Game show legend Monty Hall presided over the various incarnations of Let’s Make a Deal for more than 20 years. Though the current version is a success for CBS, don’t expect Wayne Brady to stick around for that long.
In a recent interview, Brady expressed that he doesn’t want the job to go on and on and noted that Let’s Make a Deal has turned out to be a lot more consuming than he expected.
He told Beck/Smith, “Everything always turns out to be harder then I expect it to be. Whenever I tell myself, ‘Oh, I can do this in my sleep,’ it turns out to be more difficult than I imagined.”
The energetic performer also said, “To be honest, I have no desire to turn into the king of game shows. I consider myself an actor foremost, and a writer and singer, and I still tour and do Broadway shows.”
Brady previously hosted Don’t Forget the Lyrics for FOX but reportedly turned down the opportunity to do The Price Is Right and Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?. If given the chance, he’d like to take on a sitcom, but only if it’s truly funny and comparable to current standouts like Modern Family, 30 Rock or How I Met Your Mother (where he has guested a couple times, as Barney’s brother).
What do you think? Would you like to see Brady stay with Let’s Make a Deal or would you like to see a different host?
Hhhmmm; i love & would miss Wayne Brady GREATLY! i thoroughly enjoy watching the spontaneous ~ antics between him & Jonathan; but sounds like what fans think doesn’t seem to matter, to Wayne. Has there been a diagnosis of ADHD?
if he doesn’t want to be there then move on
Let’s make a deal is a show I watch every day.
If I can’t watch it then I tape it.
Please put it back on cbs at 10 am
I liked Wayne Brady as host, however, if he prefers to leave, that is his choice but I don’t want the show to be canceled. I love watching it each morning. I will miss seeing him because he is a much better host than Drew is on The Price Is Right.
I wish Wayne all the success he can get
I just want Wayne to be happy whatever it is he wants to do in life I’m just going to miss him in the morning that’s all, it’s a ritual you know? I wake up in the morning and me and my husband who’s bedridden watch Wayne every morning along with Drew right after you it’s the ritual but if he’s going to be gone and he’s happy then that’s what we want to we love you Wayne ,
