Rosie O'Donnell on...the Price is Right!?

Post by G.Squirrel » Sat Jun 16, 2007 4:28 pm

Bob Barker, now retired, is endorsing Rosie O'Donnell to replace him as the iconic host of the Price is Right.

All I can say is: He's gone senile.

Oh no... he has gone senile. Who in the world would endorse her for that iconic role? :?

I thought we were finally rid of that cow. :x

Didn't Donald Trump get her fired and blacklisted from appearing on TV or something?

She got into a big fight with that one woman, the blonde one, whatever her name is, on The View and subsequently left.

Whoever is going to take over for Bob Barker is going to have utterly massive shoes to fill, and will probably have a hard time no matter who they pick...

But Rosie O'Donnell? Yeah, that's almost certainly doomed to be a failure. If they want The Price Is Right to continue on, they have to get someone better in... every single possibile way than Rosie, to replace Mr. Barker.

Then again, maybe ol' Bob knows this and wants it to happen so that the show ends up getting canceled. :P

Come on, guys. You know there's no way CBS would even entertain the idea of having Rosie host the show. Just because Bob endorses her doesn't mean they have to touch that whole flurry of controversy just to find a game show host.

If I had to pick one of the serious recommendations for Bob's replacement, it would have to be George Hamilton. Unfortunately, whoever is chosen, The Price is Right is pretty much dead as far as I'm concerned.

Which is a reason ABC might actually do this. If you remember correctly you'll realize Rosie brought The once-dead View to life. The fact that most people call The Price is Right dead would mean ABC might try what The View succeeded at, bringing in the ratings by bringing in the Cow then sending her home.
I suppose I should put something witty here, Right?

I feel the same way. I remember watching the show as a kid every morning and you just can't replace Bob with anyone. No one is going to be able to fill his shoes.

Don't worry. With as flagrantly racist as Rosie is, she'd be out in a week if she was chosen to host the show. With her big mouth, it wouldn't take her long to say something about one of the contestants, and they'd be scrambling for someone new.

It would represent one hell of a shift.

From Bob Barker...to Rosie O'Donnell.

Damn.

They need to put Adam Sandler on the Price is Right once Bob Barker retires, not Rosie O' Donnel.

Get Will Farrel to do Jeopardy and make Alex Trebek the host of The Price is Right.

It's brilliant, in my opinion.

Sean Connery is gonna have to wait. They only got a new "Come On Down" guy a few years ago when the older one left.
