    Ok, please, enough.
    It's painful to watch you.

    It is so painful to watch.

    That. Was. Awful.

    He looks 100x worse than he did two years ago.

    I turned it on for a second, found it entirely too sad and painful to hear his voice and flipped away. Just can't do it.

    Dear ABC:

    I'm not going to watch Lost, no matter how much you promo it tonight.

    Geez, Dick looks awful. My first and fondest memory of NYE is staying up til midnight watching Rockin Eve and it's still a tradition 20-odd years later. But man, this is sad.

    I will admit it was touching to see Dick and his wife kiss.
  7. Damn, after seeing this thread, I turned it on to see how he's doing.

    Really wish I hadn't.

    You want hard to watch? Kathy Whatshername from the D-List show is cohosting Anderson Cooper's NYE special.

    And over on NBC, Howard Stern is apparently playing lead guitar for Lenny Kravitz these days.
  9. As someone who has been watching Dick for 25+ years, that was brutal to watch. Can someone jog my memory and tell me again what he is/was suffering from?

    Stroke. Suffered shortly before NYE in, I believe, 2003.

    He's been doing this--appearing in studio--for the last three years. He looked much better last year.

    What is wrong with his teeth?

    Massive stroke a few years ago.

    I've been watching him since American Bandstand in the mid-50s.
    This is very sad to watch.
