Comedian George Carlin Dies

Hosted by

Drug use and dirty words got stand-up comedian George Carlin banned from NBC's Tonight Show. But when the same network started Saturday Night Live, George Carlin was the first guest host. Ultimately, he appeared with Johnny Carson 130 times. Carlin, who helped re-define an art form and was proudly "a footnote in legal history," died yesterday of heart failure at the age of 71.
