They should have shown a clip from the Roseanne show. Anyway everybody cheered when they showed DOn Knotts name and maybe he should have had a similar tribute as well like Aaron Spelling. I thought it was touching to see the clips, hear the theme songs, and realize how much Spelling meant to Los Angeles and everybody in the entertainment business. I loved seeing the original Charlie's Angels, Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith reunite to say goodbye to a television legend and icon. I just wished the SPelling family would patch up their differences and reunite as well. They shot a lot of Candy Spelling and Tori who sat on the other side of the auditorium. Candy was in tears next to Randy. Anyway, I loved the Dick Clark tribute and realize that he is no longer the teenage idol and Barry Manilow's tribute to him. I thought it was ironic that Simon Cowell introduced him. Poor Dick, I hope he is recognized and inducted into the Kennedy Center Honors this year and the National Medal of the Arts as well. All we can do is hope and pray that he gets better. My favorite moment is when Stephen Colbert addressed the audience as "godless sodomites." I know he was only kidding.
