Drew Carey! Come On Down!

You’re the next host of The Price Is Right!

Congratulations, Mr. Carey! You’ve got some mighty splendid shoes to fill.

I hope nothing else changes with The Price Is Right, now that there is a new host. I hope the sets and the models still look like throwbacks, and the games are still wacky.

You better not run the show into the ground Drew Carey! Remember your own words; don’t let them come back and bite you in the bootie.

“I realize what a big responsibility this is…It’s only a game show, but it’s the longest-running game show in American television and I plan to keep it that way.”
