More Culp, Less Ray

Robert Culp is dead. I have to hear about I Spy and Everybody Loves Raymond, but I'll forever think of Culp as Bill! From Greatest American Hero! (This is how big a fan I was at the time.) He had that coveted final spot in the opening credits, the one where you get your name AND your character's name. What's the rule on that? It seems to go to a famous actor who isn't the main star on a given show. Like Don Knotts on Three's Company. Yet Nancy McKeon got it on Facts of Life ("and Nancy McKeon as Jo"), when she was just a rookie like all the other actors. Who knows... RIP Bill Maxwell.
