Although he is already the host of The Price Is Right, Drew Carey has found time to star in another TV show!

He will be starring in and producing a new improvised sketch comedy series, which will debut next spring on the Game Show Network. All 40 episodes of the show will be taped on weekends at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Several of his cast members are also Drew Carey Show alum, such as Ryan Stiles, Chip Esten and Kathy Kinney.

Audiences will provide suggestions form the sketches instead of going off the producers' whim, a la Whose Line Is It Anyway?

"`Line' was structured and this show is a lot more free-form," said Drew, who also has no intention to "hog the stage."

He will be having special guests appear to compliment the rotating cast.

Would U watch?!

With news that MacGruber's Will Forte is leaving SNL, sources have confirmed that the sketch comedy show has hired three new comics: Vanessa Bayer, Paul Brittain, and Taran Killam (left to right above).

All three comedians come from an improv comedy background and in keeping Lorne Michaels' tradition alive, they all hail from Chicago.

You may recognize Killam as he's had a recurring role on How I Met Your Mother and has appeared on Scrubs.

Those are some big shoes they're filling! Good luck to the new cast members!
