On Family Feud, not at all surprisingly, a contestant used a common word for backside that may not be suitable for television. So Steve Harvey gave him a list of names he could have used in its place. And it was quite the list.
A contestant on The Price Is Right who predicted to his family that he'd win a car, actually did win a car.
On Family Feud, Steve Harvey may have just discovered the next great rapper.

Harvey liked the rap but doesn’t necessarily see a future for her as a hip-hop artist.

On "Family Feud," a contestant was asked to name a way a woman knows her date is going in for a kiss.
When Mercedes, a contestant on The Price is Right this week, warned her fellow contestant, Samuel, that he better not bid $1 after her bid, he did what any competitive game show contestant would do: He bid $1. Neither of them won a prize on that particular bid, which allowed time for Samuel to elevate himself from just being competitive to being a flat-out troll. Because when Mercedes decided to bid $1 the next time around, Samuel joked that he was going to bid $2 on top of her.
Modern Family star Julie Bowen joined The Price Is Right on Thursday as part of the show’s Celebrity Charity Week, where she helped four of the six contestants win great prizes. One contestant in particular, Kenneth, stood out from the rest from the moment he was called to go onstage. Kenneth was emotional when he met Drew Carey, telling Carey over and over that he loves him. As if meeting Carey wasn’t enough, then Kenneth got to meet Bowen and got the chance to win a brand-new SUV.
Jeopardy! contestant Doug Baker is married to Stephanie Jass, one of the most celebrated female contestants in Jeopardy! history. “There is, perhaps, more pressure on this man, Doug Baker, as a contestant on Jeopardy!” Trebek said.
Running around yelling and screaming is perfectly normal when a contestant guesses closest to the right price from the contestants’ row and gets to go onstage to play a game. Doing a handstand as soon as he gets onstage is not normal, and that’s exactly what this contestant did.
It’s already the third season of The Price Is Right Thailand, and we JUST discovered it. There are slight differences between The Price Is RIght Thailand and its American counterpart, but it is every bit as entertaining if not more so, whether you understand the language or not.

In 1980, White was a contestant on The Price Is Right, but she didn’t win a “doggone thing,” as she puts it. Not only that, but host Bob Barker called her out for looking at herself in the monitor the whole time! More than 35 years later, White has an explanation for this.

On "Jeopardy" this week, host Alex Trebek welcomed a contestant whose job in medical school was to breed hamsters. When Trebek asked why they can’t just do that on their own, she specified that what her job really entailed was to introduce the rodents and let them take it from there. Trebek then chatted with the returning champ, and after hearing his story of how he tried to impress a girl, the host brought the conversation back to the topic of hamsters.
Game shows are back and people are freaking out. A contestant on "The Price Is Right" was a little too excited, even for game show standards, when she got onstage and met Drew Carey. The relatively calm set of "Wheel of Fortune" got a little louder this week, with one contestant starting synchronized screams with Pat Sajak.
Steve Harvey might have known there'd be trouble when he asked for a word beginning with the “p” sound; Drew Carey's gives a shout-out to "yodely guy."

The host of The Late Late Show with James Corden popped by The Price Is Right as a special guest model and put his own special spin on the daytime gig.
