His final on-air appearance is still a week away, and already the Bobster is angling to reclaim his mike. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday after taping his last show, Barker said that since The Price Is Right is "having trouble finding someone" to step into his shoes, if a temporary fill-in is needed, "I would do it. I don't want to walk out on CBS... if they're in that position."

Reruns with Barker as host are slated to run throughout the summer, so it is unclear just how quickly TPIR needs to come up with its final answer. (Oops, wrong show.)
