As promised, Rosie O'Donnell met with The Price Is Right producers on Thursday – although the speculation that she'll replace Bob Barker as the show's host has been losing steam.

Asked on her blog how her interview went, O'Donnell replies, "we had a nice lunch" – but does not elaborate.

Another reader writes, "I see that Drew Carey's name has been thrown into the mix. Any comments?" Writes O'Donnell: "i love drew carey."

Barker started the buzz about O'Donnell replacing him when he said at last week's Daytime Emmys that he had "no doubt" O'Donnell would be a good host for the game show. But he backed off on Wednesday, telling the Associated Press: "I think there are several candidates who could do the show, and Rosie is certainly one of them."

O'Donnell herself sounded pessimistic about her chances in a recent video post on her blog: "I don't know if it's gonna work out," she told fans. "I just think it's a part of American nostalgia, and it's what America needs right now. It would be good for me, but I don't know if it's right for them."

And on Wednesday, Variety reported that CBS and producer FremantleMedia North America had been talking to comic Drew Carey about hosting the show. Carey is already set to host CBS's upcoming primetime quiz show Power of 10.
