Larry Emdur tipped for Price is Right reboot

Larry Emdur is reportedly set to return to the hosting role of a reboot of The Price is Right for Seven.

The network is tipped to return the show to a 5pm weeknight slot, as part of a double act with Deal or No Deal.

Emdur remains a fervent believer in the format, recently appearing on the US version hosted by Drew Carey. He recently told TV Tonight, “Nobody else gets it, but the former host of The Price is Right to be randomly called out to be asked to host a segment of the American Price is Right was unbelievable. I’ll dine out on that story for a long time.”

But he’s also a very busy boy.

Andrew O’Keefe told News Limited, “I think Laz has a bit on his plate at the moment but he does have a particular fondness for the razzle dazzle of the game show genre.

“(But) I think that the prices have risen considerably since he was last in a supermarket.”

Former Price is Right host Ian Turpie passed away on the weekend, aged 68.

Emdur hosted the show for Nine years on Nine.

    Channel Seven are reviving The Price is Right, so if we watch the show to get the ratings up. Nine might put another game show against The Price is Right at five o’clock….Like Sale of the Century.

    On the flip side, if Price goes good and Deal or No Deal continues to get bad ratings. Channel Seven just might axe Deal and put Price is Right on at 5.30.
