The Situation Tries to Teach Larry the Cable Guy About 'Jersey Shore' (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 10th 2011 3:00PM
Larry the Cable Guy doesn't seem like he's the biggest fan of 'Jersey Shore.' Guest-hosting for Regis on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Larry played a true-false game of "Situation or Not a Situation," with the Situation himself, Mike Sorrentino. Judging from the expression on Larry's face, he didn't much care for the Situation in which he found himself.

As Kelly Ripa read clues like, "A castmate hit a copcar while driving on the streets of Italy," and "two girls in the cast call themselves team Meatball and ended up in bed together after a trip to the Italian shore," Larry had to hold up a sign of the Situation if he thought they'd actually happened. He played along, but the self-avowed redneck didn't seem too interested in the latest 'Jersey Shore' hijinks.

100-Year Old Dorothy Custer Upstages Larry the Cable Guy on 'Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Dorothy Custer, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'There's a reason why you usually see the 100-year old guests on late night talk shows like 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) come out last. They've reached a point in their lives where they simply don't hold back anything, meaning they're usually fantastically entertaining guests.

Jay Leno had Dorothy Custer on, who was three weeks past her 100th birthday. She related a story about her trip to Universal Studios with the timing of a well-seasoned comedian.

"I had a skirt on and the wind was a-just blowing it like that, and I was hanging onto my hat." she explained. When a kid told her to pull down her dress instead of holding her hat, she retorted, "I don't care. What they see down there is 100 years old. This is a brand new hat."

Larry the Cable Guy Cracks Fallon Up With Snuggie Joke (VIDEO)

Larry the Cable Guy and Jimmy FallonLarry the Cable Guy was on fine form when he stopped by 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC).

He told Fallon that he almost didn't make it to the show because his grandmother had been involved in a tragic accident.

"[She] farted and set her Snuggie on fire." How horrific! But not to worry: Grannie's okay now. "She has a bad bladder and she peed herself out."

This led Larry and Fallon to ponder the unique appeal of the Snuggie, with Larry concluding that, "If you're too stupid to operate a blanket you deserve to be cold every now and then." We love the Snuggie, but concede that maybe he does have a point ...

Larry the Cable Guy Mixes It Up With Kristin Chenoweth on 'Regis' (VIDEO)

Larry the Cable Guy, Regis Philbin, and Kristin Chenoweth on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'If you're promoting anything this week on the TV talk show circuit, there's a good chance you'll be following Ryan Reynolds, whose 'Green Lantern' officially hits theaters Friday. On 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) Wednesday to promote 'Cars 2,' Larry the Cable Guy found a notable drop in enthusiasm when his turn in the interview chair came up.

Regis Philbin did his part to hype Larry, saying, "There's only one guy in the country who could follow Mr. Beautiful, and that's Larry the Cable Guy." But Larry noticed when the two were announced as guests at the top of the show, Reynolds' name got guest co-host Kristin Chenoweth excited. Not so much for Larry, who feigned indignation. "Here I stand, three hours a day in the gym, and I don't get nothing," he said.

"What are you doing there, hanging out?" replied Chenoweth. It's not all Larry's fault. He plays Mater, the tow truck in 'Cars 2,' and he said he had to gain weight for the role.

History Channel gives new show to Larry the Cable Guy

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 25th 2010 4:05PM
Once again, I'm forced to ask the question: what the hell is going on here? Have we crossed over into the bizarro world? Is up now down? Has black become white? Did NBC give Jay Leno a swift kick in the ass for scoring such low ratings and replaced him with Chevy Chase?

The History Channel is giving comedian Larry the Cable Guy his own travelogue show.

The comic told Punchline Magazine that The United States of Larry will feature the large forearmed funnymaker traveling the States in search of "folks with interesting jobs, hobbies and ways of life." So what part of that involves history? Has one of the "interesting" people have created some sort of time machine?

Comedy Central goes all-out to roast Larry the Cable Guy - VIDEOS

by Nick Zaino, posted Mar 12th 2009 5:24PM
Larry the Cable GuyIt seems Jeffrey Ross already has the line of the night for Sunday's Roast of Larry the Cable Guy (Comedy Central, 10 PM), which isn't surprising, because he's a longtime Friars Club member. In the trailer, Ross slams, "This is ridiculous, he's not even a real person! Why don't we just roast Dora the Explorer or Popeye the Sailor Man?"

Fictional character he may be, Mr. The Cable Guy has attracted Jeff Foxworthy, Warren Sapp, Toby Keith, Gary Busey, Maureen McCormick, fellow comic Reno Collier, and Roast regulars like Ross, Greg Giraldo, and Nick DiPaolo. "Queen of Mean" Lisa Lampanelli will serve as the first female Roastmaster for the Comedy Central series (the Friars, originators of the roast, have only had a couple of female Roastmasters -- Susie Essman did the Smothers Brothers and Joy Behar did Danny Aiello).

TV Squad Ten: Stars who should have been roasted Instead of Larry the Cable Guy

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 27th 2009 11:08AM
Ah, the celebrity roast. Comedy Central resurrected the tried and true comedian ass-kiss off with hilarious specials featuring Denis Leary, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget and William #*$&$ing Shatner. Then came the capper: a roast of music legend Willie Nelson. It was a shift in evolution so great, it could have made Charles Darwin buy into the theory of intelligent design.

Then the network caused a global groan so loud that it shifted the tectonic plates when they announced that Nelson had to cancel and they would replace him with Larry the Cable Guy.

It's such an obvious and safe choice that might be a good recipe for ratings, but it's a sure fire recipe for boring. Here are the iconic stars who would have made much better kindling for a white hot comedy roast.

Comedy Central announces the Roast of...Larry the Cable Guy?!?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2009 11:01AM
Comedy Central's roasts were one of the few things the network used to do right post-South Park. They didn't go for the big names. They went for the funniest names, the people who lended themselves to the kind of mean-spirited mockery that let comics be honest but also let the audience know they were just having fun.

This time around, it's hard to see how any self-respecting comic that makes fun of Larry the Cable Guy will not let the audience know they are just joking.

Comedy Central announced that the hunting cap-wearing, sleeveless shirt-wearing, catchphrase-drilling stand-up comic will be the next "celebrity" to take the hot seat in their annual roast.

Family Guy: Boys Do Cry

by Brett Love, posted Apr 30th 2007 11:59AM
family guy(S05E15) After better than a month off, finally a new episode of Family Guy. I'm not sure I understand the thinking behind the scheduling of the show this year, but the list of behaviors from the networks that I don't understand is a long one. So, we'll take what we can get. Whatever the reasoning, it was nice to have the Griffins back with a fresh adventure.

I think I probably came into this one with my expectations set a little high. Those previews that revealed the family packing up and taking a trip put the thought in the back of my mind that this could be one of those classic episodes. It called to mind the season three episode "To Love and Die in Dixie." Unfortunately, now having seen it, it wasn't a classic.

Watch Larry the Cable Guy before he was Larry the Cable Guy - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 23rd 2006 6:29PM
Larry the Cable GuyDid anyone see the profile of Larry the Cable Guy on 60 Minutes last week? It was pretty much a puff piece, talking about how Larry became the biggest stand-up comedian on the face of the planet despite the fact that his comedy isn't exactly in that "make you think" category that, say, Doug Stanhope or Dave Attell might be in. Heck, even Dane Cook's comedy seems sophisticated compared to Larry's. But Larry's successful because he tells goofy jokes that appeal to a wide range of people. He's not my cup of tea, but I've laughed at a few of his jokes. Despite his "bumpkin" image, I can definitely see how so many people like the guy.

Anyone who watched the report probably noticed that Dan Whitney, who created the Larry persona a number of years ago with the help of Blue Collar Comedy producer J.P. Williams, didn't quite have the same severe southern accent that he does on stage. Makes sense; Larry's a character and the interview was with Dan, not Larry. But in his pre-Larry days, Whitney didn't have an accent at all. How do I know this? Because of clips like the one after the jump, that shows what Whitney's stand-up routine was like before Larry came into his life.

Comedy Central orders animated Larry the Cable Guy pilot

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 13th 2006 11:01AM
Larry the Cable GuyLarry the Cable Guy cannot be stopped. He's not only one of the most successful stand-up comedians around these days, he's one of the four-headed comedy monster known as the "Blue Collar Comedy" team, and he played a tow truck in the Pixar movie Cars. Now, he's going to have his own cartoon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Comedy Central has picked up an animated pilot that Larry co-created and co-wrote with Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow. He will provide the voice of the main character, the co-owner of a cable station that has a lot of wacky programming ideas. In true cliched sitcom fashion, the other owner is a classy woman who completely disagrees with the programming choices Larry's character makes.
