Storyline

Running for over 30 years, this popular game show had a wide variety of contests and games, all with the same basic challenge: guess the prices of everyday (and some not-so-everyday) items. The contestants whose estimates were the closest would win the prizes and move on to more difficult games with even bigger prizes. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

By late 1987, when Barker took over as Executive Producer of the program, he announced he would stop dyeing his hair and let it return to its natural gray color, a move almost unheard of at the time. He was met with resistance by CBS, many of the sponsors on the show, as well as Mark Goodson Productions. However, once they saw that the ratings didn't drop and all the fan mail that approved of his new hair, they stuck behind Barker and allowed him to go ahead with the move. See more »

Next Host Calling- One More Emmy For Bob
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Time has robbed us of the greatest TV game show host - of course I mean Bob Barker. Yes, he has retired while he is still young at heart to all of us TPIR fans. He is a good piece of the reason this show is so successful. His off-beat sense of humor always comes through- imagine Rosie O'Donnell to replace him? Bob is still toying with us. Now I heard my old buddy Drew Carey might be the guy. I hope so, Drew would be good as long as Mimi(from his old show) isn't a new model.

People, namely audience & contestants are the rest of the reason. It is watching these people & their reactions when they win that makes this show a success too. This show has a formula that never goes stale. The audience is always diverse & have a special magic created only by the camping on the sidewalk outside CBS.

Bob Barkers job is as close to a real Santa Claus as you can get. In the last few years, the rotating models formula has proved that all you need from the models is to look good. The announcers are now numerous during the shows run- from Olsen to Proddy to Burton & now to Rich.

After attending two tapings, live, the show is done just as quickly as it airs on television, only during the breaks Bob talks with the audience taking on all questions. There were no re-takes by Bob when I finally saw him live as he is really smooth & professional. The production team is amazing & very professional & courteous to everybody.

After 35 years, the show is still a joy because we like to watch happy people & enjoy Bob Barker. I am ready to replace him, & I am a little younger. I'd love to be a real life Santa Claus too. CBS has been kind enough to review my offer, but since I have kept my talents well hidden, they have turned me down.

I have been accidentally honored by CBS as Drew Careys first show airs on my birthday.

I went to Hollywood during May & was on camera May 31st. Even though it is nice there the Price sets are looking pretty worn. I'd want a new studio, sets & move the show closer to my home town if I hosted. Visit my original home town in my review of the movie "Saratoga Trunk" here on IMDb.

Thank you CBS, Drew Careys debut as host is on my birthday, October 15, 2007 on air. Good Luck Drew, you beat me out of this job fair & square.

My new show closing to replace Bob Barker is : "Help control the political population, have all your politicians spayed or neutered, Good bye everybody!"
