SO the H-P Pavilion is now the S-A-P Pavilion..
Orchard Supply Hardware is selling a lot of its stores to Lowes…and the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon is now called the MDA Show of Strength TV.
My times have changed. My Mom must be turning over in her grave about now. That was our Labor Day weekend forever. She and I would stay up all night watching Jerry and all of his guests. And yes, she did give money…not a lot but she did make a pledge every year. Jerry was forced off the show a year or two ago and even before that, the allotted time of the telethon was reduced and the number of TV stations that carried it went way down..Now this year, it’s been reduced to two hours…9-11 pm on Sunday on ABC. It will be part of the ABC Labor Day weekend…and the executive producer of the show is now R.A. Clark who happens to be Dick Clark’s son. I’m guessing the emcees for the 2 hour telethon will be people from Good Morning America like Sam Champion…
I’m glad my Mom is not here to see…She would be so upset
