Sad, sad, very sad. But, we have to just thank Bob for 35 great years. It's been a hell of a run. The show can never be the same without him, but I hope it can go on. It's the best game show there is. They better pick somebody really good.
Just a brief return from my month or two message board hiatus, all four of them, but I had to comment on this.
Price was the first show I started watching regularly as a kid. At 4, being mesmerized by the lights and big wheel, then later on in life when I Was sick at home, and even later still, watching it during study hall or lunch at high school with my portable TV and a bunch of us crowded around it quietly cheering people on.
I have two CBS connections, and I'm going to lightly pester them like crazy to see if they can get me behind the scenes for Bobs last show for picture opportunities. Already saw it once two years ago for a Christmas show, but this is a TV Event that must be attended
Hmm... Charles Schultz passed the day after he retired, and after 50 years of working on the Peanuts. Lets hope the same doesn't happen to Bob after 50 years of TV.
Yeah, when I was a kid, both of my parents worked long hours and my brother and I would go to my grandparents every day (for the summer) - and every day at 11am, we'd watch The Price is Right while my grandmother prepared lunch.
Man, I remember re-enacting some of the games with my brother and another friend. It's funny how I fondly remember a game show like I remember Sesame Street.
