I discovered recently that the title "The New Price Is Right" (1972) has reverted to its original IMDb title "The Price Is Right" (1972). Some years ago, "New" was added because "The New Price Is Right" was the game show's original title, even though "new" was removed during its first season. The AKA title "The Price Is Right" was added with the attribute "USA (new title)".

Is there any particular reason that the title was changed? The AKA title and main title are now the same.
