Tonight Show Legend David Brenner Passes at age 78 Legendary comedian David Brenner has died at the age of 78 ... and he went out with a joke. Brenner's rep says David passed away peacefully Saturday evening at his NYC home surrounded by family. As TMZ previously reported ... Brenner slipped into a coma this week after his cancer got aggressive and started spreading rapidly. D.B. holds the record for most "Tonight Show" appearances with 158 couch sessions. He also hosted the show a handful of times. We're told David had one final request -- $100 in small bills be placed in his sock -- and said it was "just in case tipping is recommended where I'm going."

Makin It - Failed Disco Sitcom In 1979 ABC figured the time was ripe for a disco-themed sitcom. Actually, the timing was bad. The disco fad was already on the decline, but that didn't stop ABC from giving the public nine episodes of Makin' It. The series was set in Passiac, NJ. David Naughton starred as college student Billy Manucci. Billy worked part time at Tasty Treats (an ice cream store) and spent his evenings at Inferno, Passiac's hottest disco. Ellen Travolta played the mother of Billy, an older son named Tony (who was the best dancer at Inferno), and daughter Tina. Some people have said Makin' It attempted to be a hybrid of Happy Days and Saturday Night Fever. (I think that's a fair comment. The first episode was titled Stayin' Alive. The opening credits are certainly Happy Days-like.) Here's the opening montage. Makin' It debuted on February 1, 1979 and last aired on March 23. Interestingly, the show's catchy theme song, performed by lead actor Naughton, became a hit after Makin' It had been cancelled by the network. It reached #5 on the Billboard Top 40.

Fanny -Butter Boy Fanny were a late 1960s, early 1970s American all-women band, led by June Millington. They were pioneers as one of the first rock bands to feature all women, and the second to sign to a major record label, behind Goldie & the Gingerbreads. They hit the Top 40 twice, with "Charity Ball" in 1971 and "Butter Boy" in 1975, peaking at #40 and #29 in the Billboard Hot 100, respectively. Fanny were the first all-female band to release an album on a major label

Willard Hershberger - Baseball Suicide The only active major league baseball player to commit suicide during a season was Cincinnati Reds' catcher Willard Hershberger. The 30-year-old Hershberger was in his third season as a backup catcher for the Reds. Often moody, Hershberger was a loner who was extremely critical of his own play. When regular Reds' catcher Ernie Lombardi was injured during the 1940 season, Hershberger took over, batting a very respectable .309 and playing well defensively. On July 31, though, the Reds blew a late lead against the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds. Hershberger blamed himself for the loss and became sullen. The Reds then travelled to Boston where they lost both games of a doubleheader to a weak Boston Bees team on August 2. Afterwards, Hershberger met with Reds' manager Bill McKechnie to discuss personal problems. The next day, when Hershberger failed to appear at the ballpark, a search of his Boston hotel room found Hershberger dead in a pool of his own blood. He had slit his wrists with a razor. (There was a history of suicide in the family: Hershberger's father had killed himself in 1926.) Manager McKechnie never elaborated on the personal issues he had discussed with his troubled catcher.

The Outlaw 1941 The Outlaw was Jane Russell's controversial breakthrough movie role. Producer Howard Hughes made this flick about the life of Billy The Kid in 1941, but it did not see general release until 1946. The Hays Office, responsible for censorship at the time, considered The Outlaw to be overtly sexual. (The film would likely get a G rating today.) Hughes knew what sold: He had designed a cantilevered brassiere to showcase Russell's ample assets! Hughes gladly kept the film out of circulation knowing full well its infamy would pay off in box office receipts upon its release.

Johnny Mostil Suicide Attempt 1927 The 1927 Chicago White Sox were baseball's version of a soap opera. During spring training in Shreveport, LA, popular center fielder Johnny Mostil attempted suicide with a razor. He was discovered in a booster's hotel room lying in a pool of his own blood. Several teammates administered first aid, got him medical treatment and saved his life. (Two Shreveport doctors later sued Mostil and the White Sox for non-payment of $6,000 in medical bills.) What prompted Mostil's out-of-the-blue suicide attempt? The official team statement said Mostil was feeling the negative effects of a painful bout of neuritis. However, the whispers were much more interesting. Mostil was rumored to be having an affair with Irene Faber, the wife of White Sox pitcher Red Faber. Shortly after the suicide attempt, Mostil's girlfriend, Margaret Caroll, began dating Bill Barrett, another White Sox player. The two eventually married. Mostil did not play until September. By 1929 his career was over. He died in 1970.
