huh    

Amoung other shows...Merv created Wheel of Fortune
He also made 70million off the Jeopardy theme song

This is a clever ode to Merv

Merv was a great spirit and would love this posting.

Those of you who have a problem with this posting are the same people who go through life looking for the negatives. Merv would have never given you the time of day.

This is very clever.....but than again some of you aren't.

RIP MERV!!!

There is no humor in this content, no entertainment value, geez, it's not even sensationalism. TMZ... I know you are a trashy site and an equal opportunity offender, but this crosses the line.

If you were gonna show Vanna clapping like that how about the puzzle being We Loved You Merve or something like that. Not that he died. Upsetting

Geez, what an awful thing to put up. Is a simple "Rest in Peace" with a reasonably flattering photo too much to ask? That really sucks and not even a little funny.

The HIGHEST COMPLIMENT you can pay an ENTERTAINER is to CLAP.

Merv would have laughed at you twits for chastizing that HONOR.

Today, August 12, 2007 will be known as the day that TMZ JUMPED THE SHARK. While TMZ has made a bundle by harassing celebrities, at least they were alive and had the opportunity to defend themselves. Shame on you TMZ and you truly deserve the fallout that is sure to occur after posting that despicable photo. You have shown us that you are no better than Lindsay Lohan. My hope is that after this tasteless display, that media outlets will refuse to have Harvey Levin on the air to promote this site in the future. The good news is that since TMZ is owned by AOL...a publicly traded company (Time Warner), we can begin our boycott today.
