Is Drew Carey adding announcer to his title for the new season of The Price Is Right when the show returns on Monday for its new season on CBS. Nope just him joking around, but looks like if he did he would need just a little more training. But as a host of the classic game show he did a better a job than I thought and I knew he was going to be amazing at it!
CBS's THE PRICE IS RIGHT is donating six historical set pieces from television's longest-running game show for an online auction at www.charityfolks.com/paleycenter to benefit The Paley Center for Media. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Paley Center's ongoing efforts to increase the public's understanding of the media and its growing significance in today's society through various public and industry programs. Bidding will begin at 8:00 AM, ET Tuesday, Dec. 4 and last for two weeks, ending at 6:00 PM, ET on Monday, Dec 17.
They are auctioning off some really cool and big items from the set like the 3 door frames signed by Bob Barker, a lighted sign and the canvas used to hide the prizes and so far the prices are not that bad! Can you imagine owning one of the door frames from The Price is Right for $1,000. Not bad at all!
Finally the day has arrived, the day Drew Carey starts hosting The Price Is Right on CBS! I can’t wait to see what an awesome job he does on the show because from the sounds of that video he definitely has the right attitude!
Wait now we have to tune into The Price is Right on Monday, October 15th to find out if she was actually able to hold it in or did she go to the bathroom up there. After all she was hidden up there and she won $20,000 so she can afford a new pair of jeans.
And is it just me or when she ran up to meet Drew Carey she kind of sounded like she was really excited…you know the bedroom like excited?
I can’t wait to watch Drew Carey (my first choice) host The Price is Right and find out if that woman was able to go potty on Monday!!!
2007 is Drew Carey's year! First he comes back in a big way with CBS's Power of 10, then he gets the game show dream job of a lifetime hosting The Price is Right and now word is that he is engaged to his live-in girlfriend! Good for him! I hope 2008 and 2009 and so on are just as successful and happy for him because he is known as one of the best guys to work with in this town!!!
BTW his first appearance as host of The Price is Right is this Monday, October 15th and we all know he is going to kick a$$! By November sweeps we will all be going Bob Barker who?
While Drew Carey was promoting his new game show on CBS Power of 10, he answered some questions about an old show on the network. Here is what he told Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith about The Price Is Right:
"There are all kinds of rumors all over the Internet, because rumors are all people have to report with," he observes. "I love how these things get going. A friend of mine and I were talking about how Rosie O'Donnell was made into a possible host for 'The Price Is Right.' You know, someone asks Bob Barker backstage at the Daytime Emmys, 'What would you think of Rosie O'Donnell taking your place?' And just to be polite, he goes, 'Yeah, sure. Why not?' So then she's taking general meetings all around town, thinking about what's coming up for her after 'The View,' and someone says, 'What about 'The Price Is Right'? It's all over the Internet that Bob Barker wants you to take his place.' And she says, 'Yeah, sure. Why not? I'm meeting with CBS Thursday.' And it all started from this stupid question someone asked Bob Barker."
OK, Drew, but how about your hosting "The Price is Right"? "Yeah, sure. Why not?" he replies, laughing. "It would be fun to do, I think. If something happens, yeah."
I really hope he is offered the job as the host of the show because I think he would be fantastic in the role.
So Rosie did a vblog saying that she was turning down the hosting job of The Price is Right because she didn't want to up root her family to LA. Well I am hearing she was never offered the position from a really good source. In fact a weeks ago they offered the job to someone else, and it was not Rosie O'Donnell as she would like us to believe. And for her to say she doesn't want to move her family to LA, when she was willing to move them if FX would have picked up her Nip/Tuck spin-off of Dawn Budge. Is she so worried that people will think she is less desirable if she gets turned down for a job? So if Rosie lied about this, what else she lying about?
Variety is reporting the latest rumor on who might fill Bob Barker's big shoes at The Price Is Right and they are saying it is Drew Carey? I have blogged before that if I could choose anyone to get the show it would be Drew Carey, which makes me wonder if CBS has been reading my blog. Just joking! But I really hope he gets it because if anyone could do it he could. He has comedic timing, hosting experience and he is humble unlike some of the other candidates that have been named, so let's hope he gets it! And that Rosie O'Donnell doesn't put a hit on him!
BTW CBS and Freemantle are remaining silent on all rumors.
