Don't look for TV icon Bob Barker to come on down for The Price Is Right's 40th anniversary special, hosted by Drew Carey on Sept. 4 According to this week's TV Guide, the 88-year-old animal rights activist is furious with the CBS game show for giving out a prize package including a trip to the Calgary Stampede. Said Barker to TV Guide's Michael Logan:
"I am ashamed of the show and surprised at their complete disregard for the welfare of animals," says the 88-year-old Barker. "Were I still there, [such a] prize would never have been considered. We never did anything that condoned animal cruelty. Apparently, things have changed."
We’ve seen The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful stars make appearances on The Price is Right and now fans of The Talk’s Julie Chen and Holly Robinson Peete can look forward to them popping up on the long-running game show too. According to EW.com, Chen and Peete will appear on the April 6 episode of The Price is Right, hosted by Drew Carey. Fans will then see Carey drop in on The Talk later that same day.
WTF! The Price is Right's Drew Carey is developing a hidden camera show for CBS, but WTF! doesn't mean what most of us use it for online. It stands for "Wow, That's Funny!," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"WTF" shot a pilot presentation Saturday in which Carey and a troop of comedic agents wreck havoc in public places. The project combines a hidden-camera show with flash-mob tactics as the group pulls benevolent pranks on deserving citizens.
For instance, the group transforms a late-night truck stop into a five-star restaurant for long-haulers.
If you ask me, sometimes Hollywood just tries too hard to be hip. Not that I'd know anything about being hip.
Come On Down! Jack Wagner (Nick, The Bold and the Beautiful) is appearing on the March 6th episode of The Price Is Right.
