El Paso, Texas — Friends and family remembered actor Sherman Hemsley at his funeral Wednesday in Texas by showing video clips of him as George Jefferson, the TV role that was his best known.
About 150 people attended the service at Cielo Vista Church in El Paso. Hemsley, 74, died of lung cancer on July 24, but a fight over his estate delayed his burial.
Mourners couldn't help but laugh as they watched the clips of Hemsley playing the feisty, bigoted owner of a chain of dry-cleaning businesses on "The Jeffersons."
"He helped us to laugh, gave us an opportunity to forget the troubles, the stresses of life," El Paso Police Department chaplain Sam Faraone said during Hemsley's eulogy.
Hemsley, an Air Force veteran, was buried at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery.
"The best way I can describe it is by how we released a dove" at the burial, longtime friend Flora Enchinton Bernal »

Anyone who became addicted to HBO’s horse racing drama Luck — which the net elected to cancel on Wednesday — should get some closure in the next two weeks. The ninth and final episode that is set to air on March 25 has the feel of finale, even though it wasn’t necessarily designed to be the series’ last, EW has learned.
And HBO will still release the entire first season on DVD. The only lingering question is whether the scenes that were shot during Luck’s final days will be added as extras: The drama from David Milch and Michael Mann »

One of Gibbs' former agents contacts him for help with a case involving sailors who have died from drug overdoses aboard an aircraft carrier. Gibbs (Mark Harmon)gets a phone call from his former agent Stan Burleigh,(Joel Gretsch) so we could have an episode where Tony (Michael Weatherly) feels jealous and out of sorts at not being one of Gibbs' fave agents. He still calls Gibbs boss. He worked with Gibbs for 5 years and Abby (Pauley Perrette) still misses him. He was cool, which makes Tony juvenile cool, ha. Tony has to mention working with Gibbs for 5 years, must be a record. Also being sarcastic that Burleigh didn't end up in a strait jacket. Burleigh, like Tony was/is into sports. Gibbs and Burleigh weren't really like Gibbs and Tony. He does have a soft spot for Tony, but Burleigh appeared to be on more of an equal footing with Gibbs. »
