LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Bob Barker, host of ``The Price Is Right,'' returned to Los Angeles on Tuesday, nearly a week after undergoing prostate surgery.

Barker, 78, will rest at home until Aug. 19, when taping resumes on the CBS game show that he has hosted for 30 years, said his publicist Henri Bollinger.

Barker underwent surgery July 10 in Washington, D.C., to ease discomfort from an enlarged prostate. Doctors expect him to fully recover, Bollinger said.
