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


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-second season debuting later this month.
