Joel McHale: I’m Always an NBC Fan, Even ‘The Biggest Loser’

By , March 5, 2010

“I think NBC has always been at the cutting edge of network comedy,” McHale told Fancast at Wednesday’s PaleyFest 2010 event for his sitcom. “Thursday night comedy on NBC is one of the most famous nights in network TV and has been for years. To be included in the same group as Amy Poehler, Steve Carell and Tina Fey, just to be in that company, is awesome.”

At the suggestion of trash-talking his own network, McHale joked, “Trash NBC? Why would I do that? No, hey, I love ‘The Biggest Loser,’ I really do.”

On this Thursday’s episode, McHale disrobes and displays a sculpted physique for a nude pool game, opposite veteran comedy actor Blake Clark. He shared details of the nude shoot with Fancast.

“As soon as I found out I was going to be naked, which was about a week and a half or two weeks in advance, at the table read, I said, ‘Oh, I should now starve myself of all sugar and all carbs and try to do some push-ups,’” McHale says. “I was like, ‘Oh boy, here we go.’ I had a lot of eggs, which was really pleasant for my family. The nudey underwear was so tight and small, I could put regular underwear over it. If you put tighty-whiteys over it, you wouldn’t even know.”
