Confused Bob Barker can't retire, I love to watch the price is right, and Happy Gilmore. Besides I thought that he was like 300 years old and immortal. lol

Why the excitment???

I seriously thought they'd be wheeling Bob Barker out on his death bed to do Price is Right. I wonder if the show will go on, or if anyone will care for that matter?

Ok, so maybe I did over react just a bit, but regardless I love to watch the game show because he was just a good host. He didn't need big fancy lights or a band or anything. It was all Bob Barker. And with him getting out of the act, I doubt anybody would take on the part ot fill his shoes. And his role on Happy Gilmore=awesome.

My mother said that she heard the show is going to continue with a new host; to which I replied, "cancelled."

No matter what happens, it's the end of The Price is Right.

Yeah I'll agree with that 100%, it will definately kill the price is right. and moreover a chunk of American Game Shows will be gone forever. Unless they get somebody really cool to host the show, Ummm like Superman or something lol.

I have a bad feeling that they'll also update all the sets and such and the whole feel of the show will be different. If that's the case, count me out.

Yeah. Imagine TPIR with a rock music theme song or something. It just ain't right. After 35 years of keeping everything the same, changing it now would just be wrong. But with Bob gone I bet they make all sorts of changes and hail it as "The New Price is Right" or something. That sort of thing NEVER works. I hope they're smarter than that. But like I said, whatever happens, I think it's the end. Just the shock of the change of not having Bob there is gonna bring ratings way down. And we all know how TV stations are. They'll pull the plug right away without giving it so much as a chance.

The UK version got a new presenter and the format still remains the same as it has done for the past few years.

Yes, but let's not forget about the True Hollywood Story that told us about what a jerk Bob is. He's also been charged with sexually harassing the models on Price. . Triste

Yeah right, a man with all of his money wouldn't need to harass the girls on the show, he could go to any random mall and talk to a girl for like ten minutes and then wham, he would get lucky.
