CBS aired the final episode of TPIR hosted by Bob Barker. It was such an event that CBS aired it twice that day. It aired in its usual morning slot and had an encore showing in prime time. Barker signed off by thanking the audience for 50 years. After auditioning many hosts, Drew Carey was chosen and we all know the rest.

Barker came back to TPIR three times after retiring. To promote his book, to celebrate his 90th birthday and as an April Fools stunt where he hosted the first IUFB and the first game, Lucky Seven.  Drew starts his 13th year as host of TPIR in September.
