The Bill Engvall Show

I can’t remember the last time I was actually looking forward to a new show. Now with that said, there is certainly a 50/50 chance it will be a flop. Comedians coming from stand up to television have either been a smash, such as Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Allen, or a total flop, like Jeff Foxworthy.

I am not sure that the reason for their success or failure can totally be put on their shoulders. Although the material seems to wrap around their past routines, it still takes a lot more than just good stand up to translate to a successful show. Like, supporting cast members, production and PR.

Here’s hoping that The Bill Engvall Show is a smash, he has been my favorite comedian for years and I think he has what it takes to make the move to sitcom.

Good luck to Bill Engvall!

The premiere is tonight, Tuesday July 17, 2007 on TBS at 9/8c.
