It feels like years since it's been here

And now, if I may, the second part of my statistics-keeping for The Price Is Right: how the Showcase Showdowns came out for March. This covers the stretch from the 4th of March to the 29th, excepting two days which were reruns because of the great basket-ball tournament or something like that.

First Second Third
Month 10 12 14
Season 86 93 81

So it was a month for the third spinner to wrangle its way back into respectability, but it's coming from remarkably far behind. In the lowest winning spin there's been a tiny bit of progress, in that the winning spin for the case of a tie with one contestant over-spinning went somewhere. There still hasn't been a three-way tie this season, which is interesting to me and me alone.

No Overspins One Overspin Two Overspins
Solo Win 65 45 40
Tied Win 65 75 -
Triple Tie - - -

Currently Reading: Just One More Thing: Stories From My Life, Peter Falk. I don't get it. He talks a good deal, and justifiably, about the high standards he holds for movies and scripts and scenes, and then he was also in Corky Romano for some reason.
