Live for the present.  Embrace the future.  Our favorite game show is still producing excellent, high quality, exciting, hour-long* shows every weekday throughout its traditional season window.  Itís as good as itís been in a long, long time.  If the 1980s were the Ďgood ole daysí for the Barker era, so is RIGHT NOW for the Carey era.  Donít worry about what the future holds.  It will play out in due time.  Enjoy what we have right in front of us in the meantime!

nicely said about living for the present. also yeah they surely chunked a bunch of commercials.

I hope he stays for a long time. He may not reach the records of Barker or even Sajak, but he's definitely earned his place in The Price is Right legacy.
weirdly after hearing this even though completely not the point I would not mind watching price is right with Pat hosting.

Would be unusual to be sure, although Pat did do Jeopardy very well back in 1997 during the April 1st episode.

I think Pat's low key personality would not be a good fit for Price though.  He is 76 currently, which would not necessarily be an issue as Mr. Barker held court until his early 80s.

I can't imagine why Pat Sajak is even in the discussion here-- he's much closer to retiring than Drew is right now. The better question is who will be hosting Wheel after Pat retires.

What do you think of Rachel new hostess?
Hmm, that is intriguing. She's been there almost 20 years now so she would at least know the show and the games. I can't say we have seen enough of her presenting to gauge whether she could, but it's an interesting thought at the very least.

That could probably go for any of the current (or, depending on how long it is until the time comes, future) modelling crew members.

It would seem like a logical way to go, as it does avoid some of the issues of training someone totally new, like Drew was.

I think the Sajak stuff was more of a joke than reality.  Or a combination of wishful thinking and something that would be interesting while falling in the line of "no chance it's happening".

I think the reason why Pat was brought up in the first place was just to compare where Drew would stand in terms of the record for the longest tenured host with one show, when Carey is done with Price.

Rachel as the host would be pretty neat to see.  As mentioned, she has been there for a couple decades & has a great relationship with the staff.  I wouldn't bet one way or another right now, but I agree it's an interesting thought.  Say Drew called it quits in a decade.  She would be at the perfect age to host if the opportunity was there.  However, I imagine she might be too involved with her family to have the time to commit

(Emphasized by me.)

Insofar as game shows are concerned, Pat does not currently hold this record -- nor, for that matter, is he even in the top three (or "on the medal podium", to phrase it in another way), who (as far as I am aware) are:
-Don Francisco (Sabado Gigante, approx. 53 years),
-Nicholas Parsons (Just A Minute, approx. 52 years), and
-Mac McGarry (It's Academic, approx. 50 years).

Caveat: As the host of a five-a-week program (the above three were weekly), Pat may very well hold the record in that respect.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

I wonder would they give George a try? He does have hosting experience i don't know if he would be the right fit for the show.

It's possible, but not probable.  I imagine TPTB would pass on hiring from within, going with someone on the outside.

I do think Gray getting a chance would be great, but I wouldn't bet on it.  Of course we're far away from that.  He might be content with exiting with Carey when that time comes.

BTW, George isn't too much younger than Drew so I figured that they'd get someone that would end up being the face of the show for decades

Let's be honest, none of us probably have heard of the next host.

Drew Carey arguably made it "big" when he first appeared nationally on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1991.  16 years later he's hosting Price.  If 2035 is 12 years away, it's not out of the question the next big name to take over is just barely getting into the business, if at all.

It's almost impossible to speculate who will host if they may not have had their breakout yet.

Unless another moderator or admin objects, I think this thread has run its course and then some.  Drew isnít retiring anytime soon.  If and when he does make such an announcement, then Iím sure speculation will run rampant. 

But like I said over a month ago:

Live for the present.  Embrace the future.  Our favorite game show is still producing excellent, high quality, exciting, hour-long* shows every weekday throughout its traditional season window.  Itís as good as itís been in a long, long time.  If the 1980s were the Ďgood ole daysí for the Barker era, so is RIGHT NOW for the Carey era.  Donít worry about what the future holds.  It will play out in due time.  Enjoy what we have right in front of us in the meantime!
