“First, I want to say congratulations and thank you to all the wonderful people responsible, past and present, on the 50th season of The Price Is Right,” former host Bob Barker said in a statement. “The show has the most enthusiastic and fun audience that one could ever ask for. They truly were and are the heart and soul of the show. I had the pleasure of working with a dedicated and talented cast and crew for 35 great years. Particularly close to my heart was the ability our vast popularity gave me to remind our entire audience daily about the importance of spaying and neutering your pets. It was an incredibly memorable ride! Once again, congratulations to The Price Is Right on 50 historic years!! Here’s to 50 more!!”
