Bob Saget Wants to Submit a Tape of Himself to 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (VIDEO)

Bob Saget, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Bob Saget isn't proud of the story he told on 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), but he must have felt it was important for him to share it. He left absolutely no detail out, and did a masterful job of building a growing sense of dread, anticipation and suspense as the story progressed.

From the details of him wearing a robe and Ugg slippers to the fact that there was a ladder near a pool, and a jacuzzi was involved, we had an idea of where it was going. But still the exact scenario was pretty funny.

To hang a hummingbird feeder, he hooked a wire to a hammer and climbed the ladder to throw the hammer and wire over a tree branch. "I threw it, the hammer came off and came at me and I fell off the ladder into the jacuzzi," he admitted.

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 2nd 2010 12:00PM
It's one of the saddest moments of youth: when the home you grew up in is sold off to strangers. And now it's about to happen to the house that all America grew up with.

Yes, folks, it's true: the house featured on the beloved family sitcom 'Full House' is being offered up for sale to the highest bidder. According to NBC Los Angeles, the stately Victorian home, which was featured in the opening credits for most of the show's eight seasons, is on the block with an asking price of $4.1 million.

A&E Picks Up 'Bob Saget's Strange Days': Which Groups Should He Travel With?

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Nov 17th 2009 1:15PM
Bob SagetComedian Bob Saget is going on a few road trips next year.

A&E and the longtime television personality have agreed to produce a new travel series under the working title 'Bob Saget's Strange Days,' in which he explores off-beat communities and subcultures. So far, the show will have Saget hanging out with biker gangs, mail-order brides, partying Amish teenagers and survivalists. An initial order of seven one-hour episodes are scheduled to air at some point in 2010, according to Variety.

The show is said to stem from Saget's stand-up routine, and will explore alternative lifestyles while trying to uncover a more emotive element. In a statement released, senior vice president Robert Sharenow said the show "will reveal hidden corners of the real America and the real Bob Saget, who is even funnier and more relatable when just being himself than any other role he's ever played."

It's bad news for The Goode Family and Surviving Suburbia

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 9th 2009 12:00PM
The Goode FamilyIt looks like The Goode Family and Surviving Suburbia won't be surviving. ABC confirmed that Friday night's airings of both episodes season finales are in fact their respective series finales. I've sampled both series at one point or another in their runs, and this fate was inevitable.

It was great seeing the "other" Bob Saget get some TV time, but Surviving Suburbia just wasn't good television. Maybe if you're a television fan who's never seen a family sitcom, then the formulaic plotlines and dialogue won't bother you. In a way, I had the same problem with The Goode Family.

However, with the latter, it seemed like they had the potential to grow into something better. I think in the beginning they were too bogged down by their schtick: a family of do-gooders, recycling and living green and all of that crap.

Greatest TV Dads

John GoodmanReal-life dads are sometimes preoccupied with their careers and distracted by life's many complications. Happily, on TV, all dads have plenty of quality time to share with their kids, while dispensing encouraging words and occasional tough love.

Maybe that's because TV dads never spend much time at work. (We're pretty sure everyone's fathers would sign up for that!) Step into the wonderful make-believe world where every day is Father's Day, and join us as we count down our 20 favorite TV dads.

'Full House' Cast: Where Are They Now?

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jun 2nd 2009 6:00AM
Full HouseRatings for 'Full House,' which began its run in '87, were low at first, with critics panning the cheese factor of the San Francisco-set sitcom. For its second season, ABC moved the Tanners to the family-friendly TGIF lineup, and the show about a widower raising his three daughters with the help of his brother-in-law and best friend found its groove. (Cheese factor? What cheese factor?)

Running eight seasons, 'Full House' became iconic pop candy for Generation X. Just a taste of what it gave us: eye-rolling references for later dorm-room talks, John Stamos' "bad guys just need a hug" lesson -- and the Olsen twins, adorable-little-Michelle-turned-billion-dollar-empire-controlling entertainment tycoons. Name another sitcom with a track record like that ... Exactly.

Surviving Suburbia didn't, but we'll be Better Off Ted for it even sooner

by Jason Hughes, posted May 31st 2009 10:29AM
Better Off TedSurviving Suburbia just can't catch a break. It starts as a high profile return vehicle for Bob Saget over on The CW. Hell, the guy even hosts their fall preview. But it never shows up. So production company ABC snags it and puts it on their air this past winter. But only for a bit before yanking it. Don't worry, they said, it'll be back this summer; which translates as we're burning off the rest of the episodes. And now they're not even doing that!

So I hope you like The Goode Family, because effective immediately Surviving Suburbia is being yanked in favor of back-to-back Goode. I'm thinking online or DVD may be the only chances left to see the last of Suburbia, if anyone even cares. It's not all bad news, though. Apparently to make us feel better about losing Bob (he's still narrating HIMYM so he's still got a job for awhile), they're bringing back the already renewed Better Off Ted with new episodes starting June 23 at 9 Eastern. Maybe with less competition, the goofy workplace comedy can find the audience it deserves.

Bob Saget may be returning to ABC

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 29th 2009 11:00AM
Bob SagetIt looks like Bob Saget might be going back to the world of ABC sitcoms. His previously-abandoned-by-The-CW vehicle Surviving Suburbia is looking to find a home on the network that brought us Saget in the 90's via Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos.

I don't know much about Surviving Suburbia outside of its premise (a couple living in the suburbs get new wacky next-door neighbors). It sounds too much like those formulaic sitcoms that I loathe. Their best bet for promoting something interesting is having Saget act like the pervert he acts like in his stand-up routine (as seen in the movie The Aristocrats). Make the show more for adults and make Saget a dislikable main character similar in execution to Archie Bunker.

Still, with a title like Surviving Suburbia, it's more than likely that the show is going to be formulaic and bland (think According to Jim). There's likely a reason The CW abandoned it (other than Saget) . Sadly, as a result of his television work in the 90's, "bland" is what Saget is mostly known for.

Bob Saget + sex jokes about the Olsens = awkward

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 6th 2008 10:01AM
bob saget roastBob Saget's Comedy Central roast was filmed Sunday night, and the typically raunchy affair may have crossed the line a little bit. Despite being a famously foul-mouthed comedian himself, Saget is best known for playing warm and fuzzy Danny Tanner on Full House. It was because of this famous role that most of the jokes centered on two of his diminutive co-stars: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Whether it was Gilbert Gottfried suggesting that Saget seduced the twins with chocolate milkshakes or Uncle Jesse himself, John Stamos, saying things like, "The whole time Bob and I were doing Full House, he was also hosting America's Funniest Home Videos. His entire job consisted of saying 'Take a look at this' which is what he used to say to Mary Kate in her dressing room," the subject of inappropriate relations with children was apparently a high source of comedy.

Tough times for Ed McMahon

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 4th 2008 10:24AM
edIt's no secret that the country is in severe financial straits, especially people who are caught in the real estate merry-go-round where they find themselves unable to pay their monthly mortgage. Amazingly, someone as seemingly well-heeled and secure as Ed McMahon is one of those people struggling. Johnny Carson's sidekick on The Tonight Show is on the verge of losing his Beverly Hills home through foreclosure.

Published reports claim that Ed McMahon's home on Mulholland Drive, part of the gated hilltop development called The Summit, has been on the market for sale since 2006. Unfortunately, moving real estate in a depressed market is very tough. Complicating matters for McMahon is the neighborhood, in particular, one neighbor: Britney Spears.

Bob Saget sticking around at NBC

by Anna Johns, posted Oct 19th 2006 12:48PM
1 vs 100 logoNBC thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new game show, 1 Vs. 100, which is hosted by comedian Bob Saget. As Joel explained before last week's series premiere, the show requires very little skill. Contestants face 100 other people in a pop culture quiz. The idea is to knock off as many members of the 'mob' by answering questions correctly ('mobsters' have to answer a question incorrectly to be booted). The dollar amount goes up as the contestant gets questions right and each 'mobster' is ejected from the game. Eliminating the entire 'mob' wins the contestant $1 million.

NBC has ordered 10 more episodes of 1 Vs. 100, which brings the total to 15 so far this season. When it debuted last week, the game show had 12.6 million viewers, which is not too shabby for flailing NBC. For the curious, the next episode airs on Friday at 9 pm, which pushes the season premiere for Las Vegas back one week.
