THE PRICE IS RIGHT, daytime television's most-watched program, celebrates the romance of Valentine’s Day by inviting couples to “Come on Down” together on a special episode, Thursday, February 14 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon ET; 10:00-11:00 a.m. PT). And to make sure that no one is fighting over prizes, each pair of lovebirds will play for prizes that the couples can enjoy together, such as his and her designer watches, sunglasses and clothing, “date nights” for a year of movie tickets, flowers and dinner, and a romantic trip to Paris. Couples who make it to the Showcase Showdown will have the opportunity to bid on prizes, including a diamond pendant, a pair of iPads and, since Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without something sweet, a “chocolate” colored car.
LET’S MAKE A DEAL, with host Wayne Brady, celebrates Valentine’s Day with an all-expense paid trip to Paris and Valentine’s Day themed prizes for singles and couples, including a $15,000 cash prize, on Thursday, February 14 (check local listings). Other themed prizes will range from cars and scooters to a ski trip and a vacation in New Orleans. Zonks are still a vital part of the show, even on Valentine’s Day. Notable Zonks that traders will need to avoid are Zonk candy, Zonk gorilla cupid, Zonk corn dog and a Zonk broken heart. The Big Deal of the Day promises to be memorable as the total value for one lucky trader is over $28,000.
