Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in February 2009

March 2, 2009
We lost a large number of TV show veterans in January 2009 but, thankfully, far fewer left us in February. The talented TV-related folks that left us in February include James Whitmore, One Life to Live's Phil Carey (All in the Family, Little House on the Prairie, The Bionic Woman, and Gunsmoke), Blossom Dearie (The Today Show and Schoolhouse Rock!), and Ed Cotter (Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Dear John, and Family Matters). James Whitmore, 87, died on February 6th at his Malibu, CA home. The actor was diagnosed with lung cancer in November 2008. Whitmore had a long list of movie and Broadway credits but also guested on TV shows like The Practice, The White Shadow, Gunsmoke, The Big Valley, and most recently, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He was married several times, including to Audra Lindley (Three's Company). Whitmore was also the grandfather of recent Survivor contestant, Matty Whitmore. Phil Carey, 83, passed away on February 6th at his home in New York. The actor had also been battling lung cancer. He was best known for playing business tycoon Asa Buchanan on ABC's One Life to Live soap opera for almost 30 years. A veteran of many movies, Carey also appeared on classic shows like All in the Family, Little House on the Prairie, The Bionic Woman, and Gunsmoke.
