Merv Griffin passed away today at the age of 82. Fox and Friends’ Brian Kilmeade had one of Griffin’s last interviews in July where he discussed his legacy and the impact of his shows…
On Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune:
I created both of the shows in my dining room in New York.
On where he sees talent on TV today:
I watch American Idol because of Ryan [Seacrest]. You know I started him off; I gave him a game show called Click…Ryan’s the best. It’s amazing how he pulls it together with what’s going on in that theater.
