CULVER CITY, CA – Tues., Oct. 4, 2016 – getTV delivers a night of laughs with an all-new Tuesday lineup featuring THE JEFF FOXWORTHY SHOW and THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW, airing every Tuesday starting on October 11. The weekly block will highlight three back-to-back episodes of THE JEFF FOXWORTHY SHOW from 8 p.m. ET to 9:30 p.m. ET, followed by three back-to-back episodes of THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW from 9:30 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET.
Each week kicks off with a trio of episodes of the 1995 hit THE JEFF FOXWORTHY SHOW at 8 p.m. ET, starring beloved funnyman Jeff Foxworthy as a southern air conditioner repairman feeling hilariously out of his element in a small Indiana town. The show also features Haley Joel Osment in an early television role as Foxworthy’s young son Matt, four years before his breakthrough role in THE SIXTH SENSE. Jay Mohr, Bill Engvall, and JERRY MAGUIRE standout Jonathan Lipnicki were added to the cast in season two.
Then, stay tuned for three more episodes of the 2007 sitcom THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW at 9:30 p.m. ET, starring comedian Bill Engvall as a family counselor who is rarely able to understand his own family. In addition to co-stars Tim Meadows and Nancy Travis, the series notably featured a then-17-year-old Jennifer Lawrence in one of the Oscar®-winner’s earliest starring roles, stealing the show as Engvall’s teenage daughter, Lauren.
“With this new block, getTV is proud to bring back two of America’s best-loved funnymen to television, as we deliver the ultimate blue collar comedy binge-watching experience to our viewers,” said Jeff Meier, SVP of Programming, getTV. “Not only is it a great chance for our audience to reconnect with two sitcoms that they may have missed during their original runs, but it also offers a rare opportunity to see two of Young Hollywood’s most acclaimed actors years before they burst onto the scene in the trademark roles that would ultimately solidify them as stars.”
