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.”

OnMedia: My picks for TV’s top shows of 2009

By , December 22, 2009

On Milwaukee choose Community as one of the best TV shows of 2009:

1. NBC’s Thursday night comedies. Just as it was in the days of “Seinfeld” and “Cheers,” and “The Cosby Show” before that, NBC’s Thursday night is again must-see TV.

It starts at 7 p.m. with the newest entry, “Community,” created by ComedySportz alum Dan Harmon and featuring Marquette gradDanny Pudi. That’s followed by the most improved show of 2009, Amy Poehler‘s “Parks and Recreation,” which has moved beyond its roots as a clone of the documentary style of “The Office.”

This year’s “The Office” is dealing with the uncertainties of the economic mess we’re all in and “30 Rock” remains the daffiest show on television.

The best way to digest the night is to DVR the lineup and watch each episode twice, just so you don’t miss all the hidden gems.
