In the show, contestants compete to win cash and prizes by bidding on the pricing of merchandise. The program has been critically successful and remains a stalwart in the television ratings. It also managed to break away from the quiz show format that has been used in other game shows. Since the current version of The Price is Right premiered, it has also been adapted in several international formats around the world, most notably in the United Kingdom, Australia and Mexico.

, it involved four contestants bidding on expensive products, doing so in the manner of auctions except that Cullen did not act out the role of auctioneer (contestants tried to bid closest to the product's actual retail price without going over that price). After a set round of bids, the contestant whose bid was closest to the correct value of the prizeand had not gone over that valuewon it. At the end of each edition, the contestant who had won the most (by dollar value) was declared the winner and became the returning champion, entitled to play again in the next edition. This version of The Price Is Right ended in 1965.

1972–present

The updated version returned to the air in 1972 as The New Price Is Right; the "new" addendum was later removed. It is still in production in the United States. From September 4, 1972, to June 15, 2007, the show was hosted by Bob Barker

 debuted as the new host.

Format

In this "New" version, four contestants place a single bid on an initial product, in dollars only, as the production company will round off all retail prices to the nearest dollar; the contestant who bids closest to the product's actual retail price without going over wins the item and then gets to play one of several mini-games, which are called Pricing Games in most countries, including the United States, for an additional and more substantial prize or group of prizes. One contestant, through various elimination formats, could find themselves winning a large showcase of prizes at the show's conclusion by predicting the total price of a "showcase."

Originally thirty minutes in length, the show was expanded to its current hour-long format on November 3, 1975. At this time, a new feature, the "Showcase Showdown," was introduced and remains in use. The three contestants who make their way on stage in each half of the show are asked to spin a large wheel, which is labeled from five cents to one dollar in five cent increments. The contestants in each of the two Showdowns who come closest to one dollar in no more than two spins that then have to take the wheel through one complete revolution, without going over, are brought back to compete for the Showcases at the end of the show.

The 1972 American version was hosted by Bob Barker from September 1972 to June 2007; his last new episode aired on June 15, 2007. After a season-long search for a new host, Drew Carey

; it is also the longest running five-days-a-week game show in the world. The Price Is Right is the only game show franchise to be seen nationally in either first-run network or syndication airings in the US in every decade from the 1950s onward. CBS has occasionally aired extra episodes of the show for short periods between the cancellation of one daytime program and the premiere of its successor. On occasion since 1986, special episodes have occasionally aired during prime time hours, most notably to fill in gaps between the Survivor series, and the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike.

The 1972 revised format appeared on Australian television the following year and debuted in the UK in 1984; and has also been adapted around the world. A few staff members from the international versions have made appearances on the U.S. version in the audience, namely hosts (so far, only Alain Leveille from the French-Canadian version, Larry Emdur from the Australian version, and Marco Antonio Regil from the Mexican version [along with other staff members] have appeared on the U.S. show, as well as a model from the Italian version). While he didn't appear on the U.S. show itself, Carlo Boszhard from the Dutch version was greeted by Barker (and music director Stan Blits) at the start of the 200th episode of his version, Cash en Carlo.

The second game, Grand Game, was called El Mercadito (The Little Supermarket). In it, the contestant had to choose from among six articles the four which were above or below a given price. The contestant started the game with 10 pesos and multiplied them by 10 for each right article that he chose, up to a highest earning of COL$100,000 ($50 US). If he failed before attaining this highest price, the contestant was proposed a triqui-traque (treat): either he kept his winnings, or he could switch it for a prize hidden behind a curtain. This surprise price could be much better (e.g., a VCR or an oriental rug) or much worse (e.g., a broom or a glass of orange juice) than the cash.
The fourth game was a Colombian rendition of Race Game. The contestant had 60 seconds to run across the stage to put the right price to five different articles, and when a price was indeed right, a light went on. Instead of running to and from the prizes, the contestant had to dance across the stage. He was allowed to choose the background music; possible choices included cumbia

Jorge Gabriel and then Fernando Mendes
Late '80s / early '90s (first edition)
January 2002–March 2006
September 2006–present
The title was changed to "O Preco Certo em Euros" when the escudo was dropped and the Euro was introduced, with Jorge Gabriel and then Fernando Mendes as host, and Miguel Vital as announcer. This version used Bruce's Price Is Right props and music (but used a synthesized version of the US Price is Right theme for its closing music). When the show still used the escudo, it used a set similar to the US show (and the German show) and the same music cues as the US.
In Autumn 2006 the show re-launched once again and took its inspiration from the new UK version by using a similar set and music. The show also removed "em Euros" from the name making its new title O Preço Certo since the Euro has been in use for seven years. Sound effects from Joe's show don't appear to have been used much (the generic bell was borrowed from Cash en Carlo, for example).

After the top winner selected a range at random, both contestants bid on the Showcase, hoping that their bid were the fell within the selected range of the actual price and the closest without going over.
