Proof positive he reads this forum.

Hopefully he thinks we're not quite "telephone pole screamers" but rather "road sign screamers"

I think he's a great host. He's not "playing Drew Carey". He hosts the show as someone who genuinely enjoys what he's doing, has a great ability to interact with people, and makes it fun.

  • Just leave the set; that’d be terrific.

If I did my math right, he’d be 84 in 2042 if he stays as long as Barker.  That would also be about the same age Barker was when he retired.

This is a total about face from when he was first offered the gig. He's improved his hosting skills compared to the first couple of seasons. I feel he's become a decent but not spectacular host.

The first few seasons of Drew were pretty rough and once Roger and Co left. Drew found his groove. He looks like he's having fun hosting the show. I hope he stays in good health to host the show as long as possible.

I agree Drew had a “going through the motions” phase when he first started where he was a little too dry. He’s made the show his own, although I think his delivery could be a little smoother at times during the Showcase, but I do love that his sign off calls attention to mental health awareness.
"I just wanna give a shoutout to my homies in their late-30s who are watching this on Paramount+ right now, cause they couldn't stay up late enough to watch it live!"

Now celebrating his 21st season on GSF!

This is honestly one of the few criticisms I have. He could be a little more excited when someone wins both showcases.

It feels like in the last 1-2 months of episodes, the staff as figured out how to time the show that they can leave a bunch more of the bits in. Not all of the bits land (I think it's Drew's nature to go too long with bits that don't work) but it's been about as close to Barker Era as one would be comfortable to get.
This signature is currently under construction.

I would in fact prefer a show with five pricing games, a longer showcase and then the end game, if it meant we didn't have half of the show as the quick decision games.

Also, maybe the show could get back some amount of time with Drew's filler chat portions where he explains "there's a second chance" or "this is like a puzzle" that doesn't really forward the narrative at all. I don't know what I'd do with the time but it feels like there's a lot of talking just for its own sake. In the main I think he bonds with the contestants very well, and that builds a great deal of goodwill for me.

Drew took a while to find his groove and I think it's a mix of both Roger and the old guard trying to make Bob's show with Drew as host and then overcorrecting to too much of Drew's weird sense of humor for the show to be at its best. There was a noticeable drop in Drew's energy during the 2020-21 season with no studio audience but the last couple seasons have been his best, IMO.
