THE PRICE IS RIGHT, daytime television's most-watched program, celebrates a milestone with Drew Carey's 1,000th episode, Friday, Dec. 7 (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Carey took over the hosting duties of television's longest-running game show on Oct. 15, 2007. To celebrate, the episode will feature some of Carey's favorite things as prizes, including a Vespa similar to the one he rides, trips to his favorite locations such as Brazil and his hometown of Cleveland, and a home theater system with some of his favorite DVDs, such as "The Big Lebowski" and "The Producers." And, since no episode of THE PRICE IS RIGHT would be complete without a chance to win a new car, one showcase will feature a BMW chosen by Carey.
"Drew has spent the last 1,000 episodes infusing THE PRICE IS RIGHT with his own unique brand of humor and fun, and the fans love him for his enthusiasm," said Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, Daytime, CBS Entertainment. "The CBS Daytime Family is so fortunate to have him and grateful for his contribution to the continued success of the #1 show in Daytime."
"Drew is truly the ideal host for THE PRICE IS RIGHT," added Mike Richards, Executive Producer for THE PRICE IS RIGHT. "He's genuine, funny and loves to see the contestants win. 1,000 episodes is an amazing accomplishment and we're lucky he's a part of this great American institution."
THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the longest-running game show in television history, is hosted by Drew Carey. Produced by FremantleMedia North America, THE PRICE IS RIGHT is broadcast weekdays (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.
CBS Daytime has been #1 in the daypart for 26 consecutive years, featuring a lineup that is a balance of dramas, game shows and talk. In addition to THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the Network's daytime lineup includes game show LET'S MAKE A DEAL, television's #1 daytime drama THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, as well as THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, and the popular daytime show THE TALK.
