    Barker takes final kisses of 50-year TV career


    Bob Barker signs off after his final Showcase on "The Price is Right."

    Blowing kisses to the camera, Bob Barker signed off on 35 years on "The Price Is Right" and 50 years in daytime TV in the same low-key, genial fashion that made him one of daytime TV's biggest stars.

    Barker, who had said before the taping on Wednesday of his final appearance that he would try to act as if it was "just another show," stuck to that promise. He ended the program as he always has, signing off with the words: "Help control the pet population, have your pets spayed or neutered. Goodbye everybody."

    After the cameras stopped rolling, he told the studio audience, "I thank you, thank you, thank you for inviting me into your home for more than 50 years. I'm truly grateful and I hope that all of you have enjoyed your visit to 'The Price Is Right.' "

    Man I loved that show. Bob Barker was the man. I wonder how long the show will live on without him...

    The end of an era. I've watched the show my whole life.
    Did they ever decide who would be taking over as the new host?
