A Cuisinart coffeemaker package passed away today on The Price Is Right in a devastating train accident. The televised carnage leaves the extended family hopeful that they can ascertain grounds for removal, provided they keep out of hot water. One could chalk this up as part of the steep price to pay for appearing on television, but others have argued it amounts to little more than a hill of beans.

Very sad. I didn't watch her on the Dick Van Dyke Show much, but I watched her own show all the time and still do. RIP and thanks for the good memories.

Mary encapsulated beauty, charm and talent like few could. Iconic but she sure had the image that she didn't think she was.

I still can't believe she's no longer with us! For many of us who are fans of this incredible lady her death is no doubt very heartbreaking! I would never imagine that I would say these words: RIP Mary Tyler Moore.  :cry:
