The fans have been camped outside CBS Television City this week for the chance to say goodbye to daytime TV legend Bob Barker. People have traveled from across the country in hopes of seeing Barker tape one of his farewell shows after 35 years as host of “The Price Is Right.”
And today’s the day of the last Barker taping.
I haven’t had any reason to drive down Beverly Boulevard this week, but I’m wondering if anyone has seen the lines, or better yet, if anyone knows anyone actually in line. Extra points if we can find someone blogging the experience.
The final original daytime episode of The Price Is Right will be broadcast Friday, June 15 (10 – 11 am, PT) on CBS. The episode will then be rebroadcast the same evening (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Episodes of the The Price Is Right hosted by Barker will rerun throughout the summer until the season premiere in the fall.
I, for one, have never been to a taping of The Price Is Right and I’m sad that I won’t ever get to go to one hosted by Bob.
