Culture: HOLY HECK, ED MCMAHON DIED! He was 86.

  • He was most famous for being Johnny Carson’s sidekick. McMahon died last night after midnight Pacific time. Beyond Carson, he has a long, storied career as a television host, including “Star Search” and “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes.” And of course, there was the chance that he could drive down your road and hand you a check the size of your house. But, alas, no more. Peace out, brah. You’re an icon; you’ll be missed. source

Culture: The ultimate hype man, Ed McMahon, is in the hospital

  • He’s like 85. It sounds pretty bad. McMahon, that guy who said “Here’s Johnny” about 20,000 times in his life, has been in the hospital for more than three weeks with pneumonia and other medical problems. “Ed’s a big, strong, hearty guy and his family and I are hopeful and optimistic about his prognosis,” said his publicist, Howard Bragman. Still, three weeks is a long time. Pull through, Ed! source
