The Price Is Right is a television game show format currently owned by the FremantleMedia wing of the RTL Group, originally created in 1956 by Bob Stewart, former employee of Goodson-Todman Productions in the United States.
The most popular version is currently airing in the United States. From 1972 to 2007, the show was hosted by Bob Barker. On October 15, 2007 Drew Carey debuted as the new host. The U.S. version, now in its 42nd season, is both a spin-off of a previously successful version and the seed for many international versions of the show.
