AA Breaking News: (Please Dear God No!) FOX Is Considering A Weekly Late-Night Show Hosted By Joe Buck

Monday, October 08, 2007


I don't even have words to describe how depressing this is, so I will just pass along what I've learned. FOX wants to give our friend Joe Buck a Late-Night Talk Show. Not only that, but they've already completed the pilot to pitch to FOX execs. According to sources close to the situation the idea recently came about when noodling on Jay Leno's retirement and Conan's move to the 11pm slot. There seems to be opportunity there to finally compete in the Late Night Arena for FOX's and their first and only choice was Buck.

Here's the info I could find on a Broadcasting and Cable......

Fox is considering a weekly, half-hour late-night show hosted by its lead sports personality. The network's entertainment division just quietly completed a pilot for the show in New York.

The format currently under consideration would include both interviews and comedy and be set in front of a small studio audience.
Yes, that's right.....comedy folks. From what I gather this won't even be a Sports-based show, FOX is making Joe Buck into the next Leno right before our eyes. I can't believe I didn't see this coming sooner.

If this does come to fruition, and you watch this show......you are dead to me. We need to destroy this monster before it even rears its ugly, unfunny, and smug head.

On the brightside, maybe this will get him out of the booth for good.

Joe Buck and comedy go hand-in-hand if you ask me.

They aren't going to stop until FOX's schedule is nothing but Joe Buck and Ryan Seacrest.

I think you might be looking at this backwards. Let's just say Buck gets his show, sells his soul to the devil, and it's a success.

You don't have to watch his late night show AND we'll never have to listen to him do any more games.

I do believe there's a reason why comedians tend to do late night talk shows...

Jack Buck is spinning in his grave at his son selling out.

This is OT, but I thought I'd pass along today's gem from our favorite radio talking head, Shrutebag: "Somebody left his nuts on my desk, so I ate them."
Does that qualify for the Pammies?

Maybe the show could just be 30 minutes of videos of athletes doing end zone celebrations and Buck being offended, disgusted and outraged by it.

Is Joe Buck following in the footsteps of Keith Olbermann? That's what Countdown is, a comedy talk show, right?

BTW: The pic of Buck has creepy porn star (circa 1966) feel...eck.

Hey, if it keeps Buck from ruining football and baseball broadcasts I'm all for it.

Though if they had a segment like Jay suggests, only with celeb idiots behaving badly, it could be gold.

*shot of Britney Spears in a drug-induced haze*
Joe Buck: WHAT A DISGUSTING DISPLAY!
*shot of Lindsey Lohan coked up*
Joe Buck: WHAT A DISGUSTING DISPLAY!

And so forth.

I wonder if he'll do the first 75% of the show and then have to have Curt Menafee come in and finish.

Oh yeah, more Dierdorf farting, puking and burping, and less of Joe Buck, gay pornstar.

Maybe they can have Tim McCarver in the "Ed McMahon" role. Kissing Buck's butt, laughing at everything he says. Maybe McCarver can be like an Alan Kalter and have somebody beat him up or poor water on him-perfect. Maybe Deion makes a cameo and douses McCarver again and again and again! Haha! This has possibilities!

Joe Buck is only where he is at because of his father, the guy is a weasil that used his daddy's name to get where he is today. Fuck Joe Buck I'm going to start a website JoeBuckSucks.com, Who's Joining ??

I'm watching the 2008 world series game 3 and Joe Buck keeps insisting that Carl Crawford was out on an infield bunt single. None of the countless replay angles has come close to proving Crawford out but Buck keeps insisting it was an obvious mistake by the 1st base umpire. Unless Buck saw a replay we didn't see, there was no physical possibility that Howard could have tagged him in time after grabbing the ball with his bare hand. Buck, you're clearly biased. Fox, please spare us from having to watch the vastly inferior Buck-McCarver crew work the Series year after year. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

Joe Buck is the biggest piece of shit I ever saw. He sucks at his job and should never be aloud to announce ever again. I'm with you on the joebucksucks.com sight and I hope he never comes back to Philly because he'll get tore up.

Joe Buck is a cock-chugging woman and shouldn't be on my TV. He should be bagging my groceries, retarded no penis fuck head.

Clean my local bar's toilet Joe Buck. You talentless, no brain, can't call a game even if it was little league fudge packing looser.
