    that is the Emmys for you. Monteith was young and beautiful and his picture sells, they dont care to honor a man that tv had all but forgotten he was even alive. Hell look at the way tv "honored" their deaths. Monteith was on the news for a few days and got a nod in Glee. Kluggman got a box in Yahoo News for a few hours and a "oh we lost an old tv star" sign on the evening news wrap up. The execs only care what they can use to rope in viewers. 17 - 22 girls are not going to tune into the emmys normally, this could suck them in for one more good cry. fucking sheep think he is a tortured soul. But he did save us the news coverage of another child star meltdown.

    I'd care more if I ever watched one of those inane award shows. I can't believe people tune into broadcast television (of all things) to watch those empty heads congratulate themselves on playing pretend.

    Corey Haim's resume was a LOT deeper than Cory Monteith...

    I don't even know who Cory Monteith is. And he sure as shit didn't star in License to Drive so fuck him.

    ...that aint right wtf is wrong with these people. jack klugman gave a lot to tv, great in the odd couple. unless he was a real douche to work with this doesn't make any sense. they can make room for both memorials or forget the kid from glee if you have to leave one out. do a really gay lipsynch and dance number in his honor.

    That's what happens when the target ratings demographic is under 25. Most people that age have no idea who Jack Kugman (or, for that matter, Larry Hagman or Jean Stapleton) was, and are proud of it.

    I guess 3-4 years on a shitty show trumps being on TV for 40 some odd years with several influential shows to his credit.

    I asked Jack Klugman a question.

    He croaked.

    What a joke. Monteith was easily the worst part of Glee and deserves no recognition for being a no talent junkie.
