Outstanding Game Show Host:

Ben Bailey, Cash Cab
Alex Trebek, Jeopardy!
I’m excited about The Price is Right being nominated. You know, at first, since Bob was leaving... and since it would from then on be an all-Fremantle job, I was fearing changes would be made that I wouldn’t like at all and wouldn’t give the show justice. But I’ve been for the most part thrilled with the show this season. I would love it if they won this year. I wouldn’t throw a fit if Cash Cab won but this year I think Price is more deserving.
Wow. I’m kind of glad Wheel of Fortune was not nominated this year. Sure, I love Wheel, but this show in the past several years has just gone way too over the top with adding all the extra stuff they’ve added. It’s just gotten to be too much for me. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised next season if they had sacks of money falling from the ceiling. From what I’ve seen this season, Jeopardy! thankfully hasn’t been as much of a disappointment. I wouldn’t be disappointed if they won this year for best show either. Temptation has been a major disappointment in my eyes and I'm glad that wasn't nominated either. I enjoy Merv Griffin's Crosswords but I don't see it much as Emmy-winning material at this point.
I wouldn’t say that Pat Sajak is doing a bad job on Wheel these days but at the same time I don’t think that he’s Emmy worthy right now. Alex from what I’ve seen this season seems to be doing as good a job as usual, but this year I am rooting for Ben Bailey. I think he is doing a great job on Cash Cab and I think he deserves it this time. I still think Price should win over Cab as far as best show goes, but I still think Ben is a good host. And as for Drew fans like myself… there’s always next year. There’s always next year.
