Comedian Drew Carey will replace beloved gameshow host BOB BARKER as the new presenter of long-running U.S. programme The Price Is Right. Carey, the star of his own namesake sitcom and the host of improvisational comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway? was named retiring Barkers' replacement on Monday (23Jul07) after weeks of speculation. The comic confirmed he was the man for the job during a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman, which aired on Monday night. Barker has been the host of the popular gameshow for the past 35 years. Carey has suddenly become America's new gameshow king - he also hosts new primetime show, The Power of 10.
