Emilys Reasons Why Not - One Episode Sitcom Emily's Reasons Why Not was a very short-lived ABC sitcom starring Heather Graham. The show was based on the novel of the same name. Although seven episodes were made, Emily's Reasons Why Not was cancelled after one episode on Monday, January 9, 2006. The series centered on Emily (Graham), an author of self-help books who is unable to find success in romance. In the premiere episode she ends a bad relationship and adopts a new rule for her romances: if she can list five reasons to break up with a guy...she does. Emily gets help from her friends, among them Josh, whose character is strongly based on overtly gay stereotypes. The show was widely considered a less risqué copycat of Sex and the City. In the first episode, Emily is convinced the man she is dating is gay when he is actually a devout Mormon practising chastity before marriage. The show drew fire from pro-abstinence groups for its inability to portray an abstinent person without relying on stereotypes of homosexuality. Despite heavy promotion by both Sony Pictures Television and ABC, the show was pulled after the first episode due to drawing only 6.2 million viewers. Production was stopped after filming six episodes. ABC was said to have spent millions on promotion, including airtime, billboards and radio ads, and considered Emily to be the 'linchpin' of the network's post-football Monday-night schedule. After viewing it, ABC's entertainment president suggested that they considered the show lackluster and unlikely to improve. The New York Times attributed the show's cancellation in part to the extremely unappealing nature of the main character and her portrayal by Graham.

Gig Young Murder-Suicide 1978 Actor Gig Young was outwardly debonair but he led a troubled life. Alcoholism curtailed his promising acting career and ruined more than one marriage, including a turbulent wedlock with Elizabeth Montgomery. Although he won an Oscar for his 1969 portrayal of a dance marathon emcee in They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, Young's acting jobs became increasingly scarce during the 1970s. He was fired after just one day on the set of Blazing Saddles for alcohol-related problems. His last film appearance was in The Death Game where the 64-year-old Young met 21-year-old script supervisor Kim Schmidt. Schmidt became Young's fifth wife on September 27, 1978. Twenty-two days later they were both found shot to death in their Manhattan apartment. The case was ruled a murder-suicide, with Young the perpetrator. No note was found to explain the motive. Although Young's estate was valued at about $200,000, in his will he left just $10 to his only child, a 14-year-old daughter, whom Young claimed was not actually his.

Jerry Lee Lewis Marriage Scandal Jerry Lee Lewis was one of early rock-and-roll's pioneers and leading performers. In December 1957, when he was 22 years old, Lewis secretly married for the third time. The bride was Myra Gale Brown--who happened to be just 13 years and five months old. Myra's father was Lewis' cousin, J.W. Brown, a member of Lewis' band. News of the strange marriage did not surface until May 1958 when a British journalist uncovered the story as Lewis was beginning a tour of England. The adverse publicity caused the tour to be cancelled after just three concerts. The backlash followed Lewis to the United States. Many radio stations refused to play Lewis' songs. Lewis went from $10,000-per-night engagements to small-time bookings where he was lucky to pick up $250. Moralists declared the scandal was proof of rock-and-roll's inherent evil. The couple stayed married until 1970. Today Brown is a real estate agent.

Our Gang - Scotty Beckett Scotty Beckett joined the Our Gang troupe in 1934 as a five-year-old. Wearing an oversized sweater and a backward baseball cap, the photogenic Scotty was the stereotypical 'cute kid.' He stopped doing Our Gang comedies after just two years to do roles in feature films. He had a successful acting career as a teen. Most notably he played the youthful Al Jolson in The Jolson Story (1946). However, by 1954, Beckett's acting career was over. His adult life was a series of bad marriages, alcoholism, drug abuse, small-time crime, and violent incidents. Once he engaged in a prolonged gun battle with police. On May 8, 1968 Beckett checked himself into a nursing home after receiving a beating. He died two days later from what may have been a suicide or a drug overdose. Beckett was 38 years old.

Our Gang - Jackie Cooper The most successful member of the Our Gang troupe as far as post-Gang achievements in Hollywood was Jackie Cooper. He joined the Gang in 1929 at age seven, making his first appearance in 'Boxing Gloves.' He was the best of the troupe at adapting to the new sound technology. His most famous Our Gang roles have him smitten with Miss Crabtree, his school teacher. By 1931 Cooper was in demand for feature films, so Hal Roach sold his contract to Paramount Studios. Cooper received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for Skippy (1931) at age nine, making him the youngest actor ever to be nominated for that award. He is famous for playing opposite Wallace Beery in five films, most notably The Champ (1931). Although Cooper and Beery had a magical rapport in films, years later Cooper revealed that Beery was a foul-mouthed and sadistic person who was loathed by everyone on the set. Cooper served in the Second World War and later returned to Hollywood as a director. He won an Emmy for directing an episode of MASH. Cooper and Spanky McFarland are the only two Our Gang actors to have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cooper was widowed in 2009 after 55 years of marriage to his third wife. He also outlived two of his four children. Cooper died at age 88 on May 3, 2011.
