Bob Barker Returns To “The Price Is Right” For 90th Birthday Celebration Special

Even though the Emmy Award-winning host of the famed CBS daytime game show was not invited to appear throughout the show's entire 40th milestone season, he will be returning to the Bob Barker Studios to celebrate his 90th birthday. Bob Barker will be coming back to The Price Is Right to make a one-show appearance to air December 12, on Barker’s birthday, during a weeklong tribute to the former host, which begins December 9. “Monday through Friday, we’re going to be doing pet adoptions, which is something Bob did on the show for years,” said executive producer Mike Richards in regards to what the plans for the special week entailed. Sadly, this episode will air during the daytime, instead of it being a nighttime special. 

On the special episode featuring Barker, the retired emcee will help place a puppy for adoption and participate in a special Showcase featuring prizes that honor the benefits of becoming 90. This should be a fun episode to watch and Barker’s return will remind viewers why he is among the best of the best when it comes to hosting game shows. The last time Barker made an appearance on the show post-retirement was in 2009 to promote his autobiography “Priceless Memories”.  This will mark the second time the show has honored Barker’s birthday, with the first dating back to 2003, celebrating his 80th birthday. Check out the full episode of the show in the video below and stay tuned for the special Price Is Right show this year on December 12.
