Rosie Taking on Price is Right?

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Daytime, Games, CBS, Gossip, Rumors,

Rosie O'Donnell Well, it’s been rumored that Rosie O’Donnell may take over for Bob Barker on The Price is Right, but Bob himself confirmed during Friday’s Daytime Emmy awards that a meeting is in the works. Bob said, “I believe they’re going to have a meeting with Rosie. She knows the show. There’s no doubt in my mind she could do the show.” Wow, what about the other Price hopefuls, Todd Newton, George Hamilton and Mark Steines? The search landed these three in the finals, but seems CBS is dragging its heels and O’Donnell is coming in as a late entry. Question is, will she win the coveted game show hosting gig? Given her loud mouth and strong views (no pun intended for The View, but hey, it works), you’d think she wouldn’t be a very popular choice. Then again, what better job to keep her quiet than a game show? She has to stick to the job at hand, with no opportunity for political discussions or room to view her opinions. It may just be the perfect job for her. Will viewers tune in? Given Barker’s departure, it seems that any replacement is going to take some getting used to. Stay tuned to see how Rosie’s “meeting” went. Given that Bob’s last show just aired, CBS had better get things in gear and find a new host.
