    The Price is Right with Drew Carey is still NOT having one of its greatest season yet with way too many Double Overbids and a few Double Showcase winners not even Drew, the models and the contestants are even more dumber than in previous seasons. Really hope The Price is right is going to get “canceled” in the near future or possibly end after 42 seasons because Drew Carey is still NOT in the level Bob Barker was in when he retired six years ago. :-( :-(

    You have to be joking. Drew is a great host and took this show in the direction it needed to go. He was shaky when he started and had many naysayers shaking their heads in shame, but he stepped up to the plate and now I couldn’t imagine anyone else hosting the show after Bob. 42 seasons in and still my favorite gameshow on television.

    Also, we can turn to the facts. Price is Right’s ratings sunk when Drew took over, but they’ve consistently risen and now they are even higher than they were when Bob was hosting. This season I believe is one of the highest rated the show has had in a long time.

  • Jack Bauer

    I hope The Price is Right with Drew Carey is still on the verge of getting “canceled” in the near future by CBS. The contestants are more dumber sometimes when they’re playing pricing games and I don’t care if they win or lose on every show it airs because Drew isn’t getting inside the contestants’ head. Bob Barker was 10x better than Drew Carey and I really hope by the time Season 42 debuts on September 23rd, it may or may not the beginning of the end of TV’s longest running game show in history. TPIR should’ve been “canceled” after Bob Barker retired in 2007. Drew better wake up and stop messing things up in his stupid head of his.

    Wow, spamming, Jack? Seriously?

  • Jack Bauer

    I don’t care what “spamming” means.
