    Drew Carey To Replace Barker On 'Price Is Right'

    (AP) NEW YORK Genial comic Drew Carey was tapped Monday to replace silver-haired legend Bob Barker on the CBS daytime game show “The Price is Right.”

    Carey confirmed the deal during a taping of the “Late Show” with David Letterman.

    The selection attracted more attention than usual for a daytime show because of the prospect of replacing Barker, 83. Barker retired after 35 years in the job last month following taping of his 6,586th episode.

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

    Carey, 49, spent a decade on his own ABC sitcom and also was host of the game show “Whose Line is It Anyway?,” a comic improvisational show.

    He will also be host of a new CBS prime-time game show, “The Power of 10,” that will air first next month. He told The Associated Press that CBS officials first contacted him about “The Price is Right" immediately after he completed a pilot of the other game show this spring.

    I wonder if he plans on doing this for the next thirty years like Bob.
    Seems like it would take up most of his time, not that he has much else going on.

    I liked Richard Karn (Al from Tool Time) on Family Feud, but he only lasted a couple years now they have the annoying nasal guy from Dancing With the Stars and the insurance commercials.

    I don't know about that, the show only lasts an hour a day. It says he will also be hosting a new show called power of 10, so that's like 2 hours a day, when will he find the time to eat.
