Legendary Bob Barker is returning to his old stomping grounds!
CBS has announced it will be honoring Barker on The Price Is Right with a week of shows from Dec. 9 - Dec. 13.

Each day will feature pet adoptions, a cause near and dear to Bob's heart. (You know how he likes to remind everyone of the importance of having your pet spayed or neutered.)

On Thursday of that week (Dec. 12), Barker will surprise the studio audience by making a rare appearance on The Price Is Right, which is his 90th birthday.
He'll even get to present a special showcase! (The episode has already been taped.)
We're happy to see that Barker seems to have patched things up with the show. Last year, he was not invited to participate in the 40th anniversary events, telling AP that producers "chose to ignore me." Harumph!
