The Price Is Right Has A New Host

Drew Carey, Come on down! You're the next host of “The Price is Right!”

Carey has been tapped to replace the legendary Bob Barker on the CBS daytime game show. Carey confirmed the deal during a taping of the “Late Show” with David Letterman.

The selection has attracted more attention than usual for a daytime show because of the prospect of replacing Barker, who retired after 35 years in the job last month.

The opening had attracted widespread interest, including from comic Rosie O'Donnell after she left “The View.”

Carey spent a decade on his own ABC sitcom and was also host of the comic improvisational show “Whose Line is It Anyway?”

    I agree I do not thikn Drew Carey will be serious enough to be the host. I hope the ratings do not go down because so many older people watch the game show.

    I have no problem with Drew Carey being the new host. I love his shows and he is funny and is a good actor. I think he'll do fine being the new host. Thank God it wasn't Rosie O'Donnell.

    I think Drew Carey will not be a good host of The Price is Right. He will mess up everything if he gets to be the one to host it.
