Muscular Dystrophy Association Telethon Earns Lots Of $$$ Without Jerry Lewis!

muscular dystrophy telethon earns money without jerry lewis

Guess that's pretty much the end of Jerry's association with the MDA telethon!

Last month, we learned that Jerry Lewis was NOT returning to host this year's Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon, which aired on Sept 4.

We were wondering how the telethon would fare without him, and sure enough it did VERY well!

The MDA telethon brought in its best numbers since 2008, raising $61.5 million, which is $2.6 million more than last year. Impressive!

American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe co-hosted the event with Jann Carl instead of Jerry, and the two said that Lewis had "retired" during their broadcast.

More than anything, we're just glad to see that people are still donating SO MUCH $$$ to this important cause! Truly inspiring!

Thanks for all the years supporting the cause, Jerry! Much appreciated!

Jerry Lewis Will Not Host His Telethon This Year

Filed under: TV NewsSuper Seniors

But whether this is a permanent arrangement or not remains to be seen. We'd hate to think he'll never get a proper send off.

Though he brushed off the rumors earlier in the week, it has been confirmed that Jerry Lewis will not appear in the annual muscular dystrophy telethon that he has hosted since 1966. This was poised to be the famed comedian's last year and the Muscular Dystrophy Association was ready to send him off with quite a swan song.

However, the announcement
