Bob Barker -- The Price Is No Longer Right

10/31/2006 6:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bob Barker is hanging up the mic on "The Price Is Right."

The 82-year-old host of the show that has endured for an unbelievable 35 years says his last broadcast will be next June.

Barker has been on TV for half a century, beginning his career in 1956 by hosting "Truth or Consequences." Barker asked the first "Price" contestant to come on down back in 1972.

Our favorite Barker moment came when Evan, our coordinating producer at TMZ, won a car on the show and proceeded to do the "bull dance" on stage with Bob a few years ago. Unfortunately, he lost the showcase showdown.

Bob, that is so sad! You will be missed! I have watched Price Is Right since day one and totally enjoy it! It will not be the same without you!
I understand that you need to do it, but always wished I could be there to meet you too, like so many others do.

God Bless you Bob! I love you!

Just looked up your age and saw you will be 83. You GO guy! I also read that your birthday is one day after mine AND that you started your national TV career the very year I was born (1956). I am saddened to see you are retiring, my mother absolutely lives for your show every day. She is also a Dec. baby, 12-07-29, but her physical and mental health is not nearly as good as yours. The best to you in your retirement; you will be missed.
Very sincerely, Stephanie

I have to make an appearance on this show!
Bob's career wouldn't be complete
without meeting me and giving me a boat, a car
and helping put my face on a billboard in NYC!

U Know Who    

I am not sure if anyone on this site except myself and a few of the more incarcerated celebrities know this about Bob.

But "Bob Barker Industries" is the leading supplier of Hygiene Products etc to the United States Correctional Facilities. IE Jails and Prisons Bob Barker makes your soap, shoes, comb, toth brush..etc etc etc.. You get the picture.

So not only did he MAKE millions on television, but he WILL continnue to make many more millions on jailbirds. Go Bobby Boy!

Did someone say...buttplugs?    

Say what you will about this guy, but he at least made people aware of the uncontrolled pet population problem. So what if he liked to chase the young trim, makes money off of supplying products to inmates or votes Republican.
Spay or Neuter your dogs and cats!

EXACTLY!!!!! Morris the Cat! Bob Barker is a great game show host, latly it seems that people are getting more and more immature about people and how THEY want to live their lives, how come we don't see the people who complain about those people out and doing better for people? how come those people don't have jobs on T.V.?

I was on the Price is Right this summer, and I am so glad I went.
I am so disappointed to see him go. And, no, I am not a fat housewife! I'm single and hot!

Whoever commented for #5 & #6, GET A LIFE! You are both so ignorant and beligerent! (You'll probably need to look up the last "big word". Bob Barker is an American Icon. Thanks for the memories. May you have a long, enjoyable retirement.
