It's been more than 16 years since comedian Phil Hartman — star of Saturday Night Live,The Simpsons and NewsRadio — was shot to death in his bed by his wife Brynn, who later turned the gun on herself. His murder sent shockwaves through Hollywood, stunning both those who knew him personally and those who were only familiar with the characters he played on TV.
In the new biography You Might Remember Me: The Life and Times of Phil Hartman, author Mike Thomas delves into the life and death of Hartman, from his humble upbringing in Canada through (an exhaustive examination of) his final, fateful hours. The book also reveals the tumultuous nature of the Hartmans' marriage, offering details that seem chillingly ominous in retrospect.

On Saturday she hosts Hollywood's Creepiest Creatures (8 pm/ET on Animal Planet) and Elvira's Movies to Die For marathon (from noon until 10 pm on Lifetime).
