Ingram is joining the Daily Entertainment Network, which is launching later this year.

It's difficult to picture Jamie Farr--the zany, cross-dressing Cpl. Max Klinger of TV's "MASH"--as the father of actor John Davidson, but that's what's in store for those who see "The Will Rogers Follies" this week at Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. Farr plays Clem Rogers, father of the cowboy comic and philosopher who's here personified by Davidson. Farr has a hard time picturing it, too. For one thing, at 62, he's only eight years Davidson's senior and also is of Lebanese descent.
