It seems comedian Bob Saget, who has seen an incredible resurgence in popularity in the last five years – due to his stand-up touring, his narration duties on How I Met Your Mother and, of course, Comedy Central’s roast in honor of him – has another project in the works. If you’ve been paying attention to his Twitter feed, you’ll already know this. If not, however, the brass at A&E just made it official.
A&E announced that Saget, who’s sitcom Surviving Suburbia was canceled last year after one season, is set to host Strange Days with Bob Saget, wherein the Full House alum “immerses himself in strange cultures, practices and occupations,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Sounds to me like a mix between Discovery’s long-running Dirty Jobs and the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. That may not be a bad thing, since I enjoy both of those shows immensely. Saget will be joining fellow comedian Larry the Cable Guy in the reality show world this year; the Blue Collar comic is hosting a show on the History Channel called Only in America, which sounds like an American-only version of what Saget’s doing. Confused yet?
