“The Price Is Right” and “The Late Late Show” have switched hosts for a day – let's see if anybody notices
In a clip discussing the prank, Carey appraises Ferguson's stint on the long-running daytime game show as “fun and genuine.”
“It was really fun and genuine; and he cared about the contestants, he was really excited when they won,” Carey said of Ferguson.
“It's really a great feeling; it's surprising. I was like, ‘I'm not gonna care,’ but you really care!” Ferguson enthused.
For his part, Carey is using the prank a least partially bag on Ferguson's profession.
“Growing up, I always wanted to be a talk-show host, but then something happened to me: Success,” Carey cracks to the audience on the “Late Late Show” stage during his guest-hosting stint.
