"The show has the most enthusiastic and fun audience that one could ever ask for. They truly were and are the heart and soul of the show. I had the pleasure of working with a dedicated and talented cast and crew for 35 great years. Particularly close to my heart was the ability our vast popularity gave me to remind our entire audience daily about the importance of spaying and neutering your pets. It was an incredibly memorable ride! Once again, congratulations to "The Price is Right" on 50 historic years!! Here's to 50 more!!"

In the game, contestants' pricing skills will be tested on actual items that appeared on the show during the early years of its run on CBS. Drew Carey was named the host of the show in July of 2007. "Hosting 'The Price Is Right' has been a dream job for me," said Drew Carey, current host of THE PRICE IS RIGHT. "And I can't even call it a job with a straight face because I get such joy out of it. Imagine spending every workday surrounded by happy, positive strangers. It's been amazing. I really never thought my safe space would be on a sound stage, wearing a mic, cameras on me constantly, and with millions of people watching. But that's what 'The Price Is Right' is for me. I love it." THE PRICE IS RIGHT fun facts: Since 1972, over $300,000,000 in cash and prizes has been given away. THE PRICE IS RIGHT has given away more than 8,400 cars.

dug-days-disney-season-1-release-date.jpg

In honor of International Dog Day, Disney+ has released a new trailer and key art for Pixar Animation Studios' "Dug Days," a new series of five shorts that follows the humorous misadventures of Dug, the lovable dog from Disney and Pixar's Oscar(R)-winning feature film "Up" whose high-tech collar translates his thoughts into speech. Bob Peterson, the voice of Dug then and now, wrote and directed the new shorts; Kim Collins produces. It was familiar material for Peterson, who was a screenwriter and co-director on "Up," which won an Oscar(R) for best animated feature. He has long understood why fans are so drawn to the character. "Dug is pure of heart - he's a good soul. I think people enjoy that part of Dug," says Peterson. "Plus, people love their dogs. We've gone to great lengths to include truth in dog behavior, so they see their own dogs in Dug." Coming up with new adventures for Dug was not a problem for Peterson, who kept top of mind the idea that this is Dug's first time out of Paradise Falls. "Everything is new, and he's excited about all of it," he says. "But the smallest things can distract Dug, never mind an actual squirrel." All five shorts debut on Disney+ on Sept. 1.

She and her family and friends will all continue to grow up and come into their own this year. I promise you will laugh, I am pretty sure you will cry, and most of all, I hope this season is as meaningful to watch as it was for all of us to make.
