Barker's return will air on December 12, 2013, but will be pre-taped on November 5th. Rumor has it that Barker will be presenting a very special showcase.
CBS has announced that The Price Is Right will also be honoring Barker all week (Dec. 9-13) having pet adoptions and special announcements on the humane treatment of animals, a cause that is very close to Barker's heart. Barker always ended each taping of The Price Is Right with a reminder to the public to always spay and neuter your pets. He has been active promoting animal rights for decades.
Barker hosted The Price is Right for 35 years before he retired and Drew Carey took over as the host of the longest running game show in history.
This will be his second appearance on the show since his hosting days. Barker appeared in 2009 to promote his new book, an autobiography titled, "Priceless Memories."
Happy 90th birthday, Bob Barker!
