I totally agree. I thought PIR would be ruined...but Carey's good. Not only is he good, but he's funny.

Great column.

Awesome article. I reminded of those fond years of my adolescene, when my sisters watched TPIR on mexican cable.

And I see Carey retained the trademark slim mic, although I believe he would be much comfortable with a contramption that ressembled a bowling ball :-)

I don't know anyone else who had Glamour Gals - nice to finally find someone (albeit a number of years later)!

Dude! There was one Glamour Gal sparkly blue dress that I thought was the most beautiful thing in all the world, and I totally should have kept it, all 2 inches, for when I'm famous and invited to White House state dinners, because then I'll take it to a couture dressmakers and say, "I want this, only in a size me."

Don't hate on Rich Fields. He just reads what's on the card in front of him, which is all Rod Roddy ever did. I actually thought they were going to give him the job because I wasn't sure if CBS was positive Drew was ready for 11 AM.

Though I'm beginning to think that companies are making Rich say over-the-top things just so Drew will throw an unpaid bonus comment at the end. Like the time when a electronic handheld sudoku game had Rich open with "You'll never be bored again with this sudoku game!" Drew couldn't help it.

When Howie Mandel took the gig for "Deal Or No Deal," he said the only reason he did was because "DOND" felt less like a game show and more like a life-changing experience. That goes double for "The Price Is Right," and why in the end Drew was the perfect choice: we know the rules of all the games and the Big Wheel, and we know everything involved with the show is corny as all get out. We don't need someone who'll provide cinema verité: we need someone who's genuine, entertaining, and cares about the contestants. And that's Drew in a nutshell.

Ain't no hate for Rich Fields. He keeps a bit of Bob around, is all I'm saying.

Hey, MB - My Glamour Gals had the blue one and a snazzy red one, too! I wonder if they are still hanging out in the top of a closet in my mom's house.... If so, I bet they, too, can buy their booze without being carded. Feeling your pain on that one....
