I catch the PIR on my lunch, he is bumbling and not very personable, brings no originality to the show. They may have as well brought on a no name and had them take over. At least 3 times on the big wheel spin he's gotten the math wrong. Yikes. I admit that there must be overwhelming pressure, but it seems that they could have found someone who could do basic math.

i feel the same way..i watched it a couple of times and it bored me...seems like he is hurrying people along, even more the Bob Barker did, Bob got very impatient over the last several years...i think someone like Ben Stein would've been a good fit

Ben stein is on the "most smartest model" or something like that on either MTV or VH1, I almost fell over when I caught it. Just seems very out of character for him. I agree, though, he would be better. Yesterday Drew groaned before reading the showcase showdown price to a person's bid, so obviously they knew before he even read the price that they didn't win. What a dork.
I think the problem is that you need a "people person" for this particular type of show. Drew is a pretty funny stand-up comic, and good comedian too, but this requires a different skill. I think you're right that Ellen D would be a good fit. Maybe even (dare I say?) Rosie O'Donnell. But I don't think Drew Carey is the right sort for this job.
I don't want my country back... I want my country forward!
Yes, Ty would be good, even if he couldn't count we wouldn't notice..... So funny, while at the dentist office they had the tv on and you can vote by texting for your favorite game show host, and another person waiting turned and said, "I really wish they would bring Bob Barker back". Ironic! So we had a nice chat about how bad Drew is.
Ty would be good too! The issue with Ellen wasn't her being gay, I just think she is witty and funny, has nothing to do with her sexual preference. Rosie is a people person too, but a little more abrasive.
It's not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of life you have lived.
