The Host is Right: Drew Carey Plinko This


After three decades of teasing my grandfather and then my mother about their addiction to The Price is Right and being certain that I would not share the same genetic affliction, CBS goes and makes Drew Carey the next host of the crack cocaine of game shows.

I like Drew Carey. He cracks me up. So, if I ever retire, which is not bloody likely, look for me to be sitting on the couch at 10:00 a.m. every day pricing whatever Drew's pushing in 2030.

I think Drew Carrey is hot. He should marry me. In case John Cusack won't.

Drew's a funny guy, and a fine man. But if you want to see him on The Price Is Right, you probably shouldn't wait until you retire. He won't likely stick around as long as Barker did, as he has actual talent and could do other things...

I love Drew Carrey. He's from Ohio, you know. You can't come here without hearing about that. I worked in Cleveland and did a semester of grad school at Kent State - his old stomping grounds. People are so proud of Drew Carrey around here. I guess I'm one of them because I'm tellin you!

"Don't Knock The Price Is Right"
To some retirees, that is the high light of their T.V. watching. You can understand the game and enjoy it without trying to answer some hard question by some host on some Quiz Show. It is perfect for us oldies. I like Drew Carrey, I am happy they chose him, if they would of chosen Rosie O'Donnall I would of definitly NOT watched. She would not have the patient that is needed to handle the type of contestants on the show.

Ugh...my mother in law is so wacky about the Price Is Right that she bought mine and my wife's tickets to go when we were there on our honeymoon!

I'm like..."mumble mumble"

So far, I'm sticking with my plan not to watch daytime TV. Now if Drew Carey were on The View.....

I think he's a great choice...since they didn't pick me.

Laurie said...

Gnight Girl - I do, too!

Larry - Good point.

Leslie - You're his #1 fan?!

Mom - It should be great with him on it.

Slick - I'm guessing you didn't win the Showcase Showdown.

Lorna - I would love to see that!

Pokerboss - If it couldn't be you, we'll take Drew.

I think he'll be great on that show myself. I've always liked Drew.

Laurie said...

Se7en - I totally agree. I think he'll be great.
