Goodbye, Big Guy. It's already been a sad year in terms of lost sitcom greats, with Nell Carter, Buddy Ebsen, and John Ritter passing away. But none of these brought more tears to my eyes than the passing of the Big Guy himself, WKRP Station Manager Arthur Carlson, Gordon Jump. Whether he was arranging to have live turkeys dropped from a helicopter or wondering if his Mom was sleeping with Andy, Gordon set a standard for befuddled leadership and comedy that has never been equaled. We'll miss you, Sir.
