Many viewers weren't happy that the passing of TV legend Jack Klugman, who played Oscar Madison on The Odd Couple, got very little airtime in the Emmy tribute. The tribute instead included a long memoriam to Glee's Cory Monteith.

Klugman's son Adam told The AP: "It’s an insult and it really seems typical of this youth-centric culture that has an extremely short attention span and panders to only a very narrow demographic of young adults."

Jane Lynch, who presented the Monteith speech, told TMZ that she was a huge fan of Klugman's, and if she were his son, she "might be upset too."
