Comedy Albums and Television

In 1993, he released You Might Be a Redneck If... which started the "You Might Be a Redneck" fad, topped the comedy album charts, and sold more than three million copies. In 1995, he starred in The Jeff Foxworthy Show, a sitcom created out of his stand-up comedy persona. It aired on ABC, but was canceled after one season. NBC subsequently picked up the show, but it was again canceled after one season. Foxworthy later remarked that the network did not understand how to properly market his humor; thinking his routine was "too Southern" for a national network ("Has anyone heard me talk?", he commented in one of his stand-up routines), they based the first season of his sitcom in Bloomington, Indiana. The run of the show was later seen on Nick at Nite and CMT in 2005 and 2006. Karen, Jeff's wife in the show was played by Anita Barone, his precocious son Matt by Haley Joel Osment and his brother Wayne by comedian Jay Mohr.

He currently is the game show host of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? which airs on FOX on Thursdays. The show also airs in Canada on Global Television Network, in New Zealand on Prime Television New Zealand and in the Middle East on Dubai TV. The UK version of this show, Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?, is shown on Sky One, hosted by Noel Edmonds. Blue Collar Comedy

In the early 2000s, Foxworthy had a career resurgence as a result of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, in which he and three other comedians (Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White, and Bill Engvall), specializing in common-man comedy, toured the country and performed for record crowds. The tour lasted three full years, constantly being extended after an initial run of 20 shows.

 





In 2004, he launched a new television show called Blue Collar TV on The WB Television Network Comedy Central, and Comedy Network (2007). He serves as executive producer, and stars alongside Blue Collar Comedy Tour-mates Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall. (Ron White turned the show down but made occasional guest appearances). The show was relatively successful compared to the anemic performance of the WB's other sitcoms. However, on Larry the Cable Guy's website, he says the show was canceled on October 17, 2005, by the network. Reruns of Blue Collar TV continued until the network merged with UPN to form The CW. Jeff has resurrected the Blue Collar TV format (albeit with only himself participating along with some of the Blue Collar TV co-hosts) called Foxworthy's Big Night Out. which airs on Country Music Television (CMT). Foxworthy's Big Night Out began airing in summer 2006 and was cancelled after one season.

Blue Collar Comedy Radio airs on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 103 and is associated with Raw Dog Comedy on Sirius 104. He also holds the right to QXR 103.4, another blue-collar comedy radio station. Hunting
