    I am pretty certain that everyone on this board over 20 years old knows who Richard Dawson is:

    I had to Google his name. And I'm 30.

    Truth is, I just don't care about who's on tv or not. Never really have.

    That said, RIP Richard Dawson.

    He was the best game show host by far (not that I am a devotee of the genre ). Quick witted, interesting, a touch out of control. I liked him as Newkirk in Hogan's Hero's too.

    RIP.

    You've never heard of him cuz you live in Canada.

    He always was my favorite Match Game panelist. Contestants picked him for the bonus round nearly all the time, way more than any other celebrity.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do…
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
