Last April Price is Right Live! announced the game show would visit the Majestic. We called in sick to our jobs, using the time to intensively study price points of common consumer goods — blenders, dreaded dinette sets, sexytime hot tubs and jet skis — so that victory would be a lock if Not Bob Barker called our names. Then, they canceled the thing. In hindsight the crushing depression that followed was for the best, because the show’s new tour manager promises that this Saturday it’s completely, totally, really coming AND it’s being hosted by Jerry Springer. Yeah. Jerry “Stand Back and Let ’em Bludgeon Each Other with Stage Props” Springer might ask you for anecdotal facts. Jerry “56th Mayor of Cincinnati” Springer could say, “Are you familiar with PLINKO?” — like anyone isn’t familiar with PLINKO. Jerry “Final Thought” Springer will be the freakin’ sheriff of the Showcase Showdown. It happens at the Eisemann Center (2351 Performance Drive, Richardson) at 8 p.m. Saturday, and if you want to try for a competitor’s spot, show up three hours early and enter the random drawing. Want proper audience tickets? Of course you do. They cost $29 to $49. Visit eisemanncenter.com.
