Drew draws big numbers


If there were worries that "The Price is Right" would suffer an audience loss from the retirement of Bob Barker, those worries have been laid to rest. CBS is crowing loud and clear about the ratings for new host Drew Carey in his first week on the show. Compared to same week last year, Price was up +8% in adults 25-54 (1.3 from 1.2), +10% in adults 18-49 (1.1 from 1.0), +7% in women 25-54 (1.6 from 1.5), +8% in women 18-49 (1.3 from 1.2), +11% in men 25-54 (1.0 from 0.9) and +14% in men 18-49 (0.8 from 0.7). CBS says "The Price is Right" ranked as the #1 daytime program among men 18-49 and men 25-54 last week.
