Jerry Lewis is no longer MDA's national chairman

Comedy legend Jerry Lewis, 85, has completed his run as the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s national chairman, according to a release from the MDA. Lewis, who had still been slated to appear at this September’s event and sing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” for the last time.

Last week at the TCA Press Tour, Lewis was cryptic about his future involvement with the telethon, telling reporters, “It’s none of your business.” During that discussion, he also slammed reality TV shows like American Idol and The Biggest Loser. Oddly enough: American Idol producer Nigel Lythoe and Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney were slated to cohost this year’s telethon.
