CBS has announced a firm date for the last episode of The Price is Right with Bob Barker as host. Back on October 31, 2006, Barker announced he would be stepping down from his game show duties after 35 years. New and old fans alike want to be sure that they don’t miss his goodbye and CBS is making it a bit easier.
Barker will tape his final episode of Price in the Bob Barker Studio in CBS’ Television City on June 6th. The episode will be aired on June 15th, not once but twice. The Tiffany network ran two primetime Price/Barker specials last week to solid ratings so the host’s last Price will air in its regular daytime slot and then be repeated in primetime at 8pm. The primetime airing will lead-in to the 34th annual Daytime Emmy Awards where both Price and Barker could pick up awards.
