LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jack Klugman's son says the exclusion of his father from an Emmy Awards tribute is an insult to the memory of the TV veteran.

"I think it's criminal," said Adam Klugman about the omission of his father from the tribute on Sunday night's Emmy show.

Jack Klugman - a three-time Emmy winner - starred in "The Odd Couple" and "Quincy."

Said his son: "My dad was at the inception of television and helped build it in the early days."

It was announced this week that five salutes would be presented at the Emmys, including one for Cory Monteith of "Glee," who died in July of an overdose.

Adam Klugman took exception to the inclusion of Monteith over his father. "He was a kid who had won no Emmys," said Klugman.
