New 'Price Is Right' Season, Drew Carey's 10th Year Starts Monday

Mark your calendars game show fans, because on Monday, Sept. 18, Daytime Emmy Award-Winning game shows The Price Is Right and Let’s Make A Deal will be returning to kick off fresh new seasons!

For Price host Drew Carey, this season is extra special because it marks his 10th anniversary hosting the longest-running game show on television. Special prizes are in store, as well as the debut of a new game called "Gridlock."

Inspired by Los Angeles' traffic, Gridlock will have contestants playing for a car as they "navigate" their mini game vehicle out of a lane of traffic and into an empty lane by correctly giving the price of the vehicle.
