Johnny Cash was such a humble man. I just saw a clip of an interview he did on Larry King recently. Larry asked him if he was mad at God, if he was ever angry at God for what he'd been through. And Johnny humbly said he could never be angry at God, and that his life was a beautiful one. You were also a beautiful one, Johnny.

And I also used to watch Threes Company re-runs as a kid. Thanks John Ritter for making my childhood that much happier every day after school. You'll be missed.

I can't see that video enough

and I just saw the tribute to Johnny Cash where U2, Willie Nelson, and scores of others played. It was quite moving seeing that now knowing he is gone

I was so sad to hear about this. I can't believe it. I grew up with Cash's music too and I have always liked Ritter. I used to have a crush on him. How tragic.

I couldn't believe it when I heard about John Ritter's death. I'd just seen his new sitcom a week ago and it's hard not to run into a Three's Company rerun at some point or the other.

THE SHOW WILL GO ON: After much "introspection and discussion," ABC has decided to continue production of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter despite the sudden death of its star John Ritter. Instead of recasting Ritter's role, producers will write his death into the show. At a press conference Tuesday, ABC chairman Lloyd Braun announced that the network would air the three episodes that Ritter completed sequentially beginning with next Tuesday's season premiere. The show will then take a brief production hiatus and "future episodes, once we come back onto the air, will take viewers into the Hennessy household as they experience the loss of a father and construct a new life together."


i was soo shocked to see these 2 greats pass on the same day

I don't see it lasting more than the rest of this season.

It's too hard to go on after a main actor dies.

Actually I think it will do very well in the ratings for a while. Unfortunately morbid curiosity will get people to tune in for the 3 final episodes Ritter made, and the subsequent episodes where they deal with his death.
I hate to say that someone at ABC is probably looking at the financial upside of John's death.
Death is good for sales, look at what happened with Johnny Cash and Warren Zevon's sudden surge up the charts.
