Jerry Lewis has worked his heart out for the MDA. In an age where celebrities adopt a different cause every year or so, Jerry Lewis stayed with the MDA for decades. I've been watching the telethon for as long as I can remember, and Jerry was always there. If he's too old/sick to host the telethon anymore, they should tape some segments and maybe bring him out in the end to sing "You'll Never Walk Alone."
I don't understand his being shown the door so unexpectedly. The "new talent" is always been a part of the show, but they do one song and they're out the door. Lewis' cronies would man the phones for a while, hang out and sign autographs.
