Most people who remember D-Day usually know that phrase usually means June 6, 1944. That is the day where Allied Forces stormed Omaha Beach and other beaches at Normandy turning the tide of World War II.

But for game show historians, D-Day approaches next Monday. D-Day means "Drew-Day". That is when Drew Carey takes over the microphone at the Bob Barker Studio and officially becomes the host of "The Price is Right."

And for a network who, until recently, couldn't market the host search to save its own butt, it has been finally teasing the fans in the right way. Last week, CBS and officially released pictures of the newly redesigned set. And the official pictures look great. The pictures show both the construction of the set and the pictures of the new studio and redesigned logo.

Does it whet my appetite? You bet. I hope CBS will market the heck out of Drew and the show over the next week or so.

This is going to be the most anticipated premiere this fall. You will probably have the fanboys who will say things (probably after one show) like "He isn't Bob" or "He won't make it."

I say to them the following: Yes, he isn't Bob. And yes, he isn't my personal choice. But the reports say from tapings that he is growing into the role. So give the guy a chance.

Regis Philbin always joked that he saved ABC in 2000 with Millionaire. Will Drew Carey, with Power of 10 at night, and Price during the day, be the savior of CBS?

That is all up to you out there.

Jason Block is looking forward to the next trip to TPIR. Leave some love at
