    Creator of one of my favorite shows, "Wiseguy". Of course his other credits stand out more - especially "Magnum P.I> and The A team".

    He's the third.

    Greg Geraldo, Tony Curtis, and now Stephen Cannell.

    Always in threes.

    I've always like his work. It was cool to see him on Castle as himself during their poker games. And he had a great credit at the end of all his shows. Him whipping a paper out of his typewriter and that paper turns into his credit.

    Which 3 is George Blanda part of?

    What happens if a celebrity dies tomorrow? Also- Joe Mantell died on the 30th. Does he count in this three or another three?

    I saw a list of five earlier today. The reason we get deaths in threes is that's were we stop counting, then start over. No magic involved.
