Few people get there quick by their chosen road

For The Price Is Right Showcase Showdowns, well, here's the statistics for February. This covers the period from the 4th of February through the 1st of March, with no skipped shows and no reruns to interrupt the flow of data. It also turned out to be as uniform a month as could be, for having 28 days in it, so that's nice enough.

First Second Third
Month 13 13 14
Season 76 81 67

The lowest winning spin didn't decrease in any of the six possible categories this month, although one contestant did win on 65 cents against both competitors. This category's looking like a bore, although when I get around to plotting the lowest winning spins against time ... eh. We'll see.

No Overspins One Overspin Two Overspins
Solo Win 65 45 40
Tied Win 65 95 -
Triple Tie - - -

I notice incidentally that there've been fifteen cases of double overbids on the Showcase this season, which seems high.
