2012 Scrabble Cheating Scandal When a teenager was caught cheating at the 2012 National Scrabble Championship in Orlando I made a post about it without any accompanying video. I've now remedied that oversight wit this post. News of the scandal spread quickly around the globe--no exaggeration. The next day several TV crews (including one from CNN) and various print media descended on the Royal Pacific Hotel tournament venue to cover the story. Here is how a local Orlando news team reported on the scandal. (By the way, if you look very quickly, I'm the guy in the referee's shirt with my back to the camera in the bottom left corner of the picture from about 0:47 to 0:52.)

Diffrent Strokes dad Conrad Bain Passes Age 89 Conrad Bain, the actor who played the father figure on the sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," has died, a source close to the Bain family. Bain died Monday night in Livermore, Calif., at the age of 89. His cause of death was unclear, but his daughter Jennifer told TMZ. Bain's death leaves only one surviving member from his "Diff'rent Strokes" TV family. Dana Plato, who played his daughter Kimberly, died in 1999 of a drug overdose. Gary Coleman, who played adopted son Arnold Jackson, died in 2010 after a fall down a flight of stairs in his home. Only Todd Bridges, who played his adopted son Willis Jackson, remains.

Jim Stafford - My Girl Bill From 1974, Jim Stafford gives a live performance of his quirky song My Girl Bill on British TV. This song actually got to number 12 on the US charts and number seven in Canada. From my experience listening to oldies stations, it's rarely heard nowadays. When My Girl Bill was first released, some radio stations banned it for promoting homosexuality. It doesn't, of course, as the last stanza explains.

Lets Make A Deal - 1973 This is a full 1973 episode of the syndicated version of the game show Let's Make a Deal. Hosted by "America's top trader, TV's big dealer" Monty Hall, LMAD was fast-paced, goofy and fun. It was quite possibly the first game show to use psychology as its main ploy. Contestants often had to decide whether to keep cash and prizes already accrued or trade them for unknown entities hidden under boxes or behind curtains. The daytime version of LMAD began on NBC in December 1963, moved to ABC in September 1968, and ran until July 1976. In all, more than 3,800 network episodes were produced. Also several syndicated nighttime versions sprang up during Monty Hall's tenure as host and producer. Pretty prize presenter Carol Merrill became famous for her euphonic name. Monty's announcer and assistant Jay Stewart was often involved in presenting "zonks"--worthless gag prizes awarded to contestants who made bad decisions. (As of December 2013, Monty is still with us at age 92. Carol is 73. Sadly, Jay committed suicide in 1989 at age 71.) Check out those 1973 prices and enjoy!

Real People - NBC Show Here's the intrduction from a 1980 episode of Real People--a popular NBC anthology show that ran for five years. Originally designed as a 'short-flight series' in the spring of 1979, it drew surprisingly strong ratings. Naturally NBC made it a regular prime-time show. Real People featured offbeat news stories and the exploits of eccentric folks shown to a live studio audience. The show had an overabundance of hosts. Among the regular hosts were Sarah Purcell, Byron Allen, John Barbour and Skip Stephenson. Real People finshed a strong 12th in overall TV ratings for the 1980-81 season. Its success spawned the very similar That's Incredible! on ABC. Here's a little-known fact: Richard Simmons was first widely exposed to American TV audiences on Real People.

Oprah Meets Mary Tyler Moore I not a big fan of Oprah Winfrey, but I found this clip to be charming: In a 1993 program Oprah declared that one of her favorite TV shows was the Mary Tyler Moore Show because Mary represented so much to working females. In 1997, Mary surprised Oprah on her show. Oprah's reaction proves that even celebrities can be star-struck on occasion.

Vanishing TV Character - John Burns of Taxi First airing in 1978, the ABC sitcom Taxi was an instant hit because of its clever writing and superb cast. In the pilot episode, a naive and somewhat dopey student named John Burns arrives in New York City and ends up in the Sunshine Cab building because he doesn't have a small bill to pay for his fare and main character Alex Reiger can't make change for a $50 note. By the end of that first episode, Burns has joined the rest of the gang as a cab driver. Randall Carver played Burns. Burns was by far the weakest character in the show's regular cast. Naivete was the key personality trait of Burns, but it was also the hallmark of Tony Banta (played by Tony Danza), an aspiring but largely unsuccessful pro boxer who made his living as a cabbie. Banta's and Burns' lines were so similar that they became almost interchangeable. A mid-season plot development in which Burns marries a girl after just one date failed to make his character stand out. At the end of the first season, John Burns just disappeared from the cast. What happened to him? Who knows? Not only was Burns' absence never explained, he was never mentioned again during the remainder of the series' successful run. Carver himself only had a handful of TV gigs in his post-Taxi acting career. Carver was essentially replaced in the Taxi cast by Christopher Lloyd whose burnt-out hippie character Reverend Jim Ignatowski was immensely popular. Lloyd won two Emmys for best supporting actor in a comedy series.
