Ben Bailey Returning for ‘Cash Cab’ Revival
According to Deadline, not only is Cash Cab returning, but Ben Bailey is returning as host as well. Bailey responded to the news with:
“Holy #%$&! Cash Cab is back!” Bailey said. “Huge thanks to all the fans who pushed for the show (and for me) to come back! Never before has a comedian been so happy to go back to driving a cab. OMG, I think I left the meter running!”
Cash Cab originally ran from 2005 to 2012, with Ben Bailey hosting the traveling game show. Contestants would answer questions on the way to their destination in the cab. If they missed too many questions, they were kicked out. If they kept getting questions right, they earned money, leading up to a final question.
Not only was Bailey great as the host, he's also driving a cab through New York. Dear Alex Trebek, your move.
