Bob Barker Returned to The Price Is Right in the Year’s Most Charming April Fools’ Surprise

He's still got it

Most of us were tired of April Fools' hijinks before the day even arrived, but in addition to yesterday's seemingly endless spree of high-profile pranks, there were a few real winners.

Chief among them, on TV at least, was Bob Barker's return to The Price Is Right, which he retired from hosting in 2007 after more than 40 years. 

At 91, Barker's obviously moving a bit slower these days, but he still has a singular warmth and ability to connect with both the crowd and his contestants. He hosted the show's opening bid on Wednesday and a pricing game before handing the mic back to host Drew Carrey.
