CBS’s Emmy-Award winning “The Price is Right,” with new host Drew Carey, will have its 36th season premiere on Monday, October 15 (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT), on the CBS Television Network. Carey was recently named host of television’s long-running game show, succeeding former host Bob Barker, who retired in June after 35 years on the show.
The new season will start out with some exciting wins, as several contestants make some lucky spins on the big Wheel. Others have the chance to win some of the most expensive cars ever given away on the show, as well as trips to exotic locations and more amazing prizes. In addition, the familiar set has been refreshed to give it an updated look while keeping the recognizable “Price is Right” theme and appearance.
Carey, a stand-up comic turned actor and producer who is best known for having two hit shows simultaneously – “The Drew Carey Show” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” – is also the host of the Network’s “Power Of 10,” a high-stakes, primetime game show where contestants compete for the chance to win $10 million. He was also a producer and host of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” which continues to air in syndication.
“The Price is Right,” which won the 2007 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game/Audience Participation Show, is now in its 36th season and is television’s longest-running game show. It is a FremantleMedia North America production.
