    I think I saw notice of Harry Morgan's passing on this forum or in a CNN report the day it happened.

    I told my wife when she woke up and expected to see an announcement on Good Morning America which we watch every weekday morning.

    There's been enough confirmation on the internet but I don't think I've seen anything on TV save a fast announcement card at the end of a MASH episode.

    Weird.

    Keep in mind that they wouldn't mention it after the day he died; unless you're really important, it's already old news the next day.

    Sounds similar to what happened when Farrah Fawcett died - although in her case, there was a reasonable amount of mention (and I think Larry King was going to have a tribute to her on his show that night) before her death, along with everything else, got wiped off the news by Michael Jackson's death a few hours later.

    I heard about him dying on about 3 separate newscasts the day he died. Also, I think one of the cable networks (Nick at Night perhaps?) had a MASH marathon featuring the best of Harry.

    Saw it all over the place--a couple blurbs on the TV news, a segment on some show, and a thread in TCF HH.

    This. We're you expecting a report about Harry Morgan yesterday, and if so, why?
