"Come on down!" "The Price Is Right" -- hosted by Bob Barker until 2007 and Drew Carey thereafter -- features a wide variety of games and contests with the same basic challenge: Guess the prices of everyday (or not-quite-everyday) retail items. Four contestants, all of whom are seated in one of the wildest audiences in daytime game-show history, are called to the stage to play a preliminary pricing round. That winner joins the host on stage for one of more than 70 different pricing games. After three such games, the contestants spin a big wheel -- hoping to get as close to $1 as possible -- in the "Showcase Showdown." The two highest winners of that round advance to the final, where prizes could be cars or roomsful of furniture. A trio of models presents the prizes. Written by

Drew Carey has completely destroyed the greatest game show ever.I tried to not let it bother me when he had over six months to prepare for his first episode and then came in not knowing a single thing about the show.I try to ignore the male models and terrible live bands that have no place on this show, but I can't ignore Drew Carey's sycophantic driveling.Whenever a person loses a game he says things like "well at least you won a toaster and get to spin the wheel" or something equally stupid and unnecessary.Plus he constantly points out that the models are beautiful and have names.And after nine years as the host he still has no idea where the wheel is going to stop.Maybe he's pretending to make the show more exciting?I find it hard to believe that a person can be that stupid.The worst part about Carey as the host is that he has put a stop to people booing anyone who can't get the wheel all the way around.It was one of the best things about the show but since it didn't involve kissing butt he had to get rid of it.Carey has made this show extremely uncomfortable and very hard to watch.
