Bye Bye Bob Barker

Tomorrow is the day we knew was coming, but secretly didn't believe would get here.

Emmy Award winner Bob Barker's final original daytime episode of THE PRICE IS RIGHT will be broadcast Friday, June 15 (11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, ET; 10:00-11:00 AM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. The episode will then be rebroadcast the same evening (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), leading directly into the airing of "The 34th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards (9:00-11:00 PM, live ET/ delayed PT), from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood .

After watching an advance copy of Bob's final show, it's everything you'd expect from the Price is Right. I'm not going to give away any spoilers, you need to watch the show yourself, but some of our favorite games are featured, amazing showcase showdowns, ton of confetti throughout the show and a nice send off from Bob.

Here are two clips. 1 and 2.

Episodes of the THE PRICE IS RIGHT hosted by Barker will rerun throughout the summer until the season premiere in the fall.

Barker is retiring after 50 years in show business and 35 years of hosting THE PRICE IS RIGHT, the longest-running game show in television history. He has won a total of 17 Emmy Awards -- 13 as TV host, three as Executive Producer of THE PRICE IS RIGHT and the Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award for Daytime Television in 1999. Currently, he is nominated for his 18th and 19th Daytime Emmy Awards. Barker was installed into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in June 2004.

Thanks Bob! You really made summers/sick days from school fun!
