Top Ten #119

1) National Yo-Yo Day: Yesss! Finally a day to recognize one this classic:

Hey, you celebrate your way, I will celebrate mine.

2) D-Day: Remember the courageous effort of the Allies on June 6, 1944!

3) Gavin McLeod: What a tremendous career this icon had, appearing in many TV series before finding increasingly pivotal roles on series with 138 (McHale's Navy), 168 (The Mary Tyler Moore Show), and 255 (The Love Boat) episodes.

4) Family and Police Woman: Tubi TV added the complete runs of these understreamed 1970s series for June.

5) That's My Mama: Crackle now has the short-lived sitcom. Forget about Mama, anything with Teddy Wilson and Ted Lange is worth seeing.

6) Amanda Pays: Happy birthday to the star of shows like Max Headroom!

7) David Schultz: Happy birthday to someone who didn't just slap John Stossel in an inafamous 202/20 segment, but knocked him down twice.

8) 1981 French Open: 40 years ago today, Hana Mandlikova beat Sylvia Hanika in straight sets to win the tournament, which had its home on CBS in the USA at the time.

9) Saturday Night Live: Congratulations to the late-night institution for topping the season ratings in the 18-49 demo--that includes all of prime time, not just late night, for the first time ever.

Well, I don't want to disappoint!

10) Rest in Peace: It was a tough week, as we lost Paul Soles (I'm still not convinced that was him as Spider-Man in Spider-Woman), Arlene Golonka, and Robert Hogan in addition to B.J. Thomas:
