The thing about game shows is that once the sun sets on one legendary host, it rises once again with a new one and a fresh take on the previously established format. Many game shows, like Family Feud, Jeopardy!, and To Tell The Truth all have ushered in a new host a time or two due to various circumstances.

Although in most cases, it’s a smooth transition that feels pretty natural, other times it alienates the fan base and causes those to make teams for which host they prefer the most (looking at you, Jeopardy! folks.) With that in mind, we’ve decided to pose the question of who is the best game show host currently on television.

Take a look at our selection of game show hosts below and vote in the poll with your choice! Didn’t see your favorite host? Let us know who your favorite host is in the comment section!

Drew Carey - The Price Is Right
