Bob Barker’s ‘The Price Is Right’ is legendary — so legendary that it’s getting its very own TV channel.
Episodes from the Bob Barker era will be the only content on a brand new channel from Fremantle and Pluto TV.
The channel, titled The Price Is Right: The Barker Era, is set to launch on December 1 and it will provide 24/7 broadcasts of the game show.
The episodes will include fan-favorite ones and also ones that haven’t been seen since their original air dates.
Bob Barker’s final show with the series was in 2007. He started back in 1972.
During his run, he earned 17 Emmy Awards — including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Emmys in 1999.
Drew Carey has been hosting for the last 13 years.
“The Price is Right is classic feel-good TV and a part of television history with beloved host Bob Barker at the helm,” said Amy Kuessner, SVP of Content Strategy and Global Partnerships at Pluto TV.“These iconic game shows have not been televised in 40 years, and Pluto TV is thrilled to be the exclusive home of these classics, as they bring our viewers back in time to a treasured era of television.”
Let’s hope 96-year-old Bob will be getting some serious checks from this channel — he still deserves. They should do the same for the late Alex Trebek and ‘Jeopardy!’
