Yesterday, CBS announced that Bob Barker, host of 'The Price Is Right', will retire in June of 2007 after 50 years on TV, 35 of which as host of the show. He will be 83 years old when he retires.
This is definetly an old school show that I'm so suprised is still on the air today. He, and his show, is a TV icon. I remember watching him as a kid, and when I was home sick from school. All the classic games and prizes and the vibe of the show really take you back to TV's yesteryears.
According to CBS, they are looking for Bob's replacment.....the new host will have to know the details of over 80 different games.
I wonder if they plan a renovation/update of the set? And I wonder if anyone will watch without Bob?
