Jerry Lewis Is Out…TODAY!

A few months ago, we found out this would be Jerry Lewis’s final year as host of the Labor Day MDA Telethon.  That is apparently NOT the case.  It was just announced Jerry will NOT be returning for this year’s event!  Effective today, he is no longer the national chairman for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

I am SO bummed.  Watching this telethon has been a tradition in my house for decades – for a myriad of reasons.

Don’t worry.  The telethon will not end.  While MDA is hiring a new host, Jerry’s cast of co-hosting characters will remain the same.  I gotta say: I REALLY miss Jerry and Ed McMahon together.  It made for some “interesting” comedy!

HERE is the story from the LA Times.

    The telethon was not the same without Jerry Lewis. Would have been nice if he could have made a few appearances and sang the song at the end. Sure did miss him.
