Ed McMahon,the former sidekick of Johnny Carson on "Tonight Show" turned commercial pitchman, has died.

McMahon's death came after years of financial turmoil, a threatened foreclosure on his home, and a terrible fall that resulted in a broken neck.

Publicist Howard Bragman said McMahon died early Tuesday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center surrounded by his family. Bragman didn't give a cause of death, saying only that McMahon had a "multitude of health problems the last few months."

McMahon was 86.
