MeTV has been showing 77 Sunset Strip for a while now.

Edd Byrnes was known around Hollywood for having more ego than his talent justified. The ratings of 77 Sunset Strip were tanking, so in its last season, ABC brought in Jack Webb and William Conrad as the producers to shake it up. Conrad said of Byrnes, "It was a great pleasure to fire the little prick."

Byrnes didn't work much after that.

As a Highlander fan, that's particularly sad. Even worse that he took his own life.
