This Day in History: The Price is Right Premieres (9/4/72) - 2014 Edition

We go back to this day in history in 1972 when CBS debuted the "New" Price is Right with former Truth or Consequences host Bob Barker!

The show was a re-tooling of the Bill Cullen gameshow from the 50s and 60s with the addition of pricing games along with bidding on items.

It would become a huge hit and Barker would host the daytime version for 35 seasons and over 500 episodes.

Drew Carey hosts it now, with the forty-third season debuting later this year.
