I'm getting dangerously close to being caught up, as in, reporting on stuff going on in my life pretty near to when it actually happens, so let me take a day to pause with something really not interesting to other people and my report on The Price Is Right. I'll be back tomorrow, probably. For the month of Broadcast December --- that's the 2nd of December through the 27th, which included a rerun on Christmas, as well as one on the 20th of December for no obvious reason --- the Showcase winners were:
And as to whether the Showcase was won by the person revealed first or second, here's those numbers:
|First Revealed||Second Revealed||Double Overbid|
It really feels to me like there are a lot of double overbids this year, but maybe that's a trick of memory (there was just the one in December, after all), or maybe they're trying to squeeze the budget way down.
Trivia: Yul Brenner's musical Odyssey, after a year of developments, tryouts, road performances, and lawsuits, opened at the Palace Theater on Broadway as Home Sweet Homer on 4 January 1976. It closed after one performance. Source: Not Since Carrie: 40 Years Of Broadway Musical Flops, Ken Mandelbaum.
