Comedian Drew Carey will replace beloved game-show host Bob Barker as the new host of long-running program The Price Is Right.

Carey, the star of his own namesake sitcom and the host of improvisational comedy show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, was named retiring Barker’s replacement on Monday after weeks of speculation.

The comic confirmed he was the man for the job during a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman, which aired on Monday night.

Barker has been the host of the popular game show for the past 35 years.

Carey has suddenly become the new game-show king--he also hosts new primetime show The Power of 10.
