Jerry Lewis Telethon returns this weekend

The Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Association Labor Day Telethon starts Sunday, September 6th at 9 pm and runs through Monday, September 7th at 6:30 pm (check your local listings). With the recent passing of Telethon sidekick Ed McMahon (as well as the bestowing of Jerry's Academy Award), this year's broadcast is bound to be even more poignant than usual.

It was twenty years ago that Tabloid Baby's author provided the first and last intimate behind-the-scenes look at the telethon and the man at the center. The entire story is recounted in the book, Tabloid Baby.
