The Truth Behind The 'Suddenly Susan' Star's Tragic Death And How He Spent His Final Night

- Page 1

Sitcoms were everything in the 90s. There were so many different options to choose from, that sometimes, a lot of the best shows were forgotten. Suddenly Susan was one of those great shows.

When it started in 1996, it became one of the top rated shows. But after getting moved around in the schedule, it quickly fell out of the top five and moved down in the ratings. Even though the show wasn't as popular, it remained a treat to watch, except one episode that proved to be incredibly emotional.

The stars of the show were some pretty notable actors. Susan was played by none other than Brooke Shields, and her boss, Jack, was played by Judd Nelson. Kathy Griffin starred as Vicki the restaurant critic, and then there was also Luis the photographer played by Nestor Carbonell. Andréa Bendewald was a reporter named Maddy and Barbara Barrie was the emotional support of the show as Susan's Nana, but the character who is remembered most of all was Todd.

Todd Stities was the rock music reporter played by David Strickland. He was goofy, energetic, hilarious and people loved watching his outrageous moments on the show.

It wasn't easy being a child star, and when he was 14 he decided to take time off to go to high school and live a

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all
