Taped MDA fundraiser set for 3 hours on Sunday

The Associated Press, Saturday, September 1, 2012, 12:49am (PDT)

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It won't have a tote board or Jerry Lewis.

And it won't be from Las Vegas.

But the goal remains the same for an annual Muscular Dystrophy Association television fundraiser set to air Sunday.

The renamed "MDA Show of Strength" will feature three hours of taped appearances by entertainers including country music star Carrie Underwood, pop singer Gavin DeGraw, alternative pop group OneRepublic, Black Eyed Peas frontman and songstress Carole King.

MDA spokeswoman Roxan Olivas says the show was pre-produced and taped in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, Tenn.

It is set to run on various TV and cable channels in 150 markets around the country from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Central and Mountain time and 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time.
