Claim to fame: One of the protypical "shock jocks" of talk radio and front running right-wing loon, Morton Downey, Jr. made the transition to television with The Morton Downey Jr. Show in 1987.
After an incident allegedly involving "neo nazis" who cut his hair and spray-painted a swastika on his face, the show was yanked. (It was never verified and believed by some to have been a publicity stunt gone awry).
