For OVER 50 seasons, The Price is Right was filmed in Television City.

On March 8, 2023, it was announced that The Price is Right was moving its production from Bob Barker Studio 33 in Television City to Haven Studios in Glendale.

Television City is also home to Dancing With the Stars, The Young and The Restless and American Idol.
On June 26, 2023, The Price is Right filmed its final episode at Studio 33.
