It makes me laugh because I remember him ragging on one of his friends for wearing a (very obvious) rug on an episode of his old show, Me & The Boys.

It's been so long since I've seen that episode, I forgot that.

To me, a bad toupee brings more attention to the fact that someone's bald than rather if they didn't wear one. I'm not saying Max Gail had one, just a general statement.

Rob Riener wore one during all his years on "ALL IN THE FAMILY" and in his other TV appearences.
A few years ago; on "THE E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY" they did a 2 hour one about "AITF" and in an interview one of the cast members (I forget who) was saying that the show became so popular that they couldn't even walk down the street without a lot of fans coming up to them. But, Rob Riener would just remove his hair and noone would recognize him.

When I saw him guest star on one of the earlier seasons of "The Rockford Files," I noticed right away how he lacked any hair in the middle of his head and boy did the middle of his head shine brighter than daylight up there!

And Rob Reiner did INDEED wear a wig on most of ATIF!!

Just like his father Carl Reiner, he wore one too, eh?

Like father, like son, huh?

When Rob Reiner was married to Penny Marshall, he guest starred on an episode of The Odd Couple, playing her character Myrna's boyfriend.

I do remember at some point, Reiner lifted the toupee of his head to reveal his bald spot. He had a sort of hippie-like appearance and seeing that reveal was hilarious.

I remember that episode, that was Penny Marshalls last one. Rob played her boyfriend Sheldn. (not SheldOn. She explained to Felix that they forgot to put the "O" on his birth certifacate.) He was sometimes mentioned, but never seen until then.
I remember Garry Marshall also made a cameo appearence; as her brother. (which he is, in real life)

The irony is that Garry Marshall made more TV appearances after he stopped producing TV shows (Murphy Brown, etc.).

Reviving this thread from the dead:

Looks like Bob Eubanks, host of the Newlywed Game also wore a rug these days as well.

I noticed how by the late '70s and throughout the entire 1980s his hair-line very slowly became sparse as time passed.

And when he was appeared on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, his hiar was dyed black and his hairline was full again, making me to believe he wore a rug in the '90s and 2000s as well.

I noticed he wore one on the '90s verison of TNG when his hair was brownish-red.

Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs) on Dallas had greyish hair back in the '70s and '80s. When he came back for one of the reunion movies in the late '90s, his hair was dark.

Reviving this thread from the dead:

As for Lorne Greene, Pernell Roberts and Dan Blocker, yup! All 3 of them wore the pieces!

Especially Lorne Greene. I looked at a pic of him on one of his pre-Bonanza shows he worked on in Canada and sure enough his frontal hairline was fading!

He wore piece from the start on Bonanza and also wore the piece even when he starred as Capt. Adama on Battlestar Galactica and on Galactica 1980. It was also said that he even wears the piece in his private life too.

Robert Pastorelli of Murphy Brown also wore a piece, too.

Joe Pesci is another one. When he was on Home Alone 1 & 2, he had a receeding hairline, which made him look much older. Then when he was on My Cousin Vinny, I could tell right away that that shag carpet on his head was so domn obvious. It's kind of funny that when Pesci plays the bad guys, he doesn't wear the rugs like he does when he's playing the role of good guys.

I never thought they were either, along with Ted Danson, William Shatner. I don't mind the rugs as long as they have a real look to them.
