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.”

NBC Gets its Mid-Season Report Card

By , December 7, 2009

DVR Play Ground gave NBC a “D” in their Mid-Season report card. One of the bright points– Community:
The Good: The Biggest Loser. Three words that not only sum up NBC’s only bright-spot ratings wise this fall, but also the fact that the downward losing spiral that the Peacock Network currently finds itself in has not just one, but two benefits for us TV Addicts. (1) It has set the network’s bar for renewal far lower, allowing little-watched laughers such as PARKS AND RECREATION, 30 ROCK (and hopefully COMMUNITY) to flourish, and (2) Forced NBC to try harder, as evidence by recent deals that has the network paying top dollar for big name talent such as J.J. Abrams and David Tennant.
