*totals are based on the MSRP of the prizes and rounded to the nearest dollar.
It's a special day on The Price Is Right, as kids and their parents are taking over! All of our prizes are kid-tested, 33-approved.

We kick it off with Krista, Hanna & Leyna Spearrows; Ramona & Joshua LaPartisans; Nikki, Cash & Shy Hennessey; and Jody Moble & Zade Mobbi, who get to bid on an iPad with karaoke. The $2264 system goes to the Spearrows, who get to try for a 2015 SCION tC in One Away. It isn't $31,652. They try $22,743... one... two... three... three honks. $20,543? Nope, it's $20,763.

Jody & Zade get $2144 electric skateboards & bikes and a shot at a ski trip for 4 to Lake Tahoe in Range Game. Zade almost stops it immediately, but Jody stops him. She stops it at $5565. The price... $5709!

Ramona & Joshua get a $1659 trampoline, but can they jump on $10,000 in 1/2 Off? They get two rounds from a $130 toy helicopter, a $30 Hello Kitty pancake maker, a $15 Nerf football, and a $40 Spirograph. That leaves 5, 10, 15, and 16. They pick #15... EMPTY. It was in #10. They also spin out a win on the Big Wheel.

Meanwhile, Andrew & Jacob Pena win a $505 set of sneakers. Can they get a game table and a MacPro with GoPros in Double Cross?

4 2 1   6 8 1
2 4 9   7 5 0


They slide the game table to $3750 and the MacPro/GoPro package to $2493... But that's wrong. They were $1375 and $4936 respectively.

Sandra, Aiden & Hannah Kemp pick up a $610 PlayStation 4 package and a shot at a home theatre with seats & 3DTV in Flip Flop. The price is not $5825. They flop to $5852... they should've flipped to $8525.

The Hennesseys have one last shot at it with a set of neat wrist-phones. The price: $776. Winners... the Hennesseys! Next is a 2015 FIAT 500 POP in Pass the Buck. They have two picks. First pick is #5... $5000. #3... THE CAR! They also outlast their opponents in the Showdown.

First up, fun outdoors with a pair of hanging cocooons, a firepit table with chairs, and a skiboat. Top winners the Hennesseys pass, and the LaPartisans bid $22,377. Next, trips for the whole family to the Bahamas (6n @ Nassau), Sequoia (5n @ the Wuksachi Lodge), and Australia (6n @ Perth, WA). They bid $23,500. Actual price... of the LaPartisans' Showcase: $27,780, a difference of $5403. Actual price of the Hennesseys' Showcase... $23,.... 697! With a difference of $197, THE HENNESSEYS WIN BOTH SHOWCASES AND A TOTAL OF $74,548!

Patton Oswalt
"The Heart, She Holler"
Pete Holmes
Kyle Kinane
"Kyle Kinane: I Liked His Old Stuff Better"

While you were wondering what the heck happened with the NFC Championship... and getting it explained to you by your mother... we were moving the show back to its titular timeslot. Tonight's #HashtagWars: in celebration of new albums by Belle & Sebastian and the Decemberists... and Zooey Deschanel being preggers, #MakeHistoryCute. Pete leads with 800 to Patton & Kyle's 600 a piece.

Into act 2 we go with Florida Man and our Live Challenge: Monkey Linguist. From the Subreddit YouTube Haiku, we have a monkey trainer speaking monkey. Teach us another sentence in monkey. The 1000 goes to Patton for "These ticks are delicious, I simply must have the recipe."

Tonight's Speed Game: Wiki How's That Now? And much like the Pete Holmes Show, Pete's time on this show is coming to an end.

FTW: Google has halted sales of Google Glass. Write a eulogy for this ill-fated accessory. The winner: "Now I'll have to IMAGINE what 'mustard felching' looks like while waiting in line at Starbucks". And mustard felching... went to KYLE KINANE!

Remember, today's funny becomes tomorrow's source material. Follow the game online @midnight.

Emma & Stephanie
best friends who travel together
Leslie & Scott
married for 6 years, together for 16
Sheryl Underwood
"The Talk"
Emmanuelle Chriqui

ROUND 1: Emma & Stephanie start with "What Time Is It?" (time traveling characters or actors who have played them), getting only Ebenezer Scrooge for $100. Leslie & Scott get "It's All Fun and Games Until..." (celebrities who have been "Punk'd"), getting two for $200. Though strictly speaking, Ebenezer Scrooge didn't time travel so much as he went on a really bad head trip.

Star swap! Leslie gives on "Furry Friends" (famous animals), getting four for $800, $1000 total. Emma gives on "Think Inside the X-Box" (celebrities who've voiced video game characters), getting ... nothing. We're still at $100.

Craig takes the podium for "Mound & Mound We Go" (famous figures who've thrown out a first pitch at a baseball game). Emma gets the first... while Leslie & Scott get the rest to win, $3000 to $200.

Again, that money is theirs. Now to play for the big money in the $20,000 Bonus Round. Leslie gets Sharon Stone, Tarzan, Wheat Thins, and Sean Connery, but craps out on Happy Days. Scott gets Dr. Dolittle and Dr. J, but that's it for $3000.

  After a pretty lackluster game on Friday, Nicholas returns to defend against...
Nicholas Bérubé
orig. State College, PA
Leah Turpin
Villa Park, IL
senior manager of call center operations
Tim Lane
Montvale, NJ
financial services executive

Nicholas starts with $200 Vo"Ch"abulary. At the TV timeout, the champ is behind but not by much, $3400 to $3600. Leah is still at the gate.

Leah finds the Daily Double under $1000 Little Weasels. She fronts it all on this: as its name indicates, this member of the weasel family has the same favorite food as Winnie-the-Pooh. "What is a honey badger?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $2000! She ends up with $2800. With Nicholas healthily in the lead with $7600 to Tim's $3800, Leah will get the board to start Double Jeopardy!...

... with $400 Same First & Last Letter, finding the first Daily Double under $2000. She bets $1200 on this: temporary cessation of breathing; asphyxia is when it's not so temporary. "What is apnea?" Right for $6400. She finds the other under $1600 Powerful Books. She bets $600 on this: published in 1513, it was dedicated "to the magnificent Lorenzo di Piero de' Medici". "What is 'The Prince'?" RIGHT for $12,200. She ends with $14,200 to Nicholas' $20,800. Tim is still a factor with $11,400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! on "British Business Names": still around, these 2 rival companies became with a 1744 sale of "scarce & valuable books" & a 1766 sale of chamber pots. Correct response: what are Christie's & Sotheby's?

Everyone misses again. Leah was the closest. Nicholas backdoors into another win with $12,800, giving him $19,600 for two.

Giovanni can take the trip to Mexico or take Curtain 2. Giovanni takes the trip and passes on A BRICK LIVING ROOM(ZONK!)

Tomika the Bowling Ball can win a Honda Civic LX Sedan worth $19,180! She is playing GO FOR A SPIN. We have a wheel with cash up to $5,000, 5 zonk spaces and 1 car space. She can increase her odds of winning the Civic by changing up to 3 zonk spaces into car spaces. How? By correctly predicting what a studio audience preferred from the following pairs: CAMPFIRE/FIREPLACE, SHAKEN/STIRRED and TOM CRUISE/CARIBBEAN CRUISE. Tomika gets CAMPFIRE, misses SHAKEN and gets CARIBBEAN CRUISE. She has $1,000($500 per correct answer) and switches two spaces from zonk to car. Will Tomika take $1,000 or GO FOR A SPIN? She goes for A SPIN and wins.....THE CAR! That's a new owner of a $19,180 Civic!

Who keeps and who trades for the LMAD Envelope? They both keep their prizes and pass on a TRIP TO ZONKVILLE(viewer submitted ZONK)

Shannel the Rubik's Cube has Curtain 2 with Tiffany tossing pizza dough as a clue. Will she take the curtain or $500?...$1,000? She takes the money and passes on a pizza baking kitchen with oven/accessories and stand mixer worth $4,734! Leslie the Pink Lady can have Curtain 1 or Jonathan's small box. We have a song battle and afterwards she picks Curtain 1. She passes on the box and it was a Louis Vuitton case and jewelry worth $3,870! She passes on $800...$1,000...$1,200...and wins a trip to Toronto at the Extended Stay America Hotel for 4N and $500 GC worth $5,874!

We need a couple and they are Joseph/Wendy(chips/salsa). They are playing for a Scion xD worth $16,675! It is on sale for $2,000. How can Joseph/Wendy earn that money. We have 15 squared with either $200 or $400 behind them and 2 zonks. If they can avoid the 2 zonks before earning $2,000, they can buy the Scion. Their first pick is 13 and $200 is theirs. 2 is $200. They have $400. 8 is $400. They have $800 and pick 6 and it's the ZONK. They are out. Consolation pick is 1 is $400/2 = $200!

Last deal involves Melinda the Tennis player. She has Curtain 1 and the Big Box. Jonathan shows an EXTREME CLOSE UP of both prizes for Melinda to look at. She takes one and the other one goes to Jennifer the Spicy Mustard. Melinda takes the Big Box and Jennifer has the Curtain. She passes on $500...$800...for the Curtain and wins a new living room from Apt worth $3,918! The picture was of the drawer on the table. Melinda takes $1,300 not to take the box and passes on ZONK BOBBLEHEADS(ZONK)! The picture was of the shoulder joint on Wayne's head!

  Tres Cossaboom (New York, NY)
His legal first name is William III. He was named Tres due to his family apparently running out of nicknames.
(+1): One of his best friends, Kate (was a contestant earlier in the season)

He calls on Kate as well as the audience for the 5th question, but neither is of enough help to him, so he jumps it and the $7,000 it had. He does have $25,100 heading into this...

Sung by Frank Sinatra in the 1956 movie "High Society," what song shares its name with a popular game show?
A: Let's Make a Deal
B: Wheel of Fortune
C: Family Feud
D: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

Tres is now wishing he hadn't used all of those lifelines so soon. Part of him is eliminating D, and he's thinking B or C, but at the same time, he can't rule out A. After some more thought, he starts thinking it's A or B. He's about to go with B, but he then pulls back and decides to walk with $12,550! As for the answer, it's actually D!

To end the show for today, Ramara Barber (Manchester, CT) is chosen from the audience to play for $1,000...

To honor the late wildlife expert Steve Irwin, Australian scientists who discovered a new species of snail gave it what name?
A: Golly steveirwini
B: Crikey steveirwini
C: Heyo steveirwini
D: Jeepers steveirwini

Ramara has no clue. She decides to guess D... but it's B!
