    I was scrolling down My Yahoo! few minutes ago when I saw the headline. I did a double take thinking I misread it. Pretty shocking. Just few hours ago, I was watching a rerun of Three's Company on Nick at Night.

    Dang.

    Oh my god!

    That is quite a shock. I'm at a loss for words.

    I was too, Phil. Second-hand information, but someone listening to ABC Radio News said it was a massive heart attack. This is about like John Candy for me. They were both guys I just figured would always be around. [​IMG]

    My jaw dropped to the floor on this one.

    A very likeable guy with tremendous talent - he will be missed.

    A real shame. Just as he made a big comeback to prime time network T.V. [​IMG]

    This was a shock to me as well. Just so unexpected. I loved his work and enjoyed a lot of projects he was involved in. You will be missed Mr. Ritter. RIP [​IMG]

    That really sucks. I wonder how this will impact the show? My wife and I were looking forward to the new season.

    Oh no.
    I grew up watching him in Three's Company. What a loss.

    I'm still numb from this news. Sincerely one of my favorite actors out there. Damn what a crappy way to start a day.

    I sat down a wrote out a stupid little memorial piece at my site. But that just depressed me more.

    Color me entirely miserable.

    RIP John. Thanks again for all the laughs.

    Somehow got hooked on his new show, he was perfect in the role. Stunned when I heard it on the radio this morning. Then a double whammy when I heard the Country legend Johnny Cash also died. Sad day.

    Today officially sucks.

    RIP John, Three's Company was one of my favorites growing up, and 8 Simple Rules was one of the best comedies on tv now. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My friend woke me at 6:30 with the news... Sucks...
    I worked with him backstage here in NYC on "The Dinner Party" and he was a genuinely funny, nice guy. Once got me a "Jerry Garcia" designed tie for Xmas...

    sad, sad news... My condolences to Amy and his children.
    RIP, John....


    Dave Mack, the guy at the door.

    John Ritter & Three's Company were a big part of my youth growing up. He always made me laugh.

    Terribly unexpected, awfully sad.

    Man, this is just terrible!!

    I was a big fan of his!

    His movie "Hero at Large" was, I thought, a real "sleeper". I always thought he was a little underrated by the public as a movie actor.

    Like many here, I really enjoyed his TV shows; and am just in total shock at this moment.
