Host who found prominence for marrying Tina Louise of Gilligan’s Isle Popularity. He also hosted ABC’s Les Crane Present. On the air, he pioneered the weekend Best-40 countdown. He was ABC’s response to Johnny Carson––and where Carson was fine to his guests, Crane was the poor guy of late-night Television. He was wedded to Tina Louise, who performed celebrity Ginger on Gilligan’s Isle from 1966 to 1974. Bob Dylan was among the many musical guests who made an appearance on Crane’s present; he rarely made an appearance on any American displays in general.
