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.

Did you ever notice how the networks always go for the known name in these circumstances, rather than trying something fresh? They've been doing that since programs were broadcast on radio.

Yes, I have. It's really a shame because the ones who are fresh could really perk the show up and bring with it some much needed new ideas and perspective.

I thought Drew would do good, but I agree that he is doing terrible. He mumbles and goes way too quick. They need someone with natural wit and charm. Ellen would have been great, but she's busy.... \:\)

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.

Ellen? Rosie? Seriously? Why do they have to be gay to be the host of Price is Right?

I cannot stand either of those so if that is the case I would rather have Phyllis Diller be the host....or Dr. Ruth. Are they still alive even? Lol.

"Bob got very impatient over the last several years"

He knew that he was running out of time.

I vote for Ty Pennington. He can also give us some tips while he does the show.

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.

I just checked, and he's still alive! I feel so "out of it"! Maybe I should plug in my TV again, so I can keep up with the important news about these important celebrities.

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.
