While the original incarnation of TPIR began on NBC back in 1956 with Bill Cullen as the host, it was Barker's version that firmly cemented the game show's place in pop culture history. Today at 11 am EST on CBS, current host Drew Carey will host a special 40th anniversary episode of TPIR, featuring some of the show's most memorable guests. Watch a teaser below!
