2012: William Asher, one of the most prolific early television directors, known especially for his work on "I Love Lucy" and "Bewitched," dies from complications of Alzheimer's disease at age 90 in Palm Desert, California. Asher directed more than 100 episodes of "I Love Lucy" and also produced "Bewitched" during its entire eight-year run. At that time, he was married to the show's star Elizabeth Montgomery, although they divorced soon after the cancellation of the series in 1972. He also directed episodes of "Make Room for Daddy," "The Twilight Zone," "The Patty Duke Show," "Gidget," "The Dukes of Hazzard" and "Alice," and several movies, including "Muscle Beach Party," "Bikini Beach" and "Beach Blanket Bingo."
