Last year when NBC announced that they were sending Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to Asia for a docusries called Better Late Than Never, I have been anxiously waiting for this show to debut. Just like the title, Better Late Than Never, almost a year after they filmed their trip, it finally has a premiere date. It will debut on August 23rd and it looks like it will be the best comedy to grace our televisions in a real long time. Yet, only one comedian and two actors are part of it and it’s unscripted.
Not only should you be prepared to laugh until your cry, you will also learn a lot about The Orient as they try not cause an International incident. Which looks like they might’ve according to that trailer.
Jeff Dye has been in the business for less than a decade and he has come a long way, baby! He went from being a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2008 to being a contestant on this summer’s I Can Do That for them and now he’s traveling Asia with 4 legends in the sports and TV world with the Peacock network. He is currently in Thailand with Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman, William Shatner and Henry Winkler filming the docuseries Better Late Than Never.
Now that might not sound like he has come a long way, but these photos that he shared from his past today proves it. When he was in Wisconsin, he posed with the statue of The Fonz there and now he is posing with the real thing. And his excitement in both photos just brings a smile to my face, and I figured it would do the same to yours.
I can’t wait for Better Late Than Never to debut on NBC because if that picture is any hint what it is going to be like, it is going to be the best thing on television this season!
NBC announced their newest reality show today and it has the potential to be the best thing ever. Better Late Than Never is going to send Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to Asia and make them survive on their own without any help from everyone. Basically The Fonz can fish, The Shat can use Priceline, the Boxer can bring his grill, the football colorist can be that funny looking American they want to take pictures with for money and I am sure they’re things that Jeff Dye learned on I Can Do That that will come in useful somehow.
Still confused by the show? Here’s the description from the press release:
Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye will embark on the ultimate international excursion with no assistants, no limousines and no lattes, in search of an intimate, life-changing experience. The one-hour series will begin production in August, traveling to Tokyo, Kyoto, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Chang Mai before heading home.
The five will navigate their way through each city â€” communicating with the local population, immersing themselves in local traditions and enjoying exotic food â€” all the while dealing with the unexpected twists and turns that any trip presents. As they check off items on their own personal â€œbucket list,â€ the five will rely on each other for support and encouragement and, in the process, demonstrate that friendship is the ultimate gift.
Doesn’t that sound like it will be happy day whenever it airs? Hopefully, it won’t jump the shark like one of Winkler’s other shows!
John Stamos was playing with the Beach Boys the other night and he was joined on the stage by three familiar faces. They are The Fonz, Ralph Malph and Potsie aka Henry Winkler, Donny Most and Anson Williams. Looks like it was happy days for all of them and it was also a full house as the four of them tried to fit in the photo.
I guess Richie Cunningham aka Ron Howard wasn’t there because Uncle Jesse told him to “sit on it.”
In all seriousness, how awesome is it to see Arnold’s biggest customers together again like that. They haven’t aged since the show went off the air almost 31 years ago. Can you believe it has been that long because that show has been airing somewhere every day since then.
Henry Winkler is the nicest guy in Hollywood, so I was shocked that a TMZ photographer actually asked him if he has ever done the Urban Dictionary version of the Winkler. What is the Winkler? It is, “A non-verbal form of communication used by men and women to initiate a hook-up and/or long-term relationship. The winkler consists of unzipping one’s pants and waving one’s penis at women until one of the women winks at the man doing the winkler thus confirming the hook-up.” As if he ever would. He’s too nice to do that and too nice to be asked about it.
So what happened is, at first the chat started off normally and the guy asked him if he knew what his surname, Winkler, means. The Fonz did not, but the photog did. Then after he explained what his last name means in an Ancestory book, the guy then told him what it means on UrbanDiction.com. Winkler was horrified, and yet remained polite as they crossed the street together. Then when the photog continued on with the questioning, Arthur Fonzarelli politely told him “I’m going now.” Finally ending their conversation in a way that proves why he’s the nicest guy in Hollywood by saying, “And I’m very happy to chat with you.” Seriously, how can you not love him? Most celebrities would’ve ended their conversation with I’m going now, but he ended it by telling the guy he was happy to talk to him. What a genuinely nice person he is. So much so, I just want to hug him through the computer. Don’t you want to do the same?
Not only because he is so nice, but you just want to comfort him after that line of questioning. Plus, it’s not like the Winkler is referring to him as the Tony Danza is referring to the Who’s the Boss star? Has anyone asked the Taxi star about that?
Henry Winkler\ went from a ’50s cool guy to a far out ’60s dude. So why is papa a rolling stone? It is for an upcoming episode of Children’s Hospital. Even though I am used to seeing the nicest guy in Hollywood as The Fonz, I like him just as much looking like Keith Richards!
What do you think of his new style? Do you think it deserves a thumbs up or a sit on it?
Henry Winkler is going to be on Hollywood Game Night on NBC tonight starting at 8p and he plays Clue-Boom against his TV son from Royal Pains, Mark Feuerstein. The game is a fast paced one, where the person up front has to get their teammates to guess the word they are describing. Once their teammates guess the word, they pass the bowl of clues to their opponent who passes back to them when they are done and so on. The reason why it is so fast paced is because there is timer counting down and whoever has the bowl of clues when the clock hits zero, gets Clue-Boomed. Which is basically that bowl of confetti blowing up in your face. Doesn’t sound that bad, right? Well as someone who has been Clue-Boomed, it seriously scares the crap out of you. So did the coolest guy in the ’70s keep his cool tonight? You will just have the watch the best game show on television starting at 8p to find out.
Henry Winkler was a guest on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show today and the shock jock asked The Fonz if he ever curses in his personal life. The nicest guy in Hollywood without any hesitation said, “I love to say the word f*ck!” Ayyyy! Consider my mind blown. I can’t imagine him using that word because he is just so gosh darn swell. But now that I know he cusses, I find him even more attractive. I just love that he is so naughty and so nice!
BTW I am extremely upset that the f*ck was bleeped out because I would love to hear him say the word as is. I would just have to Sit On It. Yeah, I don’t know what that means either.
