AARON SPELLING, 83

Smitty called from the road on Friday to claim the point. This one might be worth two, for a variety of reasons.

Aaron Spelling was responsible for more crap, junk and hooey than any other television producer in history. His bio on IMDB shows the carnage:
The Mod Squad, The Rookies, S.W.A.T., Starsky & Hutch, Family, Charlie's Angels, Fantasy Island, The Love Boat, Vega$, Hart to Hart, Casino, Dynasty, T.J. Hooker, Hotel, The Colbys, Crossings, Melrose Place, Burke's Law, Beverly Hills 90210, 7th Heaven, Charmed.
And those were his hits. We conveniently overlook "B.A.D. Cats" and "Strike Force." He wasn't Quinn Martin, that's for sure.

He also produced Tori Spelling, whose reign of fame may finally wane.

Funny some of these are my favorite shows from the past. The 70’s shows in particular were my favorite. I am sure they were bad (except for Charlie’s Angels- that was great) but I love them anyway. Rest In Peace Mr. Spelling.
