Top Ten #171

1) Denzel Washington: He reportedly calmed Will Smith down by saying, "Son, don't let it linger. I saw the same thing happen on the set of Elsewhere when Begley went after Howie."

2) Wrestlemania: Anyone else kind of wish it were Starrcade? (Rest in peace, Rocky King, who never made it to Mania but gave me lots of entertainment Saturday nights at 6:05.)

3) Grammy Awards: This is probably a dumb question, but...[whispering] do they know we just had the Oscars last week? Here's a moment from 40 years ago:

4) The Love Boat: props to Brick Mantooth for featuring The Love Boat Mego toys (vintage, but we can dream about a revival) in this cool video. I want all of this, by the way, even the ghastly Vicki and Julie figures:

5) NCAA Basketball: As March Madness comes to an end, let's just appreciate that we got to see Coach K lose one more time. And, wow, a lot of stuff is going on this weekend.

6) Eddie Murphy: Happy 61st birthday to the icon. You know who loved him? Mister Rogers, that's who.

7) Fat Albert Easter Special: I don't remember this one at all, but it premiered 40 years ago tonight on CBS. Of course, the Filmation special features the voices of Jan Crawford, Eric Suter, Gerald Edwards, and no one else.

8) Perry Como's Easter in Guadalajara: This one also premiered April 3, 1982, closing out prime time on ABC with Ann Jillian and Charo. I had to double-check to make sure it's not an SCTV sketch.

9) Bruce Willis: Props to ol' Bruno and best wishes as he enters retirement.

10) National Find a Rainbow Day: Here's a place to find one:
