season was Drew Carey coming through the doors instead of Bob Barker. And... it wasn't that bad.
It took him a few weeks to warm up, but once he got the hang of what he was doing, he put his own stamp on the venerable game show - for Bob, the show was a circus and he was the ringmaster - for Drew, the show is a party and he's the host. Two different approaches, absolutely - but both of them have worked out pretty well.
Perhaps the most defining moment for when the show truly crossed over into "Drew-dom" occurred in mid-2008, when a stoner college student wormed his way into Contestant's Row. His bids: $420 (ha ha), $777 (ha ha), $1,869 (ha ha), and... $2,000,000. Bob would have proclaimed it a "historic event", or at least told him to re-bid. Drew just goes "OK, fine, whatever." In his mind, of course, he's thinking, "You dumbass - you could have gotten a car or a vacation, but instead, you get a birdbath. Enjoy it, asswipe." Nicely done. -- TWoP Gadget
