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 bit—honestly, it was like 15 minutes ago—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.
