    Default In how dare they? news - Bob Barker snubbed from Price is Right 40th anniversary

    Well, I'm not fine with it and think CBS executives and Price is Right producers suck.

    Barker 'fine' with exclusion from 'Price' special


    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bob Barker hosted "The Price Is Right" for 35 years, but he wasn't invited to participate in the game show's 40th anniversary special.

    The 88-year-old TV personality says the show's producers "chose to ignore me, which is fine."

    The 40th anniversary special episode of TV's longest-running game show aired Tuesday morning and featured returning contestants from the past four decades. Barker is shown in several clips but was not invited to appear on the program or attend the taping.

    "They haven't even offered me a DVD," Barker said in an interview Tuesday. Show producers had no comment.

    Barker, a longtime animal activist who advised his viewers each day to "Help control the pet population: Have your pets spayed or neutered," thinks he was omitted from the anniversary show "because I have been critical of them for giving away prizes that I consider inappropriate."
    He complained to producers for awarding tickets to Sea World and the Calgary Stampede as prizes. Both organizations "are notorious for animal abuse," Barker said.

    (Sea World says on its website that "the animals in our care are content and healthy." The Calgary Stampede says it works with the Calgary Humane Society and the Alberta Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to ensure its animals receive proper care.)

    During his reign as host, Barker asked the show to stop giving away fur coats and leather jackets and they obliged.

    "We really became very careful about what we put on the show," he said. "Had I been the executive producer, they would not have even considered bringing me tickets to the Calgary Stampede of all things."

    Barker has donated millions of dollars to animal-rights causes since retiring from "The Price Is Right" in 2007. He was replaced by Drew Carey, who hosted Tuesday's anniversary episode.

    Barker's last appearance on the show — which is taped at CBS' Bob Barker studio — was in 2009.

    He insists he's fine with not being included in the anniversary episode, but said, "When you celebrate a 40th anniversary, you would think you'd have the fellow who did the show for 35 years there."

    Barker's first appearance on "Price" in 1972 was among the clips included in the anniversary special.

    Had he been invited to attend, he said he would have repeated his show-closing refrain about spaying and neutering pets.

    "That's my message on any occasion and every occasion," he said.
    Barker added that he had planned to watch the special but missed it: He had it down on his calendar for Wednesday.

    Do you think it was because of the sexual offender claims and him saying Drew Carey sucks?

    Bob Barker was TPIR. Shame on CBS for not including him.

    Wtf! Meh, maybe he might have been a bit cheeky with some gals. It's no excuse to not have him there! He was awesome when it came to awareness of spaying and neutering pets, as well as animal rights. When I was younger I started a whole spaying/neutering campaign for the stray cats in my neighborhood thanks to his daily statement! The strays just kept multiplying and of course people were feeding them but not doing anything else. My mother and I struck up a deal with a local vet to do cheap spay/neuter deals. We captured a lot of the cats humanly and brought them in. For all the kittens before we found homes. I'm not even a cat person! Even if Bob was a bit sassy at work, I love him. He IS the Price is Right! Fuck them for not including him. The Price is Wrong Bitch!

    CBS may be thinking more about how much they paid out for the sexual harassment cases.
