Vacation, all I ever wanted

January's wrapped up pretty well, so here's the report for The Price Is Right showdowns from the 31st of December through to the 1st of February. This excludes the 21st of January which for some reason was a rerun or something. I offer no explanation for this phenomenon. Also the airdate schedule at is getting all close-mouthed about upcoming airdates. They've just posted the thing out through the 15th of this month.

First Second Third
Month 18 17 12
Season 63 68 53

There's only been a little progress in the minimum winning spins. There was one episode where it looked like 45 cents was going to beat both comers, but, nah.

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

Trivia: In 1919, Ford's Highland Park plant employed fifteen men per car per day. In February 1921, when the plant was reopened after the Christmas 1920 layoff, it employed nine per car per day. Source: Ford: The Men And The Machine, Robert Lacey.
