    Not a Hoax: Ken Ober, MTV's 'Remote Control' Host, Dies at 52 - Yahoo! TV Blog



    At first blush it looked like the latest fake-death rumor on the Internet: According to sketchily sourced reports, Ken Ober, the comedian best-known for hosting MTV's late-'80s game show "Remote Control," had died














    To legions of Gen-Xers, though, he'll be remembered as the host of "Remote Control," the TV-obsessed game show that aired on MTV from 1987-'89 and featured such categories as "Brady Physics" and "Dead or Canadian." It also helped introduce Adam Sandler to the world; he worked as a writer on the show (as did Denis Leary), and he played the recurring on-screen characters Trivia Delinquent and Stud Boy.

    Yes, but 52 years in MTV years are really a billion years in human years.

    My older sister used to pretend we were suffering a home invasion when she babysitted me and then laugh dementedly when I ran in terror.

    I am still plotting a horrible and long delayed revenge.

    she sounds about as evil as my sister. My sister liked to stough my face into the couch crack and sit on me. I know hate small spaces and she is still a bitch but I love her. :)

    I love my sister too. I would gladly donate her any to organ her, except my liver, I do not want to kill her. Or my penis, I really need that.

    I tell her all the time, "you know we are only half Mom, half Dad, but we are both the same gentic material, no one will be more closely related to you than me in the world".

    I know that keeps her up at night.

    WARNING: SENTIMENTAL MOMENT!!!!!!

    One of my greatest memories, a memory I hope I die with is when my sister took an ignorant little boy to see the King Tut exhibit in LA.

    I have been hooked on history ever since, and the books she gave me, the knowledge she imparted to me has informed me for my entire life. We don't even agree on most politics, but I know I owe her any knowledge I have about politics, her and my late father.

    My God I love her.
