Don Pardo was a timeless classic, and in selecting him as the announcer for the brand-new "Saturday Night Live," Lorne Michaels must have known it. Michaels, who remains "SNL" executive producer, recalled on Tuesday, "When they gave me a list of NBC staff announcers and I saw his name, there was no hesitation." On Monday, Pardo died at age 96, having served as an "SNL" mainstay and through-line from its debut in October 1975 up through the close of its 39th season in May. Michaels said, "He became our link to the beginnings of television on NBC." Generation after generation, "SNL" players have come and gone, replaced by the next wave. Pardo, certifying each of them by declaring their names on the air, stayed put. But now, with the 40th season bearing down in September, Prado has left a void. Who could ever replace him? Michaels said, "It's a question I've asked myself for maybe the last 10 years. I don't have an answer. I'm still kind of dealing with this. Fortunately, I have a month."
The officer killed while responding to a shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic was remembered Saturday as a beloved father of two, leader in his church and a former competitive ice skater. Garrett Swasey, a six-year veteran of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs police force, was one of three people who died when suspected gunman Robert Dear, 57, rushed into a Planned Parenthood clinic Friday with an AK-47. Police say he shot at responding officers from inside the building during a horrifying five-hour standoff.
Shortly after her debut as a Victoria’s Secret angel, Kendall Jenner reveals that she’s also capable of making sea creatures look sexy. The 20-year-old reality TV star and model showed off her long legs in a pair of heels, red lipstick and high heels as she posed for Love magazine’s annual advent calendar.

Queen Elizabeth II on Saturday wrapped up a nostalgic visit to Malta, her one-time home, where she joked that Canada's youthful new leader had made her feel old. The British monarch has close ties to the Mediterranean island, where she lived between 1949 and 1951 while her husband, Prince Philip, was in the Royal Navy. On Saturday she crossed the Grand Harbor in the capital, Valletta, in a traditional Maltese wooden boat.
(CNN)Flooding has led to three deaths in the Dallas area after severe rains, authorities said Saturday -- part of a wintry storm system that is leaving tens of thousands without power as it hits the central Plains to the north. More than 7 inches of rain have fallen in the Dallas area from Friday into Saturday morning, leading to widespread flooding, and more rain is expected into Sunday. The victims include a man in Garland, northeast of Dallas. Benjamin Floyd, 29, was on his way to work when raging floodwaters swept his car off the road, according to CNN affiliate WFAA.
From the moment Sony PS4 was launched they have quietly rolled out a new Software Development Kit to developers that will unlock the 7th processor core. The impact of this change won’t be seen immediately, but games in development for Sony’s console right now should be able to take advantage of the extra performance this will offer. The end result seems inevitable: the PS4 will increase the performance gap to its rivals.
