Quick Takes

Bob Barker comes home

March 27, 2009|Associated Press

Bob Barker returned to "The Price Is Right" -- and this time he was the showcase.

After nearly two years in retirement, the 85-year-old former game show host was invited to come on down to "The Price Is Right" to promote his upcoming memoir, "Priceless Memories," due out April 6.

Barker on Wednesday once again stood on the set where he had worked for 35 years. The silver-haired host appeared alongside successor Drew Carey near the finale of the show, which airs April 16, to present two prize showcases that were somewhat stretched to promote Barker's memoir.

Barker taped his last regular episode -- his 6,586th -- of the popular CBS game show in June 2007, retiring after five decades on national television.
