David Lloyd Bites the Dust

70s sitcom writer (Mary Tyler Moore Show, Wings, Rhoda, Phyllis, Cheers, Taxi, Lou Grant, and Best of the West, among many others) and father of Christopher Lloyd (the screenwriter, not the actor).

And best known for this.

Laugh a bit in his honor.

Wow. There’s a heavyweight from one of television’s golden ages.

Aw, that’s sad. Coming out of high school and into college, I wanted to be a sitcom writer, and he was someone I really looked up to. He wrote a lot of very, very funny stuff.

Damn, the passing of a really huge talent.

Aw man. And I’m eating peanuts.
