(Trends Wide Business) –– Bob Saget was “an ever-constant figure in American living rooms,” as Phil Mattingly put it on Trends Wide this Sunday night.
Bob Saget, actor of the series “Full House”, died at the age of 65
That’s why his sudden death at age 65 spawned breaking newsletters, phone notifications, and television specials.
The news about Saget’s death
TMZ initially reported the news and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office in Florida later confirmed the death. ABC interrupted his show “America’s Funniest Home Videos” to report on the death of the former host of the show.
En Trends Wide, Chloe Melas He said that “this (death) feels so bad” because several generations of fans connected with Saget through his character Danny Tanner, both on “Full House” and “Fuller House.” Melas commented that she wanted to call her mother to discuss this news, in the same way that many other people will “process this.”

Perhaps Saget’s co-star John Stamos delivered it in the most poignant way on Sunday night: “I am devastated. I am destroyed. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never have another friend like him. I love you so much, Bobby.” .
The Bill Carter Commemoration
Trends Wide media analyst Bill Carter, who knew Saget and interviewed him several times, referred to the actor as “enormously famous by accident.” Carter said that “at his highest point he starred in ‘Full House’, and the children of the United States were watching him avidly. My children were watching him avidly. We all saw it together, another phenomenon that no longer happens … And at the same time At the time, he was on ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos.’ That means Saget was participating “in two of the top 10 shows … simultaneously.”
“The thing about Bob is that it didn’t change him,” Carter added. “I think he appreciated how special and lucky it was … He just enjoyed the moment. He enjoyed it. He reveled in it,” he added.

I also appreciated this point that Carter made: “I’ve written a lot about comedians, late-night hosts, in my career,” he said. “And they can be a bit difficult,” he chuckled. “They can be insightful, they can be difficult to get to know, and you usually can’t come up with the sweet adjective to describe them. But Bob was a sweet guy. You could tell it in your exchanges with him. You could feel it. He was a warm guy. He was a guy. sweet that he had a great career and he deserved it. “
Saget in his own words
During a 2020 interview with Garin Pirnia, for the InsideHook website, Saget spoke about his three-dimensionality in a world where sometimes only two dimensions are expected. “How funny you are and how kind you are are the biggest compliments to me,” he remarked. “But, then I look online and they say ‘I hate you’. So I block them. If someone says ‘You’re not funny, they’re wrong,’ I block them. They’re gone. If someone says ‘You’re cruel’, I block them. They’re gone. I just don’t do anything negative. I guess the things I’m most proud of are the traits my father had, which are funny and kind. “
Funny and friendly, the same traits that kept popping up during our Sunday night coverage on Trends Wide.
The words “I just don’t do anything negative” resonated with me as well. According to local media reports, Saget sometimes sang a song “I Don’t Do Negative” (which translates to “I don’t do anything negative”). And in this one Tweet December, in which he promoted his tour dates, he used that phrase to name the tour: “I don’t do anything negative.” Maybe that’s a feeling the rest of us should remember …
Candace Cameron Bure, who played Saget’s oldest daughter on “Full House,” tweeted: “I don’t know what to say 💔. I have no words. Bob was one of the best human beings I have ever met. I loved him so much.” .
