He was an after school staple for countless kids in the ’80s and ’90s—but today news broke that Bob Saget, best known for his role as Danny Tanner in Full House, was found dead in a Florida hotel. He was 65. 

Authorities say they responded to a call at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando Sunday afternoon for an unresponsive male, later identified by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office as Saget. Officials say they found no signs of foul play or drug use at the scene.

Saget was in Florida for his “I Don’t Do Negative” comedy tour, and performed last night in Jacksonville. He tweeted about the show late last night, saying he “loved tonight’s show.”

Of course, to many of us who grew up as the Oregon Trail generation, Saget will forever be Danny Tanner, the beloved, slightly bumbling father who earned the nickname “America’s Dad” raising his on-screen daughters DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle alongside Uncle Jesse, Aunt Becky, and Joey. He went on to host several years of America’s Funniest Home Videos, and later reprised his role on the Netflix reboot Fuller House, but his original role as Danny Tanner is how we’ll best remember him. 

Reaction to Saget’s death started pouring in on social media Sunday night, including stunned reactions from his former co-stars:

Rest in peace, Bob Saget—and thanks for the laughs.

We all watched the last two years as he fought his struggle with grace and kept on hosting the iconic game show for which he is so well known. Trebek’s fight was inspiring and he will be so, so missed. Alex Trebek and Jeopardy! hold a special place in American culture: He and his show are one of the few things baby boomers, Gen Xers, Xennials, Millenials, and today’s teens all have in common, know about, and enjoy.

Betty White

In a year we all hoped would turn out better than the debacle that was 2020, the final day of 2021 has delivered its final blow: legendary actress and comedienne Betty White has died at age 99.  That sound you hear is an entire nation collectively wailing, “Noooooooo!”  White was just weeks shy of her Jan. 17th centennial birthday—in fact, she’s on the cover of this week’s People magazine talking about that upcoming milestone—and she tweeted about it just three days ago.  My 100th birthday… I cannot believe it is coming up, and People Magazine is celebrating with me!
