It was sad what happened to Jerry. In effect, he was unceremoniously shown the door after decades of selfless service. At first I thought it was done because of his advancing age and his inability to do the job. However, I see that Jerry still performs occasionally and seems to have all his faculties.

Whatever the circumstances were behind Jerry's dismissal, the telethon format is now outdated. People have far more entertainment options than they did 40 years ago, so the idea of a lengthy entertainment program no longer is appealing.

I heard about it after the fact because by now there was so much more to watch. I remember as a child being very annoyed that the only 3 TV stations we were able to pick up was showing the same boring show.
