I heard clips from an interview with Bob Barker regarding the possibility of Rosie O’Donnel doing Price is Right.Ã‚Â He said something to the effect that “He thought Rosie could definately do it.”
Do what, exactly?Ã‚Â Say “come on down” and “spin the wheel, Shirley?”
In the recesses of our minds, most of us view the business of being a personality as darn close to lounging in the sand at the beach–in theÃ‚Â enlightenedÃ‚Â parts of our brains, we realize it’s more complicated than that.
But seriously–there’s a reason Bob could do his job until he turned ninety.Ã‚Â He doesn’t even have to introduce the merchandise for the audience.Ã‚Â Several broads caress it lovingly while a disembodied voice describes each bottle of motor oil as though you can’t find one in the local hardware store.
Can Rosie do the job?Ã‚Â Yes.Ã‚Â So can my five year old son.Ã‚Â Where do we sign up?

I can do it! I can do it! Sign me up! Please!
Let it die already. (And by it I mean both PIR and Rosie.)
Please no Rosie, please please please. I love my Price is Right. I don’t want to turn my back on it. Rosie is obnoxious. Please no Rosie!
I’m so bad…when I saw Bob being interviewed about Rosie, I turned to my husband and said, “Yeah, but Rosie might get in trouble for sexually harassing the Barker Babes too.” I don’t see her in that role.
Can’t imagine it for any game show. I couldn’t help but think if it was Vanna White who retired. Rosie manhandling those letters with a big goofy grin on her face? Shudder.
Ugh. Please make her go away.
I’ve actually heard of The Price is Right, but pride myself on never once having seen this show. Life is just too short and time is just too precious. Though I would probably give in and watch this if someone paid me to do it — and boy, the price really would have to be right…
Yikes. I heard the guy who played J. Peterman on Seinfeld was in the running too. He’d get my vote. Either that or just clone Bob Barker.
