So sad and sudden, and he had just done a standup gig last night.

Thanks for the childhood memories Bob Saget with Full House and the early years of America's Funniest Home Videos, and also more memories in my teenage and young adult years as Future Ted on How I Met Your Mother.

While many of you grew up associating Bob Saget with Full House or America’s Funniest Home Videos, being the game show-obsessed, 2000s kid that I am, I best remember him as host of NBC’s 1 vs. 100, which is probably my favorite primetime game show ever. He will be missed dearly, and my condolences go out to his family.

New York real estate heir and failed fugitive Robert Durst, the subject of the HBO documentary series The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, has passed away from natural causes at age 78.

And as Alfonso said last spring after the passing of Bernie Madoff, I do not want to wish ill of the dead, but I hope Robert Durst brought plenty of ice water to where he is heading.

I remember also watching him on 1 vs 100... yet not the non-Saget hosted GSN version of that show

Wow. I just saw the article about Louie's health a few days ago, and I thought he might be able to get through this.
It's another Adam who is another recapper for another game show on another site.

Fan of The Price is Right since the 1990's, my early childhood...and really happy that summer break was a thing.

I've seen in one or two places it was related to the coronavirus, but Meatloaf's health had been on the decline for the past several years, about a half decade or so.

While he's been a pretty big deal in other areas, his version of the National Anthem in 1994 was top notch.


Saddened to see Louie Anderson go.  Even though he's sixth in FF hosting rankings, I tuned into his version several times when it ran (can't believe it's been a couple decades).  Prior to this version of the site, the hope of the show returning to the "classic version" in terms of "first to 300" were more than legit.  While I was glad that they finally returned to that format, I pretty much never turned the TV off whenever Louie's Feud was on.  The show was off the air for nearly a half decade, and despite a lot of the results, it was alright, and Anderson did okay with what he had to work with.  Also, he was rather decent in terms of his stand up.
