    Andy Rooney retiring '60 Minutes' segment | PopWatch | EW.com

    92 years old!!

    WOW!!

    Recently the only time I tuned in to 60 Minutes was during the last 10 minutes so I could catch what the curmudgeon would rant about.

    You'll be missed, Andy

    :cool:

    He was the reason I stopped watching the program. I much preferred the segment with Shana Alexandra (who was pretty hot even at 40) and James Kirkpatrick.

    All I have to say is...

    [In the voice of Andy Rooney]
    Why do people feel like they have to announce their retirement? It just bugs me.
    And why do some people work until they are dead? Shouldn't they give their job up so someone who is trying to raise a family can have it? Why do they need all that money? Do they plan on burying it with them when they die?


    In a nutshell....Andy Rooney lost my interest at least a decade ago. He turned into a nonsensical-irrelevant and often boring rant session about paperclips or something.
    I am glad he finally quit...maybe now someone can have his segment that will talk about something ANYONE cares about.
