What is myocardial infarction?

He should buy some of that life insurance he hawks...he cannot be turned down, there are no physicals or medical testing, the premium will not go up and the benefits are guaranteed for life!!

Didn't Alex drive drunk and crash his car? And his wit is often a shape barb I hope he clams down now. He's a nice person but wound a bit tight.

Since these shows are taped well in advance, too bad he didn't have the heart attack on the set during sweeps month.

It would have been a real ratings juggernaut for the network.

Unfortunately he didn't have a heart attack while taping, so we would be spared his condescending BS to the brightest people that appear on game shows. I would have been spared my nightly ritual of yelling at the TV what an a** I think he is. Easy to be so smart when you have the answer questions. I often wonder if the rest of America finds him as off putting as I do. Also I can not stand when he imitates accents - yuck...so wrong.
