The man who we all remember with his "H-e-e-e-e-e-ere's Johnny!" line on the Tonight Show died early today shortly after midnight. Ed McMahon, 86, was at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for a "multitude" of health problems, but no one cause of death has been announced. Post late-night career, McMahon held various roles, but most recently his Studio City home foreclosure and Cash-for-Gold commercials had made headlines. You'll be missed, Mr. McMahon. R.I.P.
