Joe Buck Talk Show Still Going Forward, Won't Be On FOX

Monday, March 10, 2008

I've been patiently waiting just like you for that Joe Buck Talk Show to debut and there's been nothing. It's highly upsetting. I mean what am I supposed to make fun of when March is over? Baseball??? Ha. Well it appears that the show is still being shopped around because FOX has already declined.

It now looks as if the new TV show Buck is working on, if it comes to fruition, will be on a network other than Fox. Buck and Piedmont are pushing a program that includes skits, interviews and perhaps questions from the audience to guests in what would be a free-flowing format unlike traditional late-night talk programs.

"We've had interest from a number of networks, but it's not going to be on Fox as it now stands,'' he said. "They want me in a more traditional talk-show (format). What we did felt good, and I'd like to try that vein of the show and not do the same old same old.''
Oooh! Skits? That's an awesome idea. No Talk Shows do skits these days? What's that??? Oh they do them every night? Gotcha. But Joe says it's not the same old same old. Who am I to believe?

Oh and in case you were wondering, "they want me in a more traditional talk-show" is TV speak for "they know it's going to suck".

I guess Buck's show can take over Dennis Miller's time slot on Versus.

Stephen A., Joe Buck, Dennis Miller. Do they own incriminating pics of television executives? I love the way TV works. They decide that you will like somebody. Then they give them 19 TV shows. Then the 20th comes, and we finally get tired of fighting it and he becomes famous. And then they say "see? We told you he had talent!"

I'm holding out for the Jim Nantz late-night talk show, where he'd interview golfers, coaches and every New England Patriot who's ever played for them.

Still looking for a network, eh? I hear the Eighth Circle of Hell is looking for a new method of torture, give them a call. (The Ninth already bought eternal rights to Quite Frankly with Screamin' A. Smith.)

Well Bob Costas can't have ALL the sports talk shows.

This better not replace Inside The NFL. I've lost faith in HBO programming. In Treatment is addictive for all the wrong reasons and the other shows stink. Most of their good TV Movies were actually feature films that weren't considered box office material or were orginally from the BBC.

You know what we need? A John Madden talk show.

HBO programming is as solid as ever, Entourage and Big Love are very good shows. Inside the NFL, was, as the execs said, just too late to be relevant...who wants to see highlights of Sunday's games on a Thursday?

And how bad does a show have to be for FOX to turn it down? This is the network that has given Christopher Titus a TV show.
