TV Junkie: RIP Farrah Fawcett; 'Bruno' on Conan Tonight; Teens Still Watch TV
'Bruno' will be on Conan tonight (NBC at 11:35pm)
Farrah Fawcett passed away today in Los Angeles at age 62. Although she gained a lot of notoriety from her role on "Charlie's Angels", a hugely popular swimsuit poster, and a disoriented appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman" in 1997, Fawcett was a truly gifted actress (rent Extremeties or The Apostle) - rest in peace Farrah.
