Drew Carey appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman today and revealed that he’s the new host of The Price is Right.
“During your Harry Potter bitâ€”honestly, it was like 15 minutes agoâ€”they called me,” Carey told Letterman. “It’s a done deal. I’m the new host of The Price Is Right.” Bob Barker, 83, the original host of the show handed in his long, skinny microphone in June. The silver-haired personality hosted Price for 35 years, becoming a one-man daytime TV institution and a noted animal-rights advocate. The last Bob Barker hosted version of The Price is Right aired on June 15th, 2007. The Price is Right is the longest running five-days-a-week game show in the world.
