Bob BarkerIf anyone thought Bob Barker was going to miss being on stage at The Price is Right, then they'd be wrong. At least if you listen to Bob; he not only thinks he left "at just the right time," but is keeping himself extremely busy.

Barker spoke to the Long Beach, CA Press-Telegram recently, and he explained that "I enjoyed the show right up to the last minute of the last show. But, I don't miss it so much that I want to go back and do it again. I think I'm going to be very happy in retirement." He's currently working with various animal-rights organizations and is writing an autobiography, which he expects to be out late this year (ah, the publishing world moves quickly when they have to, know what I mean?).

As for how his successor, Drew Carey, is doing, Barker told the P-T that he tunes in every so often and catches a couple of games. "I think that he's doing a good job," he said. "I really do." I agree with him. Drew is doing a good job; but no one will match Barker's run, will they?
