“Sixty Minutes” announced that this Sunday will mark the final appearance of “A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney.” The curmudgeonly commentator is retiring after appearing on the show almost since it began in 1968. Andy’s done over 1000 shows where he griped about everything from milk cartons to parking meters. Producers say that at 92, it’s hard for him to do the show every week anymore, although he might make occasional appearances if he has a topic to discuss.
- Did you ever wonder… when Andy Rooney was going to retire?
- At 92, Andy says it’s time to spend more time with his family and more time yelling, “Hey you kids… get off of my lawn!”
- Rooney also announced that upon his death, his eyebrows will be shaved, woven into a blanket and put on display at the Smithsonian.
