And for the other half of things: there's reporting on the winning Showcase Showdown spins for The Price Is Right. This report is kind of a space-filler since there's been only one full week of the 41st season, but, why not? These numbers also include two of the summer special episodes --- the ``Back To School'' and the 40th Anniversary specials --- since I had those laying around and had closed the books on the 40th season reports back in June. So far, for episodes airing up to the 29th of September, then:

First Second Third
Month 3 3 4
Season 5 3 6

The lowest-winning-spin report has got rather few cases so far, in particular nobody winning after a tie. It's all been people who won free and clear, or who won after one or both other contestants over-spun. But the lowest winning spins to date are here:

No Overspins One Overspin Two Overspins
Solo Win 90 60 95
Tied Win - - -
Triple Tie - - -

Trivia: The Greenhouse George fusion bomb tested by teh United States in May 1951 released approximately 200 kilotons worth of energy as the result of its fission bomb design and a further 25 kilotons from the fusion of deuterium and tritium within the bomb design.
