If she is hired, there goes the last time I'll ever watch the Price is Right. Why would CBS hire someone that would immediately turn off half the audience? Any of the four other choices (Newton et al) cited in this article would be a hundred times better, even J. Peterman.

Add me to the "Dear Sweet Jesus, please no" camp. I like Todd Newton. Please, CBS, just give it to Todd Newton.

Common, just think of all the new innuendo that will come with Rosie's beauties.

And the fun that will be had by all from the resulting sexual harassment cases.

Both O'Hurley and Hamilton (IIRC) have the stink of poorly rated syndicated games about them, so I don't think it'll be them.

This made the rounds over the weekend, and Rosie debunked it on her website. She said they don't want her.

I think we don't have to worry...hopefully.

I think that they'd probably be best served by using a relative unknown as the host, rather than a D list celebrity.

Put me in the camp of people that won't be watching the new, non-Bob episodes.

It simply won't be the same.

I'm certain it's going to be O'Hurley, unless they find some miracle nobody in the next couple of months (which is highly unlikely...they've been quietly trying to find somebody for a couple of years now in anticipation of the inevitable.)

I think he'll do as good as anybody could in that role, but it won't be the same, people will turn it off, and that'll be the end.

Frankly, I'm shocked they're continuing at all.

It seems like no matter who it is, people aren't going to give it a chance, so why NOT use someone semi-horrid as a set-up guy (or Rosie) to go down with the ship, then after a couple months of sagging ratings, hatchet them out for your real choice, he might now be better received because they're 'saving' the show from the original awful replacement?

Or let Bob hire his own replacement, with the caveat that it can't be Rosie.

That's my thoughts on the matter - the show's going to fail without Bob Barker. No matter who they get. I don't watch "The Price Is Right" because I like it, persay. I watch it because it's television comfort food. It's the show I watched when I was home sick from school, or at my Grandma's house during summer vacation, when I was a little kid. The same show - same set, same music, same games, same host. If you change any of that you've just got a dated game show about grocery prices. And I could care less.

So let Rosie do it. That's the only host being bandied about that I would at least be curious to check out once. But the show'll be gone by the end of next year regardless.


EDIT: Though now that I've read this, I may have to change my endorsement. I could almost see his version being, you know, good.

Price May Have Been Right for Rosie; L.A. Wasn't

Rosie O'Donnell has turned down an offer from The Price Is Right producers to host the show, according to FoxNews.com's Roger Friedman. Friedman reported today (Monday) that O'Donnell met with producers of the CBS game show on Thursday but refused to travel to Los Angeles, insisting that it be brought to New York or Miami, where she lives. "The location of the show -- Los Angeles -- was the deal-breaker," Friedman wrote. Separately, he added, ratings for The View have declined 13 percent since O'Donnell left. "Losing O'Donnell was an unmitigated disaster" for the network, he commented.

Anytime Michael sits in front of a computer, I will immediately remember his role in the Matrix films. It knocks me right out of the story. As soon as he looked at the chriping PC, I thought Morpheus was trying to free his mind.
