Ernest Borgnine died today of renal failure in Los Angeles, CA. He was born Ermes Effron Borgnino on 24 January 1917. Ernest won an Oscar in 1955 for his role in the movie Marty and was on tv in shows like McHale’s Navy (1962-66) and Airwolf. Borgnine served in the US Navy and was discharged in 1941, but re-enlisted when the US entered WWI and served until 1945. His military decorations included the American Campaign Medal, Navy Good Conduct Medal, World War II Victory Medal, American Defense Service Medal with Fleet Clasp, and the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal. Ernest’s movie career included films like Bad Day at Black Rock, The Dirty Dozen, Ice Station Zebra, From Here to Eternity, and The Wild Bunch. He was also a character actor on many tv shows from The Love Boat, Little House on the Prairie, ER, Touched by an Angel, and many others.
I’m truly going to miss Ernie. It was comforting to know that he was around and still entertaining us. He attended TCM events and his presence was felt whether you saw him or not. R.I.P. Ernie…..thank you for your contribution to part of my childhood and memories…..Godspeed!!

I’m not much of a television person. I only watch certain shows. When our tv is on, it’s usually on classic movies. The whole family loves those!!
However, this week is huge for us. Over the summer, I got hooked on “CSI: Miami” and can’t wait to find out what happens to H. “Dancing with the Stars” is starting again and I can’t wait to see how our gold medal volleyball player does. I think Cloris Leachman will be a hoot!! “CSI” will be starting this week. Last season, the season finale literally blew me away!! I can’t wait to see what the hell is going to happen this season!! I do think it’s on it’s final leg though. “Survivor” starts. That’s the one reality show I never miss. I’ve watched it from the beginning. I keep saying that if I didn’t have diabetes, I’d go out there and try out in a heartbeat. I’m hooked and I’ve gotten my parents hooked too!! Then there’s “NCIS”, which I often miss, but I just have to see what’s going to happen after that finale.
Anything on Wednesday nights is impossible for me to see. I don’t even get near a tv. However, somehow between everything else that’s going on, I’m going to find some tv time this week. I love when the new seasons start and everything is fresh again.
Will you be watching any of the old shows that are returning?? Are you looking forward to any of the new shows??
