I was wondering around the channels this morning, looking for something to entertain me in the vulnerable moments of "I just woke up-ness" and trying to determine how much i really like the Frosted Mini Wheats sitting in my cereal bowl when i found the Price is Right and felt like it would do the trick. The first close up was of a really excited lady, and the second close up was of Drew Carey, pretending to be Bob Barker.
WHAT?! Drew Carey?! Drew Carey of that really bad show entitled The Drew Carey Show? Drew Carey who isn't actually funny enough to be an active participant on his own improv show? (He's an executive producer.) Drew Carey holding Bob Barker's old school microphone?!
And that is all there is to it.
I really don't know how i missed knowing he was going to be the new host. Somewhere in my brain i have a recollection of reading or hearing somewhere that Bob Barker was calling it quits, (or had died) and i kind of assumed the Price is Right would be done too. I figured they would just throw it into syndication. No one can tell a Price is Right rerun from a Price is Right first run anyway. Who watches it enough?
It turns out i was wrong. The lady in the picture seems to know all about it, because she was able to have a shirt made with Drew on it.
I can't believe i am so far behind on my Price is Right knowledge. If this old lady knew about it, what else have i been missing?
