Irv Weinstein - Last Newscast Farewell I generally try to make posts that appeal to the widest variety of people, so you might rightly ask, "Who is Irv Weinstein?" If you lived in western New York or southern Ontario from 1964 to 1998, Irv was the familiar anchorman of Buffalo's WKBW newscasts. Irv combined with weatherman Tom Jolls and sports director Rick Azar for more than 30 years of service to Eyewitness News on Channel 7, an ABC affiliate. Their news program regularly attained higher ratings than the other two Buffalo newscasts combined. For some reason, Eyewitness News had a strong following in Ontario--although there was no logical reason why anyone in Canada should regularly watch a Buffalo newscast. Irv was famous for his alliterations. You could pretty much count on a news story about "pistol-packing punks" or "Buffalo's blaze busters." Here is the final three minutes of Irv's last broadcast from December 31, 1998 showing Irv's farewell speech. It is surprisingly touching.

Celebrity Sweepstakes - Game Show Celebrity Sweepstakes was an NBC game show that aired from April 1, 1974 to October 1, 1976. It was hosted by Jim MacKrell. Here's how it worked: A panel of six celebrities was asked a trivia question. Before knowing the exact question but only the category, the members of the studio audience, through an electronic voting system, determined the odds of each panelist answering the question correctly by selecting whom they thought was most likely to give the correct answer. Based on those odds, the contestants wagered money on a celebrity and then found out if the bet was a good one. Celebrity Sweepstakes was originally slotted against Search for Tomorrow where it did not fare well against the popular CBS soap opera. It was then moved to 10 a.m. where it routinely bettered The Joker's Wild in the ratings. However, when CBS expanded The Price is Right to an hour, Celebrity Sweepstakes was blown away. For years it was believed all Celebrity Sweepstakes episodes had been erased by NBC, but obviously this one survived. This is the final eight minutes of the final show from October 1, 1976.

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.

Edie Adams Sings Thats All Edie Adams does a terrific rendition of That's All in this clip from the final episode of the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour ("Lucy Meets The Moustache") which I Love Lucy eventually evolved into. It aired on April 1, 1960. The show was taped in the first week of March 1960. By that time Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were no longer speaking to each other when the cameras weren't rolling. According to Adams, the tension on the set was palpable. (In fact, Lucy initiated divorce proceedings the day after this episode was completed.) Witnesses say Adams' song brought several of the cast members and crew to tears as it really was "that's all" for many of them.

Frank Bank aka Lumpy Rutherford Dies Fans of the classic sitcom Leave it to Beaver will be saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Bank, one day after his 71st birthday, on April 13, 2013. Bank played the not-too-bright Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford. In the show's first season Lumpy was an oversized bully who terrorized both Wally and Beaver. Later Lumpy became the inseparable friend of Wally and Eddie Haskell. After Leave it to Beaver went off the air in 1963, Bank went on to become a successful stockbroker. At one point he was a business partner of Jerry Mathers who played Beaver Cleaver.

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.
