Entertainer, entrepreneur Merv Griffin dies

http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/TV/0....ap/index.html

Merv Griffin, the entertainer turned impresario who parlayed his "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" game shows into a multimillion-dollar empire, has died. He was 82. Griffin died of prostate cancer, according to a statement from his family that was released by a spokeswoman for The Griffin Group/Merv Griffin Entertainment.
Merv.

A giant - and more so behind the scenes after his talk show ended.

I wonder who inherits the Merv Griffin Show set?
