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