I'm normally loathe to start the RIP threads, since they're difficult for me to handle. But this one hit me a little hard, because Uncle Frank seemed like such a sweet old man and I always thought Kimmel was a little cooler for finding a place for him on his show.

Jimmy Kimmel's Uncle Frank -- Dead at 77

    "Uncle Frank" Potenza -- the silver-haired ex-cop who charmed audiences on his nephew's show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", died early this morning ... reps from the show have confirmed.

    Uncle Frank spent 20 years as a New York City police officer -- before eventually becoming a staple on Kimmel's late night show in 2003.

    The show released an official statement on Frank's passing -- saying his "kindness and humor" will be missed.

    The show has not revealed Frank's cause of death.

    Uncle Frank was 77.

Rarely ever see JKL but Uncle Frank was hilarious on the red carpet bits.

Shut up, Josh!

Never watched the Andy Griffith Show really, but he will always be Matlock to me. He was always great, and the theme song will always be in the top five for me of all time. RIP
