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.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?
"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.''
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".
