I read SOD today the rumor is that there is a possibility that Doug or Jeff Treatcha may be replacing Bob Barker and adding The Price is Right to his schedule. There is also Jerry Douglas talk too. Although he is denying it, there is talk that Jerry will be cast as the new Mikey on OLTLI guess Y&R fans have been trying to scare up another role for Jerry.
Quote nyaccent: Didn't Doug Davidson host the night time version of the price is right once........?
I'd like to see him replace Bob Barker.....but not leave Y&R while he does it...
Yes he did host the night time version. I guess they liked his work enough to consider him as Bob Barkers's replacement. They liked his ability to keep the show moving. They said that the studio's where they tape Y&R and Price is Right are across the hall from each other. So, if Doug wanted, he could do both.
I hope Doug doesn't leave Y&R! I think he is so great! not to speak of good-looking he is "fantbulous!" I may go back to watching Price is Right again. I like Mr. Barker but I just tired of it. I wish hi good luck if this is where he is going.
I remember whem Doug did the nighttime version and I thought he did a very good job. I would be all for him being the new host if it did not take him off Y&R. Bob Barker is definitely passed his prime. I was glad to see he retired. I hope he enjoys his retirement.
