    Man this one hits hard for me. I grew up watching the show every day with my grandma well into my teen years. I lost her back on Easter.

    He absolutely did. He tried to put the audience at ease when he was the one having to deal with it.

    As a nerd, this one makes me sadder than it should.

    An intelligent icon. Seemed like a guy you'd start talking to and lose all track of time, only to realize it was 6 hours later. Can't imagine a host better fit for his show. F cancer, and condolences to his family.

    You can put someone else at the helm but you’ll never actually replace him.
