Bob Barker to return to The Price Is Right (for one night only)

Bob BarkerTelevision icon Bob Barker will be returning to the game show that made him famous for a cameo appearance on April 16 alongside regular host Drew Carey. The appearance is serving as a promotion for his upcoming autobiography Priceless Memories.

Granted, I haven't watched the show since the 1970's (although I hear Drew Carey is doing a good job), but I think his appearance is going to somewhat overshadow Carey (for example, the studio in which The Price Is Right is filmed is now called the Bob Barker Studio). There are a myriad of people who still associate Barker with that show. It would be like when Johnny Carson stopped by Letterman's CBS show. As an analogy, who do people remember most as the host of Family Feud, Richard Dawson or Richard Karn?

More power to Barker for taking on a grueling schedule like a promotional tour at his age. Price-enthusiasts, mark your calendar.

I got a advance copy of "Priceless Memories"
What a great read! Bob recounts some of the most funny and some of the saddest moments of his life as well. If you are a Bob Barker fan this is MUST READ material. If your not a fan, read the book and you just might reconsider.
Thanks for sharing some of your adventures with us Mr. Barker!

Some people still associate The Price is Right with Bob Barker. They sound more comfortable with him than the current host Drew Carey hosting it.

The Carson/Letterman analogy is inaccurate.

Leno:Carson::Letterman:Sajak

Although somehow, I don't think that sentence would have the same impact if it started "Imagine Sajak walking in..."

Pet peeve alert."Myriad of people" is incorrect. Myriad means many. Should be "myriad people." Now back to Bob.
