Hugh Downs dies at 99, hosted Concentration

Honestly, he's been gone from TV for so long that I thought he was already dead. You might not know that he did an album as a folk singer for Epic around 1962.

I guess I first knew him as host of 20/20 and he seemed old even then. I mean, really, when you consider he'd been semi-retired from TV for almost 10 years when he started 20 20.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Concentration with Hugh Downs was the first game show I remember watching.
I used to be AWSOP but wanted to be more theatrical.

We would watch after dinner when I was little. I was too young to follow along the matches but I enjoyed solving the rebuses.
