Comedian Garry Shandling, best known to TV fans for his work in 'It's Garry Shandling's Show' and 'The Larry Sanders Show,' has died. TMZ says the 66-year-old funnyman passed away at a Los Angeles hospital. And the Daily Mail reports Shandling suffered a massive heart attack just hours after talking with friends. Los Angeles Police officer Tony Im told the Associated Press that officers were sent to Shandling's home on Thursday for a reported medical emergency. Shandling was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police are expected to investigate. Shandling began his career writing for sitcoms such as '70s hits 'Sanford and Son' and 'Welcome Back, Kotter.' But he made a name for himself as a stand-up comedian, and was reportedly in contention to replace Johnny Carson when the iconic comic left 'The Tonight Show.'
