Come On Down! You're Bob's Last Contestant On The Price Is Right!

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Today, after 35 years of showcase showdowns, the beloved Bob Barker films his final installment of the iconic game show, The Price Is Right.

Fans pilgrimaged from all corners of the planet to sleep on the streets of CBS Television City and bid adieu to the white-haired wonder and his many, magic games.

We'll miss you, Bob, with your well-wishes for spayed and neutered pets, your sexualicious harassment with the Barker's Beauties, and that adorable little microphone you carry. Thanks for all the Plinko.

Mr. Barker's successor has not yet been named, but I hope it's Sarah Silverman. She can host anything. Today's taping is slated for broadcast 6/15.

PLINKO! and the actual retail price... after the jump...
