I'm kind of curious now how long it is.

Oh, if I had a nickel.

I chuckled when I saw this on his Facebook page tonight.



I'm betting he isn't chuckling about it. :D

Well, certainly someone had to ask...probably didn't appreciate it, did Dobbie, but still, it's satisfying to see someone call him on his bitterness.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Roger’s response is that, according to CBS, Drew wanted to bring in his own people. It sucks and it’s not fair, but that’s business and hardly unheard of.

In another thread he says he believes the network made a huge, expensive mistake and won’t admit it. The show seems to be doing just fine, but what do I know? It’s really too bad that he and the fanboys will never admit the show ran on autopilot for the last five or so years of Bob’s tenure. Remember all the showcases “that deal with the word __”?

Or all the Showcases that had generic cartoonish standees playing the male roles that would've otherwise been handled by the announcer.
The Game Show Forum: over 15 years of beating the **** out of the competition, and still going strong.

As opposed to nowadays, where most of the time they don't bother to give the showcases a theme at all.

Honestly, I would rather have that than the showcases from the last few years of bob's shows.

Unfortunately timing restraints mean these kind of showcases can't be played anymore...

Deadline posted an article that said filming on shows and movies won't resume until the fall at the earliest. I imagine the same applies for game shows.

Roger just posted a suggestion that the show should tape in Orlando- partly since they seem to be opening early, and partly because he doesn't think Drew would go, so they could get rid of him.

Why would Drew not go with them? Is he on a no-fly list or something?

(I seriously don't know what would possess this man to think a change in scenery would result in Drew not following. Is he that desperate?)
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

You're damn straight. Still pontificating about "his show" to the masses who hang on every word.  One would think that if his opinion was as revered as he seems to feel it is, he would have been scooped by another show when he was fired from Price and/or still finding work to this day as a consultant.

Well, what was he expecting? When his services became available there weren't a whole hell of a lot of shows in production, and he was no spring chicken either.

His shot at Drew notwithstanding, moving to Orlando wouldn't be a bad idea if it does come with cheaper costs like he said. Certainly wouldn't be the first daytime show to relocate to save money.
