  • Price Is Right - Drew Carey or Someone Else

    This week they announced Drew Carey as host for the The Price Is Right.



    Now don't get me wrong, I like the guy, and he is funny and I loved him on Who's Line Is It Anyway. His laughing at the antics of Wayne, Colin, or Ryan would always get me laughing harder. But I just can't picture him as host of TPIR and I don't see it lasting with him as host. Anyone else have any opinions or ideas?

    Are they keeping the show the same as before, just a new host?
    Same 70's style games and look of it all??
    If so, I can't picture anyone besides Barker hosting it and he's done.

      If they change the way the game is played and the format, the show will drop faster than a brick.

        You're right but I just can't picture anyone else hosting the show with the same old look of it.
        That part of it always pushed me away from watching it. Maybe I'm too young to appreciate it.

          I don't think a smug comedian is the way to go. Too postmodern.

          Bob Barker was like our Great Uncle Sugar Daddy - - the smiling face of consumerism, kindly and generously showering us with fabulous prizes. And we loved him for it.

          Donny Osmond or Barry Williams or someone like that!

              Or how about Wayne Brady from Who's Line?

                Comedians have become tiresome in host roles.

                  I was disappointed to read that he was chosen to replace Bob. I would rather they went with an unknown.

                    TPIR went through its own 'modernizations' before.. I think they can freshen up the show and still remain true. The current show is so different from even 10 years ago.

                    Drew is an incredibly witty guy who comes across as accessible as well. I think he will do well as long as they don't try to make it a monologue each segment. Let him just interact with the contestants.. that will be enough.

                        I think they made a good choice with Drew Carey. He seems to have a great personality and is a funny guy.
                        Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban
