THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW Becomes The First Cancellation

TBS has decided to pull the plug on THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW, making it the first official cancellation of the new TV season. Chronic low ratings doomed this series which did have a few fans, but just not enough.

As part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour group. Engvall was an important part. And his TV show managed to capture that part of this folksy but redneck humor style for the most part, although the show was far from ever capturing the popularity of the BLUE COLLAR shows and cable specials.

Engvall's comedy album, HERE'S YOUR SIGN, scored a number #5 hit position on the 1996 U.S. Billboard charts and his single"Here's Your Sign(Get The Picture) with Travis Tritt scored #29 on the country charts in 1997. TBS had hoped that a little of that magic would wear off on their station. However, not enough viewers followed the TV show.
