Stan Lee, Marvel Mastermind and Cameo King, Dead at 95

Stan Lee, Marvel Mastermind and Cameo King, Dead at 95
Comic-book legend Stan Lee, who helped build Marvel to prominence and who was involved in the brand’s television and film ventures, died Monday. He was 95.

Lee was declared dead at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after having a medical emergency, our sister site Variety reports.

During his many years at the comic-book publishing house, Lee created characters including Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. He left the company in 1972 but kept the title of chairman emeritus until his death, and he received production credit on TV series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, The Gifted, Inhumans,

Stan Lee, Marvel Comic Book Legend, Dies at 95
Stan Lee, who ushered in a comic book renaissance by co-creating the iconic superheroes Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men — characters who made the leap to film with often-spectacular results — died on Monday, his daughter’s attorney confirmed to Variety. He was 95.

Lee was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday after suffering a medical emergency, and was declared dead shortly afterwards.

Working primarily with artist Jack Kirby, Lee — writing as many as a half-dozen titles or more a month — transformed Marvel Comics into a powerhouse, featuring socially relevant stories that spoke to young readers in a way the form hadn’t previously. Those works, largely created during a wildly productive stretch in the early 1960s beginning with Fantastic Four, a squabbling and at times reluctant team of superheroes, were part of what came to be known as the Silver Age of comics.

After a stellar 2017 full of exceptional TV shows, we almost forgot that we might have to say goodbye to a few of them in the following year. Now that we've reached November, plenty of networks have already given shows like Good Behavior, One Mississippi, Damnation, Ghosted, Roseanne, and The Break With Michelle Wolf the ax. Amazon and Netflix have been big offenders, but series on networks like NBC, The CW, and ABC aren't safe, either. Pour one out for the shows that have taken their last TV gasp ahead.

Don't spend the season wondering whether the The Big Bang Theory TV show on CBS will be cancelled or renewed for season 13. CBS announced the 12th season is the final season, back in August.

To find out whether news that the The Big Bang Theory is ending dilutes the audience, or brings back old viewers for a great big sendoff, stay tuned.

Ratings: NFL Rebounds on Fox After Last Week’s Blowout, CBS’ ‘Big Bang’ Universe Bests the Rest

The NFL had a comeback on Fox this week, after a particularly bad blowout during its last “Thursday Night Football” showdown. A matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Carolina Panthers posted primetime’s best Nielsen numbers for the evening, taking Fox to the top of the leader board in both the key adults 18-49 range and total viewers.

First runner-up was CBS, which has its comedy powerhouse of “The Big Bang Theory” and prequel series “Young Sheldon” to thank for its second place trophy. Over on NBC, “Superstore” saw its most-watched episode since March, and ABC’s new Tgit staple “Station 19” rose in both the demo and viewers.
