Carey confirms talks with CBS

Sunday, July 22, 2007

Actor-comedian Drew Carey confirmed he is in talks with CBS about his telling Los Angeles studio guests to come on down on The Price is Right.

The comic and current host of CBS’ quiz show The Power of 10 emerged about a month ago as the front-runner to replace the venerable host Bob Barker, who retired as a game show host earlier this year, Variety reported Friday.

On Thursday, Carey said the talks have moved to the point of finalizing the details on a deal.

“It’s going back and forth. We call them one day, and they call us the next day,” Carey said. “I think it would be really fun to do. I wouldn’t have gone into negotiations with them if I didn’t think I would be good at it.”
