Naturally, as a blog who loves game shows, we admired impresario Merv Griffin, the father of "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy!" Nowadays, we rarely see innovators like Merv making TV better. Perhaps it's because creativity by committee is the Daily Double in Hollywood now or maybe we're just too hung up on trying to figure out what the heck Britney Spears' assistant has to do with a legal matter involving Kevin Federline. Anyway, hope you're resting in peace with all the vowels you want, Merv.
