The Price is Right Background

For 35 years, the immensely popular TV game show The Price Is Right was hosted by TV legend Bob Barker. Following Barker's retirement in 2007, actor and comedian Drew Carey (The Drew Carey Show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?) took over Price Is Right hosting duties. The long-running CBS game show has contestants trying to guess the retail prices of various items, and most famously The Price Is Right features the catchphrase "Come on down!" in which a member of the audience is invited to come up onstage to compete. Contestants on the show compete to win cash and glitzy prizes, like vacations,or cars, by guessing the actual retail pricing of merchandise

The show franchise began as a basic format television game show, but was revamped in 1972 when Bob Barker became the host. When Barker retired in 2007 Drew Carey became the new host of the show and he took it to new heights in terms of brand awareness and audience viewership.
