The Price is Right

For George H.

3/30/2007 5:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0330_george_hamilton_ex_fm-1TMZ has learned that George Hamilton is the front-runner to replace Bob Barker on the "Price is Right."

We're told that CBS honcho Les Moonves and the show's producers think George is "wonderfully charming" and "could really make the show work."

We'll let you know if and when the perma-tanned TV titan is told to "come on down!"

I think they should comb all of the nursing homes in the country and find a suitable replacement for Bob Barker. Providing the new host doesn't wear depends, or a hearing aide, and doesn't break wind uncontrollably. Now that I think of it, maybe all of those qualities might just improve the ratings, OLD PEOPLE WHO FART ROCK!!!

I think hes too stuck on himself to be able to effectively mingle and talk with contestants.

I think they could be making a mistake. What about one of the other known game show host. What about Chuck Wollery? Or is he under contract somewhere else.

Bob's "skinny microphone"    

#51 -- Give Bob a break! He sometimes listens to contestants who adequetely bow and scrape in his presence.

Let's face it, folks. CBS could put an actual carnival barker in Bob's place and PEOPLE WOULD STILL WATCH! Why? Because the show'll still give every lunkhead in America the chance to "come on down," experience 15 minutes of fame, and win big money and prizes. The show and the audience are the stars!

True, Barker is the ringmaster, and he's a terrific host who'll be missed. But plug another tanned, grey-haired geriatric into the equation and as long as he doesn't speak in tongues or headbutt old women (at least not while sexually harassing the young ones), AMERICA WILL LOVE HIM. It'll be goodbye "I Heart Bob" t-shirts and hello "I Heart Leatherface #2."

People will be $entinmental for about a month, then it's time to kiss the new guy's arse.

If you want the ratings for the Price is Right to drop way down then George Hamilton is the person to have. Come on fellas there is someone else that isn't stuck on himself. Please consider someone different. No George, no George!

What about Doug Davidson from the Young and the Restless. He did a short stint when the Price is Right was on for a short time as a night version. He would be great, that is if it didn't interfere with his daytime job. He is not stuck on himself like someone else who has been mentioned.

I don't care WHO takes Bob Barker's job. He is too old and just plain nasty to look at. He's an OLD coot who needs to be replaced before he drops dead on his show.

His scandal years ago shows he is an ass*&*(. LOUD AND CLEAR !!!

My cat could host the show just as easily.

one of the reasons bob barker is so popular is his tireless work for homeless animals, so i hope george is an animal lover. if not, i hope cbs keeps looking.

No, no, no, no, no! Say it isn't so! I won't watch the show if perma tan man is the host. Yawn! Put him on Family Feud and hire John O'Hurley as the host of Price is Right....now there's someone that could keep the fun and show alive! He's a great tv host, great looking (uh huh!) and has experience but tan man? Nada.
