Bob Barker's Farewell Show

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Fans of "The Price is Right" lucky enough to get inside the CBS studio in Los Angeles today will be saying goodbye to a legend.

CBS always sends out more tickets than there are seats and that's why fans camped out early and came from as far away as Canada to pay tribute to the legendary Bob Barker. He's hanging up the microphone after after 35 years as host of the giveaway game show.

One fan from Florida says he wouldn't give up his ticket even if he were offered ten grand for it. Another just wants to plant a kiss on Barker's right cheek, a tradition among women contestants.

These are the die-hard fans, some of whom feign illness to stay home and watch, or who have TVs in their bathrooms.

Barker, says another camping fan, has become part of American
culture.

    We will miss you Bob! TV game shows will never be the same. I have watched your show since I was little. Now, I'm 38 and I watch with my husband's 91 yr old grandmother. She says that she never thought she would get to see you on TV again. We wish you the best in whatever you decide to do. May God continue to bless you.

    The end of a TV era has come, Bob Barker is leaving the Price is Right. I always said that the day he passed away should be declared a national day of mourning due to him being more well-known than most political figures in our society. He has done so much work in the human and animal rights areas, and is more than a television personality, he's a great human being. It is, indeed, a sad day for America. I wish you the best Bob in the rest of your life.
