Hey Old Timer Gossip:
A "Where Are They Now?" story about stars of cop and detective shows.

Publication: Globe
Date: 5 Dec. 2011

This week's Meanest Story competition is not as mean as recent weeks when there have been several Brave Last Days Alerts.  Two reasons for this are that the low rent Examiner wasn't delivered to the usual places in Oakland and the Globe had a massive cover story that isn't mean. They have a list of old detective and cop shows with pictures of the stars. They may say some of them are going through hard times in the story inside, but on the cover it's just an invitation to nostalgia. Here are the stars and shows mentioned, each with a picture. There is a promise of an 11 page spread with even more photos.  Here is the list from the cover, both of stars and shows.
  • Don Johnson Miami Vice 
  • Angie Dickinson Police Woman 
  • Cybill Sheperd Moonlighting 
  • Edd Byrnes 77 Sunset Strip 
  • Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless Cagney and Lacey 
  • Dennis Franz NYPD Blue 
  • Martin Milner and Kent McCord Adam 12
There is also a picture of the case of The Mod Squad, but no names were included.  They are in a separate post.
