Man, this sucks.
Jerry Lewis will not host the annual MDA telethon for the first time ever due to a sudden illness...Ed McMahon will take his place as full time host this year.

Lewis has battled a number of illnesses over the last 12 years but always managed to host the 21.5 hour show...even on oxygen.

A taped opening filmed on August 31st on the Vegas strip with him stopping traffic with an orchestra at 2 am will still be shown but Lewis is too ill to do the show live.

They couldn't find anyone younger than Ed McMahon?

I just turned on the telethon and Jerry Lewis was there! His sickness must have been imaginary. Glad he could make it. Wouldn't be the same without him.
