Dancin' Dave Price may be the next Bob Barker

15614__price_lJust one day after Bob Barker announced his pending retirement, the New York Daily News has reported that morning news personality Dave Price may be the one to take over as host of The Price is Right next year. Get it? The Price is right! Potentially.

Until April, I had no idea who this guy was. Then a beautiful thing happened: "Dance Friday" on the CBS morning news. After staying up all night for no reason, a jarring visual of Dave shakin’ his thang on my screen roused me from a Diet Pepsi/Cheetos stupor long enough to catch this once-in-a-lifetime footage of the final installment of Dance Friday. The man extols Olivia Newton-John and attempts to make out with the rising sun. Thank you, Dave Price, for becoming my unintentional-comedy god that morning.

So yeah, I’m majorly biased in favor of Price. He’s not exactly a game show expert, but he’s a total goofball who just might grow on you. What do you think? Too soon?

    DAVE PRICE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    If you’re gonna have a tv weatherman take over TPIR hosting duties, why not Al Roker? And note I said “take over” and not “replace”. No-one will ever be able to replace Bob Barker.

    i used to watch dave price on channel 5 and then on channel 2 i miss dance friday. he’s fantastic and i would actually watch the price is right if he were hosting.

    Yes, Annie. Too soon.

    Ok. So apparently Moonvese has a sense of humor. A strange one, but a sense of humor. Dave Price. The “Price” is right. hehe.
    Tell you what, now get Adam Sandler so that he can say that “The Price is wrong!

    eww he was on Good Day LA for a while, never liked him.

    Actually, Dave Price would probably be a better host of The Family Feud. That dude O’herlihy sucks. I used to like that show.

    Let’s not even try to replace Bob Barker. What’s the point? Just cancel The Price is Right.

    He looks better for millionaire he has that geeky look.

    How about Pat Kiernan? He has two other game shows under his belt already (Studio 7 and World Series of Pop Culture)…. plus I’m fairly sure he’d be all for spaying and neutering your pets.

    Why would a smart and handsome man like Bob Barker want a geeky looking dork to try and fill his shoes….my boyfriend would be a better host. He’s funny, outgoing, good loooking, and has a long resume of television experience. Plus, he’s dreamed of hosting the ‘Price is Right’ since he was 13.

    I’m 36 and havewatched the ‘Price is Right’ for 30 years and if this geek starts hosting I’m gonna quit watching!!!!!
