And so the news comes this week that Bob Barker is leaving The Price Is Right. It’s hard to imagine anyone could replace him, though I’m sure there’s a Dancing With the Stars contestant who’d love to try. He’s been hosting this show for 35 years. Here’s his first appearance in 1972.
This clip, and many more amazing TPIR moments, are courtesy of the goldmine that is tpir.tv. Doesn’t it just warm your heartor, at the very least, make you want to get your pet spayed or neutered?
My favorite game show to analyze is Card Sharks. Honestly, I could go on about this all day. Instead, why don’t we just enjoy a clip, which really says everything for me.
The trailer for Emilio Estevez’s Bobby hit theaters last month, and it looks like someone’s been studying their Nashville. There’s a real Altman vibe to this film, and I’m just not referring to the fact that the cast list reads like a charity benefit.

How else am I going to get any play out of this Repo Man costume?
I’m not sure there’s a long, treacherous journey preceding Diddy’s new role as Burger King spokesman, but if there were a story like that, it would go better on a sesame seed bun.

And you know, Burger King is the tastemaker.
