    Before there was ER and Grey's Anatomy, there was Medical Center, and its star died tonight at 75. Had lung cancer for a year and a half.

    Damn. First Sherman, now Chad... who's next?

    Randolph Mantooth is feeling very nervous right now. Fortunately, ambulances are close by.

    Kevin Tighe is quaking in his boots also. Seriously, it's like the Pearly Gates have turned into TV Land today.

    They'll have to "see the man" to find out. (Old Adam-12 reference for the very young-uns on the board.)

    Damn, talk about a blast from the past--hadn't heard his name in eons. He was a big timer in the world of 70s TV.

    Kind of amazing how many of the big 70s TV stars really just had their career complete die as the decade ended--Everett, Mike Connors, Jack Lord, Robert Young all come to mind--pretty much all did virtually zippo in the 80s and beyond after ruling 70s TV.

    Jack Lord was typecast as McGarrett, and he was pretty reclusive anyway. Once Hawaii Five-O ended, so did his acting career. But he could sit back and rake in the residuals from those 281 episodes for the rest of his life.

    Robert Young was 73 in 1980 and stayed active in commercials and the occasional Welby and Father Knows Best reunion movies. He lived until age 91, thanks to Sanka coffee and cough syrup, no doubt.

    He played Major Max Mercy in the Centennial miniseries.
    He was made for that kind of format - a dwindling breed of actors.
