In a taping for tonight's episode of "The Late Show," Carey told Dave, "It's a done deal. I'm the new host of "The Price Is Right.'"

Drew told Dave that he found out the deal was complete while he was waiting to come out for the show. The deal is so fresh, Drew doesn't even know when he begins!

Drew will be a great host on this show! Let's face it, no one could do T.P.I.R. better than Bob but Drew will give it his own spin and the show will continue on for the next 35 years simply because it's a great format that will always have sponsors willing to pay top $$$$ to have their products tastefully presented as part of the show! **HAPPY RETIREMENT** Bob, and I'm glad you got out while you're still young enough to enjoy it!! :)

GOODBYE PRICE IS RIGHT. DREW CARRY MUMBLES, ISN'T FUNNY, ISN'T ENTERTAINING AND THE WRONG, WRONG, WRONG CHOICE TO REPLACE BOB BARKER. IF THERE WAS A DOUBT ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT TO END THE SHOW WHEN BOB RETIRED TO SEE IF SOMEONE COULD FILL HIS SHOES, THE WRONG PERSON WAS CHOSEN AND THE SHOW WILL NOW END, AS IT SHOULD HAVE WITH BOB. THE SHOW COULD HAVE GONE ON WITH JOHN O'HURLEY, MARIO LOPEZ OR IAN Z., BUT NOT, NOT, NOT WITH DREW CARRY. UGH, UGH, UGH!!!!

Well, I thought that Rosie would have been fabulous, although middle America disagreed. Then my second choice was E l len Degeneres with her off beat style...I think that Drew will work out, but regardless who they ultimately pick, they have to make some changes in the game anyway. In a situation like this carbon copying this show would not work to succeed, it needs a fresh new spin for it to click without the public making obvious comparisons while keeping the original format the same.....I just love the show, and would have watched it regardless it.....Gook Luck Drew!

Drew Carey? Not a bad choice, but hard to believe he was the best to audition. I like Carey's comedy, but will the 70 somethings be as loyal to a younger guy as they were to Bob?
