CBS Will Send Bob Barker Out in Style

Some of my earliest memories involve watching Bob Barker on "The Price is Right" in my grandma's living room, so I'm glad to see that CBS is sending the 83-year-old host off in style before his retirement this year. First, he'll be hosting a special primetime episode of the show, "The Price is Right Million Dollar Spectacular," on May 16. Then, the next night, the network will air a special tribute to Barker's 50 years in show business, including Barker's reminiscences and clips from classic "The Price is Right" games. I'm hoping for lots of Plinko.

CBS is also starting up a new edition of its "15 Seconds" YouTube video series all about Barker. They're hoping to collect a batch of 15-second tributes to Barker, some of which will be broadcast during the primetime specials or during a daytime episode of "The Price is Right." I can't wait to see what people come up with — and besides, isn't it time you taught your grandma how to make a YouTube video anyway?

CBS still hasn't named a replacement host, though George Hamilton is the latest name floating around. The network also hasn't said when Barker will tape his last show, so there's still time to get to LA and have Bob tell you to spay and neuter your pets in person.

To watch Neil Patrick Harris explain the "15 Seconds" tribute,

It won't be the same!!! :cry: I love old cantakerous Bob! Plus, I love all he has done for animal rights. My friend went to see TPIR a few years ago and apparently, just because you are in the audience, doesn't mean you will get called. There is a niche you have to fill....part of a big group (church group, family reunion), military, pretty girl, and something else. Now, this is just a theory of his, but after he told me that I TOTALLY see it. My favorite is the dice game. It seems so damn easy.

I really wanted to go see The Price is Right before Bob leaves but its way too crazy. Its nearly impossible to see a show. I live by the studio and people start waiting there the evening before to get in! I must say, The Price is Right will never be the same...

it's a question i ask myself everyday, kscincotta. who will be able to fill Bob's shoes? I hated the Mario Lopez rumor and George Hamilton is an ok name to float around. i just don't know how to cope with this loss.

The Price is Right and Bob Barker have been part of my life forever (or so it seems). I'll miss him too.
