Oh Sir, Uh, One More Thing...

Peter Falk has died.

TODAY.com, an msnbc.com property:

"Falk first played Lieutenant Columbo (his first name was never clearly announced, though one badge image lists it as "Frank") in a 1968 TV movie. Its popularity led to a second film and then to the series, which ran from 1971 to 1978. Even after the show was canceled, Falk would play the laid-back detective in "Columbo" TV movies."

Perhaps more than any other tv cop, Falk's Columbo character was iconic.
