THE EMMY PEOPLE ARE WRONG – JACK KLUGMAN’S SON IS RIGHT
Jack Klugman’s son is absolutely right. Adam Klugman told The Hollywood Reporter that he is outraged because his father (who died this year at age 90) is not included in the special memorial tribute on Sunday’s Emmy show. The academy is featuring five special memorial salutes this year and Cory Monteith of Glee is among them, but not Klugman. Jack Klugman was a TV pioneer who spent five decades in our living rooms. He won 3 Emmys and sorry, but The Odd Couple trumps Glee any day. Adam says the Emmy organizers are touting Monteith to draw younger viewers. He’s right. It’s a cheap maneuver.
