Thanks for the Memories

I don't remember Merv Griffin in movies, and, until I read the article, didn't know that he was the brain behind Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune. All I really knew about him was that, in the pre-cable era, when I was home sick from school, he was funny and entertaining and kept me from total boredom.

Thank you for that, Mr. Griffin. Rest in Peace.

I remember his show quite well... funny how we've lost him, Don Ho and Mike Douglas in the last year or so... all those 70s talk show hosts... John Davidson, beware...

Rick Moranis used to do a hilarious Merv impression on SCTV... "Ooooo... we'll be right back!"
