“The Price is Right,” one of the most enduring game shows in the history of TV is going dark for 2 weeks with the hope the coronavirus will subside by then … TMZ has learned.
The show is going the way of so many other entertainment shows … some are shooting without audiences and some are going down altogether … at least for the time being.
Production sources tell us they are shutting the shown down for the obvious reasons — protecting the crew, Drew and the audience from contracting the disease.
As we reported, so many shows are changing the way they do business … “Jeopardy!,” ‘Wheel,’ “The View,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” ‘Ellen’ and ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ are all shooting without audiences.
Various sources at a number of entertainment companies are all telling us the same story … they are struggling to find a balance between producing content and keeping staff safe.
