Larry Emdur confirmed as Price is Right host

Just try and stop him….

Larry Emdur is set to return to The Price is Right for Seven.

Emdur is a unabashed fan of the long-running game show, having hosted it in several versions before for Nine.

“When I was asked if I wanted to be involved in this new version, I think I was as excited as 20 showcase winners an an inflatable spa bath,” he joked.

Many readers have also supported his return to the show.

Price goes into production this week, ahead of its on-screen return next month.

There has been speculation Seven would return it to 5pm weeknights, but the network would arguably be wiser to move Deal or No Deal to that slot and put Price up against Nine’s Hot Seat.

News Limited reports the first episode will also serve as a dedication to Ian Turpie, who passed away earlier this month. A nice touch.

Audience tix will soon be available at priceisrightaudience.com.au

  1. HeyHey_Variety

    Hopefully The Price Is Right gets good ratings and Hot Seat still whips Deal or No Deal. Then Nine might copy Seven, putting a game show against Price. (Bring back Sale of the century)

  2. Love the Price is Right. So glad it’s coming back. Lets be honest here, Deal and Hot Seat has become boring and complacent. Time to have some fresh game shows be it old or new come to our screens. Price is perfect and Rich List would be good too.

  3. I wish they would give The Rich List another crack. Far more entertaining that DOND. I think The Rich List and Price Is Right would be a winning combination.

  4. Used to watch Deal for a time but can’t really see the challenge or brain power reqd to guess which case. Now watching M$HSeat. Great news Seven. Used to watch it way back. Will be watching DOND, 5 or 5:30. Give it a rerun on 7Two too.

  5. I couldn’t imagine anybody else hosting The Price Is Right… It was time foe this show to return…Deal Or No Deal should be axed…it’s had its day….

  6. Wow! It’s in production this week and it will be on-air next month?! That was quick. Must have been planning it for a while.

    Really happy about this. Will definitely strengthen Seven’s 5:00 hour which they don’t need to but will and now if they ever do need to put Deal or No Deal to rest, they will have a replacement show.

  7. I wonder what the format will be like in half hour (I rather an hour)? Would it be 3 pricing game, the showcase playoff and the showcase (price ordering part) Or 2 pricing games, showcase showdown (big wheel) and the showcase (price ordering part).

  8. I hope The Price Is Right airs in regional QLD cities. Today Tonight presently airs at 5pm in regional QLD. TT should move to 7TWO at 6:30pm so TPIR & DOND can air between 5pm-6pm on 7.

  9. This is without a doubt the best news I have heard in a long time. Yes, Seven should put DOND at 5pm and have The Price Is Right at 5:30 against Hot Seat.
