    Default Drew Carey to replace Bob Barker on The Price is Right

    NEW YORK -- Genial comic Drew Carey was tapped Monday to replace silver-haired legend Bob Barker on the CBS daytime game show "The Price is Right."

    Carey confirmed the deal during a taping of the "Late Show" with David Letterman.

    The selection attracted more attention than usual for a daytime show because of the prospect of replacing Barker, 83. Barker retired after 35 years in the job last month following taping of his 6,586th episode.

    The opening attracted widespread interest, including from comic Rosie O'Donnell after she left "The View."

    Carey, 49, spent a decade on his own ABC sitcom and also was host of the game show "Whose Line is It Anyway?," a comic improvisational show.

    He will also be host of a new CBS prime-time game show, "The Power of 10," that will air first next month. He told The Associated Press that CBS officials first contacted him about "The Price is Right" immediately after he completed a pilot of the other game show this spring.

    Interesting. I hadn't heard his name mentioned at all but now that I think about it I think it's a good choice.

    All I really cared about was that it wasn't Rosie O'Fat. I'd have never watched the show again.

    That's pretty cool, he has some shoes to fill but I think Drew will do just fine.

    I think he may very well be the best replacement choice. My first choice would've been put the show to rest all-together, but if the show must go on, I think this is for the best.

    "Whose Line" and "Drew Carey Show" remain two of my all time favorite TV series', so of course I've liked Drew for a very long time. But I can really say without bias I think this is the best possible replacement for Barker.

    Plus, it's nice seeing one of my favorite comedians / actors be a part of one of my favorite game shows

    Good for him. Like others have said, he's funny, has a good personality, and he isn't Rosie O'donnell........ That last one alone makes him a great choice

    I'm glad he's getting the opportunity to hold Bob Barker's mike.

    I really liked that comedy improv show tho. Is that one getting canceled or is he gonna do both shows?

    And you thought Bob Barker hit on his own beauties.

    Man, Drew will be all over these chicks. What's he gonna name them? The Barker Beauties had a nice ring to it. Can't use that any more.

    I think it's a good choice. I particularly like when Drew has been on Howard Stern's show. He's a crack up.
