The ink is barely dry on the announcement that he will front CBS' Power of 10, but already there is talk that Drew Carey is the latest contender for the Price Is Right hosting gig. Both the Eye and TPIR producer FremantleMedia North America (aka ReallyNeeds New Name) met with the comic, sources tell Variety. Should Drew's name get drawn and Power of 10 succeed, he would likely tackle double duty.

Bob Barker, meanwhile, clarifies for the AP that his après-Daytime Emmys comments should not be seen as a ringing endorsement of Rosie O'Donnell as a TPIR host wannabe. "I have not been asked for my opinion, nor have I expressed one," Barker maintains. "I think there are several people who could do the show, and Rosie is certainly one of them." But for him to cast his lot one way or the other, he says, would be "terribly presumptuous."
