Prime time television impresario Aaron Spelling produced a timeline of hits that captivated audiences spanning the "Mod Squad" counterculture to the Gen-X fans of "Beverly Hills 90210."
Though he left an indelible stamp on American pop culture, he never won the critical acclaim he sought.
Spelling died Friday at his Los Angeles mansion after suffering a stroke on June 18, according to publicist. He was 83."
What person was not affected by this man and one of his shows?
I sure was..I grew up with …..Fantasy Island , the Love boat and Charlie"s Angels..I loved Starksy and Hutch, and Dynasty..the list goes on and on…..
I think he had a great influence on what we watched on TV and some people never gave him credit for all the enjoyment he gave the american public. He made so many actors and actresses careers by casting them in his TV shows. He sure knew how to make a program work so people would watch..too bad more of them are not around today like him. ……….
A NOW FOR THE NEWS>>>>>>>>>
WHAT??..they are sending KATIE COURIC out on a tour of the country to ask viewers what they want out of a news broadcast?? Now if this isnt the strangest idea…..She is going to six cities talking to 100 people in a group with no reporters..just the average viewers and asking them to tell her what they want out of a news show……WELL DUH …….
NEWS!! Do you thnk CBS is worried that Katie won’t raise their last place ratings? I wonder?
I find myself looking elsewhere when the fluff stories come on
the screen.. is that really news?..Give me CNN…. that is news…
I think many more people would rather get news instead of the
stuff they put on today on network tv news. I misssss PETER JENNINGS
all the time…..I think Charlie Gibson is okay..but I still miss PETER… Heck
I even miss Walter Cronkite..now there was a newsman!! Enough said!!
When he said something you believed him and he was trusted above all the other newsmen. I remember him telling about the viet nam war at night
on the news and he made you listen to what he was saying. He covered NEWS not the human interest stories and studies and such. Long live the old days when men were like WALTER..and told us what we wanted to hear and what we needed to know… ."AND THAT IS THE WAY IT IS"……………..
